I was so excited to see a big package of Amazing Grass on my doorstep last night:
I’m not going to lie — the best part about blogging is getting to test out products. But, the Amazing Grass line is something I would actually buy myself.
Why am I so crazy about this product? Well, it’s essentially my GREEN MONSTERS in powder form, which is awesome for a busy gal like myself. Plus, it’s organic, raw, gluten-free, vegan, soy-free, and dairy-free. Basically, it tastes like grass (hence the name!), but the nutritionals are outstanding.
Now, I must admit that I can see a not-so-health-nutty person being kind of freaked out by Amazing Grass (taste, texture, and color is truly like grass), but I loved it. What a healthy way to start my morning!
I mixed the Amazing Grass with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk. As the main part of breakfast, I heated up a whole wheat waffle I made and froze this weekend.
And, I topped it with Vanilla Chobani and blueberries. This was such a satisfying breakfast.
Guess what? My boss said I could leave work a little early today because I’ve been working so hard! 🙂 So, I didn’t do my strength routine this AM because I’ll have time for the gym in the afternoon! YAY!
Did you know food scientists refer to the typical American way of eating as SAD –the Standard American Diet? I think they are sad because they miss out on all the fun stuff like Amazing Grass! 🙂What’s the one "healthy" food you eat that would probably freak out most Americans?
