As you guys know, I'm a veggie. If I could sit around and pig out on cauliflower, carrots, kale, broccoli and blueberries all day long - well - I would do that! My digestive system says that I can't. But I have found a organic, raw, vegan supplement that packs the punch of all my faves!
Meet Amazing Meal from Amazing Grass!I must say - in no way am I endorsed by Amazing Grass; I'm just willing to give an enthusiastic review when I find something that I really love. I stumbled upon Amazing Meal while browsing the super fun health section at my local and wonderful Whole Foods. I picked up a couple of their individual packets, so I could try all four flavors (Original, Vanilla Chai Infusion, Pomegranate Mango Infusion, Chocolate Infusion.)
I love them all! I think the Vanilla Chai Infusion is probably my favorite, just because I blend it into my breakfast and post-run banana smoothies. I found that all of the flavors have a very mild, earthiness - it tastes like all the green stuff that's in it. I like that. Some people get turned off when they can detect a supplement or when it does not taste like a McDonald's shake, but I am not one of those people. I like the subtle reminder that all of the colorful things from the ground are actually in the supplement. I also use half of the amount they suggest, just to keep the texture of my smoothie from becoming too chalky or grainy.
So, what superfoods are found in Amazing Meal? It boasts an impressive resume; have a look for yourself!
See! Awesome stuff. Don't get me wrong - I agree that the best way to get the nutrients that we need is to eat the things that have them. Sometimes a marathon runner does not have the time, money or energy to eat all of the whole foods that would provide these health benefits and nutrients.
