All thoughts are entirely my own.
Between my husband and myself, I’m more likely to eat and finish my vegetables in a meal full of them than him. According to my mother, I grew up snacking on raisins or fresh fruits instead of chips. She said that I used to like fresh carrots, but eventually despised them. Roan, however, only eats very few vegetables that he’s familiar with, which is proving to be a challenge for me.
Roan and I are advocates of choosing home-cooked meals over takeouts. The last six months of living together proved that not only is home-cooking cheaper, it promotes a healthier lifestyle, too. Recently, I confessed about my demons, and decided to do something about it. Call it coincidence or divine intervention, but imagine my excitement when an overnight delivery from Daily Greens arrived at my doorstep.
I received two sets of their new Probiotic Half Pint Smoothies in three different flavors:
- Greenie – a fruit-and-greens blend with apple and spinach
- Berry Nice – a combination of mixed berries with beets and spinach
- Cocoa Loco – a chocolate smoothie with fair trade cocoa, hemp seeds, and wheatgrass
I thought Roan needs more nutrients from fruits and vegetables than I do, so I gave one set of Probiotic Half Pint Smoothies to him. Roan’s favorite flavor among the set was the Cocoa Loco, while mine was the Greenie. We loved that they taste like any other fruit smoothie out there; the only difference is that these were cold-pressed. Such process allows the fruits and vegetables to keep more of their fresh ingredients’ nutrients intact. In addition to that, these smoothies were infused with 500 million colony-forming units (CFUs) to support your immune system as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
Did you know that we need to eat at least 7 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables daily? Daily Greens has 9 servings of raw, organic vegetables and fruits pressed into each bottle. Drinking Daily Greens may serve as a meal replacement (dinner is your best bet) or a 4-day cleansing detox. Roan and I might try the latter one of these days! I have high hopes that Roan will take his greens more now that the Daily Greens is here!
Available in a 12-bottle variety pack at San Diego-area Costco stores for $23.39, the Probiotic Half Pint Smoothies are crafted with certified organic and non-GMO greens, fruits, cold-pressed juices and ingredients that are sourced locally in Austin, TX. With up to six grams of protein and three grams of fiber in each bottle, the Probiotic Half Pint Smoothies are a delicious way for consumers to add some extra nutrition to their diet.
