Today I tried the Vegan Complete Whole Food Meal Replacement, Chocolate flavour. I tried it just mixed with water and I have to say that it’s not my favorite thing in the world to consume. But I’ve heard that no protein powders are very good, so I won’t take my distaste for this too seriously.

The thing with this stuff is that it is made from awesome stuff like hemp protein, yellow pea protein, flax seed, and brown rice protein. All very good for you. In the ingredients list, it even lists Omega-6 and -3 in it.
Here is the Nutrition Facts:

Anyway, the peculiar taste is definitely worth all the good stuff that is in it. After my feel-good bike ride, it was exactly what I needed.
