BLOG POST #4 #LazyChefLayeredLady Tip

Here is the thing I’m really impatient when it comes to all things food. I really hate waiting. 😭 This is particularly true after I finish a tough workout. What am I even typing right now->I’M LIKE THIS WITH EVERYTHING. Every time I purchase items from Amazon I hope they appear in a matter of minutes.

“Where is it?!!!”

So when it comes to eating a meal or snack I’m the type of person that wants items in my kitchen that make eating easy and healthy. This week I stumbled across a product in Target that matched this criteria. I say stumbled because I just went in for 2 things. 😭 

 You know how it goes, you go to Target to buy 2 things and of course you ended up with 20!

“I only need 2 things!”

I came across THRIVE pre-made smoothie mix.

“[THRIVE] was founded in the Los Angeles home of entrepreneur Oliver Bogner. At 24 years old, Oliver was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer. Oliver wanted a healthy option that would give him the boost he needed to fuel his on-the-go lifestyle, even while receiving treatment. He found the solution in the home-made fruit smoothies he made in his kitchen. Oliver has been cancer free for one full year, and now he wants to empower others to live their healthiest lives.”

  1. NO ADDED SUGAR!
  2. 50 cals for 1/2 the container (8 oz)
  3. 100 cals for the whole container (16 oz)
  4. 1/2 container less than 13g of carbs
  5. Whole container less than 26g of carbs! 

The smoothie blend options: Glow, Energy, Green, Defend and Rise!

(I don’t make any commission if you click this link) 

Here comes the part that might make you cringe -> The price = $5 dollars. 

Let me justify this! 

  1. Here is the thing for $5 dollars it comes with a variety of REAL fruits and REAL veggies-> so for me it is worth it. I know I could easily spend more than that at Starbucks or Jamba. 
  2. The variety allows me to choose what smoothie I’m in the mood for. 
  3. If I struggle to reach my protein goal, I make 1-2 of these smoothies a day that include my protein of choice. (😋)
  4. They keep me super full! (👋BYE CRAVINGS) 
  5. If I blend with ice it turns out like a sorbet! (😀HEALTHY DESSERT)

This week I’ve been obsessing my latest smoothie creation! Using my Nutribullet I mixed the THRIVE Green Smoothie contents with my ISOPURE Citrus Lemonade protein powder .

PSSST->  The ISOPURE Lemonade Protein Powder has 20 grams of protein per scoop! So if I have 2 scoops a day (40 grams) that covers a third of my protein intake! 

Now I know you are like that doesn’t sound tasty. Let me tell you it made me feel like I was sitting in a beach chair in the Bahamas submerging my toes in the sand. It turned out to be a great tropical smoothie! 

“I need 120 grams of protein a day! Smoothies help me reach my goal!”

  1. I have not tried Thrive and this looks similar to the Harvest cup smoothies, I’m going to have to go to Target and find some. I love healthier choices

  2. So true about Target!!! I never understand why I ended up with so many items. I’m curious to try Thrive. I typically make my own protein shakes, but i have to prep them early enough in advance.

  3. oooo never knew you made blogs about food and protein I NEED to start eating right so this is very interesting !
