Oxyfresh Nutrition Vibe Protein Powder Review

As you all know, I love me a good smoothie. I've shared several here on this blog. However, I've never added a protein mix to any of my smoothies before.

Truthfully, I thought adding protein to a smoothie made it more of a "workout shake". I wasn't working out. I just wanted a great combination of my favorite fruits and vegetables. However, when Oxyfresh Nutrition reached out I found that not all protein mixes are used as a pre/post workout additive.

Oxyfresh sent over their Vibe Pea Protein powder in the flavor of vanilla. This Vegan friendly mix is the perfect meal replacement and offers a full serving of 7 nutrient dense greens. You have kale, collards, spinach, cabbage, cilantro, broccoli, and watercress. It's rich in antioxidants, amino acids, and Omega-3s; all essential for proper bodily functions and boosting your immune system. 

I did a quick overview of this protein powder to see what others had to say about it, and I saw tons of great reviews.  I wanted to be sure that if I was going to vouch for this I would enjoy it as well. 

  • I definitely felt full after having one smoothie. Typically with my other smoothies, I require a snack in between. But, by adding the Oxfresh Vibe to my smoothie I didn't require another meal until later in the afternoon. 
  • I felt energized. I didn't feel drained or tired by midday. I actually felt in great spirits and ready to move. 
  • The taste is quite good. Vanilla is a pretty subtle flavor so it wasn't too overpowering. 
  • It's Vegan friendly. It uses a pea protein instead of an animal-based protein.

  • There is a bit of a grainy consistency. I'm not sure if with this protein powder it requires blending a bit longer to eliminate that texture. But, eventually, I did get used to it
  • It's a little too sweet for my liking. Some may find it a perfect balance between vanilla and sweetness. But unlike my other smoothies where I use orange juice or almond milk, I actually prefer to just use water on this one. 

Oxyfresh Nutrition Vibe Protein Powder Review

I really enjoyed this product and plan to use it again. I've already used more than half of the container. It's for sure given me a reason to dabble into more smoothie recipes for you guys and to share them with you all. 

For this smoothie here, I just used a frozen berry mix purchase from my local grocery store. I added 1 cup of water, 1 scoop of the Vibe protein powder, and blended it all together. In the short time frame, I've already begun to notice such positives from using this product. 

A Day at Riverfront Park

Monday, October 5, 2020
Riverfront Park is an amazingly beautiful historic park here in the Charleston area. It's located in North Charleston on the old Naval Base. Although the naval base closed in the mid-90s, there are still some areas that are open to the public.


The park stands as a memorial to pay tribute to the thousands of men and women that served at this here base, but it has definitely evolved over the years. It's a popular spot to view the 4th of July fireworks, tons of festivals are held here, and even concerts are occasionally held at this park. It's truly a great venue.

I decided to bring Liam out here for a day to run around and just get some fresh air one Saturday morning.

Due to the impacts of COVID, I haven't taken Liam to many places. We haven't been to a playground, restaurants, kids' museum, or any place that tends to be heavily crowded. My biggest fear was putting Liam and myself at risk at just the thought of being out.

However, playing in the backyard and drawing on the sidewalk can become so bland after a while. He needed a change in scenery.

What I love about Riverfront Park is that it is pretty secluded. At just the right time of day, you can literally have the park to yourself or pass by a person or two going for a quick morning jog. I knew this place would be perfect to take Liam as I wouldn't have to worry about being in the midst of several others and can still practice social distancing.

The park has had quite a few additions and renovations. For many years the park had been left pretty abandoned as historical buildings simply rotted away. But the city of Charleston has now taken over these buildings and working to restore them.

Liam loved just being able to run freely through the area.


He really needed a change in scenery to be the awesome kid that he is. I'm glad that I was able to take him out here to just enjoy some fresh weather without the worries of coming in contact with others.

We didn't venture over to the side of the park that oversees a larger portion of the Cooper River, but we did get to walk the boardwalk, enjoy the breeze and watch as the waves brushed into the rocks below.

Highly recommend that if you guys are in the Charleston area that you stop by here. The view is beautiful and you can soak in so much of Charleston history.
