When I began the cleanse on January 3rd, I set out to win that package. I NEED that Vega and coconut water big-time, since I plan to continue the post-workout coconut water and smoothies after my cleanse is over. And Vega is expensive! So is coconut water! I shared the Thrive videos daily (sometimes multiple times each day) to ensure that I'd win. And I did! I can't wait until the stuff comes in. I'm sure I'll post about it again then.
By the way, you can still win this package if you sign up for the free Thrive Forward plan and share the videos often. The daily drawings run through the end of February.
Until then, let's look at what I ate today - the halfway point. The morning started with another Mango Coconut Energy Bar, followed by a 45-minute run (15 minutes warming up on the treadmill and 30 outside in the cold). Then I had some coconut water, followed soon after by this Apple Cinnamon Vega Smoothie:
I really think I'm in love with Vega. All the smoothies I've been making with it have stayed with me for hours. When I've tried to have breakfast smoothies in the past (without Vega), I'm hungry an hour after drinking it. But Vega keeps me full, and it makes for a thick and creamy smoothie.
This one had a whole organic apple, two tablespoons of almond butter, almond-coconut milk, Vega One Natural, and cinnamon. I found the recipe on the Thrive Forward website. Loved the combo of apples and almond butter.
My morning snack was a handful of Nativas Naturals Trail Mix (a mixture of cacao nibs, cashews, goji berries, goldenberries, and mulberries), but I forgot to take a picture.
Lunch was a Mexican Salad Bowl from Thrive Foods:
It's a simple salad with romaine, black beans, fresh corn, grated carrots, cubed jicama, and green onion. The recipe doesn't include a dressing, so I used some leftover Tomato-Basil Dressing from Thrive.
My afternoon snack was more Rhythm Superfoods Texas BBQ Kale Chips and a banana. And dinner was a leftover Temple Rice Bowl (wild rice, bok choy, hummus, sprouts, onions, and hemp seeds). Oh, and I had a square of Vega Maca Chocolate for dessert.
