Heirloom Vegetarian Restaurant Vancouver Brunch

 

Heirloom Vancouver Brunch time is a fairly special treat. The clean crisp white space is intriguing and cozy at the same time. I would suggest you request a seat by the fireplace or by the window to absorb the natural light. Heirloom Vegetarian offers contemporary dining with fresh cocktails, organic wine list, and local craft beers. Who says you can’t drink on Meatless Mondays? But before you jump to conclusions about eating cardboard and erasers; Heirloom is focused on fair traded ingredients and super foods. Better yet, they are open for Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch from 9am to 4pm.

 

Gentlemen, do not fret! You will not go home hungry. Or worse, hangry. The food is actually quite filling and won’t leave you in a comatose!

Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shakes Review

Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shakes Review

Vega One

There are four flavors to Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shakes: French Vanilla, Chocolate, Berry and Natural. After looking up the ingredients and nutritional info I was excited to try it. Vega One is plant-based and is dairy free, gluten-free, soy free and contains contains no added sugar, artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. Vega Health Optimizer is packed with 100% RDI of vitamins & minerals. Learn more>

Each 15 grams servings of protein comes from pea, hemp, sacha inchi, and brown rice protein. The green blend equates to 3 servings of vegetables alone. Also depending on flavors, each serving is between 123 and 141 calories. Instructions says to mix with water, but I usually mix with unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk. Just to be clear, even the water mix was pretty tasty.

So far I have only tried the Vega One French Vanilla flavor and am in love with it. If you try to mix it by hand, the powder is very clumpy and does not dissolve easily. You will need to mix it vigorously, but because I have a Magic Bullet Blender, it takes only 30 secs to blitz.

 

Vega One Nutritional Shakes tastes absolutely delicious and doesn’t have that plastic taste that most whey protein shakes tend to exhibit. Also if you want to mix in fruits, ex blueberries, it is equally delicious and refreshing. Add chia seeds can also be added too.

 

Perhaps the only downside of Vega One is the cost: 69.99 / large tub. That is roughly $3.50 / serving. To stretch your dollar, perhaps you can use half serving scoop instead and add in extra chia seeds. As mentioned before, eating healthy is no easy chore. Vega One provides an all-in-one solution convenient solution.

 

I am not a vegan nor am I a vegetarian so I was initially skeptical whether this will be enough to satiate me and prolong my runs and workouts. Will I get hungry fast after a shake? Currently I am trying to tone up and also a three day workout per week. I definitely recommend Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shakes to anyone. Not just vegans or vegetarians. But to anyone who wants to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle by eating clean, while consuming all the necessary protien and nutrition into their diet.  Also, another way of saving money is to shop the Sequel eStore for Vega, MacaSure, and ChlorEssence products and receive free shipping on all orders over $100.  In additional, with a minimal purchase they will throw in some goodies. Ex. Yoga Hydrating Kit, etc…

 

Let me know what other recipes you’ve tried with your Vega One Shakes. Happy Healthy Eating Everyone!
