Ambro_prod_5

Ambronite is a nutritional drink intended to supply all of a human body’s daily needs, made from 20 ingredients, including spinach and wild sea-buckthorn. Ambronite’s name is based on the Greek word for “food of the Gods”

I was contacted by Valerie from Ambronite to see if I would like to try their product. Well after reading about it, I was like YES, please. Talk about being excited waiting to receive a shipment.  I was pumped. So while waiting I started reading and stalking them on Social Media. Instagram Pics. Tweets, you name it, I was hooked. So once I received it, it was a test of wills for me. I wanted to try it on an upcoming flight to Florida I had coming up, so I had to look at this box for 1 week before being able to try it.

I always get crazy hungry when I travel. Not sure why really, it’s mostly just sitting and waiting when starting your journey by plane. Must be the boredom and thought of being in a capsule with nowhere to go that does it. SO first let’s get down to what this product is.

Organic Drinkable Meal

Ambronite is a quick and healthy drinkable shake. Each bag contains one full meal (500 kcal) of all of your essential nutrients.

Ambronite goes where you do; Home, office, in your bag and on your travels and outdoor adventures.

Packed with natural goodness and free of artificial nasties, it tastes of oats and fresh nuts with a hint of Nordic herbs and berries. The pure, neutral taste mixes well with water, juices and your favorite fruit.

Get over hunger for 4-5 hours

-Boost your productivity and stay in flow
-Avoid afternoon sleepiness and sugar rush
-Concentrate on what you do best
-Get everything your body needs
-Only organic real-food, no cheap supplements

Food for a modern lifestyle

We believe that a creative and ambitious individuals deserve the best possible food to live life to the fullest. Food has a critical impact on our productivity and happiness. Our daily meals should let us do more of what we love.

Ambronite is your unfair advantage

We’ve crafted a drinkable supermeal to give you more freedom, time and choice. With Ambronite, you can boost your productivity and stay in flow. Ambronite takes away your hunger for 4-5 hours in a few minutes. Instead of distractions and afternoon sleepiness, you can concentrate on what you do best.

Here is my experience:

So on my way to the airport I drank my Supermeal. I really wanted to see if it would hold over my hunger for 3-4 hours possibly 5 if any flight delays occurred. Well it did. I had a late flight to Fort Myers to go visit my friend Jody. Leaving at 6:45pm and arriving at 11:00pm, I really did not want to be tempted by expensive and unhealthy food in the airport. I always have healthy snacks packed but I wanted to have a very healthy meal prior to traveling to help keep me healthy and my immune system working well while I traveled. Just being on a plane can get you sick with all the germs and people who travel while they are sick.

So I am one of those people who love texture in foods and smoothies. I like to have a little chew or bite when making smoothie bowls and eating oatmeal. I love the texture of grains and I really love chewy grains. I love the flavor of oats. This product is amazing. It mixed up easily with just a few shakes. It had real texture and real flavor of the natural ingredients. You can truly taste the greens in this. Healthy greens and grains. Perfect combo. I do not want fake flavors, with sugary ingredients. I want real and with this Ambronite Supermeal it WAS REAL.  I honestly do not think I have ever tried a product I was so happy with. This stuff is the real deal. Healthy, Easy to Make, Great flavor and Convenient anywhere any time.

Just perfect as a total meal replacement.

I also had a packet on hand with me over the week-end so I could have it on my way home! Again, it did not disappoint. I just mixed and enjoyed on the flight home.

Just a few of my favorite Skull things! I don’t ever think of my self as having any particular fashion style I just wear what I like and what brings me joy.  Being in my mid 40’s I still don’t think I will ever be too old to wear my skull clothing, or express my personal style. I plan on being a hip old chick. I plan on rockin’ funky color nails, fun jewelry and clothing that I love.

Happy Summer!

First off, Lets talk food.

20150715_184415

Fresh, Healthy Foods. Here are a few of the summer time foods I have been preparing.20150716_182406

Loving my Blue Apron Summer Menu options. Other Posts Here and Here.

20150713_185917

Now on to my Garden Blooms.

20150713_064454

Cannot believe how beautiful my day lilies are this year.

20150709_064646

Loving the Purple, Yellow, Red and Orange. Such bright vibrant colors.

20150713_064306

So in love with this little corner of my yard.

20150709_064730

Succulents are doing really well, they love the heat.

20150713_064355

Now to My Furry Babies. Adorable I know.

Stuart is getting old. Stuart is getting stiff and having problems jumping up and going down things. So when Neocell offered to send him a supply of ArthroPet Wafers I was really happy to have him try them.

DSC_2270

ArthroPet® is an innovative formula that provides chicken cartilage (a natural source of collagen type II, glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid), plus MSM, CMO and Manganese. ArthroPet is a safe and effective natural food supplement.

  • All Natural
  • ArthroPet formula supports the diets of pets suffering articular cartilage and connective tissue problems
  • ArthroPet supports healthy & strong joints
  • ArthroPet is a delicious natural chicken flavor chewable wafer, pets love it every time!

 ArthroPet

 

So I planted the bottle with the wafers on the top near the toys basket to see how long it would take for the kids to discover them.

20150716_181944

He Investigated and Discovered, and he snatched it with his tail a waggin’. You cannot get any food or treats past this one.

20150716_181958

He was so excited I had to let him take it outside to eat it on his own. He loved it.

Stuart shared one of the wafers with Ginger. I don’t plan on giving these to her on a regular basis like I will Stuart. Ginger is still very young and is super spring-loaded with no joint pain or problems, but its good to know they are available for the times she will need it.

DSC_2272

I love these little babies so I was so happy to see if giving this to Stuart would help make his days better and help ease some of his pain.

20150709_182109

So when I started him on the wafers I just tried to note any changes. I did notice that he had a little more pep in his step. Over the past few months he has been hesitating before jumping up on things, or giving a little bark or a whine that he wants me to pick him up without even trying to jump up. So I have seen him able to jump up with ease more and more. So I have to say I really feel like he has benefited from this supplement, and I am very happy about that. I really try to keep an eye on him when it comes to keeping his little legs healthy. A major and common problem with chihuahuas are leg and joint problems. With him getting up in age my goal for him is to keep him happy and healthy. Thank-you Neocell for making such a wonderful product for our fury babies.

Neocell sent me my own supplements a few months ago and I still continued to use them after they sent me the product for the review. See Post Here.

DSC_2168

I was at my Local Health Food Store Dale’s Natural Foods, in Flint Michigan a few months ago and found that they carry both these products in the store, Major Bonus for me. I still have 1/2 of the Collagen Sport Supplement mix left, but had run out of the Biotin Bursts so I grabbed another box of them. I love the Acai Berry Chews so much. I really think it has done so much for nail strength and hair strength.

Now on to some DIY projects I have been so excited to share.

DIY Projects…Love…Love…Love having projects to work on. I love and live to recreate, construct and craft. I always have a project on the deck waiting for me to tackle. So in Bora Bora (Link to Post) I picked up Tahiti Vanilla Bean for cooking, and for some projects I had in mind that I wanted to make. Many more to follow after this one below.

So I grabbed my Vodka and made my own Vanilla (Vanille) Extract as gifts.  I made my own vanilla extract in 2013 from a Foodie Pen Pal Foodie Box I received and was so excited to make my own from fresh vanilla pods from my vacation.

Make Your Own Vanilla Extract

20150418_154329

 

Get your Bean 

Get a bottle to store your extract

Buy alcohol; pure alcohol, colorless and flavorless

– Split each bean lengthwise and drop in your empty bottle

Wait 4 to 6 Months

Enjoy.

20150418_162613

Just made some easy handwritten labels with instructions and information about the Extract.

20150418_162641

I also made flavored vanilla bean vodka for an adult beverage option. Here you only leave the vanilla bean pods in for a few days just to flavor the vodka.

20150418_154450

I made a two options. Coconut and Vanilla Bean and Vanilla Bean.

20150418_163517

They were so delicious over Ginger Ale and Ice. Sorry No Pictures. I forgot to snap one I was so eager to try. I will tell you this. It was very fresh tasting having actual fresh vanilla beans in making this.

Something Fun.

Received my very own Young Living Essential Oils Starter Kit. So excited to try this brand. Being a huge user of Essential oils for years myself I decided to try a brand that you can use internally. Most of my usages over the years has been for Health and Beauty Products.

20150707_193402

Made my own DIY Lip Gloss.

DSC_2224

Used a glass bowl over the water filled pan and kept the heat low for a soft boil which allows the steam to slowly melt ingredients.

DSC_2223

What I used.

DSC_2222

DSC_2228 DSC_2230DSC_2229 DSC_2231

 After just a few easy steps your filling your containers and Cooling them in the fridge for just about 10 minutes or so.

DSC_2226

SO I tried a fun project and reused and EOS container I love so much. Here’s how that works; Once your old  EOS container is used, you can pop off the center grate and screw it into the cap. You then fill with the new ingredients and place in fridge for 10 minutes. After it has cooled you screw and pop container back together and Boom..Reused container that…Wait for it. DSC_2236

Looks Store bought. (Sorry about the terrible nails-Zero time to touch up).  It was such a fun little project to complete, and I seriously cannot believe how much it looks like the real deal. DSC_2238

Feel like I Nailed it! So excited about this project. It was so fun and easy…Except for the clean up. Gotta be honest. Yikes that excess beeswax is a chore to clean out of the mixing bowls and spoons, but then again, it was totally worth it. Look at the shine. I did add a chunk of color from a tube of lipstick I will never wear to get that little hint of color and tint.

DSC_2243

I also made a bunch of other little container for gifts.

DSC_2255

Loved this project and cannot wait to make them again. Christmas is coming up soon.

DSC_2256To complete the gifts. I just decorated with initials of my  friends and family and a little bling, and a fun little bag. DSC_2269

Since I had my Bees Wax out I made a Lip, Hand and Cuticle Gloss.

DSC_2257

 

Ingredients:

Tablespoon Beeswax

Tablespoons Coconut Oil

Vitamin E Oil

Teaspoons Sweet Almond Oil

10 Drops Essential Oils. I used Frankincense, and Copaiba. Both are wonderful for the skin and very healing.

So soft and really makes the skin feel protected. After working into your skin it does not feel oily or sticky at all. It’s like it absorbs into your skin and goes right to work.
DSC_2262I hoarded these all to my self. It is has to be tested first 😉

Hoping your summer is going well.
