Before we get into the WIAW part of this post, I have to tell you (well, my Wednesday-only readers, since the others already know) about something that's been weighing deeply on my heart.
I'm suffering from a serious case of Is It Christmas Yet? and it's no fun to suffer alone. Every day, I tick off the previous day so that I can come one day closer to December 1, when it's officially okay for me to start to celebrate.
But misery loves company.
So I had this dilemma. How could I get some people to join me in my crazy-countdown-to-December-1 syndrome?
Each giveaway will run two weeks, which means that I've already been posting a new giveaway each day since this past Saturday - and today is no exception!
So did it work? Is everyone anxiously awaiting December 1 with me?
I'm a busy college girl and I need my food ;)
But I have been enjoying the benefits of adding more juice to my regular diet! Adding these healthful juices to my regular eats definitely makes me feel better and adds a little pep to my step!
|Yes, still the pep-in-the-step effect, even with the processed mac & cheese (which, by the way, does not come with the cleanse)|
|The juices come with a cooler bag (comfortably fits two bottles and an ice pack) to take your juices on the go.|
They arrive frozen, though (mine were still frozen after sitting on the steps for 8 hours while I was at school!), and while they should only stay defrosted for up to 3 days, you can keep them for longer in the freezer (for example, if you want to order the juices and just drink one or two per day to supplement your usual foods).
Ugh, this one was hard to drink. It's the first drink of the day if you're following the cleanse and you're supposed to drink it warm. I heated it up in a pot of hot water, but I'm afraid drinking it warm didn't do much for the taste. It's...salty.
Since I wasn't cleansing anyway and was just adding in the drinks, I ended up not drinking two of the the three sole bottles.
Oh My Green Goodness! - Apple, cucumber, celery, lemon, spinach, kale, parsley, ground ginger.
There are two of these per day (so I guess this would be considered the staple drink of the cleanse) and they're meant to be the third and fifth drinks of the day.
Energizer Bunny - Apple, carrot, lemon, ginger.
This one is absolutely delicious! I really like carrots, but I don't like carrot juice. This carrot apple juice? So sweet and delicious!! And the ginger and lemon just make it all the more delicious :)
This one is, if you're following the cleanse, the last drink before bed. Even if you're not, like me, this is great as a bedtime snack! Warmed in a hot water bath for a few minutes, it's a delightfully comforting drink that's as delightfully holiday-tasting as a mug of eggnog or spiced cider. But it's healthier! Aka, an awesome Christmas movie night drink :)
But since it's WIAW, I do need some food in here. So how about a big, warm chocolate chip cookie?
The best thing about Doubletree Hotels is definitely the cookies at check-in. YUM.
What's your favorite type of juice?
