Summertime sadness

I am finally on antibiotics! Let the healing begin. Clarithromycin, which is used to great heavy duty infections (which brings me onto my second topic)- I have a chest infection. This is the second time this year I have had acute bronchitis in a year.. Though it may not sound like a very big deal, it absolutely sucks, and can be incredibly harmful.

On a side note, I dragged my butt out of bed to receive my Vega package this morning!!! Yay! Can’t wait to start feeling better and use all the goodies 😊 The omega oil couldn’t have come in at a better time!!

I am so excited to try Vega’s brand new sugar-free pre workout energizer! They have two flavours: Acai berry, and Lemon lime. I purchased lemon lime, I love citrus! 🍋🍋 Each serving is only five calories, and sweetened with stevia (yay stevia!) It includes 10 plant based performance enhancing ingredients, such as Yerba mate, green tea, and ginseng, that when working together create a balanced energy booster.
I am a bigbig longtime fan of Vega’s Energizing smoothies. My favorite flavor so far has been Vanilla almondilla, but my sister raved about Tropical tango, so I had to purchase it. I also bought a few sample of Bodacious berry to try, which I immediately put to good use as I needed to take my antibiotics without an empty stomach. I usually mix my Vega with 1 part water- 1 part almond milk, and the recommended scoop of protein. From what I could taste (damn you congestion) it was sweet- and sadly that’s about all I can say right now. It definitely filled me up, but I will do a better review on them later.

For lunch, I had what was left of my spicy kimchi soup, and chopped up a beautiful yellow zucchini!! I absolutely love squash of all kinds.

These are low in calories (one medium zucchini is only 31 calories!!) have loads of vitamins and are just plain yummy.
And yellow vegetables are ‘beauty’ aids 💛

😍😍 Oh my GOD I am freaking out! I will also do a review on these fabulous bars. I want to eat one right now, but I can barely taste anything. So best to not spoil it!

What are your favorite protein goodies!?
