So POM Wonderful totally hooked me up. They sent me 12 mini bottles of their delicious pomegranate juice since i’d never had it before. One word…. DELICIOUS! The flavor is amazing and there’s almost a bit of a fizzy bubbly flavor going on as well. Not only is it delicious, it’s EXTREMELY health for you. The juice is 100% authentic pomegranate juice, it’s healthy for your heart, and packed FULLL of antioxidants. I highly recommend it to everyone. You can buy them at most stores but click here to find a store near you.

Thanks Pop Chips!! =)

I have yet to try these delicious snacks, but I can’t wait!

Thanks MacroGreens!

Thanks Macro Greens!

I’ve tried all of the bars from macro greens and they’re all AMAZING! My favorite is the Chocolate and Cinnamon with my second favorite being the Fresh Berri-Berri, and my third favorite the Apple Lemon Ginger. They’re all raw vegan bars that pack a nice punch with all natural energy boosters. I HIGHLY recommend them, they’re awesome!

I’m still working on my Clif Bar review, it’s huge! Keep checking back for more reviews coming soon =]

Back in the saddle again

This past week has quite possibly been the busiest week of my life. College = maddd time consumption. Although I had gone to the gym a few times and ran on the treadmill dreadmill due to the 112 and above temperatures, that just wasn’t cutting it. So, this morning I officially went running outside FINALLY! It felt great, even though it was pretty humid. I just went to bed early and woke up around 6-ish. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was being back on the road. I guess you could say i’m addicted?

So i’ve been eating all of these WONDERFUL food “samples” that all of these great companies have sent me, and I found some realllllly amazing stuff.

ALSO, A quick thanks to Pop Chips and Macro Greens for sending me food. I wish my computer would upload the pictures but i’m having some technical difficulties, so hopefully i’ll have my reviews and pictures up and working soon! I might have to go home just to get this to work. Ahh frustrating!

So anyways, sorry i haven’t been updating as often, the computer service here is slow and half the time internet doesn’t even work! I’ll figure it out though, so keep checking back. Hope everyone is doing well!

Clif Bar is BOMB

The  other day, I received a package in the mail from Clif. This company not only has the best products, but the best customer service as well. In the package I received, I expected a Clif bar or two, something small for me to sample. What I got was a variety of Clif bars, as well as Mojo Dipped bars and various other products from the Luna line. I’m seriously so happy about this! It really made my day =] So, thanks Dean I really appreciate the generous sample pack. I can’t wait to try out EVERYTHING!

Coupons, coupons, coupons!

I just want to thank a few companies really quick, for sending me either coupons or free samples.

Verna from Odwalla sent me a few coupons, including one for a free Odwalla drink! I can’t wait to go to the store and purchase one to try out! Thanks so much Verna and Odwalla!

Amy’s Kitchen was nice and sent me a few coupons as well. Considering i’m a college student, and they have some pretty amazingly tasty frozen meals, these coupons will go to good use. Thanks so much Amy’s Kitchen!

They sent me california trail mix, coconut stars (which are chocolate covered coconut pieces), and dark chocolate covered dried strawberries. Sounds delectable to me! Thanks SO much Oh Nuts!, I can’t wait to order from you in the future!

Officially moved in!

I’m officially a college student! Wow, moving in was crazy and took a lot of time and effort, but i’m happy to say i’m all moved in and ready to rock n roll. College is crazy, and it’s a hard to adjust but i’m doing my best to adapt. I want to go running SO badly but I can’t get to sleep until around midnight to like 2 am and I have to wake up early for all these special assemblies. It’s also 110 degrees out during the day so the only time to get out is between 5 and 6am so I haven’t been able to run and I’m getting this weird anxious feeling. It’s like i’m a drug addict that needs a fix. It’s okay though, i’ll figure something out. When classes start and the weather cools off i’ll be running all the time.

Here’s a pic of my side of the dorm room!

And I’ve tried two of the Larabars I bought! The Pistachio flavor, and the new German Chocolate Cake flavor. Let me just say, wow, these things are dang delicious! And they’re perfect for a college student on the run. They also have like barely any ingredients and the few ingredients they do have are wholesome and nutritious. Seriously, a nice round of applause to Larabar. I can’t wait to try the rest!

 

Pistachio Larabar

Pistachio Larabar:

Very good fruity flavor with a crunch from the pistachio pieces.I LOVE that the bar has only 3 ingredients instead of a bunch of freaky chemical names I can’t pronounce. Can’t wait to try more flavors!

 

 

German Chocolate Cake Larabar

German Chocolate Cake Larabar:

So this is one of the new flavors I guess? Well, let me just start by saying…HOLY MOLY WHAT A BAR! I absolutely loved it! Chocolaty with a coconut undertone and crunchy nut pieces. So dang delicious.

 

The cafeteria food at college is….. alright. They have vegetarian options and all, but the tofu is always drenched in oil and covered in sugar laden sauces and crap. When I asked the cook to make my order with no oil, he made fun of me and made me feel like an idiot in front of all the other kids. It’s a real bummer, but I just want to be healthy and I don’t want to clog my arteries and ruin everything i’ve already worked so hard for with running, etc. I’m trying to get my mom to upgrade me to a food plan that includes meals at the organic dining hall which is super nice but $500 more. Hmmm what to do what to do. Whatever i’ll figure it out.

 

Well i hope everyone is having a good day!
