Product Spotlight!

January is almost over (can you believe it?! No...me either). 
That being said, I know a lot of you guys have health & fitness goals for 2012. In order to encourage you to keep it up, I wanted to spotlight a healthy drink that can always be found in my refrigerator (unless I am in dire need of a trip to the grocery store that is).

DISCLAIMER: It looks super gross, and believe me, I was skeptical at first, but it's SO good! And so good for you...!


It's called "Green Goodness" by Bolthouse Farms.
I usually drink a small glass with my breakfast every morning, because it has so much good stuff packed into it! See below:

See...told you it was loaded. And you know you totally couldn't go a day without your Echinacea dose...
Oh, and FYI - this is the smaller bottle.

I'm really bad about eating the proper amount of fruits & veggies that you're supposed to eat every day. It's just hard for me to cram that much food into my daily diet. But drinking this knocks out a good chunk of my daily dose of fruits & veggies. 

Seriously, don't let the green scare you away - if you didn't know each bottle was loaded with veggies and other goodies, you'd think you were drinking fruit juice. I mean it's no cookie dough milkshake...but for what it is, it's delicious!

I buy mine at Publix (my local grocer) in the fresh fruit section. There are two sizes offered - a small and a large. The small usually lasts me about two small glasses, and the large usually lasts me right under a week (if I'm drinking it every morning). I'm always super tempted to buy the "better" looking flavors, like mango, but those don't have fruits AND veggies like "Green Goodness" does!

So, get to the store and buy yourself a bottle (or 2), because I refuse to let any of you give up on your healthy resolutions ;)

On Thursday, I'm planning on posting a recipe for a homemade version of this drink. Well it's more of a smoothie-type drink. I like it even more than I like this!

  1. I love their 100% Carrot Juice. It was a little weird at first, drinking something that looked like it should be sweet, but I cannot get enough! :) The Green Goodness is pretty good, too, but the carrot is my fave!

  2. You're right, it does kinda look disgusting. However, I'm also really bad about not getting enough fruits and veggies. You've definitely got me curious to try some out. I'll grab some next time I'm at Publix.

      Easy way to pack in a lot of good stuff without having to eat plates & plates of fruits and veggies lol.

      xo!

  5. Yum! I don't think that looks gross at all! I think it looks amazing! How can something with that insane amount of fruit in it possibly be bad!?

  9. I've seen these before but have always been hesitant because you are right, they look gross. Maybe I'll pick one up the next time I'm at the store. Glad you showed this today!

  10. I must say it does not look good at all. But I cant believe how many vitamins are in that thing! I could probably drink a small glass and that was it a day.

  11. I thought the same thing when I first tried it, looks gross but it does taste good.

  12. My Mom drinks this all the time. I have yet to try it, the frog green color is kinda scary! lol I am pretty good during the week M-F eating my fruits and veggies. The weekends I just have one serving, this maybe the answer for Sat and Sun?

  27. So Matt and I took a trip to Sams Club tonight to get groceries and I remember your post over this and you'd be so proud because I bought 2 of them (they came in a pack). We just tried them and are really impressed...plus we feel healthy drinking them!! I asked Matt if I started making ones similar to this drink (or like the green drink you made) would he start drinking them?! He said yes :) Look at you inspiring little ol' us! ;) Thanks girl!!
