The Day I Went Vegan with IdealRaw

Blessed are the days where I only workout once. I still have to pay particular attention to what I consume, but I only have to fuel one workout instead of multiple ones. I definitely do not want to undo the eating discipline I established during the week and fall off the healthy eating wagon. On these lighter activity days, I want to make sure that I’m fueling my body in a way that keeps it nourished and gives it what it needs to recover.

IdealRaw inspired me to go vegan for the day (when in Rome...), which meant that I did not consume any animal products. I mixed all my shakes with water and consumed mostly fruit and vegetables outside of my meal replacements shakes.

Prior to working out for the day, I mixed myself an IdealRaw Organic Chocolate Protein Shake. The shake straight up tasted like a liquefied brownie and I mean that in the best way possible. It was like I threw a vegan brownie into a blender and pushed start. That’s how good it tasted. I’ve been drinking a variety of chocolate protein shakes for a long time, and this is the first one that actually A) tasted like chocolate in brownie -- in my opinion, it’s truest form; and B) filled me up to a where I didn’t feel hungry going into a workout. I actually felt energized and ready to tackle whatever the gym threw at me.

Inside: powdered vegan brownies.

When I talk to my friends and workout buddies who have recently adopted the vegan lifestyle, an immediate concern they have is getting enough minerals and vitamins from fruits, vegetables and grains to adequately fuel their activity level. While I’m not considering going vegan anytime soon, I still want to make sure I’m getting my much-needed daily dose of essentials. IdealRaw’s Superfood is just the supplement I need to make sure that I’m treating my body right on its (semi) rest day.

Superfood is supertasty!

I made another IdealRaw chocolate protein shake and added Organic Super Food to make sure I was getting my recommended dose of fruits and vegetables. It didn’t change the flavor of the shake at all. The shake still tasted like a liquefied brownie, but now it had the punch of super food, too!

When I use Super Food again (and I will, it’s an easy scoop to add to anything), I want to try blending it with ice and some frozen fruit for a quick and nutritious smoothie. Other users have recommended adding frozen pineapple or fresh cantaloupe to their scoop. Like me, none of them report actually tasting the addition of Super Food; they just taste the blended fruit sweetness. Sounds good to me!

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with my vegan day. IdealRaw definitely made it easier by providing delicious, organic protein powders and supplements (for real, it tastes like a liquefied brownie!). I didn’t feel like I was lacking anything heading into my workout; in fact, I felt full and ready to perform at my best.
