Fueling with VitaCost

I was happy when I opened the box and saw all these goodies!

 

Immediately my husband, kids and I tore in to the orange chocolate bar.

It was really good. I really liked the hint of the orange flavor. Yummy!

I always am a firm believer in paying it forward. So I took in the Quest bars to my CrossFit box and shared those with the coaching staff. I honestly had no idea that Quest bars were THE BAR at my box, so these things went FAST!! I heard some of the coaches talking about how they like to let them warm up in the car and then eat them and they are nice, soft and gooey!

I was really excited about trying the protein drinks. I have been really struggling with finding a great tasting post-wod protein drink.

First I tried the Vanilla. Normally I am not a fan of vanilla, but this one was GOOD! I had also never had Chai before so the taste of cinnamon surprised me, but once I got used to it (took about 3 sips) I was good to go.

This has been the drink I've been going back to time and time again. I have yet to try the chocolate one.

I did try the True Whey and it was tasty, too. But it needed more vanilla flavor, so on the second day, I added 2 scoops instead of the one that's recommended. It made all the difference in the world.

I had heard of Vitacost but had never ordered anything from them before. I found their prices to be competitive with companies like GNC and Whole Foods. And I love that they deliver right to my house. I hate shopping so having it arrive on my front door was priceless!

The products that I received can be ordered here:

Smoothie Choc-A-Lot  Drink

Super Cacao Mandarin Orange Chocolate Bar (this was so yummy!!)

True Whey Vanilla

Vanilla Chai (my FAVORITE!!)

Quest Chocolate Protein Bar (my CrossFit box LOVES these!)

You can connect with Vitacost through all forms of social media!

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram!!

 

How do you fuel before/after your workout?? If you have received the gift package that I received which item do you think would have been your favorite?? I was surprised that the Vanilla Chai was my favorite!!

We use Almond milk in our house and love it! Those bars sound and look really good too!!

I'd probably enjoy the Super Cacao Mandarin Orange Chocolate Bar the most. I haven't found a good fuel for my pre and post workout meals yet.

I have always wanted to try Almond Milk for the longest time but haven't yet. My Husband and I decided just recently to live a healthier lifestyle thus these products are good options.

I'm a big fan of vitacost...I love that I can order pretty much anything health/nutrition I need from them and it comes right to my front door!
