Thorne Research: Comparison of All-in-One Shake with VegaLite
on June 19, 2014
While this appears similar to The Virgin Diet All-in-One Shake, there is actually a Thorne research product better than both. I purchased and compared all three products (Virgin Diet All-In-One-Shake, Thorne Research All-In-One Shake, and Thorne Research VegaLite).
#1 You get the same amount of protein in ONE level scoop of VegaLite (21g) as you do in TWO scoops of All-In-One (22g)
#2 More carbs! The All-In-One has more carbs (14g) compared to the VegaLite (5g)
#3 More fiber! The All-In-One has more fiber (6g) compared to the VegaLite (0g)
#4 Less sodium! The All-In-One has less sodium (350mg) compared to VegaLite (420mg)
#5 Taste: both products taste the same. Pea powder with a chocolate flavoring is my best description. You'll get used to it.
The All-In-One is good if you are looking for fiber and less sodium. The VegaLite is good if you want to save money, you'll need HALF the amount that you need to use with All-In-One. Therefore, you'll need to reorder All-In-One twice as often. If you do not have Amazon Prime then you are also paying shipping costs, an added expense.
My recommendation is the Thorne Research VegaLite Chocolate flavor. When I drink the VegaLite (my preference over the All-In-One-Shake) I use two scoops VegaLite, 2 Tbsp. PB2 Powdered Chocolate Peanut Butter 2 and flaxseed for fiber. My result is that I get 47g protein and 10g carbs in each drink. I'm following the JJ Virgin elimination diet (no gluten, dairy, soy, etc) along with high protein, low carb eating. I mix this together using the Blender Bottle, for a meal replacement.
