Favorite Find: Pre-Workout Formula

January 26, 2011

in Blog, Favorite Finds, Kristine's Favorites

Wednesday already?  I know, I probably say that every week!  I sure wish life would slow down, but I’m sure most (if not all) of you feel the same!

For “Favorite Find Wednesday” this week, I wanted to talk about a pre-workout I take that gives me that extra kick, if I’m feeling tired, fatigued and need a good boost before my workout.  I find it almost necessary if I workout in the evening.  

Vega Sport Performance Optimizer

Why I Like It?

– Plant based
– No stimulants (Many pre-workouts make me jittery or spaced out)
– Tastes good
– No dairy, gluten or soy
– It works!!

Nutrition Facts: Per 1 serving (18g):

Calories 70, Fat 0.5g (1%), Saturated 0g + Trans 0g,
Cholesterol 0mg, Carbohydrate 16g (5%), Fiber 1g (4%),

*Yes, it has some carbs and natural sugar (from brown rice syrup), but its pre-workout so your body burns through the extra carbs.
