NOW FOR THIS WEEKS GIVE -AWAY
You are going to love this - it's from a company called Vitacost.First of all this company was more then generous. However, this review like all the other reviews is my own opinion and not that of any other and I was not paid to do it. I do think though, I knew like the others - that I would love them.
I've have honestly loved everything I've reviewed so far. I guess if I don't like a product I wouldn't do a review.
I received a product called CALM - Scottish Oatmeal - Garbanzo Bean Flour - Kind Chocolate and Spice and Chocolate..
I put the old hubs on the CALM right away. It produces stress relief. I tell you from the very first drink he made -a raspberry lemon and you can get other forms - he loved it right away and has taken it consistently. Thank goodness in all this garage sale stress! It is a form of magnesium. The product Calm balances your calcium levels and restores healthy magnesium levels in your body. My husband is sleeping better than he has in a long , long time.
Now the Scottish Oatmeal - it is a very oatmeal I think. It is not big nuggets like Steel Cut oatmeal - and it;s better than regular oatmeal because well it's extremely fibrous...It is a little pasty just like you would want to clean the fat out of the body (cholesterol) - that is my opinion. I got to the doctor in July and can't wait to see my blood work.
Now the Kind bars - I have always eaten them because as a diabetic - they are the perfect snack food. It's a natural way to reduce sugar with only 5g. It's nutritionally rich. low glycemic, delicious ingredients - with 7 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein. You have your protein there to go with the sugar grams and fiber. I asked for the flavor Dark Chocolate Chili Almond. And let me tell you it was delicious.........................................not too spicy at all. Just a little mild kick at the end. My hubs doesn't like chocolate - but he ate the whole bar! This is the best tasting bar I have ever had.
The other product Garbanzo Bean Powder. I have not used this yet - but I have a recipe to use it and i will make it this week and give you the recipe next week. Why not use flour - why use bean powder - where there is the benefit for diabetics - it is GF - etc.
And before I tried all these I had bought Sugar Free Whey Protein - they have it in chocolate and vanilla- on my own. Great for diabetics!
I hope they ask me to do another review! lol
The winner has to be a friend of mine on GFC and they must go to their site and tell me what they would get with their $25.00 gift certificate from Vitacost. http://www.vitacost.com/
