Amazing energy from an AMAZING product!

I hope everyone's having a great week so far!

Last week, I received an e-mail from Teri Jo at Amazing Grass offering to send me samples of their products for me to try and review on my blog. I received the shipment yesterday and got super excited when I opened it to reveal this:

Of course, I had to immediately try one, as I've seen them all around the blog world, but never gotten to taste them! It was perfect timing as I was due to go play racquetball with a friend and I was hoping for an energy burst! I mean, the list of ingredients is incredible! So many antioxidant-rich greens and fruits and vegetables!

I tried an Original Blend Amazing Meal and mixed it with 10 ounces of water in the shaker that she also provided for me.

Enjoyed with a Chobani yogurt with Uncle Sam cereal.

And the result? AMAZING!

I love the taste and the fact that it mixes well with water, so there are no chunks of powder left in it. And the thing I loved the very most?! Was how much energy I had all night while playing racquetball! In fact, my friend and I ended up sharing the court with extremely advanced players (we aren't really to that level!) and we played an intense game for two hours and this meal provided me A LOT of energy to use up while playing! Never mind that I am SOOO sore today! Or the gigantic blood blister that I got from the intense game. (Eww, I know!)

Naturally, I couldn't wait to try another one, so this morning, after getting a much needed 9 1/2 hours of sleep, I tried this:

This was absolutely delicious! It tasted like chocolate milk, and being the chocoholic that I am, of course I loved it! :)

I will definitely be taking one of bars along for a snack while I'm teaching violin all night to little kids and I'm super excited about trying those, too!

Also, check back to my blog for a giveaway coming up soon. I'll give you one hint: it's AMAZING! :)

So in other food news, I made a delicious omelet for breakfast, consisting of:

-1 egg, 1 eggwhite
-sauteed kale and red onion
-sliced avocado
-Monterey Jack cheese
-WF salsa

The end result was spectacular!

With coffee:

It's OK, you can be jealous! ;-)

I must have really been on a food roll today because I also made a PHENOMENAL sandwich:

-Nature's Pride 12 Grain bread (this is exceptionally delicious bread!)
-tuna w. light Italian dressing
-Monterey Jack cheese melted on the bread right after toasting it...like this:
-1 gigantic leaf of sauteed kale with EVOO:
Layer it up:
And the end result was definitely something I need to make again, soon! (Read: tomorrow most likely!)

Here's a deliciously ripe pear that I snacked on yesterday:
