This is my breakfast every morning. I mix it with about 2 cups of skim milk and a teaspoon of natural peanut butter. Below is my all time favorite brand:
This drink is awesome. Why? Here are just some of the ingredients: Organic Vegetable Blend (carrot, broccoli, tomato, cucumber, kale, spinach, parsley, abbage, celery, cauliflower, green bell peppers, asparagus, brussels sprouts, onion, garlic, ginger), Organic Fruit Blend (apple, grape, grapefruit, orange, pineapple, lemon, lime, cherry, watermelon, pear, mango, strawberry, papaya, tangerine, apricot) with lots of other stuff. The kicker?
IT TASTES REALLY, REALLY GOOD (it's chocolate). The key is to mix it with skim milk and not water. Water with it is disgusting. Milk makes all the difference in the world. The packet has 100 calories, 2 cups of skim milk is about 180 calories, and a teaspoon of peanut butter is another 100 calories.
I have been drinking this stuff every day for almost a year now and man alive, I crave it and miss it when I skip a day. Honestly.
Oh so tasty.
And it fills me up until lunch. I drink it on my way to work each morning. I leave my house at 7:00 a.m. and am finished with it by about 7:15 a.m. I then don't take a lunch break until around 12:00 noon. And I'm not hungry until then. Awesome.
Here is their website if you're interested (http://taralarue.myforevergreen.org/) . It's not cheap ($39.00 for a box of 12), but for me, getting all those veggies and fruits into my diet is well worth the price. And the more you buy at once, the cheaper it is per packet.
Anyway, I don't have a computer at home and my blogging is done at work. I have Monday off, so I will not be adding to this blog until Tuesday the 6th.
Have a most WONDERFUL holiday weekend everyone. Be safe, have fun, and enjoy your family!
