I know you guys are going to think I'm making some kind of commission from the Vega sales with all the plugging I do, but I thought I would share this with you...got new literature in at work regarding the nutritional value of the powder mix:
1 serving of Vega equals:
Calcium = 5 cups of Milk
Fiber = 7 Slices of Whole Wheat Bread
Omega 3 = 6 oz Wild Salmon
Chlorophyll = 1 Head of Lettuce
Vitamin E = 23 cups of Spinach
Iron = 29 oz. of Beef
Potassium = 6 Bananas
Protein = 4 eggs
Antioxidants = 1 cup of Blueberries
Probiotics = 100 g of Probiotic Yogurt
I'm taking this on my camping trip to help stay raw!

2x the Protein of any other seed or grain-equal to 44 grams of kidney beans
5x times the Calcium of milk
Boron-trace mineral that helps transfer calcium into your bones
High Antioxidants-equal to 15 grams of blueberries
Magnesium-equal to 73 grams of spinich
Iron-equal to 103 grams of spinach
Omega 3 & Omega 6 which are essential oils for the body
90% soluble Fiber, which is beneficial for your digestive track-equal to 17 grams of bran
Helps keep your body hydrated
People use the seeds when they are involved in physical activities for endurance
Helpful for people who have trouble controlling their sugar levels like Diabetics
Help emulsify & absorb the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E, & K
Because the carbohydrates are released slowly you will get the feeling of being full.

Rather stick to raw foods!!
To supplement my workouts I use hemp protein powder or hemp butter raw and fabulous!
However 90% of the time, just raw food or juice! works great for me..train 3 times a day:D

I also figured out something :D
It would cost me $80.45 a month to use this product. I go to the gym 5 days a week and drink a shake after every workout. There is no way I can afford it unless someone donates it to me or the price comes waaaayyyy down. As great as it is, I think $$68.95 for 15 servings is a little out of control.
$4.60 per serving. EEEK.
