I make a smoothie with spinach, mango, cinnamon, vega one nutritional shake, and lion’s mane mushroom.

Solid nutrition is a foundation that takes time to build. Choices you make today are building a stronger body for you 10 years from now!

This is the mushroom I used in the smoothie. It is great for brain and memory, as well as nervous system health.

The Vega One shake that I reviewed in the video today is this one.

Seasonal Green Smoothie With Vega One Shake and Pumpkin Spice

I tried vega one chocolate shake and with was delicious with greens. I make an organic hemp-brazil nut milk and made a smoothie with granola, lots of greens and vega one shake. It was a superfood shake which acted as a good snack (or “meal replacement”).

The vega one comes in individual pack sizes, so it’s convenient to just take one packet, blend it into a smoothie and rest assured that you are meeting all of your baseline nutritional needs. Much better than taking a vitamin supplement.
