What makes a cold winter day absolutely impeccable? My fluffy throw, a warm beverage, and either a good book, fantastic film, or listening to some calming tunes nestled in the comfiest spot on the couch next to a roaring fireplace.
I like simple. In a world where things are already just so complicated, sometimes you just want to get back to more modest luxuries. Like a warm cup of hot chocolate.
Today during some quiet time (a rarity in this home!), I mixed together some almond milk, chocolate ND Shake, a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg and warmed in a mug.
It was snowing outside and I sat in my comfy corner of the couch facing the large bay windows admiring the falling snow, savouring the sound of silence, with a warm chocolate kiss on a cold day.
What’s an ND Shake you ask?
I was recently introduced to a fantastic new health product called ND Shakes as a new Ambassador for Orange Naturals. ND Shakes are the very first line of nutrient-dense shakes custom-made for each member of your family.
Formulated to meet unique daily requirements for women, men, teens and kids — there’s an ND Shake for everyone in the family — even your pickiest eaters! And yes I definitely have a very picky one on my hands in my 5 year old. And these things are jam-packed with good-for-you stuff!
Orange Naturals has just launched a blog, Naturally At Home, tailored to helping moms bring natural health into their homes!
The blogs are written by two naturopathic doctors, a homeopath and a nutritionist – and yes, they have a mom’s perspective! You should definitely check them out for some informative articles and tips to help you get back to better health.
Okay let’s be honest, when I think of powdered-base shakes, those grainy, bland, blah-tasting drinks come to mind.
I could hardly stand the taste of those, I can’t imagine my finicky daughter enjoying it.
Another person in my family that could really use a health boost is my husband. He tends to skip breakfast and his diet isn’t exactly the greatest right now. It really worries me.
So we had a shaking party in our kitchen and tried out their chocolate shakes (we are big chocolate lovers in this family!).
People know me for going above and beyond with new, innovative recipes, but this time it’s different. These ND Shakes are so fantastic pure and simple with just a beverage of your choice (we love Almond Milk or Soy Milk) for a fast shake, or if you want a smoothie, just a few additions (anything you like — fruits, nuts, spices, veggies, etc.) blended together and you have a seriously yummy smoothie loaded with major nutrients made just for you.
It’s not for every body.
Just your body.
I added some probiotic powder and fruits in my daughters smoothie. My husband and I just enjoyed it pure.
I was very amazed at how good it tasted. The shakes are the perfect thickness (almost like a smoother porridge).
