She LOVES being my model..

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.

It’s hot out.  I know, NEWSFLASH OF THE CENTURY, duh, right?  But it’s hot out.  Which means it kicks off my NCS like nobody’s business when I go out to jog and it’s hot and I dehydrate.  So while I normally have a regular protein shake before my jog and one of these maybe after?  I decided to mix it up one evening while slowly putting off my run and have this before braving the heat.  No worries, I still took my 24oz of water with me, but at least I was armed beforehand with some electrolytes as well.

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.

So lucky for you, I’m avoiding food right now due to the continual knife-in-gut syndrome I keep having.  So that means more protein-shake reviews.  Yay!  or.  Something.  We’ll go with it.

Did a jog cause that gets my mind off my gut and head and hands and when I came back in I pulled this baby out of the fridge.  And, well, took a picture of it cause that’s the way I do things now.  It’s a sickness I tell you.  And it’s all Beth’s fault.

Okay.  So today is another knife-in-the-gut day.  After hour 6 I decided to go for a jog to hope the pain of a good side stitch would help stop the pain elsewhere.  And it worked for awhile.  So anyway.

I come in from a particularly hard jog and decide to try out one of these new RTD protein shakes I have from Mix1.
