something fiber-y

philosophy:

It seems our days have become increasingly packed with events as we juggle family, work, and fitness leaving less time to focus on eating right throughout the day.

There are many nutritional products claiming to deliver amazing benefits but in reality fall short on balanced nutrition. With this in mind, we started mix1 with the following mission: to create the highest quality all-natural products that promote health, wellness and performance through truly functional nutrition.

mix1 products deliver all-natural balanced nutrition with multiple benefits in a convenient way. We use the right balance of ingredients, at efficacious levels, to provide the maximum benefit to your body.

Someone was talking about how great this stuff was, so I looked up the company.  I decided to drop them a line about their product and they sent me a few samples to try.  In no way did they pay me for the review (other than giving me some yummy stuff!) and they did not ask for anything in return.  Well, other than my honest opinion.  I suppose that counts?  And if you’ve been reading me for awhile — honesty is something that I come by fairly easily.

A jog happened tonight, and thus a protein shake is in my future.  I chose this, which isn’t exactly a protein shake, but it’s all good anyway.

Just coming in from a bike ride with the kids, I decide to pull one of these out of the fridge.  Now, this is a bit different than the other mix1 products I’ve reviewed — this is not as much of a protein drink as much as it’s an antioxident / fiber drink.  In fact, it’s got a whole lot less sugar (9 grams versus the 29 grams in the other drinks) and a whole lot less protein (9 grams versus 15 grams) than the others.  So this is not, strictly speaking, a protein supplement.  But given how my stoma doesn’t do veggies and fruits?  It’s not a bad choice for me.  Your mileage may vary, so take this as it is written.
