Slingshot Shakes REVIEW

In today’s fast-paced world, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that drinkable yogurt is one of the fasted growing breakfast foods around. In just the past year this category of breakfast food has grown at a rate of a 20% increase. Cereal still remains the number one breakfast food (no surprise there). So just why then are these drinkable yogurts on the rise? They are an excellent source of protein and nutrients to kickstart your day.

 

Slingshot Shake Nutrition

Protein

This small, on-the-go bottle of Slingshot Shake packs in a great big amount of protein to start your day. In one Slingshot Shake, you will find a whopping 18 grams of protein.

Probiotics

This handy breakfast shake from Slingshot also contains a healthy dose of gut-boosting probiotics. A Slingshot Shake contains 15 billion CFUs of probiotics. Your gut is going to thank you for all of these probiotics. You may hear quite a bit of talk about probiotics nowadays. Probiotics are a hot topic and for good reason. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that help give your digestive system some balance between the good bacteria and bad bacteria in your gut.

Lactobacillus is the probiotic that you might hear about most frequently. This good bacteria is found in your yogurt and what you might call friendly bacteria. You can read more about lactobacillus HERE.

Fiber

Slingshot Shake also gives your healthy diet a serving of fiber, coming in at 3 grams of fiber. Fiber is essential to a well-balanced diet and helps keep things running smoothly if you know what I mean! There are many health benefits of fiber including relieving constipation, maintaining bowel health, lowering cholesterol levels, control blood sugar levels, helping to maintain a healthy weight, and can actually help you live a longer life!

The recommended daily intake of fiber for men and women vary. It is recommended that men get 38 grams of fiber, and women need around 28 grams of fiber.

All natural ingredients in Slingshot Shakes

I checked out the nutrition label on my Slingshot Shake and was pleasantly surprised to see that these drinkable yogurt protein shakes have only all natural ingredients with nothing strange or weird lurking inside. Ingredients: (Drink) Lowfat milk, milk protein concentrate, water, organic cane sugar, honey, natural flavors, vanilla beans, lemon juice concentrate, yogurt cultures; (Shot) Toasted oats, chia seeds, almond bits, honey, sunflower oil I love when I look at the label on my food and I can pronounce all of the words that are in the list of ingredients.

Flavors of Slingshot Shakes

There are six wonderful flavors of Slingshot shakes breakfast shakes available. Each comes with its own little granola pouch. These little pouches contain the following ingredients: rolled oats, chia seeds, and toasted almond bits.

How can Slingshot Shakes improve?

I am going to have to say that the biggest drawback to the Slingshot Shake is the amount of added sugar that I found on the label. For example, the vanilla shake 35 grams of total sugar with 23 added grams of sugar factored into that. For a health-conscious person, those 35 grams of sugar are just going to be way too much. For men, the recommended daily amount of sugar per day is 37.5 grams of sugar and for women, the recommended daily amount of sugar is 25 grams. You can find out more info about that HERE. It is super crazy hard to only take in 25 grams of sugar these days if you are a woman like me. This shake only puts me way over the recommended amount by the American Heart Association. So while I do enjoy these shakes, they are not part of my everyday morning routine.

What is next for Slingshot Shakes

It appears to be that Slingshot Shakes will be soon releasing a line of drinkable yogurt shakes for your little ones. The Slingshot Shorties, however, do not come up with the crunchy shot of granola for the shake. Slingshot Shakes decided that it is a textural issue with young children. The shakes for your little ones will still be full of nutrients and gut boosting probiotics, but no shot.

Final Thoughts

Slingshot Shakes are a simple and easy solution for when you need a quick breakfast. Just grab and go! The crunchy granola shot was a nice welcomed addition. The granola shot gives this yogurt shake a delightful texture. My daugher, who is 9, also enjoyed drinking the Slingshot Shake. I was happy to share with her and it is a breakfast that I feel good about serving.

Good Day Chocolate Supplements For Kids REVIEW – Go Back To School In Good Health

I recently had the opportunity to try the line of supplements for adults by Good Day Chocolate. You can read more about that HERE. I was so impressed with the quality and effectiveness of these Good Day Chocolate adult supplements for myself so I figured I should also have my daughter, Chloe, give the children’s line a whirl! Today I am going to share my Good Day Chocolate Supplements For Kids Review. Chloe sure was excited and pumped to give these a try!I know she was a little jealous when I had my supply for myself. The supplements for children are available in four different varieties: Multivitamin, Calm, Probiotic, and Sleep. You can also grab yourself a variety pack for children if you want to try them all.

Standard disclosure: I received these products free of charge for a review in exchange. All opinions stated here are my own.

The great thing about these is that your child will get excited to take their vitamin. Who doesn’t love chocolate?! They are also naturally colored from fruits and vegetables, so no artificial colors here. Also, the chocolate is ethically sourced fair-trade chocolate. One piece of chocolate has 2g of sugar and each piece has approximately 15 calories.


Multivitamin:

The Good Day Chocolate For Kids Multivitamin provides a daily dose of all the important vitamins in one dose. Two pieces of Good Day Chocolate is considered one dose.

My daughter, Chloe, really looked forward to taking her daily vitamin when I told her that all her vitamins could be found in just two pieces of chocolate. That got her excited and I didn’t hear a single sigh about taking the vitamin. Chewable children’s vitamins often have a chalky taste and leave a bad aftertaste in your mouth. This is not the case with Good Day Chocolate.

All of the important vitamins for your kiddos are found in the multivitamin including: A, B6, B12, C, D, E. You can get more information on other vitamins available in the photo of the label below.

Good Day Chocolate Calm:

Hyper child? No problem with a dose of Good Day Chocolate For Kids Calm. This supplement combines the power of l-theanine and chamomile flower to help put your mind at ease. The dosage for Calm is two chocolates. I often take a couple of these myself when I need to take my anxiety down a notch. These work efficiently and quickly.

Sacred Springs Kombucha REVIEW – Take A Sip! Your Gut Will Thank You

Today I would like to introduce you to a line of kombucha that was birthed in my home state of Michigan. This kombucha is brought to you by Sacred Springs. I actually ordered all five flavors from Shipt but one flavor was out of stock… boo! I will be honest here, I am a huge sucker for labeling and packaging. If a label draws me in enough I will purchase that product and bring it home with me. I have had my eye on this kombucha for awhile, particularly the Root Of Life bottle with the bearded man. Maybe his eyes mesmerized me? Whatever it was, it worked!

First things first, what is kombucha and why you should try it

Chances are you have heard about kombucha by now. It seems to be all the rage these days in the world of healthy living. Kombucha is a fermented tea (with sugar) that is full of good bacteria for your gut and probiotics. This can all strengthen your immune system, give you energy and focus, and also give you a boost in overall health.

When I first tried kombucha I will always remember it. I had no idea what it was when I bought it. It was GT’S Raspberry Chia and I bought it at Whole Foods. I was sitting out on the patio with my daughter and we gave it a whirl. At first, I was totally turned off by the vinegar-like taste. I just could not drink it. I do believe that like many things in life, kombucha is an acquired taste. I believe that once you get through your first couple of bottles and begin to experience all of the wonderful health benefits, you will be craving a bottle daily. That’s where I’m at right now!

Kalmbucha

The first flavor that I tried out was the one with holy basil. This one is called Kalmbucha. This one was very light tasting and easy to drink for me. There are a lot of kombucha haters out there (I know because I used to be one) and I feel that anyone could enjoy this particular flavor. Holy basil is known to bring balance to your life and even you out. It truly did have a calming effect that swept over me.

Flower of Life

The second kombucha that I went for was the Flower Of Life. This bottle has a beautiful red hue to it, making it somewhat irresistible to me. This drink has a beautiful mix of the following flavors: jasmine flowers, hibiscus, rose hips, elderflowers and elderberries. This one can be best described as a little sweet and a little sour. So if you are into sweet & sour this one might be your jam! I really enjoyed this flavor and I felt great after drinking it.

Root of Life

The third one that I consumed was called Root of Life and this is the one with the label that I was head over heels in love with. This one is infused with a heavy taste of beets and also a blend of ginger and turmeric. When they created this flavor it was akin to winning the lottery. The combination of flavors is just BAM!! If you love beets as much as I do you will really enjoy drinking this one. This one had a ton of fizz to it too, which I love! That’s when I know I have a potent kombucha.

Tzintzer Trifecta

This kombucha is all about the ginger. Ginger is one of those elements that definitely has a zing to it. Ginger is known to have anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants, can even out blood sugar, promote weight loss, and is also hydrating. I am a big fan of ginger so this flavor won me over.

If you are in Michigan or Ohio you are in luck because that is where Sacred Springs can be found. Hopefully, in the future, this can be found nationwide because I feel that everyone should get on board with this brand.

My Good Day Chocolate Review

 

About Good Day Chocolate Supplement

Good Day Chocolate only uses Fair-Trade certified chocolate in their supplements. It is also vegan-friendly and does not contain any dairy. Their products are not organic but they do promise that they only source premium, Non-GMO ingredients for their products. The coloring on the candy shells is also nothing to worry about because they only use natural coloring to dye the shell (example: green is spirulina). If you are wondering about calories, the candies are about 60-70 calories per 4 piece serving which is not too shabby.

Good Day Chocolate Energy Supplement

I often feel sluggish in the day and need some kind of a pick-me-up to kick my butt in gear. The first Good Day Chocolate supplement that I decided to try was the energy pack. My first impression when I took my first taste was, “WOWZA! These are fantastic!” It was around 5pm and I am pretty bold when it comes to caffeine so I decided to try out the entire pack. The box claims that 8 of these candies will have me “jumping Jupiter”. They certainly did perk me up! I do not recommend eating the whole box if you are sensitive to caffeine. Please just take it nice and slow! There are 20mg of caffeine per piece. For reference, 1 cup of coffee contains approximately 95 mg of caffeine.

I often go to bed early so I can be an early riser and get my fitness in for the day. I wanted to stay up late, though, to watch Doctor Pimple Popper. Good Day Chocolate did not let me down. The show was over at 11 pm and I made it through the entire show without any jitters. I just felt good and I felt alive. I also had no problems whatsoever falling asleep. It was just good, clean fuel for my body.

Good Day Chocolate Calm Stress & Anxiety Relief Supplement

The Good Day Chocolate Calm pack is great for those that experience anxiety. The main ingredient in this chocolate is l-theanine. This chocolate has a nice, calming effect. Two chocolates will have the “chill pill” effect, 4 will have you “feeling fine”, 6 is “hello mellow”, and 8 will have you “maxin & relaxin”. The calm pack is also great for winding down in the evening.

Good Day Chocolate Turmeric Supplement

The next Good Day Chocolate supplement that I tried out was the turmeric pack. Each box has 800mg of turmeric. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, is full of antioxidants, and it is also known to boost brain function. So this would be great for post-workout.

Good Day Chocolate Probiotic Supplement

The Good Day Chocolate Probiotic Supplement is great when you need some balance in your gut. Each box contains 8 billion CFUs (colony forming units). I felt pretty regular after taking a small dose of these for a few days.

Good Day Chocolate Vitamin D3 Supplement

Good Day Chocolate Vitamin D3 Supplement is like eating the sunshine! My doctor told me that I was deficient in Vitamin D earlier this year and I am on a 4000 IU dose. Each chocolate contains 1000 IU (international units) of Vitamin D3. So for me, I needed to eat 4 pieces of chocolate instead of my two tablets that I take at night-time. Vitamin D is helpful for mood, bone health (helps calcium absorption), and immunity.

Good Day Chocolate Sleep Supplement

I really enjoyed the Good Day Chocolate Sleep Supplement to help me combat my ongoing issue with insomnia. Each piece contains 1mg melatonin and they suggest taking this supplement 30-60 minutes before bedtime. These worked like a charm for me! Good Day Chocolate suggests starting small with this supplement and slowly work your way up to more if you feel that you need more. For me, a 4mg dose was my sweet spot.
