Survival Bros vlogs about getting freebies around town by asking.  This new HD video was filmed at Country Village in Longview, Washington.  You’d be surprised how much free stuff you can acquire by requesting health food samples at local stores in person.  I’m a regular customer, so I can get complementary products in trial sizes, without purchasing a single item.  Plus, I ask nicely, and am very grateful for the edible endowments.  After all, they do call me Cameron Consumption.  I’ve got this survival system down to an Art form.  Thanks for watching.

Comment on the video on YouTube or below once you have completed this #survivalbros Challenge.

I also tried a marijuana CBD spray inside this Washington State establishment!

Survival Bros asks for free food samples at Natural Grocers in Eugene, Oregon while on a roadtrip.  I scored four packets of organic plant based protein drinks, and Non-GMO oatmeal.  Check out the freebie haul.  Get free calories for yourself by asking to try things at every store you go to.  It’s not begging.  The shops either have product to get rid of for promotional use, or not.  All of the products seen in this new Vlog are NOT FOR RESALE!  If scavengers like me do not request the trials, they could go home with a hungry employee, or even worse…EXPIRE!  Nothing is worse than wasting a calorie.  

More fun videos coming.  PLEASE SUBSCRIBE on YouTube, or by email on the blog here.  Watch our other adventures on the HD video page!  Comments are appreciated.  Visit #survivalbros again soon.

I made the best superfood smoothie today for my friends and I. I used a base of Silk organic peach mango fruit juice with protein, and dairy-free vanilla almond milk. Then I tossed in a mix of frozen mangos, pineapple, strawberries, and a non-GMO banana. For an extra boost I added maca. It’s a Peruvian root that increases stamina. It’s my favorite supplement. Finally, I put in a scoop and a half of Sunwarrior vanilla rice protein powder!

I juice or make super smoothies nearly every day. It gives me extra energy to do whatever, from the dishes to writing. Drinks like this are a meal replacement for me. I usually have about 32 ounces, so I’m full. Smoothies are absorbed almost instantly in my body, and they are easy to process, unlike meat. I couldn’t ask for more, but if I was to add another supplement, it would be wheatgrass powder, or Barleans Greens. Time to finish my second glass. I drank the first so fast I thought my brain was going to freeze permanently. Get crazy with your own smoothies. Cheers!

Survival Bros juices! And we love it. If you haven’t had fresh, raw, fruit and veggie juice, then you’re are missing out. In this blog, SB shows you the power of juicing. If you want, make a drink, then read on. I’m sipping a cucumber, carrot, celery blend as I write.

I got the Jack Lalanne Power Juicer two years back. Since then, every time I need more energy, I look to juicing. Sure caffeine and other stimulants can give you a boost, but fresh juice is different. It gives me energy, and mental clarity. It’s electric, and alive. I feel better immediately after drinking a large glass. Sometimes I pound 72 ounces for a complete meal. Try mixing protein, wheat grass, or maca powder in for even more power! Play around with mixing supplements and juice.

If you’ve never juiced before, don’t be scared. You probably won’t have to hangout near the bathroom either, like some people think. Juicing is a natural, and easy way to detox, and even super hydrate. I typically juice before setting out on a long adventure. Coconut water is another excellent hydrator.

Freshly extracted juice is best consumed within 24 hours, but it’s OK if refrigerated up to three days in a sealed container. Hippies like us at Survival Bros also love that it hasn’t been pasteurized. Heat destroys bacteria, molds, and unwanted micro-organisms that MIGHT be hiding in the juice, but all those raw vitamins, minerals, and enzymes are likely lost too. Think for yourself. I’ve never heard of anybody getting hurt juicing.

Juice is healing. Go on a three day juice feast and tell me you don’t look and feel better. Juicing gives you vitality. The more you juice, the more you glow. Your skin will look better, and people will notice. No we aren’t selling juicers, but we do want you to be healthy. If you can’t afford a new juicer, then regularly visit a shop or health food store that serves fresh juice. You can also buy a manual, citrus juicer for under $10. Next to practicing yoga, juicing is probably the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. You won’t regret investing in a juicer. There are plenty of books on the topic too, so don’t be intimidated to start your practice. The documentary, “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” by Joe Cross is worth watching also.

Another juice I really enjoy is simply: beets, lemon, ginger, and green apples! Let’s hear your juicing journey. Comment here or leave a recipe for others. Best wishes from the bunker.
