I already did a review post and first impressions on my channel about these products. I bought one of three flavours back in June from Target just to test the product. To my surprise, the one that I was most hesitant about is my favourite one. Green Magic, and Blackberry Bliss. Green Magic was out of stock so it didn’t come in the mail with the Berry one. But it will come next week. I had a bit of a sweet tooth for beverages. These are not beverages, but I hope products like these help kick the Coca cola addiction. I prefer to have this refrigerated instead of keeping them in my cabinet In truth I really don’t like eating fruit on it’s own. Despite my bad habits with food, I enjoy my veggies. Corn, pea’s, string beans, broccoli *♥*, etc. I still enjoy the taste of fruit. But I find it uninteresting to eat on it’s own. Especially since you have such a short window to eat it Drinking/eating stuff like this insures that I get my fruits and veggies in.
People have heard me bang on about these since I first tried them. Their expensive, but no where near as expensive as what I was originally planning to get. I’m considering getting another 12 pack this weekend from Orgain. These are amazing for me. I’m someone who hates having any solid food for breakfast and I snack with an aggression. When I was intensely hungry in between lunch and dinner, I had one of these and the hunger (and grumble) went away. 16 grams of protein with amazing ingredients like Kale, Beers, Spinach, Carrot, Tomato, Banana, Acai, Apple, Raspberry, Organic Grass Fed Milk, Whey protein, so on and so forth. To me it tastes like a very light (but thick in consistency) chocolate milk. I’m am certainly going to buy more. These help so much.
These products are not a necessity for everyone. I bought the calm drops because most often times my anxiety sits in my stomach, and has a very unhealthy way of manifesting. I’ve lost hair in the past, sleep, and on rare occasions panic attacks. I heard of Calm Drops from Beauty by Britanie. She’s one of my favourite natural bloggers. A lot of the purchases I have made in the past is inspired from what I read on her blog. I’m not left with disappointment. So I will be carrying calm drops in my purse if needed. Nuun I decided to buy after I heard about them from one of my friends in Newfoundland. Apparently he took a tablet every time he knew he was going to be drinking later on. But thats not the reason why I decided to buy them. Since moving up north I have been experiencing weight gain (mostly because of my bad habits), headaches, ulcers, and several other issues. It wasn’t till I researched I realised I’ve been having issues with perpetual dehydration. Now a days I have to be more careful with what I drink, and how much water I should have to keep myself from getting dehydrated. That means keeping these tablets with me and having water on me whenever I step out of the house.
I truly thought I was allergic to peanuts. The one time I had them, I started having this tingling sensation on the sides of my mouth with rashes, and numbness on my tongue. But when I have this I’m totally fine. I’m questioning this supposed peanut allergy I have. But anyway, to get to the point, I LOVE these bars. I have them in the fringe as we speak. Which most people wouldn’t do. But I like my foods/drinks cold. the combination of dark chocolate, sea salt, honey is a brilliant combo. I tried to make them on my own with almonds and failed. I wish I bought more of these. I decided to get only 6 of them.
I think you can tell how much I enjoy the products I bought. Especially since I plan on buying more once I get my next payment. Making these small changes in my diet a long with the bigger ones have helped massively.
