1.CocoaVia. Heart Healthy Mix.

This mix supports cardio-vascular health with the natural taste of rich chocolate packed with cocoa flavarons. You suppose to mix it into your milk, oatmeal, yogurt or protein shake.

I saw it at the store before, but didn’t want to buy the whole package, so I was happy to try it from the Bulu Box. It tastes pretty good, and I might have it sometimes in my protein shake.

The ingredients though didn’t make me happy: soy lecithin, carrageenan, sucralose etc. NATURALLY FLAVORED on the package flashes the RED LIGHT for me. This ingredient always hides tons of chemicals in it:(

2. Shapeology Burn Blend.

I got it this month again. I already said what I think about supplements like this.

Never tried it.

3. PowerBar Performance Energy Blend.

Fuel your body before, during and after exercise with natural ingredients like bananas and blueberries. Energy Blends make the perfect on-the-go boost for the endurance athlete in you.

Sounds good, and tastes good, but it’s easier for me just eat the real fruits. If I don’t have anyhing to snack on, and can’t get any fresh fruit, I would probably go with it. But you can also buy just baby puree food and have it as a snack.

4. Twin Lab Power Fuel.

Power Fuel intensifies your muscle pump to boost performance and ignite strenght gains. It utilizes four types of carbohydrates, absorbed sequentially, to put your muscles into overdrive and keep them there rather than spiking and crashing.

It’s a good supplement for heavy-weight lifters. I can use it from time to time, but in general, I feel totally ok during exercising without it.

5. Garden of Life RAW Organic Protein Powder.

Packed with protein, vitamins and live probiotics, Garden of Life Raw Protein is a great meal replacement or post workout drink. Raw Protein is vegan, gluten, dairy, soy free and still tastes delicious.

I love Garden of Life. I had their protein powder(chocolate) before, and it tastes good. This time I got Vanilla Spiced Chai and it tastes delicious. This sample was good.

6. Online Training. Daily Burn.

Get your sweat on and burn fat anywhere with access to an enormous library of workouts spanning all areas of fitness at DailyBurn.com.

I got the gift card to use on this site, to upload different workouts and exercises and use them for 1 months for free, and 20$ store credit to spend on nutritional supplements .

I always look for new workouts and exercises to try, so this gift card is used already:)

In general I like my first box more than the second one, but I still found some nice samples in August box to use. I will definetely share my experience with the next month BULUBOX.

Rosemary Cauliflower “Mashed Potatoes”.

Potatoes are very popular in Ukraine. I remember from my childhood, we ate potatoes almost every day. My favorite dish was mashed potatoes with piece of chicken. I could eat mashed potatoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. To tell you the truth, I still love it, but don’t cook it very often.

Because it is not recommended to mix the starchy vegetables with the animal protein, I kept looking for some recipe that will work and taste as good as my favorite dish from the past.

When I found Cauliflower ” mashed potatoes” idea, I wasn’t sure if it tastes good. It might taste good as a cauliflower, but not as good as mashed potatoes.

Anyway, I got the huge head of cauliflower and tried to cook it at home.

This cauliflower-based version is the same texture to enjoy as mashed potato, but sans the butter, whole milk and table salt that make mashed potatoes a beauty-busting food.

It turned out so delicious for me, and tasted like REAL mashed potato. My husband still doesn’t know, how I made it, because he called it mashed potatoes:)

Rosemary Cauliflower “Mashed Potatoes”

1 head cauliflower, broken into florets, stem and leaves removed

1 small garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup almond or coconut milk

1tbs olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Sea salt, to taste

1tsp. dried rosemary

Bring water to a boil and steam cauliflower in a steamer for about 6-7 minutes, until softens.

Put the cauliflower florets in a food processor with the blade in place. Add garlic, almond milk, olive oil, black pepper, sea salt and rosemary. Pulse long enough to achieve the desired consistency.

Adjust seasonings to taste.

I served it with baked salmon and fresh veggies salad.
