I am just FLOORED that almost a thousand of you want this Amazing Meal so much!!!!!!!! I’m going to save the winner for the end of the post just to keep the suspense goin’ 😉
First of all, check out my latest article on True/Slant about reducing that mid-day slump! We all get that way often….zero energy after lunchtime, nodding off while watching the office clock……you know what I’m talking about! In my article I address my “secrets” to staying energized and at the top of my “A game” all day long. Here’s a hint: the answer is not coffee.
This afternoon was a great example of why I am so thankful NOT to feel lethargic! I was literally glued to my laptop screen all.day.long. I was reading your hundreds of responses, working on the e-cookbook (love it!), working on the blog summit and writing articles such as the above.
I did get some good work done though and finally learned how to make my sidebar prettier! 😉
Gone are the days where my mecca of recipes is scrolled down messily on the side of my blog. Now are the days where we are clean and organized and all you have to do is click the pretty picture to access them all!
I snacked on one of Ange’s
amazingly delicious granola bars while I typed away—
And then I headed downtown for my Team in Training
nutrition clinic. The clinic was okay. Honestly, I feel like I’m so in tune in my current diet and lifestyle that I really don’t even enjoy hearing about the whole “counting calories/eating three servings of meat per day/having hi-fiber cereal for breakfast”
thing. I mean, that may work for some people and the speaker did have great advice that as a whole, Americans are incredibly unbalanced and that leads to the 65% of us that are overweight but I felt like the session was definitely geared to overweight people, which was odd because she was talking to a roomful of endurance athletes.
Anyway, the clinic lasted until almost 8:00 and by that time I was getting, as we say in the blog world, hangry. I was cold, too, since it was storming and I was wearing shorts so when I got home I had comfort food on my mind.
Yep, tonight was totally a pb& j (or in my case, an ab&j) kind of night. There’s not much that beats a toasted Ezekiel muffin slathered with almond butter and raspberry preserves. With a hot cup of mint tea, it was the perfect dinner.
To make it even more perfect, I had two Newman’s Own mint oreos for dessert. I took the cookies apart to make them last as long as possible. Soooooo good!
And now, the moment you all have been waiting for (muahahaha)—And the winner of the gigantic 2 lb tub of Amazing Meal is…………………………

Kodi writes, ” Hi Jenna!! I so totally NEED Amazing Meal Powder. I am a young mom (25:-) of a 2 1/2 year old (Kash) and a 6 month old (Presley)! I stay home with them all day so needless to say I need all the energy I can get!! Between potty training, tantrums, playing and nursing my daughter I am wiped out by about 3pm. I am hoping that adding Amazing Meal powder to my smoothies would carry me through this afternoon slump and also pass on nutrients to Presley! I would also feel great knowing that I was getting energy from healthy ingredients rather than sugar and coffe ….blush…. I could really use a nice surprise like this too to get me through my week 🙂 Have a great day!”
Congrats, Kodi!!! Shoot me an email with your shipping address and I’ll pass it along to my contact at Amazing Grass. I hope you love it and it brings you enough energy to chase around your rugrats all day! 😉
In my opinion you EACH need a tub of Amazing Grass based on your reasons!!
I’ll be the first to admit that this stuff IS expensive. But you know what would be more expensive? Doctor’s visits, chemo, prescription drugs, vitamins, surgery, hospital visits, a face lift…………your health is the number one most important thing that you own.
If you don’t have your health, you have NOTHING and things can change so incredibly fast. You only have one body and you should treat it right. Besides, how good will that new dress look if you’re sick all the time and have sallow, tired eyes? Spend money on what lasts, not on fads. Plus, if you buy Amazing Grass
you will likely be able to quit your coffee addiction and can save mega bucks by not buying Starbucks every morning before work! See?! I know this only because after drinking greens I WAS able to quit drinking coffee like an addict and my bank account has thanked me for all the dollars saved.
