The New Protein Superfood: #FeelAmazingEveryDay (Giveaway)
Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to present to you a product that does everything in one perfect scoop. You get your 7 alkalizing greens (wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, chlorella, broccoli, and spinach), your plant-based protein, and a healthy serving of your fruits and vegetables. It seems like a lot. And it is! But we aren’t pulling your leg. Amazing Grass dug deep and produced this great product for the public. It’s your daily nutrition all-in-one package. At Hungry and Fit, we try new products all the time. Some are hits and most are misses. I was a little nervous about this one. All this stuff in just one scoop? Won’t it be gross? Spoiler alert: it’s not!
As you know (and probably why you follow us), we lead a very active lifestyle. With that lifestyle, we need good fuel. Not just anything-off-the-shelf fuel, but products that will keep us running and going. A big part of that is having the right protein and nutrients. Especially for me, a vegetarian, every gram of protein I can get is crucial. Let’s get down to the nutrients of this product:
- 190 calories per scoop
- 7g fat
- 11g carb (4g sugar)
- 20g protein
Hallelujah to protein! I often workout in the mornings. After said workout, I need even more fuel for a breakfast than I normally would. Honestly, I usually don’t have protein shakes (I’m talking in a blender bottle mixed together with water or milk) first thing in the morning because I have a sensitive stomach. I will feel a little nauseous or have some tummy pain. However, I really want to since it’s such a great punch of protein for the morning, plus I need something to sustain me after a workout. This powder seemed a little different to me, maybe because it’s not just strictly protein; it has plenty of other vitamins and goodies packed in. So I tried it, shaken up with milk. I also put it in the beautiful mason jar and glass straw they provided me which was just too much fun to use! And guess what! No stomach ache, no nauseous. Just happy muscles recently worked from my exercise.
I use the Amazing Grass Protein Superfood Chocolate Peanut Butter edition. It is actually super tasty. Honestly, it kind of tastes and smells like it has coffee in it, but actually doesn’t contain any. The flavor really makes it for me and there other flavors to choose from as well. It tastes like a wonderful mix of peanut butter, chocolate, and coffee. The only qualm I have about the product that it can get a little thick by the last sip. However, if you just mix it up a bit more, it smooths out just fine.
This kind of Superfood drink is essential. It’s essential that it can be packed in cup or glass in one hand that you can guzzle your daily nutrition out of. It’s not a huge salad bowl or anything like that. It’s an all-in-one scoop that will keep you vibrant for the rest of the day. I would say that this type of product is crucial for someone who leads (or is attempting to lead) a healthy, active lifestyle.
