1) Nutrition – Hot Chocolaty Nutritious Treat

Its no secret that I’m a dessert -a-holic its always very challenging finding healthy options for tasty treats. As soon as it gets cold out my favorite treat is to warm myself up with a hot, chocolatey drink…
I have to admit I never would have though of this healthy alternative to regular sugar packed hot chocolate
I’m a huge fan of the Vega products, and they’ve got a perfect solution thats  as simple as combining these two healthy ingredients.

Hot Chocolaty Nutritious Treat

Ingredients: 2 scoops choc-a-late Vega Shake & Go Smoothie
11/2 cups unsweetened Rice or Almond milk

Directions: Mix up the Shake & Go powder and milk until powder is dissolved. Then warm the mixture in a pot on the stove for a few minutes.

Its a healthy alternative, to a delicious treat. You can even get creative and mix it with the Vanilla Almondilla and I like mine with a little cinnamon on top…Try it!

3) Wellness – Bio-K Formula

During my recent travel to Europe, apart from hours of walking a day, the only exercise I got was the action of lifting my fork to my mouth, and I have to be honest with you, that did a real number on my system.

When I returned, I knew I needed help to get back on track. So I used Bio-K Plus Formula.

Probiotics are (good bacteria) that help intestinal bacteria perform their tasks more efficiently. They take over when your intestinal bacteria have too much work or are weakened or even destroyed by — antibiotics, stress, poor nutrition or any other factors such as “travel to other countries”, and “overindulging” like in my case.

The Bio-K formula, which contains beneficial live bacteria that are found in great number in the intestine, promotes and maintains a healthy balanced digestive system.

You can find it in the refrigerator section of your local healthfood store. In the Original, Fruity, Strawberry, and dairy free flavours.

I’m not going to lie, its not taste, but thats not the point, its an effective way to get you back on track.
