Get in Shape for Summer with Nutribar | Contest & Giveaway

Get in Shape for Summer with Nutribar | Contest & Giveaway

“We all know that keeping up a healthy lifestyle in today’s 24-7 world isn’t easy, and it’s even more challenging when it comes to maintaining or losing weight – something that’s on everyone’s mind as summer approaches,” said Brenda Embree, Nutribar Brand Manager. “No one can deny that eating a healthy, balanced diet of whole foods is optimal, but who has the time to consistently prepare proper meals three times a day, every day?”

That’s where Nutribar meal replacement bars come in. As opposed to protein bars that are intended as a snack to manage hunger between meals and may not have an optimal nutritional breakdown, Nutribar meal replacement bars provide “Nutrition on the Go” – delivering all the essential vitamins and minerals, protein, carbs and fat found in a completely balanced whole foods meal without the required time and energy to prepare it.

Also unlike protein bars, Nutribar meal replacement bars are regulated under Canadian government guidelines and approved by Health Canada. What’s more, clinical studies show that Nutribar meal replacement bars satisfy hunger and cravings for up to five hours, eliminating the desire to snack between meals.

According to Embree, replacing one meal a day with a Nutribar meal replacement bar not only saves time, but also helps maintain a healthy weight. Replacing two meals a day with a Nutribar meal bar has been clinically shown to lead to weight loss of up to eight pounds over six weeks.

“Complete Nutribar meal replacement bars with nutritious eating the rest of the day as well as a regular exercise plan, and you’ve got yourself an optimal healthy lifestyle that fits into a busy schedule,” she said.

INTERVIEW WITH JUGO JUICE | CONTEST & GIVEAWAY

INTERVIEW WITH JUGO JUICE | CONTEST & GIVEAWAY

The Mighty Kale is one of my all time favourite smoothies from Jugo Juice. This season, one of the fastest-rising cocktail trends over the past few years has been blending herbal and botanical ingredients with more traditional flavours, but this trend isn’t just for the 19 and older.

 

Say goodbye to artificial flavours and added sugars, the fresh and bright flavours of botanicals and herbs are the perfect addition to beverages, especially smoothies. With their highly varied flavours, aromas and health benefits they provide a warmth freshness that’s perfect for fall.

 

 

This fall, Jugo brought the popular cocktail trend to its smoothie line-up with the Blueberry Basil smoothie. The superfood smoothie is only 205 calories and is packed with the anti-oxidant power of berries, is brightened up by the herbal flavour of fresh basil. It is available until November 14th.

 

Interview with Jamie Vadori, Jugo Juice‘s Director of Marketing  
N: What values and beliefs define your brand?
J: Healthy doesn’t have to taste terrible. It’s all about making real vs artificial. We want to provide healthy choices on the go.

J: Our target groups of customers are 18-80. Jugo Juice is fit for everyone looking for a healthy and active lifestyle. For example we also sponsor Juice Juice 10k marathons, yoga-thons, etc. to motivate people.
