  1. I'd love to try this protein powder. I've been using Vega recently but I'm interested in finding something even better.

    1. Garden of Life is great! They are always coming out with new products, too!

  2. I've never tried this brand before (or heard of it!) I always like trying out new protein powders for smoothies.

    1. I really do like Garden of Life - they have a slew of different product - many are vegan and even raw :)

  3. I'd love to try this brand. The first one I tried has an overwhelming chalky taste.

    1. Chalky tasting powders aren't fun...this one was really smooth!

  4. We have started adding protein powder to our smoothies and are really interested in trying out different vegan brands.

    1. I love trying different vegan brands, too, Garden of Life is a great company with wonderful offerings!

  5. Ohhh, I love giveaways! And I'm loving your blog!

    I found your blog through a Sustainable Living Blog Link Up site.. trying to find some like minded bloggers to network with! So I thought I would stop by and say hi! It would totally make my day if you did the same!! Or better yet, keep in touch! <3 -
