Plant-Based Redemption For The Willing And The Waiting: Plant Fusion

You blinked didn't you?  I think so.  You blinked during the winter, opened your eyes from that nanosecond and it's already a month into Spring.  Where does the time go?  Before you know it we will be bombarded with 'Back To School' ads and 'End Of Summer' deals.  It was just a short while ago, wasn't it, that you proclaimed aspirations of reclaiming that fit bod that went away for a time due to the cozy comforting culinary delights of Winter.  Now here it is almost halfway to Summer and about a month away from the unofficial start of Summer and what do you have?  A questionable waistline and regrets.  Don't get frantic, get started!

I, for one, am always looking for ways to live my best life by examining what I would like to do versus what I am doing all pushed up against always assessing how I think about doing things.  With my two year vegan anniversary a little over a week away, I have discovered the powerful coercive physiological aspect of food and how I don't have to subscribe to how things were always done.  I inform myself then think for myself based on what I've learned.  Over the past two years I've learned that I don't need whey and dairy in my protein powders to get the protein I need.  This is why I was glad to be introduced to Plant Fusion at a recent Editor's Showcase here in NYC.

Plant Fusion is a line of plant-based proteins that has a complete vegan assortment within their selection of shakes and powders.  Through sourcing garden-fresh ingredients from non-GMO produce and ensuring high quality standards for exceptional flavors, Plant Fusion speaks to those seeking plant-based protein choices that speak to individualized needs.  For example, they offer their 1:1 Fats & Protein powder that uses good fats and takes then from oil to powder form then blends it  with a high-alkaline plant-based protein.  You feel fuller longer and gain energy without sugar.  This is also the case with their Complete Lean protein powder whose prebiotic fibers and probiotics aid in digestive health, sustaining energy and supports healthy blood sugar levels.  Their Fermented Superfood Protein powder supports those seeking enhanced immunity, gut health and energy.  Meanwhile, their Collagen Builder is the first plant based shake that supports new collagen building, hydrates skin and joints with plant-based ceramides and protects existing collagen. 

So based on what you are seeking, all of Plant Fusion's proteins are candidates for pre and post workout shakes.  Along with Complete Lean, finishing out their 'Complete' line is Complete Meal, a perfectly balanced meal replacement that also builds and repairs muscle and Complete Protein, (my favorite) whose 21g of protein feeds the muscles, digests easily and is dairy, soy and gluten free.  What's even better is that Plant Fusion is free from the dry chalkiness that many plant-based protein powders can have.  It blends up smoothly and tastes natural and not overly processed with the unnatural sweetness.  Check out my post-workout smoothie recipe, that I swear by, below for a great pre or post workout smoothie suggestion then head on over to and learn more about their complete line of plant-based power.  You've just been briefed and what to ingest so now all you have to do is meet it halfway with the motivation and the movement.
