I first tried Plant Fusion at the Richmond Vegetarian Festival in June.
Following an e-mail that began something along the lines of, “Hi! You might remember me as the redheaded food blogger with three cameras who was trying to network and instagram while simultanously begging for free samples?”Scott from Plant Fusion delivered on the promise made at the festival, and what has followed is nothing less than a protein pow(d)ered spiral of obsession.From hiking in the Adirondacks–where I discovered that even just mixed with water, the Vanilla Bean tastes like cake—–to mixing up the Chocolate in my first ever protein shake, paired with my oatmeal for a post-workout breakfast.It wasn’t long before those two worlds collided and turned a passion for Plant Fusion into an oatshake obsession.
And when the weather turned colder, I turned to proats.Pr-oatmeal started in a humble place…
Unflavored Plant Fusion has just a subtle sweetness which makes it perfect for adding into baked goods, like my Spiced Peach and Date Protein (and Fiber) Bars. Chocolate Raspberry is a revelation in feel-good-about-it richness, and was, in fact, the very first attempt at goop I (how)ever (accidentally) made.
From a simple spread on graham crackers with apples……my goopaliciousness only continues to exceed my expectations–—and wildest imaginings.
I am now in posession of a full-sized tub of all four flavors of Plant Fusion–in fact, I just recently had to purchase second tub of the Vanilla Bean. It is a constant part of my breakfast and afternoon snack concoctions, and I don’t think I need to spend much more time raving about how much I love it.*
*For a girl who once proclaimed she didn’t ‘get’ protein powder to actually purchase some really should say it all.
And now, I get to help one of you grow a passion for Plant Fusion, too!
[Like that somewhat connected metaphor…grow…plants….maybe?]
The company has graciously offered to send one lucky Smartypants follower her (or his) own full-sized tub and set of sample packs to try.
Want to follow my proatastic, oatshakin’ goop-steps with this vegan, easily digestible combination of pea,artichoke, amaranth, and quinoa proteins?
Of course you do.
