My Visit To Chicago With NOW Foods

This post was sponsored by NOW as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

now food eventI was so excited to get the opportunity to head to Chicago with Influence Central to visit NOW Foods. NOW’s extensive line of more than 900 nutritional supplements offers a quality product to meet your health and wellness goals all at a great value. I felt that right away when we got to experience the brand of ourselves. fried tofu To start off the trip we did an iron chef challenge where everyone broke into teams and we used different products to create a final meal. We create a fried tofu and grilled vegetables dish. I personally am a big fan of tofu so I liked that we got to use an ingredient that was familiar to me. We used the Now Foods Q Cup which I personally enjoyed a lot. A flavorful cup of quoin that’s easy to take anywhere on the go. now blog eventI started working out with a personal trainer earlier in the year so I was excited to get to learn ore about the NOW Sports product lineup. I like to workout and take dance fitness classes so I generally like a pre-workout that products me a little extra energy. Protein is also essential as I’m trying to reach some weight goals and getting leaner. The plant based protein is great for me because I am also vegetarian. I don’t like to eat in the morning but I do workout so I need something that’s quick and easy like a protein shake.  My trainer suggested I use a pea protein and with Now Foods you get 22g of filling protein with only 130 calories. Since I’m trying to stick to strict calorie limits I like that there’s not a lot of carbs or added calories. Plus it actually tastes great and fits in well with my lifestyle. now sports productsWe got to take a PIYO class in the morning before learning about Now Foods extensive quality essential oils. I love dance fitness because it combines music and movement. PIYO did that and added in elements of yoga which I also love. Building balance and flexibility is also a goal of mine so I loved trying the new classes.  So this was a highlight of the trip. piyo classWe also then took a tour where we got to learn all about the quality and time that goes into each of the NOW products. We got to learn about all the testing that goes into making sure their products are safe. You’re really getting a quality product at the best possible price and I felt that from every moment I was able to spend interacting with the brand. I really liked that they believe in clean foods and that they want to empower their customers to live the best possible lives. I know the dedication that having health and fitness goals take and I respect a company that values that. now foods plant tour
