As a (relatively) new mom, I know how much of a struggle it is to take the time for myself throughout the day. In the early weeks and months after my daughter was born, there were some days I would sit down for the evening and realize I had not eaten during the day! I know a lot of moms and dads can relate to this struggle. That’s why I LOVE Evive Nutrition.
About Evive Nutrition
Evive is a Canadian company that was founded in 2015 by a young couple, Claudia Poulin and Dominic Dube.
Claudia and Dominic decided that sharing their passion for healthy eating would guide their professional lives – and boy were they right!
“Ultimately, our purpose is to facilitate your healthy lifestyle so that you feel amazing and have more precious time to do what makes you happy! In other words, our mission is to empower you to get more from life through healthy eating.”
What Makes Evive Unique?
Unlike some of Evive’s competitors, the products you get through Evive are very convenient to use, you don’t even need a blender to prepare these smoothies, and as a mom, I can safely say that that is a definite bonus for me – less dishes I need to clean! All you need to do is take out your smoothie portion, they come in 6 frozen cubes and you can make a half portion (3 cubes) or a full portion (all 6 cubes); leave the cubes at room temperature for roughly 20 minutes; I like this because I can pop out the cubes before I get my daughters breakfast ready and by the time she is eating I can mix up my own breakfast.
Being able to make nutritious blender-free smoothie cubes makes Evive unique.
Not only does Evive carry frozen smoothies that are delivered right to your door, they also have other options for lunch as well. And what I love about the products they carry for lunch, is that you can make them into soups or nutritious bowls adding whatever starch you want from couscous to macaroni! This gives so many different options for breakfast and lunch and they are so easy to prepare!
For the smoothies it is as easy as adding the frozen cubes to your glass, putting in whatever you like for liquid – I personally like to use almond milk – and shaking the cubes and milk together. It is as quick and simple as that! And you can always make a smoothie bowl by add granola, and your favourite whole fruits to the smoothie! I hands down love how versatile these products are!
If you want to enjoy a delicious bowl for lunch all you need to do is pop the cubes into a pot and heat for 4-5 minutes or you can warm it in the microwave in a microwave safe dish for 3-4 minutes and then pour it over a base of your choosing. If you are feeling like some soup, place the cubes in a bowl and add 2/3 cup of boiling water (or liquid of choice).
Evive really takes the guess work out of breakfast and lunch but these bowls could also be a great supper option too. I love how easy the product are to prepare and eat, and I am personally a huge fan of smoothies because they are packed full of nutrition but are easy to make and convenient to consume! Evive smoothies have 18 grams of protein, are plant-based, sugar-free, and delivered straight to your door packed in dry ice so you don’t have to worry about the cubes thawing during the delivery process.
“As a boy mama, I need something that is quick and easy! As a partner of Evive smoothies, Evive gave me free samples to try. Evive is absolutely delicious and so easy to make. The main reason why they are so different from other smoothies is you don’t need a blender to blend the ingredients together. All you do is shake, shake, and shake! There are soooo many different options to try, which is amazing and! they just came out with food! I was lucky enough to try some and let me tell you…it is so delicious and filing. That’s what I absolutely love about their smoothies. You have one and your full.” – Jeannie Parcollet from The Parco’s
