This is a sponsored post. I received a free sample packet of Everlast VP Pro Vegan Protein Mix from Everlast Nutrition and Blogdash for review. All opinions, as well as photography, are my own.
The name Everlast has been somewhat of a fixture in my home since I was a little girl. Growing up I always watched my dad watching the boxing greats. Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard and Holyfield were men my dad cheered on as a hobby. He also had a gym in our garage where he would box and workout.
Though I may not remember any details from any of the matches, I was after all, only five years old, I do remember his red Everlast boxing gloves.
I always felt so cool sneaking them and pretending to box, my tiny little arms dwarfed by the over-sized gloves. It was a symbol of strength and ability. And I liked that.
They say many things in life come back around, and when I was honored to be asked to be a Brand Ambassador for Everlasts' new vegan protein line, the little girl in me grinned.
I am always happy to get behind a product that promotes a healthy and fitness driven lifestyle, so I had to try their new protein powder - as smoothies for breakfast when I'm busy are my life.
Now, do keep in mind that the powder is not 100% Paleo, due to the inclusion of rice protein, but since I handle rice in moderation, and it's found in my other prescribed, anti-inflammatory powders, I weighed the pros against the cons, and the Everlast powder is a win in my book.
If you are vegan, and can tolerate rice, this is a great option. It's a vanilla-flavored blend of pea, rice and hemp protein and packs a whopping 22 grams of protein per serving. That's over half my daily requirement for my weight! AND, NO GMOS and NO SUGAR. It's naturally sweetened with Stevia. Win and win again.
If you'd like to try it for yourself, you can visit www.EverlastNutrition.com - and they are currently having a sale!

On top of all that goodness, right now they are giving away a free workout shirt with every order while supplies last. Free clothes are always a plus! And OF course, I wouldn't leave you guys hanging without a smoothie recipe. The protein powder blends beautifully with many juice, fruit or veggie options, or you can even drink it in water. I myself prefer a fruit and veggie smoothie for added fiber and vitamins to pair with the powders stellar amino acid profile.
