Nuzest

I always have plenty of Nuzest on hand because it’s my go-to protein source for smoothies!

Clean Lean Protein is not just any protein; it comes from the highest quality European Golden Peas, which contain the most potent of all vegetable proteins. It contains ALL your essential amino acids and it’s SUPER easy to digest.

Nuzest is 100% vegan, raw, and suitable for a paleo diet, making their Clean Lean Protein the perfect choice for everyone from children to seniors and busy parents to professional athletes.
Be sure to check out our interview with Nuzest-USA CEO, Jonny Edwards.

Vitamix Blenders

A Vitamix Blender was one of the very first purchases we made when we decided to go plant-based back in 2013. We are happy to say our Vitamix is still going strong!  

You can read our review of the blender here.
