I have been SOOOO excited about this post for weeks! The idea came to me a while ago and I started making plans to make this a super fun challenge for you guys and myself. Next Sunday (July 1st) all the fun starts!
Here’s the deal…
For the whole month of July I’m challenging myself to one smoothie a day – and I’m challenging you to join in with me! All you have to do is tweet me pictures of your smoothies!
Come on! Who wouldn’t want to enjoy a colourful smoothie like this every day?! But that’s not all, because there are prizes!
There’s going to be some serious fun for you guys because the amazing folks at Vega are giving away some goodies…
How about 5 pouches of their new Energizing Smoothie line for a grand prize?
I am so excited about their new line – it’s really amazing stuff (review coming later!).
Also, every week, one random participant will win one of those smoothie pouches of their choice – is that not cool?!
Strawesome has offered one of the contest winners one of their “Artist’s Choice” straws. I love the idea of reusable glass straws for my smoothies and am so glad they want to be a part of this!
There will also be a prize of the amazing BlenderBottle for on of you participants too! Wahoo…so much good swag going on!
Why I’m Excited…
- I need more fruits and veggies in my life
- I want to lose 5 vanity pounds – you know, the pounds you don’t need to lose, but would feel better about having gone – I will probably end up having my daily smoothie as a meal replacement
- Smoothies are the most delicious thing in this hot, gorgeous summer weather
- I haven’t eaten as healthy as I would like this June (traveling, social outings, family events, ect) and smoothies are a great way to clean up your diet
So how do you join in on the fun?
First of all, make sure to comment below and let me know if you’re planning on joining the challenge! This will make you eligible to win the weekly prize!
From there, it’s all about scoring points. Whoever gets the most points will win the grand prize and next will win second…
You will take a picture (with your phone/Instagram/camera) and tweet your smoothie to me (@colourfulpalate) using the hashtag #colourfulsmoothie – keep in mind I can’t track you if you forget to add the hashtag (NOTE: if you don’t have twitter you can email your photo to me – I don’t want to leave anybody out! It’s email@example.com)
Here’s how the scoring system works: (and don’t worry, I’ll be tracking all your points!)
-1 point for every smoothie you tweet/email
-3 points for telling your friends about the challenge on twitter (remember to use the hashtag #colourfulpalate) - up to 3x
-3 points every time you make one of my smoothies (mention it when you tweet your photo in)
-4 points for sharing about the challenge on your blog/site AND adding the image below – you must link to me so I’ll know to count your points
-5 points for having a smoothie EVERY DAY for the month of July!
The challenge will be over on July 31st – and the winners will be announced on the 2nd of August. The weekly prizes will be announced throughout the challenge. It’s open to US and Canada.
Here’s something to help you get started:
A free Vega One sample from Vega (while available) – get yours here!
If you have any questions – you can ask me on Facebook page or shoot me an email at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
SO are you up for the challenge?! What are you goals? I can’t wait to start and do it with you all!
