“The food we eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” – Ann Wigmore

One of the things that has always made me upset about food in this country is the accesses to affordable organic food (or food as our grandparents used to call it). It saddens me to see countless children being raised on Franken-foods because it’s cheaper than grass fed organic beef and vegetables.  What if we could make it so affordable that it would make it accessible for the cost of a soda or a coffee?

I don’t often find products that I am so passionate about that I want to give it away like I am Oprah on one of those favorite things episodes everyone would field goal kick a baby to get into (I am totally going to give it away see below). I don’t even watch her show but I used to fantasize about getting to go to one as a kid.

I had decided this week that my next blog was going to be about Skoop, and last night I got the opportunity to be able to share it so I figured well now it can’t wait. The more people I see try Skoop, and they immediately notice a benefit I can’t help but think that this could really help a lot of people.  Skoop is a supplement containing “the mad science of mother nature,” and 10 servings of fruits and vegetables in one serving for only 50 calories and 3 grams of sugar. Skoop’s proprietary blend contains 41 obsessively researched ingredients that have been formulated to maximize nutrient synergies. The result is a surprisingly tasty, nutrient dense Superfood powder – rich with antioxidants, probiotics and adaptogenic herbs that reduce inflammation and acidic build-up, increase energy and resilience, and supercharge your immune system’s ability to fight disease.

Having worked for a company that specialized in organic products for nearly 7 years I am pretty careful about ingredients (and how they’re labeled) and try to shop as organically as possible.  When my sister was first trying to get me to try it back in January my only hesitation was that I couldn’t find their complete ingredient list on their website. However after further research it looks like all if not most of the ingredients are organic. So I figured what do I have to lose?

The recommend way to try Skoop is to do a 5 day challenge. It comes in a folder with 5 samples (it’s a dehydrated powder) and it’s recommended that you have it first thing in the morning. I drink mine with 8 oz of water, but it can be added to your choice of milk or milk like product, yogurt, protein shakes, pancakes, smoothies etc. It’s not meant to replace a meal but it’s often the only thing I have for breakfast and I am not hungry until lunch.

I was a little skeptic at first about the fantastic claims from the few people I knew that had started their challenges before me. I had given up soda about two or three week prior to starting Skoop and had still been thinking about the bubbly devil at the beginning of the challenge. I was shocked when  day 3 of the challenge came around I stopped craving sugar. I noticed that the mental fog I had cleared and I had more energy. In addition to not being groggy all the time it has seemed to really help with my insomnia. My Skin is looking fantastic, and I keep finding more things that are improving the longer I take it.

I really credit Skoop for helping me be soda free for 74 days so far, and for helping me stay within my calorie goals because I am not starving and snacking all day. One of my best friends was hooked after her 5 day challenge and says she’s went from drinking 12 cups of coffee to just one.

I love it so much that I want to give away 5 free five day challenges to my readers. Please see this page for more information on Skoop including a complete ingredient list and price. My readers will receive $10 off a 30 day supply if you purchase it through this link.

If you would like to be entered into the drawing for a 5 day challenge comment pick me on this post by 5:30pm MST Friday March 28th when I will select 5 lucky winners.

I am going to check this week when I go to my nutritionist meeting to see if it’s safe for post surgery bariatric patients, which I am really hoping it is. How awesome would it be to be able to get 10 servings of fruits and veggies post op mixed in with your protein shakes?

  1. Pick me! I’ve always had problems with sugar, but I’ve really been struggling with it since about November. It’s getting a little better but I’m hoping I can kick the cravings! Also Hi! I’m a stranger that happened by your blog, I love that you are so open and honest with this process. It’s really eye-opening.
