Nothing is more powerful for your diet than adding in more greens. That’s why I’ve partnered with Amazing Grass® Green Superfood® on this sponsored content to introduce you to this incredible product that’s impacted my personal nutrition in such a positive way.

Combine that with the convenience, portability (this canister comes with a scoop) and versatility of Amazing Grass® Green Superfood® Original, and you’ve got a kitchen staple.

I personally love adding a scoop of Amazing Grass to my post workout protein shake. This increases the alkalinity of my shake, energizes me and leaves me feeling nourished. Not to mention that it tastes good! (which is hard to come by in a greens powder).

If you are feeling like you do not get enough veggies in your diet, Amazing Grass is a simple and convenient way to add greens to your daily routine. It provides you with the whole food nutrition your body craves in a tasteful powder that’s easy to tote around with you. I keep a container in my gym backpack for some quick nutrition on-the-go. Doing this has equipped me with nutritious fuel when I didn’t have access to a healthy meal.

Check out the rad ingredients:

-Amazing Grass Green Food Blend: Organic Wheat Grass, Organic Barley Grass, Organic Alfalfa, Organic Spinach, Organic Spirulina, Organic Chlorella (cracked cell wall), Organic Broccoli

-Amazing Grass Antioxidant Blend: Organic Rose Hips, Organic Pineapple, Organic Carrot, Acerola Cherry Extract, Green Tea Extract, Organic Acai, Organic Beet, Raspberry, Organic Maca

-EFA Fiber Blend: Organic Flax Seed, Apple Pectin

-Digestive Enzyme & Active Culture Pre/Probiotic Blend: F.O.S. (Fructooligosaccharide from Chicory Root and Probiotic Enzyme Blend (Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Protease (Aspergillus oryzae), Amylase (Aspergillus oryzae), Lipase (Aspergillus niger), Lactase (Aspergillus oryzae), Cellulase (Trichoderma reesei))

-Other ingredients: Peppermint and Silica

Chock full of organic greens, nutrient-dense vegetables, fruits and superfoods, this product gives you:

-Boosted immunity

-Enhanced digestion

-Better detoxification

-Renewed energy

-Improved overall wellness

All it takes is one scoop added into a glass of water, your favorite juice, in a smoothie or even baked into delicious healthy recipes. The possibilities are truly endless. If I’m in the kitchen, I love using Amazing Grass in my smoothie bowls, keto smoothies, dressing and even protein pancakes! Let your imagination run wild when using it. Anytime you need more nutrition (we pretty much all do–all the time!) in your meal, you can look to this high-quality product.

I am SO excited that Sam’s Club is now carrying Amazing Grass (45 Serving ARV $21.98). It’s unreal that you can get ahold of such a high quality, organic, Non-GMO, gluten-free product while you’re shopping for your other household staples.

Consuming this product daily helps me insure that I am optimizing my body’s detoxification pathways and keeping my energy high (no caffeine needed).

Between May 10 – June 4, Sam’s Club is offering a $4.00 savings on every tub of Amazing Grass Green Superfood Original in store and online! Also–you can expect an in-store demo on May 19th.

I received product and compensation from Amazing Grass® Green Superfood ® Original at Sam’s Club as part of a sponsored program. All opinions are my own.

Amazing Grass Greens Holiday Immunity Boost Review

This is a review of Amazing Grass’s Greens powders that are ideal for boosting your immunity over the holidays.

Amazing Grass Immunity Boosters

During this time of year, isn’t it funny how even the healthiest of us may get the sniffles or feel a little under the weather at times? It’s frustrating to get sick. Luckily, there’s a whole lot in your hands as far as what you can do to prepare.

Enter: Amazing Grass.

This wonderful, quality-focused brand has been on my radar & blogging atmosphere for several years now–& for good reason. They produce organic, raw, nutrient-packed green superfoods that are pure, nourishing and very convenient to add to a shaker bottle or blend into a smoothie (just a few of the uses!).

The coolest thing about using these products to help boost that holiday (well, all-year round, really!) immunity is that they are so practical for everyday use. Just one serving a day can give you a sufficient boost to keep your nutrient intake high to fend off sickness & to avoid that winter fog that can come over too many instances of indulgence.

Most of these products are available to purchase in so many local health food stores and can also be found online. They make it really easy for you to reap the benefits.

__________________________

Here’s a little run down on two of their biggest immunity-targeting blends:

Green SuperFood Tangerine Immunity Defense – consists of six potent ingredients, each individually known for having immunity support benefits, including Organic Proprietary Mushroom Blend, Organic Olive Leaf, Organic Elderberry, Organic Ginger Root, Organic Astragalus and Andrographis.

  • The Vitamin C comes from ascorbic acid and Acerola Cherry Extract. 1000mg of Vitamin C is the same amount found in one serving of Emergen-C. The Vitamin C level in Immunity Tangerine is also equivalent to the amount in approximately 40 whole tangerines.

Green SuperFood Alkalize & Detox – specifically designed to simultaneously help the body achieve ideal pH levels while ridding it of toxins to allow for optimal function and organ restoration.

  • Containing over 20 different alkalizing and detoxifying agents including beet root, parsley, turmeric and apple pectin, each ingredient in Alkalize & Detox is specifically formulated to alkalize by bringing the body to a more natural pH balance, while simultaneously detoxing by cleansing tissues of toxins and pollutants.

Looking for that supplement that can give you that extra pep in your step? Check out Amazing Grass. Here’s how you can find them:

Conscious Box: Plant-Based Sample Box Review

Conscious Box: Plant Based

Overall Rating: 3 Stars

Pick up full-size favorites at deep discounts. It’s that simple. Conscious Box makes living healthy easier than ever.”

______________________________

My Thoughts:

I discovered Conscious Box when I was still a college student, finishing up my bachelor’s degree in North Texas. At the time, Consciouc Box provides an excellent means for me to become acquainted with a big range of natural and organic beauty, skin and nutrition products. I have always been happy with & impressed by the variety in their boxes. In one box, you may get a deodorant sample and a seaweed bar. Heck, you could really go crazy and apply your deodorant while eating the seaweed bar! 🙂 The only thing I’ve noticed that I’d improve is that not all products inclosed are organic. They seem to be varying in quality as far as ingredients used.

Conscious Box sent me this plant-based version of their box for me to take a look at and try. My favorites in the bundle are the Chickpeas made by Saffron Road, Green Superfood Bar made by Amazing Grass &  the Bamboo Towels made by NaturezWay. I loved the idea of the Tiny Tea, but couldnt dive deeper ingredient-wise on their website because the info was hard to locate (that’s a instant turn-off for me! I dig transparency). The Back to Nature juice would be more appealing if it was not from concentrate, unpasteurized (requiring refridgetation) and contained organic ingredients. I really wanted to love the Vaska detergent–I checked out their website and saw this:

“Made from plant based surfactants and essential oils. NO nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), NO chlorine, NO phosphates, NO optical brighteners, NO animal products, NO EPA priority pollutants, NO dyes, and NO chemical thickeners.

Water/Aqua, Alcohols C9-11 Ethoxylated, Alkyl Polyglucoside, Surfactant Copolymer, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Potassium Cocoate, Fragrance/Parfum, Methylchlorisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone.”

While I appreciate that they do not use several harsh chemicals, I am apprehensive about the hard-to0-pronounce ingredients. Since I make my own very simple deterent at home with three ingredients, reading that ingredient list was not appealing to me. the lavender provided my clothes a pleasant aroma, though!

As I predicted, I was impressed with the variety in this Conscious Box, but would just ask for better in regards to quality of the products. I strive for the best of the best!

My Thoughts:

This post will be brief and to the point, as I’ve review Amazing Grass products several times before and believe they are one of the highest quality lines of plant-based supplements and whole food sourced products available.

These greens packets (the Tangerine Immunity and Watermelon Energy) are my favorite flavors that Amazing Grass has come out with yet. The tangerine and watermelon flavors, respectively, do such a great job of masking the robust, greeny flavor. As always, these greens are loaded with organic ingredients and are incredibly nutrient rich. I love to mix them with water in a blender bottle and consume them pre or post workout. They’re not too heavy in your stomach like some protein shakes can be. I like that the Watermelon Energy contains a small amount of caffeine, which provides you with a little boost if you choose to consume it like I do, around workout time. It’s always a great idea to eat foods that boost and maintain a strong wall of immunity. Thus, I love that the Tangerine Immunity contains immune boosting antioxidants from plant sources.

As of late, I have been incorporating more organic whey protein than any other kind. But, I understand that whey is not comparable with vegan diets, hence Amazing Grass has smartly created a product (using plant based proteins) that will satisfying vegans and most meat eaters, alike. I really love the idea of getting a serving of greens and protein in one healthful, good-tasting packet–it’s a very unique product. In these Greens and Protein blends, Amazing Grass uses brown rice protein, hemp protein, quinoa protein and pumpkin seed protein. My assumption is that this combination is used to form a complete amino acid profile, making these proteins more digestible and bioavailable to the body. The only one of these four that I take issue with is the brown rice protein, as I aim to steer clear of grains (most of the time) and grain-derived proteins. But, I love the use of hemp, quinoa and pumpkin seed proteins. The Vanilla Spice is my favorite flavor of the two and I like it best with a half & half mixture of water and coconut milk in the bottle that’s pictured–it does a great job of breaking up the clumps. Any blender bottle will work. The Chocolate flavor is enjoyable, too, and boasts a similar nutritional profile to the Vanilla Spice blend.
