Though I'm not in the States this Thanksgiving, and won't have any of the bruhaha around the holiday, I'd still like to celebrate it in my own way. Though Christmas is, by far, my favorite holiday, I do really like one thing about Thanksgiving - the way that it gets us to think of what we're thankful for!
So here's my Thankful Thanksgiving Giveaway!
I got the chance to try chocolate Greens 8000 the other day...
...which was pretty exciting, since I've never tried a powdered green drink before, but do really enjoy the protein shake taste. I know, I'm weird... :P
According to instructions, you're supposed to take it on an empty stomach at least 20 minutes before a meal (so first thing in the AM is a good idea). Mix it with juice, water, or into a smoothie...
...I stuck with water, since I wanted to just see what it tasted like itself. Then you stick it in this complicated-looking shaker cup...
....and shake, shake, shake it up! I might have had too much fun with this step. *Insert head-banging and jumping around to loud music here*.
WOW - it was delicious. I was expecting it to taste like chocolate grass (um, yeah...that's why I'd been putting off trying it) but it tasted like a deliciously sweet chocolate shake! Super craveable!
Does this sound like a great travel snack to anyone else? Whenever I'm actively traveling (ie: on planes or running around London), I seem to have unusual trouble getting my veggies in. These will definitely be a staple!
Especially since, though I just ate it with an apple and planned on having breakfast in 20 minutes, it kept me full for a whole hour - hard to do when my early morning breakfast-craving monster is bouncing around in my stomach! I also had waaaay more energy all day...weird. But awesome!
You can learn more about Greens 8000 here (there are several different flavors!), but it's pretty much dried down veggies in concentrated form, with ridiculous amounts of antioxidants and such benefits as improved hair/nail growth, raised energy levels, and general health improvements. Since it's sweetened exclusively with Stevia, it's safe for diabetics too (and super-sweet and yummy!).
If you froze it into a popsicle, it would make one healthy, tasty dessert...hmmmm.
ANYWAY, do you want to win some Greens 8000 (and a snazzy shaker cup) of your own? Then enter my Thankful Thanksgiving Giveaway! Open only to US-based readers.
