OUR FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!

We started our blog in August of 2009 and now we are finally going to try our first giveaway!! Our friends at Mix1 generously supplied us with some product to pass along to our lucky winner.
 Mix1 is an ALL-NATURAL protein, fiber and antioxidant drink. There are two types of drinks: 1.) protein-focused, 2.) fiber/antioxidant-focused. The protein-focused products come in 5 delicious flavors: Mix Berry, Key Lime, Tangerine, Mango, and Blueberry-Vanilla. Each 11 ounce bottle of the protein-focused drink is packed with 3 servings of fruits/veggies, 15 grams of whey protein isolate, and antioxidants equal to 4 cups of green tea (and only 200 calories)! These drinks are free of lactose, gluten, soy and caffeine. Also, these drinks do NOT need to be refrigerated (until opened).

The fiber/antioxidant-focused product comes in 2 delicious flavors: Orange-Carrot and Dark Berry. Each 11 ounce bottle of the fiber/antioxidant-focused drink is packed with a whopping 9 servings of fruits/veggies, 9 grams of whey protein isolate, 9 grams of fiber, and antioxidants equal to a number of cups of green tea (and only 115 calories). Again, these products are also free of lactose, gluten, soy, and caffeine. Again, these drinks do NOT need to be refrigerated (until opened).

Miss Bethany and I have tried all the flavors, and we absolutely love all of them. My favorite is probably either the Mango or the Blueberry-Vanilla, and Miss Bethany loves the Mix Berry. It's just really great that we've been lucky enough to find such a great product that fits PERFECTLY with our 'eat-clean' lifestyle. Most ready-made protein shakes on the market have a list of ingredients longer than a dictionary, and who knows what goes into some of them. Mix1 keeps it really simple, and makes quite a great clean, post-workout drink.

Now, here's how to enter our first giveaway. You can enter up to 3 times, by doing the following . . . . 

1.) Become a follower, or comment and let us know that you are a follower.
2.) What flavor would you most like to try?
3.) What is your current go-to protein drink?

We will keep the contest open until midnight on Thursday, April 8th. We will then compile all of the comments/entries, and randomly select a winner to receive a case of Mix1 (flavor of the winner's choosing), coupons for future Mix1 purchases, and Mix1 stickers for fun.

Let the contest begin! Our First Giveaway!! Thanks for playing, and get out there and try Mix1 . . . Good Luck!

Stay tuned, 'Countdown to Boston' post coming tomorrow!

Running Diva Mom said...

congrats on your first giveaway!! (I have a HUGE one posted right now, if you care to check it out!)

I would love to try the blueberry-vanilla -- sounds interesting and different. And different is good, when you're out there bored on a 20 miler!!

I don't currently drink any "protein" drinks but know that I need to consume more protein in my diet to stay "full". I usually drink electrolyte drinks, that just "do what they do" to keep me going.

J said...

I would say its a toss up between Mix berry and Mango. They really all sound good.

J said...

Currently I am not doing any sort of protein drinking. I mean I eat meat so I try to get protein there but i don't want to drink the whey protein powder stuff so I really haven't tried anything at all.

Emily said...

I would love to try the Mixed-Berry.

I am of course a follower.

And, my go-to protein drink is a make my own protein shake with vanilla protein power, frozen berries, yogurt and a splash of juice. It's to-die-for delish.

I AM A FOLLOWER - love you guys.
I would love to try the mixed berry.
I use the EAS powder, or sometimes Myoplex.

Stephanie said...

I am a loyal follower! Thank you for the giveaway! It is awesome that it is your first!!! So fun!

Stephanie said...

I love anything blueberry, so the blueberry-vanilla sounds awesome...and so does the tri-berry! Yum, yum!

Stephanie said...

I actually don't really drink any protein drinks. My husband just bought a protein powder from GNC a few weeks ago and loves it, and I drink a few sips here and there, but this sounds like something I would really like to try to see if it works for me!
I do sometimes eat a protein bar, Pure Protein, in the afternoons, when I am feeling hungry...it keeps me full until dinner!
