You know how when you are watching what you eat, counting calories or cutting back sugar or doing something great for your body you weigh every single thing that goes into your food. I don't mean on a scale, I mean each choice. Well, I get like that when I am revving things up, trying to get stronger , watching what I eat. When I have my cheat day every Saturday , I make sure that whatever I do eat is worth the sugar, calories or fat. Let's take yesterday, Saturday for instance. I was invited and attended my cousin's baby shower. Included in this event was a giant buffet of food, catered by a bbq place. Delish, and truthfully one of my fave kinds of cuisine. I will come back to this buffet in another blog post. First, on the way to the shower, I wanted to eat something. Something light, but something filling that would keep me from busting a gut eating sweets or appetizers (they always get me).
So I grabbed a Sambazon Protein drink for the hour and a half drive to the shower (start time: 3pm). Right between 2 meals for me. O M G it was like a super delicious scrumptious decadent dessert. Last week was my sugar detox and although I really do crave salty snacks over too sweet ones, I was craving something berrylicious or chocolately or just something yummy. This Sambazon drink hit the spot. Let's start with the packaging:
Love the purple, brown and green earthy colors, they were easy to spot in the organic food refrigerated section at Hannaford. The hardest part was picking only 2 of the amazing flavors to try. I settled on Acai Berry and Chocolate and Chocolate Almond and Coconut Milk. Yum, right?
The CACM was super refreshing. I popped it open in the car and sipped on it during my ride with Ana. It tasted like a dessert. Rich, tasty, delicious. Refreshing. Sweet, but not too sweet. Almond-y but with that tiny bit of coconut. Like drinking a healthy candy bar.
Now, lets get to the ingredients:
Organic Acai Juice, Organic Soymilk, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Coconut Cream, Natural Almond Flavor.
YUM! Lots of Omegas, Vegan, Gluten Free, USDA Organic, Non GMO Verified, and So good for me! And here is the best part. You can try some too. I am giving away a couple of coupons and a beautiful wooden bowl and spoon set here so you can jump on the Sambazon love bus like me.
