Last week on Instagram I posted a question about fueling runs with products that have ingredients you can’t pronounce. If you have to Google an ingredient or don’t know what it is, should you really be putting it in your body? I’m specifically referring to products that contain chemical additives, preservatives and the like.
Coincidently (or not) on that same day Vegan Cuts posted an Instagram promotion for their protein Vegan Athlete Box. Vegan Cuts is one of those monthly subscription services that sends you a box with a variety of products. Their samples include vegan and cruelty free items.
Vegan Cuts’ Athlete Box was a collaboration with Matt Frazier of No Meat Athlete. As I mentioned back in June within the Midtown Raleigh half-marathon race recap [READ: #RapOnTheRun: Midtown Raleigh Race 13.1 Half Marathon Race Review], I’ve been reading the No Meat Athlete blog for ideas, tips and inspiration on following a plant-based lifestyle as a runner.
Since the Vegan Cuts Vegan Athlete Box was only $21, had free shipping and included 12 plus protein products, I decided to give the product a try. It was my first time ordering a subscription box and also trying the Vegan Cuts brand of service.
Y’all can watch my Vegan Cuts Athlete Box review after the jump!
Above is a picture and below is a list of the items that came in my box:
Ziggy Marley Sea Salt & Pepper Hemp Seeds Snack
Ziggy Marley Orange Almond Coconut Oil
Deeply Rooted Blueberry Roots Drink Powder (2 packs)
Ultima Replenisher Electrolyte Powder (2 packs)
Uber Greens Super Foods Blend (4 packs)
Skratch Exercise Hydration Mix (2 packs)
Nutiva Hemp Protein (2 packs)
Be Bright Oil Blend Super Food (2 packs)
Greenbody Tea Tree & Rosemary Natural Deodorant (0.15 oz)
Nii Berry Cashew Bar
MCT-Lean Vegan Protein Blend Shake Vanilla (2 packs)
U|B Super Protein Superfood Shake Vanilla (1 pack)
Naturade Vegan Smart Shake Vanilla (1 pack)
Organic Gemini Guarana Energy Coconut Water (2 boxes)
I paid $21 for everything listed above. I went to a couple of shopping websites and calculated the box’s value to be around $50. That doesn’t include how much shipping would have cost. It was a pretty good deal if y’all ask me. I’m looking forward to trying all of the products!
