OMG Blends Review and GIVEAWAY!!

I decided I wanted to give a new a different juice cleanse a try. I didn't want to lose weight, but needed to have a re-start after eating a whole bunch of not so healthy things in large amount. You know how it is. Some people come over for football Sunday and leave 3 different flavors of ice-cream in the freezer you can't just let it collect freezer burn. No, you need to have a bowl each night till its gone.

Well, I decided to try OMG Blends for this re-start because it includes soup! I LOVE SOUP! I'm not a fan of cold weather, but I love me some soup! Since cold weather is soup weather to me I thought this would be the perfect fall cleanse.

Ok. Now, before I get into the review I have a confession to make. I am probably the worst person to review this because.... BANANAS! So you may be aware that I have a serious issue with banana's, like I HATE them. Well, when I chose my blends I chose the ones that didn't have bananas in them. Well, I found out the hard way that most of the blends I picked did have bananas as one of the ingredients. So I actually didn't drink the banana ones after I realized they were in there. I instead had other people try them and let me know what they thought. But, boy of boy did I eat that soup!

I chose to do the 3 day starter blense. Here is how it works. Pick 6 blends and 3 soups. They have quite a few options to choose from. 

They have three different plans you can choose from. They are all pretty much the same, they just mix up when you have the blends or soups.

I chose to do plan # 1

Breakfast: Drink a Blend
Mid-Morning Snack: Healthy Snack
Lunch: Well rounded 350-500 calorie lunch with a protein
Mid-Day Snack: Souperblend
Dinner: Drink a Blend
Before Bed: Healthy Snack

So, here is what happened!

Monday Morning.
I woke up and found these two big coolers on the front porch. At first I thought I would get to keep them and I was pumped for a new lunch box. I was wrong, OMG Blends actually comes to pick them up the next day. That makes sense though, the cleanse is really affordable, so I'm sure if you got free coolers it wouldn't be.

One was full of the Blends.

The other full of soup!

It was like a juicy rainbow! Yay. I was pretty excited to see how big the soup was!

Breakfast: I got to work around 8:00 and was ready for my breakfast blend! Goji Berry, Chia Spice, Almond Milk and Brown Rice Protein! Look how happy and excited I am to try it!

And then I took a sip. I had an instant panic in my mouth. What was wrong, it sounded so perfect?
I found my answer pretty quickly. Bananas. Whoops. Should have looked into that. Well I couldn't have anymore. I passed it on to a coworker who really enjoyed it!

The banana shock took away my appetite so I waited till about 10:30 and had some carrots, celery and Trader Joe's Edamame Hummus.

When It came time for lunch I was pretty excited for my soup in the afternoon that I got some soup for lunch too. I grabbed the Minestrone because it had beans to get in my protein. 

When I got home from work around 6:00 I was pretty hungry so I cooked up the soup and it was a lot! I started with the tomato basil, which is the current seasonal soup.
It was really good and actually really filling. I ended up not being super hungry before bed, but I did eat half an avocado to snack a bit before bed since I did not try the night time blend.

Tuesday Morning

Breakfast: I had learned my lesson from the previous morning and I was pretty hungry when I woke up, so I double checked the ingredients. 
The iheartomg has blueberries, pecans, cinnamon, almond milk and brown rice protein. This was my absolute favorite. The next time I do this cleanse I will order one of these for each day.

Lunch: I was much happier after drinking this one!  I also was really, really full.  I skipped my mid-morning snack and got some soup and lentil chips for lunch

I picked the same soup. I figured soup it up on the juice and soup cleanse! Why not?

Mid-Day Snack: When I got home I had my souperblend! This time I had the kabocha, fuji apple, red pepper flake soup.

This was really good too! When they suggested I try it was a bit skeptical, but it ended up being my favorite of the three soups. 

Bedtime Snack: Later that night, I was hungry (Cuz I didn't drink the juice) So I cut up and apple and dipped it in almond butter.

Wednesday Morning

I had one more banana-less blend so I grabbed that first thing in the morning! I was feeling really great, too. I have noticed that when I do a cleanse, day 3 is always my favorite. I also have not gone past day 3, so that could have something to do with it. But, whatever the reason I felt great!

This one was cold pressed coffee, cacao, hazelnuts, and brown rice protein.

I drank this one on my way to work and it had a nice zing to it! 

I was a bad cleanse and skipped the mid morning snack again. It was a busy day and even though I had my carrots and celery all chopped up and ready to go, I just didn't feel hungry and by the time it was lunch time I decided to get my 350-500 calorie meal in.

I was a bit souped out so I went to Veggie Grill and grabbed the All Hail Kale salad with tempeh. Their website says it is 270 calories for the salad and 270 calories for the tempeh. A bit over, but I skipped the mid-morning snack so I figured whatevs.

when I got home I had my last souperblend! This was the carrot ginger soup.

This was pretty great too! It was so filling, I didn't even have a bedtime snack.

Well there you have it. I would definitely recommend this cleanse to someone who likes bananas. That was the only thing I did not like about it and that is because I'm a freak. The soups were my favorite part of this! Sometimes when cleansing you just want something warm, so this was perfect! I also really liked how this included a meal a day as well as healthy snacks. I would use it again to re-start and get set on a healthy path. To me it isn't so much a cleanse, but a guide to how I should be eating everyday. Healthy and balanced.

This is the perfect cleanse to do before the holidays hit! I know I'll be needing it before and probably after Thanksgiving!

Well, who wants to give OMG Blends a try?!?! I really enjoyed this and would love for someone else to give it a try (preferably someone without a weird banana phobia). We are "souper" excited  (haha I'm hilarious) to offer a free 3 day OMG Blendse to one of our readers!
