I cannot sleep! And for a change it is due to excitement! How’s that? Amy is H-A-P-P-Y and E-X-C-I-T-E-D! My first day of vacation was amazing. I tried sleeping but no. That was not happening. What was happening instead was that a lot of people I have spoken to about Juice Plus have decided they are ready to go forward with me! They are ready to make changes in their lives and I am so thrilled for all of us!

Making life changes, especially for your health, isn’t easy. There are too many easy ways out. But having a support group, which I am going to help give to these people will not only help us all with having wonderful information, but it will help us feel accountable! We don’t have to do anything! We’re adults! But if we want to discuss our trials and tribulations with others in the same boat, I think that will give the help that is really beneficial to many.

I truly feel like today was a blessing from God. Had I worked my regular 8 hour job, I couldn’t have spoken to everyone I spoke with today. I had six conversations that were lengthy and productive. It took all day and night. I also had several conversations via Facebook chat and set appointments for Saturday!

What an amazing day!

The next best things to fruits and vegetables.

More Good News About Juice Plus

2011JPPoster_Final_52311

I was talking to my “trainer” today and found something FABULOUS out! Juice Plus is free for kids age 4-23! What?! Yes, FREE! Here is something important for anyone with children, who is a grandparent, aunt, uncle: If an adult purchases the Fruit & Vegetable Juice Plus Blend (it has to be the capsules or gummies), you can get your child’s Juice Plus for FREE! You would need to fill out a survey through the Children’s Health Study (eligibility is age 4-23 if in college). The order would have to be placed by ME in order for you to receive this! But wouldn’t it be nice to get your kid healthy for FREE?! Because let’s face it, how many fruits and veggies are your kids eating daily?

Also, how about free gifts for the adults? Who doesn’t want something free? If you place an order and are even THINK you might want additional product later, make sure that you let me know before placing your order or let me place the order for you so that you get a FREE GIFT!

Juice Plus Mocha Frappuccino

Posted on

mocha frappuccino

6-8 oz soy milk (Depends on the calorie count I want. I can add water to get more liquid if I use less milk.)

2 Tbsp. Vanilla Juice Plus shake mix

2 packets Truvia

1 Tbsp. Folgers instant coffee

2 chocolate creamers (if not available individually, use about 1 1/2 Tbsp. chocolate creamer)

small handful of ice

Put the soy milk in blender first and then add the shake mix. Whir that around for a few seconds to get blended well. Anytime you use a powdered substance, it is best to do it this way so that it doesn’t taste gritty. If you see that your drink mix is thicker than you want, add more liquid. If it is thinner than you want, add a tad more shake mix. Remember, though, you’re going to add ice, which makes it slushy.

Add the Truvia, coffee, creamer and ice. Whir again until the drink is mixed to the consistency you wish.

Enjoy!

I believe the calories on this totals around 230 and if fills me for hours. You can use a dab of real sugar if you want. No biggie. I wouldn’t use aspartame. It just isn’t the right flavor.

Note: You can use whatever milk you like. I choose soy just because it is affordable and easier for me to find. This is your choice! You can also add more chocolate if you need. That is up to your tastes!

 

Strawberry Juice Plus Smoothie

strawberry smoothie

6-8 oz soy milk (Depends on the calorie count I want. I can add water to get more liquid if I use less milk.)

2 Tbsp. Vanilla Juice Plus shake mix

2 packets Truvia

1 handful frozen strawberries, whole (make sure they are whole and not in juice)

 

Put the soy milk in blender first and then add the shake mix. Whir that around for a few seconds to get blended well. Anytime you use a powdered substance, it is best to do it this way so that it doesn’t taste gritty. If you see that your drink mix is thicker than you want, add more liquid. If it is thinner than you want, remember you are about to add strawberries, which will thicken it.

Add the Truvia and strawberries. Whir again until the drink is mixed to the consistency you wish.

Enjoy!

How I Have Lost Weight Recently

Juice Plus

Over the last year I have trying different things to lose weight. Playing with what would work best for my erratic schedule. I have felt very frustrated because my work schedule fluctuates to the point of me being stuck there an extra 4 hours sometimes without being able to go get food. I try to keep extra food there, but I can’t stock 2 fridges. I was extremely frustrated because there wasn’t anything, it seemed, that was easy and affordable. But there was! And I finally found it! Juice Plus!

Juice Plus is a way to supplement the fruits and veggies I was missing out on because of my crazy schedule. It doesn’t replace them. But it supplements them. I feel so much better. I have blogged about being tired, but that is mainly when I have worked 14-16 hours. Anyone would be tired after that, especially in a high-stress environment. I work in crisis situations daily. It tires you when you work those long stretches. I am finding that I am less and less tired.

I have been using the shakes from Juice Plus and they are absolutely amazing. They are filling, delicious and super EASY! I love them. I can keep my stuff at work and make them when needed. I have a single-serving blender at work. I bring in my Juice Plus shake powder, a bag of frozen strawberries, a box of Truvia in packets, instant Folgers coffee and soy milk. I use the vanilla powder so I can have a wider variety of flavors. Some days I want a mocha frappuccino and some days I want a strawberry smoothie. I will post my recipes in separate posts.

These shakes are so good! I don’t feel like I am being deprived of anything. I actually just feel like I am having a treat. I used to love to go through the drive-thru and get these same kinds of drinks. I was spending a lot more on these drinks and I was also getting a lot more calories! Wasted, empty calories. The calories I get now are beneficial and help my body. It is FUEL for my body and not just junk. It isn’t just a drink either; it is filling!

I don’t just drink shakes. I am eating very healthy, too. I am managing my calorie intake by using free apps on my phone. I can watch my calories and keep track. This is crucial. So often we don’t watch the calorie intake. We just assume that because we feel like we are starving that we must be losing weight. You don’t have to starve to lose weight. I am not starving!!!!!! I am eating tons of blueberries! (I have found a new addiction, by the way!) I am not sure how the blueberries are assisting, but they are a super food. I am eating delicious salads. In fact, I have posted my favorite salad recipe on the blog. I even eat my favorite chicken sandwich from Wendy’s and enjoy it! And yes, I am losing weight eating this way.

The shakes have been crucial, though. I do them 2 times a day and then I can eat the rest of my calories in whatever healthy foods I want. I just watch my calories, carb and fat intake. I try to not eat too many carbs just because, personally, I am a carb junkie and they are triggers for me. I sometimes don’t know when to stop and less of that is better. I also limit fat just because I can sometimes overdo it without realizing it. It’s easy to do. You do need fat, though. Your body is in need of a good balance.

The shakes don’t have to be used as meal replacements, though. They can be used before or after a workout. They can be used as a snack. They can be used for those people who stay hungry all day and this will help with the constant grazing. They really do fill me up. (I say this as an obese woman who would sometimes not feel full after eating just about everything!)

If you have any questions, please ask. You can also visit the website. I was so grateful to finally find something that was nutritious and beneficial to me, as well as affordable. I remember the day in the doctor’s office when they said I had lost 20 lbs. I sat there and cried. Finally some tears of joy! Juice Plus is saving my life.
