Once again, I have a giant bucket of chocolate in my refrigerator. Did I have a good Easter? Obviously, yes. Did I have too much of the aforementioned chocolate yesterday? Repeat: Obviously, yes. I just...I can't say no. So there. Secret's out. Except, let's be honest, my love for chocolate was never really a secret. So let's just move on to more important things. Like running. More specifically, training for the Chicago Women's Half Marathon in June.
The legs are still feeling strong, so that's good.
(In the essence of full disclosure, I should warn you that I'm about to talk about a few products that were sent to me free of charge. I wasn't paid to provide my opinions. In fact, I considered myself a fan before this opportunity ever presented itself. So, continue reading if you'd like to learn more about...)
There's much ado in the fitness world about protein supplementation. I don't like whey protein, so I'm always on the lookout for plant-based protein. 'Course, I would rather cook up an egg or eat a nice piece of chicken but that's not always possible. Which is why I like to have some protein powder or protein bars on hand. But I am very picky about these two things.
So far, I've had no complaints about Vega brand powders and bars. They're definitely on my list of favorites.
I can't remember where I found them for the first time. Probably at Whole Foods in Chicago or Down to Earth in South Bend. Two of my favorite stores. Neither of which are in my hometown. So that means I hardly ever have any plant-based protein powder on hand. I could order it but the stuff, no matter what brand you choose, is expensive so I hate paying for shipping—which is why I jumped for joy when Vega selected me to test out a few of their products. Why, yes...yes I will. Thanks for the package:

Anyway, back to the Vega products. I've still got some bars to nosh on but, once again, I'm fresh out of the powders. Lucky for me, a Whole Foods is opening up in South Bend in nine days (not that I'm counting or anything).
My paycheck is so in trouble.
