I received a box of baking mix and several packets of Wai Drink Mixes for review. Thank you Silver Fern Brand!
Silver Fern Brand is an online health store that “desires to change the world of health and nutrition.” I tried two of their products, Double Chocolate Brownie Baking mix and the Wai Drink Mixes.
So, first of all, I haven’t mentioned this before because despite having a blog I’m a very private person. 🙂 But, I’ve been cutting out carbs pretty much all of January.
And I lost weight.
5lbs in the first 2 weeks!
I’m motivated now because I know from previous experience, exercise and the right diet can change my body in an amazing way. I am a very loooonnng way away from my goal weight. But, I’m excited to keep on going.
And I was so excited to come across the Double Chocolate Brownie Baking mix, with only 2 net carbs per serving! Because. I. Love. Chocolate. And I need low carb options for chocolatey goodness.
Make sure you read the directions carefully. All ingredients need to be room temperature. I almost missed that!
The batter for these brownies is super thick. It makes you think you need to add water. DO NOT add water.
I also should have hidden the brownies from my kids.
Verdict: These brownies tasted good. My kids had no idea they were low carb and they filled my sweet tooth craving.
Be sure to check out all of the baking mixes on the Silver Fern Brand site. They all look good!
On to the Wai Drink Mixes….
The Wai Drink Mix box comes with 6 packets and you dissolve them into water.
I already drink over 90 ounces of water a day. Anyone else get super thirsty on a low carb diet?
These drink mixes were a nice addition of flavor into my daily water. My favorite mix was Pina Colada. Oh! So, so good!
These drink mixes are healthy for you! They contain prebiotic and probiotics. Here’s some info from the Silver Fern Brand site:
- Encourages healthy fat metabolism
- Converts fiber into fat busting compounds known as short-chain fatty acids
- Potent immune stimulator
- Supports healthy digestion
- 5 billion CFU probiotic blend
- Ability to produce 12 strong antibiotics to fight opportunistic and harmful bacteria
- 100% survivability
- Reduces hunger
- Reduces gas and bloating
- Six tantalizing flavors
- No added sugar
I liked the flavoring so much I wondered how many I could drink a day. After reading the Probiotic Weight Loss plan, I learned the recommendation is 1 to 2 per day.
Make sure to mix into 32 ounces of water. Otherwise, it may taste way too sweet.
I like that I can incorporate prebiotics and probiotics into my water and my kids love the taste.
