The Vega Whole Food Health Optimzer (WFHO) is desisned more like a complete 'meal', it's an all-in-one kind of supplement. The packets or snack packs are 1/2 a serving or 1 scoop for the bucket. Price per serving , the big tub is the way to go. Breakfast is a great time to use it. I put a whole serving with a banana and some frozen berries in the blender for my 'breakfast'. The Vega Sport performance protein is designed to be a protein supplement for post workout/activity recovery, simple short chain plant proteins and some BCAAs to get to the muscles quick; intended to prevent soarness.
Matt G said:This is a ton of information guys, I admit it will take a while to go through. Debates like these can be healthy, but I'm not against eating a certain way, I just know I've tried raw and it does not appeal to me. I am much happier eating a vegetarian/vegan diet and substituting a lean cut of beef/venison and a piece of fish now and then.
So let's say I was eating a healthy diet. How would I use the Vega products? Right now I am taking 30g (1 packet) of complete health food health optimizer for breakfast, usually a leftover vegan meal for lunch and then we cook a vegan meal for dinner. Meals generally include a ton of veggies, brown rice, and we try to include beans or other proteins (lentils) a few times a week. Am I using the Vega product correctly? Should I be using more than 1 packet? (8oz seems like very little) I purchased the packets because I didn't want to commit to the $80 bottle.
Also, I see that there is a sport product from Vega with a higher protein content. Does anyone use this in conjunction with the whole food health optimizer while working out?
Thanks for all of your comments thus far. I really appreciate it.
