Have you ever had that moment where you’ve been working hard on a project or goal and finally you begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel (in a good way, haha!)? Well, I’ve recently had that euphoric sensation with one of my personal goals. To celebrate I’ve started making big plans for myself – and one of them is to finally, finally travel to Italy. I have only ever once been abroad, and traveling to Europe has been on my bucket list pretty much my entire life. I’ve given myself two years to go – meaning that from now to the spring of 2018 I’d like to have been to Italy once. It’s sort of a lifestyle decision, cutting out all the excessive excuses that I’ve clung too for the past few years. It’s a practice that I’m applying to other aspects of my life, including what I eat and how I take care of my body.
I was in Target the other day when I spotted the pretty cream and teal packaging of ALOHA. I’m not even going to mince words here – I was instantly drawn to their minimalist packaging. I’m at a point in my life where clutter just drives me crazy, which is fortuitous because ALOHA is all about making health simple and accessible. They know that for most people the idea of “maintaining a healthy lifestyle” has just become ridiculously complicated. Seriously. Even decisions like eating better can become instantly complex with people telling you to eat less carbs, just carbs, no sugar, only natural sugar, no fat, just healthy fats, just meat, no meat, just veggies, only these veggies, no salt, not enough salt. It’s crazy out there ya’ll. ALOHA makes things simple.
They are full of powerful ingredients and free of GMOs, gluten, dairy, soy, and anything artificial. All their products are plant-based and organic. I love it because I can trust that what I’m putting in my body is real. Thanks to ALOHA, I tried their True Chocolate Protein Powder. Each serving delivers 18g of protein, and is 100% free of harsh chemicals, fillers, and artificial sweeteners. I like to mix mine up in a berry smoothie, but the chocolate is not so pronounced that you couldn’t also mix it up with your favorite green smoothies or smoothie bowl too!
I also tried their ALOHA Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars. I am a die-hard fan of peanut butter and chocolate. In my mind there is no better marriage than that of PB and chocolate. Now I spend most of my time downtown, and I hate eating in public. So to have the option to snack on this as a meal replacement and get my hit of chocolate and peanut butter is the best news ever. These are so handy, and they have plenty of chew, so you don’t feel like you missed out on anything. And each bar also contains 18g of plant-based protein, as well as 6g of fiber!
I’m pretty obsessed with these protein products. I feel like you can taste the difference. The Superfoods like the ones used in ALOHA can superpower me to meet my goals by helping me feed my body with the things it needs.
You can give ALOHA a go by using their subscription plan on ALOHA.com and have them deliver to you, or you can swing by your local Target and pick it up there!
