The year before I went to college and eventually started this blog, I got inspired to live a healthier lifestyle than the one I was living.  At the time, I had just quit working at a pretzel joint in the mall.  I only worked there in the summer between semesters, but in that short period of time I had gained 12lbs.  TWELVE POUNDS IN ONE SUMMER!

I had enough.  I wanted to get healthy.  I wanted to feel better and treat my body better.  A girl can only take so many butter-drenched pretzels  😜

I went to the grocery store and stepped into the produce section — part of the grocery store that I wasn’t all too familiar with.  I looked at the leafy greens and carrots and beets.  A few steps further and I got to the salad dressings, vegan fix-ins, and bottled juices and smoothies.  I always liked getting fruit smoothies at stands and restaurants, and I didn’t own a blender back then, so I thought that getting smoothies from the grocery store was an easy way to get in a few servings of fruit without having to wash, chop and prep anything at home.

I scanned through all the bottles, looking at the ingredient lists, nutrition labels, and price tags.  I eventually decided on getting about 6 different flavors of Bolthouse Farms® smoothies and protein shakes.  I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were, and after that, I kept returning back and back again for the Blue Goodness smoothie and the Blended Coffee Protein Plus…  deeeelicious!  😍
