Amazing Grass Protein Superfood Review

 

Amazing Grass Protein Superfood

I have been using Amazing Grass whole food nutritional powders for a little over three years now and I must say, I am in love! My daily go to protein powder is one of their newly redesigned protein powders, Protein Superfood. For those who have never tried Amazing Grass Protein Superfood, I highly recommend giving it a shot!

About three and a half years ago, I was searching for a protein powder to add to smoothies that not only tasted good, but fit my clean eating criteria and left me feeling… well, amazing! Many of the powders I originally tested out left me with an upset stomach, bloated or simply weighed down and sluggish.

I tried a variety of different products and after no success, I realized many of the “healthy” or “clean” protein powders on the market weren’t actually that great. Many of them were not organic, contained added sugars, animal products, artificial colors and flavors, strange chemicals and preservatives.

Ingredients

Amazing Grass Protein Superfood really impressed me with its ingredients list. It is organic, vegan, raw, non-GMO, dairy free, gluten free, has no refined sugar, is cold processed and kosher. 100% diet approved!!

Protein Superfood is made with seven alkalizing greens including wheat grass, barely grass, alfalfa, spirulina, chlorella, broccoli and spinach. The 20g of plant based protein comes from sources such as peas, chia seeds, quinoa and hemp. A mixture of beets, carrots, sweet potato, goji, acai and banana add to the rich vitamin content.

Protein Superfood VS. Amazing Meal

When I couldn’t find my favorite Amazing Meal protein powder on the shelves at my local Whole Foods, I became a little worried and began to do my research. I found that Protein Superfood is the replacement product for their original Amazing Meal Protein Powder. There is a slight improvement in taste and the consistency is smoother and less chalky. This product puts more emphasis on protein content, whereas Amazing Meal was focused on providing your daily vitamin needs along with added probiotics to aid digestion. I did not notice any difference in the way I felt and my body is usually sensitive to any dietary changes.

I have been consistently impressed by all of the Amazing Grass products I have tried. I like to enjoy my Protein Superfood mixed into a green smoothie, recipe soon to come!!

Amazing Meal Protein Powder: Original Blend

A little over a year and a half ago, I was searching for a protein powder to add to smoothies that not only tasted good, but was diet approved and didn’t have any negative side effects. Many of the powders I tried out before buying Amazing Meal left me feeling bloated, nauseous or resulted in bad gas, which I think is safe to say that no one wants to experience that.

I tried a variety of different products from Vega, RAW Protein (Garden of Life), RAWR Protein and a few others. Many of the “healthy” or “clean” protein powders on the market had added sugars, animal products, chemicals/preservatives and just didn’t taste that great.

Amazing Meal is Organic, vegan, raw, non GMO, dairy free, gluten free, has no refined sugar, is cold processed and kosher. Diet Approved!! They have added probiotics which are great for balancing the good bacteria in your gut. The vitamins and minerals you get from one serving of amazing meal are almost equivalent to your daily needs.

 Amazing Grass, the makers of Amazing Meal, describe their product on their website as “100% whole food plant based nutrition; including 11+ grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per serving.”

I add one or two scoops to my green smoothies every morning and I can’t taste a thing! I feel energized and refreshed after drinking my Amazing Meal smoothies.

Before starting my morning smoothie routine, I had trouble eating in the mornings. I never had much of an appetite. Drinking a tasty green smoothie with Amazing Meal Protein Powder has helped train both my stomach and my brain that I need breakfast. Now, I crave them every morning.

My favorite Amazing Meal Smoothie Recipe:

Green Tropical Smoothie:

2 cups of raw spinach (blended with coconut water)

1 cup of frozen Mango

½ fresh Mango

1 large slice of Pineapple (about 2 cups)

1-2 scoops of Amazing Meal

2-3 pitted dates

Chia & Flax

2 cups of Apple Juice

Ice

Blend and enjoy your smoothie!!
