I went to a nutrition talk by a Vega rep a few days ago and I'm going to give it a try. I met Brendan Brazier at the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival a few years ago and read part of Thrive but I wasn't doing endurance exercise then. Now I run so I'm going to give it a try. I liked the smoothie I had at at the talk. It was chocolate Vega with coconut milk and banana.

If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!

I agree, the Vanilla Chai flavor is very good. However, the chocolate flavor was quite disappointing when I tried it about a year or so ago.

"Vega (α Lyr, α Lyrae, Alpha Lyrae) is the brightest star in the constellation Lyra, the fifth brightest star in the night sky and the second brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere, after Arcturus. It is a relatively close star at only 25 light-years from Earth, and, together with Arcturus and Sirius, one of the most luminous stars in the Sun's neighborhood..."

Sports drinks?

I thought this was going to be a discussion about the planet we come from.

Love them! I add agave nectar to the Vega Optimizer for sweetness. Use it as a recovery drink after my run/walks.

I have recently starting running again and have been trying out the new Vega products: Pre-Workout Energizer and Recovery Accelerator. I have had fairly good results but was wondering if anyone had thoughts about these or other helpful products...
