THEY'RE HERE & GIVEAWAY!! New Complete Nutrition Bars

Yay! Something new for me to wear!

This morning I started out my Transform30 day with the Dynamic Duo- Green Smoothies pre-workout, and Juice Plus+ Complete in almond milk for my recovery drink. WHEW! But Burn Boot Camp IS getting easier! It's working! I'm getting my measurements done next week to see how I'm doing.  I can't wait! 

After my workout, I took my son to preschool and LM & I ran down to have some work done on our van. They told me it would take an hour. TWO hours later, I was *a little* concerned I would be late to pick my son up! I was hoping I'd be able to squeeze in some sales calls on my excursion, and drop off flyers at a few chiropractor offices for my summer series of classes. So much for that. All in God's timing. 

But at least when we got home I picked our FIRST STRAWBERRY of the season! Yay! 

I washed it, lovingly handed it to my oh-so-excited son...and he dropped it right in front of the dog. Ahem. So we enjoyed the SECOND strawberry of the season. ;)

I did some work after lunch: 

And decided..."Hmm. I'm tired. And if I'm going to work out so hard, and get skinny healthy, I may as well get my tan Vitamin D levels on, to help my hormone levels & boost my killer good looks mood even more!" Ha.

(did I just laugh at my own joke?)

My son had other ideas. Yes, he's shooting HIMSELF with his water gun. He is so funny! I still was able to lie down, and I had some help staying cooled off in the heat. I love him. 

I stayed out for just half an hour. Then back to work, and dinner! We're having gluten free black bean tostadas. Mine will have avocado in lieu of cheese- YUM! 

Other Good Things! 

Some goodies came in the mail for me- and for you! Juice Plus+ just came out with a NEW Complete product (whole protein, whole foods based products): SNACK BARS! Perfect for the sporty types, busy types and hungry types, alike :). Do you see the picture on the left? That's right! Gluten free, vegan and NON-GMO. Very important.

I even emailed the company to ensure these products are truly gluten free & Celiac disease safe. Here was the response:

Hello Megan,

Thank you for your email!

All Juice Plus+ products are regularly tested using Tepnel ELISA methodology (AOAC
method 991.19) for the presence of gluten, and they meet the requirements proposed by
FDA for gluten-free foods; no wheat, barley or rye, and less than 20 parts per
million gluten.

Thank you,

Juice Plus+® Customer Care

We tried them both. First, the Whole Grain + Cranberry:

Then, the Apple & Raisin:

My son & I LOVED the Apple + Raisin, and Mr Incredible preferred the Wholesome Grain & Cranberry. My daughter didn't seem to care, as long as she had some stuffed in her face!
