On top of being a health conscious college student's dream come true, Eat Fit Go provides healthy, chef driven meals that are never frozen, cooked fresh daily, have NO preservatives, low in sodium, high in protein, allergy friendly - the list of perks goes on and on. They have breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, drinks - the options are literally endless! My absolute favorite part is that ALL of the ingredients are natural, real foods and are listed on the container so I know exactly what I am putting in my body.

The new flavors are the BOMB. They are part of Arctic Zero's "chunky" pints collection, so each new flavor has chunks of deliciousness mixed in. Rocky Road Trip, Peanut Butter Swirl, and Cherry Chocolate Chunk: Yes. SO much yes.

If you read my first review of several of Enlightened's other ice cream pint flavors, you are already aware of my love for their ice cream that is LESS THAN 100 calories per serving and LESS THAN 400 calories per pint. Each flavor is low in sugar and fat, high in fiber and protein, and still maintains a sweet, rich flavor and creamy texture that a full fledged pint of diet sabotage would have. 

 

Well, it was a happy day in the world of all ice cream loving fitness fanatics when Enlightened released SEVEN new flavors. Among the new pints were some of my absolute favorites: Birthday Cake, Fudge Brownie, and Red Velvet. I was definitely the most excited to try these three, but the other four stole my heart too.

Purify Tea is a company based out of Manhattan, New York that focuses on using healthy, organic, and all natural ingredients to create their teas. All of their ingredients are grown, harvested, and processed without the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and growth agents. For me, it is important that I know what kinds of ingredients are in the foods and drinks I am putting in my body. I love that Purify Tea does not use ANY artificial flavoring or additives in their teas; the incredible flavor is all-natural!

I want to give a HUGE thank you to Enlightened for introducing me to their products by sending me all SEVEN (that's right, SEVEN) pints of their delicious healthy ice cream. I was so excited to come home for winter break last week to an early Christmas present sitting on my doorstep! It's always a good day when you come home to a box full of seven pints of ice cream, right?

 

I'll be honest, I tried a spoonful of every pint the minute I opened the box. How could anyone resist flavors like Triple Chocolate, Frozen Hot Cocoa, Mint Chocolate Chip, Sea Salt Caramel, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Caramel Oatmeal Cookie Crunch, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip - especially for less than 100 calories per serving and less than 400 calories for an entire pint? I definitely could not! Here are the flavors I recommend giving a try (It was hard to narrow it down).

Teami Blends recently sent me a 30 day supply of their Detox Tea to try out. The Teami 30 Day Detox Tea strives to get rid of the toxins that your body is holding on to; allowing it to function properly, burn the correct amount of calories, and restore your natural energy levels. This Detox Tea is completely sugar free, dairy free, GMO free, and gluten free. The natural ingredients used in these teas aim to boost metabolism, burn stored fat, calm muscle tightness, detox internal organs, reduce bloating, improve skin complexion, flush out toxins, and aid with digestion. I will say I am usually more of a coffee drinker, but I am excited to give Teami Blends Tea a try. I will be sure to share a review after I complete my 30 day plan.

Look no further - BetterBody Foods has all of the essential ingredients to create baked goods that are lighter, nutrient packed, and contribute to your health, happiness, and overall wellness. You may have read about BetterBody Foods in several of my previous recipes posted on the blog, but after receiving a wonderful assortment of treats from BetterBody Foods, I wanted to do a further review of some of the products I received.

I have a MAJOR sweet tooth - and ice cream is definitely my favorite sweet treat! But a pint of regular ice cream - Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor, for example - is 1,080 calories and 100 GRAMS of sugar.

 

Diet sabbotage!

 

And we all know how easy it is to eat the entire pint. (I am guilty!) That is why I absolutely LOVE Arctic Zero - it's the PERFECT way for me to satisfy my ice cream craving without compromising my fitness goals. These creamy treats are made with whey protein, sweetened with monk fruit, and contain no artificial flavors or colors.

Halo Top Ice Cream is a low calorie, high protein, low sugar, healthy alternative to your average pint of Ben & Jerry's. Halo Top is different than Arctic Zero, because it is still real ice cream. Unlike Arctic Zero (which is considered a "Fit Frozen Dessert" rather than "ice cream") Halo Topproducts do contain dairy. Because of this, Halo Top is able to achieve a VERY similar taste, texture, and consistency to real ice cream that would contain significantly higher amounts of fat, sugar, and carbs. Check out this comparison of Halo Top's Vanilla Bean flavor to the leading ice cream brands from www.halotop.com:
