I posted about my new exercise routine that I started at the beginning of this year here. Recently I fell off the P90X wagon — mostly because I was getting bored of doing 1 hour long workouts over and over again. But I didn’t want to stop exercising altogether, so I started doing 30 minute cardio and aerobic workouts watching you tube videos.

After a workout I try to drink a healthy smoothie (either by adding protein powder or peanut butter or chia/ hemp seeds). Recently Sunwarrior reached out to me to do a review on their new product line — Classic Plus.

Like all the other Sunwarrior products, Classic plus is also based on the original rice protein and has added amino acid balancing effects of peas, chia seeds, quinoa and amaranth. Read more about it here.

Plant based proteins generally have gritty texture and leave an aftertaste. But the vanilla flavored Sunwarrior’s protein powder smelled amazing (my daughter thought it was vanilla ice cream) and tasted even better. No tell tale signs of the protein powder in either taste or texture. I served it to my picky husband and he loved it too. I would totally recommend this to anyone looking for a good (tasting) plant protein.

Scroll all the way down to see how you can win a Sunwarrior Starter kit.
