Hi there and happy Monday. It’s “Birthday Week” for me, so I am all smiles today (I want to enjoy my last few days as a 25-year-old). Another thing that makes me smile is discovering new “health nut” products.
As I’m writing up this post, I am remembering one more recent find that I forgot to include in the documented photos. Let’s just say, I may have a cocktail post coming your way…
Purely Elizabeth Products
The founder, Elizabeth, is a fellow IIN grad — but that’s not the sole reason why I am digging Purely Elizabeth products. The ingredients are high quality, always gluten-free, and typically low in sugar. I devoured the Ancient Grain + Puffs Cereal long before these photos were snapped.
Vega One Nutritional Shake
I have never been a protein shake kind of girl. I know that may go against my gym rat reputation, but I don’t own a shaker bottle. In all honestly, I’ve had this ginormous tub of vanilla protein powder in my cupboard for some time, and it wasn’t until recently that I decided to dig in. I typically mix a scoop with Silk® Unsweetened Cashewmilk (another favorite). The nutritional stats on this vegan product are impressive: 20 grams of plant protein, probiotics, fiber, and six (!) servings of greens to name a few.
Vega Maca Capsules & Powder
Maca is a superfood. I have either been taking 1 capsule in the morning with breakfast, or incorporating the powder into various snacks (i.e. Maca Hemp Energy Bites). I have also sprinkled it on cereal (weird?) and stirred into creamy oatmeal.
I have a new addiction. I have known about these bars for years (my first recall if from my early college days: my dance teacher ate them for breakfast); but, nonetheless, I rediscovered them (thanks, Mom!) and I am whole-heartedly infatuated. I think the long(er) ingredient list once intimidated me, but it’s all whole foods.
The peanut butter and almond butter varieties (my two favorite) offer a caloric punch at 300+ calories per bar – but since calories from whole foods don’t frighten me – I gladly devour a bar for a hefty snack. These suckers hold me over for hours (3 to 4!). I enjoy them so much that I now order them for our healthy vending machines at work (I am not the only fan – they sell out fast!). Bonus: Costco has a variety pack for a screaming deal.
Have you tried any of these products? What “health nut” finds are you loving lately?
