** 11/28/09 CONTEST CLOSED, WINNER (JUDY L.) HAS BEEN CONTACTED **
I’ve been sitting on this post for…oh…2 months? oops. Sorry. Tropical Traditions sent me some of their Antioxidant Omega 3 Greens to try & review for you, uh…a few months ago. So: I’ve been using it almost daily all this time and I’ll just say it: I love it! I’ve tried some other brands of “mix with water & drink” greens powder & this by FAR tastes MUCH better. Of course being a bit of a ‘locavore’, i also have dehydrated and blended into powder greens bought from a local farm this summer. But….that is for sneaking into pasta and pizza and soups and meatloaf and…..ect. There are days (more than I’d like to admit) where our veggie consumption is minimal and thus the ‘cheat’ of a powdered greens drink. Not to mention that this also contains some digestive enzymes and probiotics to aid in the digestion of all this good stuff (and flax…and…and…lots of stuff). Here’s the thing. With the Tropical traditions brand I have no problem drinking a glass of it mixed with water. Any other brand it takes some effort to do so. If you mix it with juice, well…..it might as well be dessert! My favorite? I mix it in plain yogurt, add a little stevia extract, ground nuts & deem it breakfast. Yum.
What I’m saying is, if you need some help boosting your greens intake (esp in the winter when greens aren’t so readily available from the garden): I HIGHLY recommend the Tropical Traditions Antioxicant Omega 3 Greens. It’s a brand I trust and the taste & texture is bar-none. Disclaimer: Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product…my opinion is my own. If it helps clarify, I intend to buy more when the current canister runs out.
Even better: You can win some! They have generously offered to provide one lucky winner with a container of greens shipped directly from Tropical Traditions. To enter simply head over to Tropical Traditions, sign up for their sales newsletter and let me know in the comments. If you’re already signed up for it, just let me know in the comments. Winner will be randomly selected out of some sort of container old-school slip of paper style on Saturday, Nov. 28 (when you’re feeling all fat & full of turkey, in need of some greens) and contacted via email. If there is no response in 48hrs I will select a new winner.
Good Luck and hey, speaking of the coconut oil company, have you seen their coconut recipes? I’ve found quite a few gems on that page.
