Not a glamorous subject
I kind of dismissed it but then he said it had probiotics and I might be interested in it.
My digestive system? Well it works good enough but it needs some improvement. I eat a ton of fiber. It's not like the materials to move along the "chute route" aren't available. If I'm lucky, I go every other day. I can count on both hands how many times in my life I've gone every day.
The Mr? He's like clockwork.
"It's 9:43am, be right back!"
"It's 5:17pm...gotta trot!"
I've tried probiotic pills and didn't have a good reaction to them. I loathe yogurt. I mean...L-O-A-T-H-E. The smell of it brings bile to my throat. Fermented food? Ain't happenin'. So my quest for probiotic infestation went by the wayside...until now.
GoodBelly encourages a 12 day challenge and if you aren't satisfied, they'll refund your money. What did I have to lose? Nothing. So I grabbed a carton of Pomegranate Blackberry. How does it taste? It tastes like juice (der) but there is an undertone of vinegar even though it's not one of the ingredients. Maybe it's the probiotics? I don't know. But it's not enough to turn me off to it and I'll try other flavors. One serving is eight ounces at 110 calories. I can't afford to be adding that many calories into my diet so I half it and drink four ounces. I started Sunday and am on day three. I'll say this, there's improvement thus far, if ya get my drift. I'll continue with the 12 day challenge and see if there is hope for a daily 'cleansing' ritual for me yet!
It's vegan, dairy, soy and gluten free.
If you want to check out their website to see more for yourself and if a store near you carries it, click here. I'll report back at the end of the 12 days to let you know uh...how it (I?) went.
Do you like yogurt? Would you try something like this if it helped you get regular? Are you one of those lucky people that void daily?
