Treat Yourself Tuesday: Healthy Skoop [and GIVEAWAY]

c3057-treat-yourself-tuesday-badge

I’ve gone to the Fit Expo and the Natural Products Expo and got tons of snack bars and powders. I’ll try the protein powders, but I don’t use anything else like pre-workouts, hydration powders, or even green powders. I try to get my greens from my daily salad.

But if you follow my Instagram, you’ve probably noticed my almost-daily photos of Skoop.

Maddy Moon, one of my fabulous suitemates at the Blend Retreat, works for Skoop, a superfoods company.

She handed out 5-day challenges of the A-Game to Blend attendees.

I probably wouldn’t have tried it, but it was fancily designed and I love good design and Maddy is lovable and convincing. Maddy’s story resonates with me. Sure, I wasn’t a body builder, but I overtrained and underate too and well, that backfired terribly. I was left with some health problems despite being healthy. Most of those have gone away over the last few years except my digestion.

I came back from Blend with knots in my stomach from eating a variety of delicious food and drinking way too much coffee. *Travel also tends to hurt my stomach.

Too much coffee at Blend!

Back home, I immediately tried the 5-day challenge and just as quickly, my stomach problems were gone. No uncomfort and bloating! In addition to the 41 organic non-GMO ingredients (superfoods), A-Game has probiotics! The probiotics helped me digest the goodness from my daily salad and it has additional fiber for my heart, inflammation, and metabolic health (a definite plus!).

Plus, I welcome any excuse to add chocolate to my diet – they use real cocoa in their ChocoFresh! Don’t worry, if you don’t like chocolate, they have SweetGreens, which is delicious too.

Thanks Maddy for the package and sweet personal note – I miss you too!

I’m currently drinking the A-Game every morning in place of my morning coffee. It’s easier and faster than making coffee and I don’t feel the caffeine crash. Yes, my plain black coffee has very few calories but the A-Game’s 50 calories are totally worth it!
