Gotein Giveaway!!!

In life I'm always a day late and a dollar short, so it only seems natural that I'm one month behind the rest of the blogging world with a Gotein giveaway.

So if you haven't yet heard, Gotein is a powdered protein supplement that has only 100 calories and 24 of the needed essential vitamins and minerals. Gotein comes in three different flavors; chocolate, vanilla, strawberry.

Heres how it works:
  • Drink 1/3 of a standard 16.9 oz water bottle. Add the powder. The less water in the bottle the thicker the drink will be.
  • Swirl so the power doesn't get stuck in the cap, then shake until completely mixed in.
  • Drink and enjoy.
What I like about Gotein:
  • Convenient
  • The chocolate tastes like iced hot chocolate
  • Portable
  • Easy to use
  • Curbed my post-run appetite just enough to let me get in a nice stretching session
What I didn't like about Gotein:
  • That they advertise to use a plastic water bottle? Why not a reusable one? Plastic water bottles aren't very environmentally friendly.
  • If you don't mix it enough, there are chunks. Made that mistake the first time. Protein chunks do not taste yummy.
  • I'm anti supplements. While it was great to be given this opportunity, I don't believe that supplements or processed items offer higher quality vitamins and minerals then natural foods.
So if you haven't yet had your chance to give Gotein a go, NOWS THE TIME!!! To win your own samples of Gotein is easy, just leave one comment below for each:
  • Must be a Chicago Runner Girl follower (mandatory)
  • EXTRA ENTRY: Head on over to Facebook and like Gotein
  • EXTRA ENTRY: Tell me your plans for the 4th of July
Its that simple. Giveaway ends one week from today, July 5th at midnight.

    Thanks for the honest review. I'm more and more concerned and aware of what I'm eating now and looking for more natural supplements to my diet.

  14. I like the Gotein on facebook.

  15. Since my boyfriend will be returning from brazil on Sunday we will just take it easy on the 4th. Maybe get a massage and eat some yummy
    Food. :)

  16. I am now a follower! Also I am not sure what my plans are for the 4th yet. I think my husband and I will stay here in the city.

  17. I am actually afraid of fireworks so, like my dog, I spend the evening of the fourth indoors. But we plan to spend some time outdoors beforehand! Probably gardening and maybe playing in the sprinkler is it's hot.

  18. For July 4th, I'm going to Tappan's pool for a daytime celebration, can't wait!

  19. We went on a family reunion camping trip for 4th of July weekend.
