Is There a Trick? An Adora Giveaway!

Happy Monday afternoon! Just a quick lunch post, and then another giveaway for one lucky reader!

I was craving vegetables when I woke up because I didn’t really have too many this weekend (unless the veggies on the Chuck E. Cheese pizza count?), so I went with a huge veggie sandwich and a massaged kale salad.

On this sammie:

  • Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • 1 slice RF Swiss Cheese
  • mixed greens
  • tomato
  • sprouts
  • purple bell peppers

SO good. And SO tall!

For the massaged kale salad, I ripped some kale off the stems and washed and dried it thoroughly, and then rubbed (literally, with my hands) 1 tsp of olive oil and some salt into the kale. I added some chickpeas (for extra protein) and gorgonzola (because I love cheese) and it was awesome.

Perfect compliment to the sandwich, and I actually ate the whole salad before I even bit into the sandwich. (That might have had something to do with the intimidation factor of the height of the sandwich)

And now, for another giveaway!

The folks over at Adora sent me two packages of their chocolate calcium supplements to review. We were given some of these at the Healthy Living Summit back in August and they are SO good. I gave two to Wil and after he ate them I told him they were calcium supplements and he asked if there was a trick because they taste so good!

From their website, “Adora™ Calcium in premium chocolate will change the way you think about calcium supplements. If you’ve been choking down calcium pills or chews that are chalky, sticky, or simply too big to swallow, then you are in for a real treat! Adora Calcium is made from all-natural chocolate – not a fake chocolate chew, but real, premium chocolate produced by a chocolate company that’s been in business since 1879. The flavor is rich and creamy with just a hint of sweetness and no bitter aftertaste. Adora will make you Crave Your Calcium™.”

One lucky reader will receive two bags of the supplements – one dark and one milk chocolate. They taste so good you won’t even believe they are supplements!

  1. I prefer milk chocolate for when I want handfuls…but dark chocolate keeps me from eating my weight in chocolate! I think these would be great on top of some yogurt

  2. First off, your lunch looks amazing!! I love kale but hardly ever have it raw, although this sounds like a great way to enjoy it!

    I would love to try the calcium chews. I have osteopenia and have to take calcium supplements and I would love a really good tasting chocolate treat at the same time! I love milk and dark chocolate, but dark is definitely my favorite!

    Great giveaway!

  3. I am lately preferring dark chocolate. It’s more flavorful to me and I need less to satisfy my cravings. I would probably melt these and drizzle them over oatmeal or yogurt!

  4. I love dark chocolate! These would be nice as dessert maybe with some strawberries 🙂

  5. I definitely prefer milk chocolate even though dark is healthier for you. These would go great on top of some ice cream or in a milkshake.

  6. Depending on my mood – I think I prefer milk chocolate usually. My mom actually started working for a chocolate company recently and I love it all! Thanks!

  7. Ohhhh and I joined your FB page! Love the comparison shot! 🙂

  8. I love all kinds of chocolate, but do prefer milk chocolate. I would def put this with some ice cream!! yum!

  21. Heyy, mmm that sandwich looks great, I love tall sarnies 🙂
    I think milk chocolate, I love the stuff and having restricted it for so long I try to eat as much as I can. I was thinking I may put it in my oatmeal as i’m sick of the chewy calcium pills i’m forced to talk (bleh). But then I though i would make them into a sauce and put it on chicken. It may sound wierd but It’s AMAZING 🙂
    Or even mix it with popcorn, the salty sweet taste is fab. Oooo… i’m getting hungry just thinking about it xxx

  43. Ok, I was having this discussion with a friend the other day of which I preferred. Without a doubt it has to be Milk Chocolate. Dark Chocolate just seems too rich, however is great for baking. With the Milk Chocolate, I would have to make some smores smoothies! adding Peanut Butter will just be an added treat.

    I joined your FB fan page!

  44. Milk chocolate for me…I’m not sure what I would do with it to be honest, but you can’t go wrong adding it to oatmeal!
