Drink Your Daily Greens - #HalfPint



I have been trying to live a much healthier lifestyle. This past year has been really hectic and just filled with.... I'm trying to find the perfect word to use here. Let's call it strife. While I've had a fun filled year, filled with trips to Europe and visits to the "Happiest Place on Earth", Disneyland, both in Paris and California, I've also had some not so happy times. You may have noticed that I've been absent lately here. That's because I lost a family member very dear to me. I originally started this post and I revamped it completely because of that loss. Today I want to tell you that you really don't know how long you have with a loved one so cherish every moment, and don't forget to tell them that you love them. You never know when you'll ever get that chance again. With all that said, you also need to focus on your own health and wellbeing. That's why I have been drinking my Daily Greens.


I know that I am not the healthiest apple in the bushel and it's not my job to tell you what to do with your life. I try and avoid junk food at all cost and I also stay away from soda and candy. My kids would tell you that they live for Halloween because it's the one day that they get to really eat candy, that is until November 1st comes along, because then I take it all away. However, that didn't stop me from having a high bad cholesterol and diabetes diagnoses at my last doctor's appointment. The one thing that she stressed to me was to watch my diet. Here I was thinking that I was eating great, doing everything that I needed to stay in shape, including working out, but it just wasn't enough. So when I was introduced to the Daily Greens Half Pints, I was intrigued. They're actually considered probiotics smoothies, and trust me, kids love them too!


I'm not a fan of veggies and there are lots of veggies that I don't eat. However, when that veggie is combined with a drink mixed with my favorite of all sugars, FRUITS, I'm always intrigued. So I decided to give them a try and now I'm hooked. These are not diet drinks, but you do get your daily servings of fruits and vegetables with them. One thing to note is that they're also organic and they're a great way to hydrate. All of the juices start with dark leafy greens and they are all cold-pressed. If you're not sure about cold-pressed drinks, they are actually better for you since they tend to retain more of their nutrients compared to those made with heat. The downside to cold-pressed drinks are that they are a little bit more expensive, but guess what? The things that are good for you usually are.

However Daily Greens are reasonably priced and you're able to get them at your local Costco. That's where I actually had my first sample and now I pick them up there. I even have my kids who aren't big fans of veggies like I am, drinking them as well. My favorite is totally the Carrot Kick, which is a tasty blend of carrot, kale, coconut water and pineapple, while Madison's surprisingly is Green Thing. There is also another flavor Dragon Power which tastes really great too.


Daily Greens Half Pints are all naturally vegan, gluten and soy-free. The contain no preservatives or artificial flavors. They are also made from raw, organic and fair trade ingredients. Straight from the farm directly to you in a drink that you will not want to put down.

Let's discuss: How do you get your daily servings of fruits and veggies? 

The makers of Daily Greens would LOVE for you to give them a try as well, so they're offering one of my readers a chance to win a 12 pack of the Half Pints, so you too can share in the love. Winner will be randomly selected by PromoSimple and will have 48hrs to respond to the winning email. Failure to do so will mean forfeiting your prize and a new winner will be chosen. Good luck!

  1. What a great way to get in your daily greens! I am not much of a vegetable eater so this would be perfect for me.

  2. Everyone but me in my family hates vegetables. It is so hard to get them to eat healthy. But if the good stuff is hidden by something sweet, that would really help them to get the nutrients they need. I would love to try out this product.

    1. This is a great way to get them to "drink" their veggies. I really LOVE the carrot kick but the others are good too.

    1. You don't have it at your local Costco? You can also order online, if I'm not mistaken.

  5. I'm so sorry about losing a family member and having a bad diagnosis. These seem great. I like vegetables generally in a salad - uncooked. Although cooked vegetables are great this time of year.
    I always take a probiotic and I'd love to get nutrients with a drink.

    1. Yes, it's why I've been MIA the past week but I'm getting better. I love to get my nutrients in a smoothie as well and this is amazing!

  6. These sound really good! I eat a diet that is gluten free and refined sugars free so I am always looking for new things to try that fit into that!

  7. I add my greens to my smoothies each day or I would eat very little. These look like an easy way to get the daily need

  10. These Daily Greens drinks look interesting and sound really healthy. I will have to share these with my nieces for their kids who don't like all veggies. Thanks for sharing these awesome drinks.

    1. Oh they are very healthy and if Madison, who prefers sweet drinks now, loves them, then your nieces may love them as well.

  11. So I love veggies and fruits so it is not hard at all for me to get them in. If I travel, however, that's different. This looks good as a travel supplement to me.

    Replies
    1. I have to admit that they do taste better when they're cold so if you're traveling try to keep them as cool as possible.

  12. I'm sorry to hear about your difficulties this year. I will have to check out Costco, I haven't seen this product before. I'm trying a new approach on healthy eating and this could be helpful.

    1. Oh I don't get it in my foods either but this way I get it.

  20. I love juicing myself but that takes a long time in the morning. This is definitely faster and easier. I will need to try this brand. I have tried Naked juices so this is next on my shopping list!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh this is way easier and while I've never done juicing, this probably counts since I drink about 2 a day.

  21. So that dragon power one looks tasty and also FUN! Loving the bright pink color. I try to wake up every day and healthier than the day before, but it is such a struggle! LOL

    1. Oh I know the struggle but surprisingly the Carrot Kick actually tastes so much better to me.

  23. These look yummy! A great way to get your greens for fussy easters. Wonder if they're sold in the UK?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love this, more for my kids than for myself, I have no problem filling up on greens, but my kids often do. If they could drink their veggies, I'm sure they'd be getting a lot more of their daily intake than they do now.

    Replies
    1. Oh then I think that you should let them try it. I think you'll be surprised at how much they like them.

  26. I certainly struggle with getting enough vegetables and fruits into my diet (especially with little ones), so I add them into smoothies and make things like zucchini muffins to get extras.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh zucchini muffins are great! I haven't had them in quite some while.

      Delete
  27. These sound amazing! I love that they are organic because that is all we drink and eat is organic. Can't wait to get some of these.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Oh then this is perfect for you. We try and eat as much organic foods as we can but some things we don't get that way, unfortunately.
