The holiday craziness starting now usually means stressing, rushing, and not always eating well. So we've tapped our friends at Genuine Health for some nutrition boosters to help fuel your season: We're giving away three varieties of greens+ supplements worth a total of $125.97 CAD! Below is inspiration for how to use them, as well as the entry form to enter to win.
I'm a longtime greens+ fan, but I haven't tried these recipes yet. Right now I'm all about greens+ Extra Energy in Orange in a smoothie with almond milk, pineapple, peaches, a third of a banana and sometimes a shot of protein powder (that turns it into breakfast). The Greens+ Green Goodness Smoothie Bowl looks delish; might have to add it to my repertoire. The Blueberry Bites look like tasty snacks, and the Hello Sunshine smoothie will be a welcome bright spot in the dead of approaching winter. #noscurvyhere

In an unexpected twist, my Nutribullet blender died yesterday. The motor got really hot and gave out, possibly because I sometimes run it too long. Oops. But I bought a Nutribullet Pro-900 to replace it, and it's already arrived thanks to Amazon Prime! (I wish I could have waited until Black Friday sales to buy my new blender, but I need it too much to delay.)

Except for the Hello Sunshine Smoothie, the recipes are not exact to the formulas we're giving away, hence the word "inspiration." Most people I know just substitute whatever they want and make their own recipes up! (That doesn't come naturally to me, but I'm playing a bit with my own smoothie recipes at least. *grin*)
Each tub retails for $41.99; the total value is about $125 CAD (sorry, Quebec *sad face*). You can get more info on Genuine Health greens+ and its benefits at genuinehealth.com.
This giveaway is open to residents of Canada who have already celebrated their 18th birthday at least ONCE. We're accepting entries until Friday November 11th at midnight; good luck, lovelies! xoxo
