It’s always been cool to watch my husband wake up at 4:30 each morning just to leave the house and workout for close to 4 years. Even though I’ve always hated gyms and working out, his dedication and commitment to be better was inspiring. Even watching him strive to change his diet and research the best supplements was great for me to see. His results were and are still amazing! Halfway through his journey, (…and I knew this was going to happen) he asked me to join him at the gym.

Might I remind you all that I’ve always hated gyms and working out.

So suffice it to say, I wasn’t looking forward to this day, but I was kind of excited. I wanted to challenge myself to do something that I disliked, but looked forward to the great results. Well, I tried it and didn’t like it. Everything from the actual working out to the whey protein – YUCK!

I decided to let this be my husband’s “thing.”

Soon after, I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I had a choice of tons of medications or dietary changes along with daily exercising – Really?

Yep, I jumped right back on the workout bandwagon!!!!

Once I started working out, because it was for my health – I guess, I liked it – a lot! But the post workout drink was still a problem. I knew that it was important for me to find something that was great tasting and that fit my vegetarian lifestyle. Initially, I tried all of the protein shakes that my husband used and even a few so-called vegan/organic protein shakes; plain along with fruit and vegetables and still had a variety of issues from, nausea, headache, awful taste, upset stomach and even constipation. I thought I’d never find anything.

That was until recently. I was sent a nutritional vegan protein shake called, VeganSmart. It’s a plant based vegan blend all-in-one nutritional shake by Naturade that’s naturally flavored and sweetened. It was very simple to prepare and tastes really good. The powder is smooth, smells great and mixes easily and quickly in the shaker cup. A few shakes and I was drinking an amazing and healthy addition to my daily regimine. It wasn’t chalky either. The instructions say to mix it with 12oz of water, but I mixed it with almond coconut milk initially. After a few times with the milk, I decided to mix it with water and it was just as good, if not better.

I did a six-day review of the Wild Berries, Chocolate, Chai and Vanilla flavors. Let me first say that I really had to gear myself up for this review, because I have NEVER liked any protein shake that was, either chocolate or vanilla, especially; there was always this chalky, medicinal taste to them, but then you throw in a chai and wild berries. To my excitement – ALL of the VeganSmart flavors were incredible.

For six-days, during and post workout, I’d split the shake up and drink half during my workout and once I cooled down, finish the other half. I had none of the former adverse issues. I felt great, had incredible energy all day, no bloat, no stomach issues and I felt completely nourished – I felt complete!!

Naturade’s VeganSmart is now my go-to post workout protein drink. I’ve yet to try it with my organic fruit and veggies and I’m truly looking forward to sharing that with you as well.

Not only did I find something that tastes great, I found something that is a complete protein blend, Whole Foods complex, 22 vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega blend, pre-biotics, and digestive enzymes blend
