I have gotten a few combinations. 

7oz ground bison with 6oz broccoli and 6oz sweet potato

7oz ground turkey with 6oz asparagus and 6oz sweet potato

7oz Tilipia with 6oz of mixed veggies ands 6oz sweet potato

I then cut the sweet potato and increased to 7oz of each vegetable

I had to discontinue the turkey as it was way too dry! It was torture eating it! The Bison is moist and delicious, but I can’t eat it 3 times a day! So I rotate 2 meals one day, one meal the next, 2 meals the next day etc… I rotate it with grilled chicken. 

I also removed the Tilipia, because it is good once in a while, but everyday it gets tiring! Plus the fear of transport back and forth from Manhattan in the summer is a worry. Especially; if for some reason I don’t eat it before I leave work, I carry it back to New Jersey and to the gym. 

My current configuration is:

7oz ground bison with 7oz broccoli 

7oz grilled chicken with 7oz  asparagus 

The food is delivered fresh not frozen! I though it was delivered frozen, so the hard part is being there for the delivery. 

The food is delicious! I’m pretty sure there is fresh garlic in the bison and the veggies. Add a little Siracha or Trader Joes green dragon hot sauce on the grilled chicken and boom it’s off to the races!

Supplement Review: Harvest Bay Coconut Water

20140616-061518-22518661.jpg
Nature’s Hydration
What makes our coconut water Nature’s Hydration? It’s simple. Harvest Bay is 100% not from concentrate, all-natural coconut water from young green coconuts. That’s it. Nothing extra, like added sugar or fat.
Our coconut water is a natural isotonic beverage. Simply put, that means it helps replace fluids and salts that are lost during exercise. And, each serving has more potassium — the natural muscle builder — than a banana.
Combine the natural isotonic qualities, no added sugars and only 35 calories per serving, and you have a perfect (and perfectly natural) beverage to get you through your workout … or your workday!
– harvest-bay.com

Let me tell you this: This is the first Coconut Water I have ever purchased that tastes like you actually drank it straight from the coconut! I have not enjoyed the many others I have tried over the years!

This stuff is by far the best!

I like drinking a half a glass a day post workout. It claims superior hydration, not sure if that is true, but it can’t hurt 😉

If you like coconut water, or you are looking for that extra edge or if you want an all natural product that will aid you in your weight-loss journey, try this product! You will not be disappointed!

I have been having a bunch of coconut water lately including Vitacoca and this stuff is light years better! Tastes like its fresh out if the coconut! I can’t stress that enough!

**Update** June 30th 2014
I just had Zico another one of the large manufacturers and it was pretty good, I would say it was 2nd place behind Harvest Bay. Zico tasted much more natural than Vitacoca! Harvest Bay still rules! I actually found it at a new Stop & Shop which has a larger Natural Foods section then the others. However; it was much more expensive than Green Life Market! It was I believe $5.35 to Green Life’s $4.00

This review is about: Cinnamon Roll

I was a little skeptical as most flavored nut butters are overdone and really fake tasting!

This has a strong Natural Almond Butter flavor with a pleasant aftertaste of coconut and cinnamon. I love the taste!

It’s super creamy and thin with a few occasional chunks of pecans in it! (Will squeeze out of a nutbutter and jelly sandwich! But it’s amazing to top ice cream or iced yogurt with! Also great to mix with Greek yogurt!

I really enjoyed it! However; the only drawback I see is: the size is really small! And at 11.99 a bottle it’s a little too expensive for me; I can down a whole bottle in a sitting. Trader Joe’s plain almond butter is $6.99 for 16oz if this was $8.99 for 12oz it wouldn’t be that bad because it’s a specialty, but I think at $11.99 plus shipping it is pricing itself out of many peoples weekly shopping list.

If they could get in Amazon or Wholefoods then shipping costs could be offset.

I really like the product! And wish it all the success! And I will be buying it as a special indulgence. Next I want to try cookie dough! I am afraid I will eat the entire cookie dough bottle in one shot!

Try it youfresh naturals will like it!

If a smooth Skippy like nut butter is your preference Barney Butter is for you. If you like a smooth peanut butter with tiny bits of other nuts; kind of between smooth and chunky and layered flavors like a gourmet meal then YoufreshNaturals is the way to go. If you are looking for more a coconut butter than Sweet Spreads is your best option.
