Smooth Smoothie!

Last Friday I was out with hunnie while he was buying an iPhone (I am super jealous).  I wondered around the mall where he was, and went into Your Good Health.  I had been looking for some sort of smoothie mix and I did not enjoy Greens+ Smoothie. So I bought Vega Shake and Go in Berry flavor.

Here are the facts about the mix:

Each serving of Vega Shake & Go Smoothie includes:

  • Two servings of veggies
  • 2500 mg Omega-3-6-9
  • 11 g complete protein
  • Only 100 calories
  • 1 billion probiotics cultures

Berry Ingredients:
organic green pea protein, organic coconut palm nectar, flaxseed, hemp protein, organic sprouted brown rice protein, organic green food blend (alfalfa grass, organic kale leaf, organic spinach leaf, organic broccoli sprout, spirulina), natural flavours, xanthan gum, beet powder, digestive enzyme blend, citric acid, malic acid, dairy-free probiotic blend (L. acidophilus, B. bifidum).

I tired drinking it straight, it was ok, a bit grainy although tasted better that the Greens+.  Although I will note that I did choose to make it into a blended smoothie.  I mixed in raspberries and some OJ.  It was great and enjoyable.  I will continue to drink this.  I like that it does not make and claim that it will make you feel more full of energy or that you will see a change in a certain number of days.  They only claim that it mixes well with water and that is true.  I hope to try the other flavours as well.

Do you have a favourite smoothie recipe or brand please do share!


Mini Product Review: Greens+ Smoothie!

First all I have to say is the bag TOTALLY LIES!! My best friend E. is doing a product review of the Greens+ Smoothie and well I had been considering trying those products.  Well last weekend E and her hubby came down to my little B&B.  So Saturday morning before our great adventure (posts to come) E. made up 2 green drinks with apple juice.

It was so not good!!! The bag truely lies!! So I deciede to blend it with some froozen stawberries and ice.  Still no change still tasted HORRID.  FYI Pinching your nose so does not help either.  Well I drank it all. I had to chase each gulp with water.

Note: Just because it says on the outside smooth texture and great taste – be weary. Products LIE!!

The Smarter Smart Food

Mr. Man’s Mom bought new snack this past week and she gave us 2 packets of Smart Food {Cranberry Almond}.  They are small 28g bags with 130 Calories.  There was not alot in the bag. The popcorn is light although it does have a candy coating or sugar coating on some kernals with Cranberry.  I did not taste the Almond.  It was very sweet.

I have been on a high fiber kick lately as it does help with the pain in my Tummy and with a whooping 5g fiber this would be a happy snack for me.  I think I would prefer a different flavor.   Mr. did not mind the snack although he was not asking me to go out and get more.  I might try the other flavors.

My only issue with the snack is for 130 calories I think there would be better snack choices with just as much fiber and would make you feel full longer. Or give you the illusion you ate more with the same amount of calories.

Have you ever tried this snack? What did you think?
