Ideally, a paramount issue behind why most of us don't eat healthy most of the time has A LOT to do with the convenience factor. It's easy for me to tell my clients to make sure majority of their plate at every meal is full of vegetables. Or that they should make it a point to consume at least a pound of vegetables daily. And while the FDA would recommend we consume at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, one specific question lingers:
How on this green earth are we supposed to consume the magnanimous amount, yet SUPER beneficial veggies consistently on a daily basis?
People, AC Art Of Food has found the answer!
Visiting family a couple of weeks ago, I noticed in my sister-in-love's fridge, a container of powdered super greens. She explained to me how her and her hubby drink this mixed in water, juice, or a smoothie, every morning and it made them feel amazing! Now, don't get me wrong, I have seen and performed research on various powdered greens before and have concluded that collectively they serve a great purpose of health and convenience...all in one scoop!
Now fast forward to this week and I'm perusing the shelves of Walgreen's and stumble upon Amazing Grass' product line of advantageous, alkaline potent, easy to consume greens! I mean think about it, the ease of simply scooping all these healthFUL antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and nutrients into a single glass of at least 8oz. of water and you're getting a huge jumpstart of fruits and veggies for the day! Now you will still need to consume as many fruits and veggies that you can in a day, this product and other dehydrated brands simply provide a good boost to get you started.
There are a few flavor options to choose from. While I chose the 'lemon-lime' flavor, I add my scoop to a 32oz of water to mask the sweetness from tye stevia. This is primarily due to me not particularly caring for the taste of stevia, even though this naturally sweet green is loaded with nutrients and health benefits, combined with the lemon-lime flavor does not my palate please. However, the original is quite refreshing! I did also notice online a watermelon flavor that I can't wait to order next, and just in time for the summer!
Because I fast intermittently, I drink my 25 calorie serving Amazing Greens and a couple cups of green tea or black coffee in the morning and I'm good up until I eat lunch around noon. However, I would not recommend my clients consume this solely as their meal because of the really low calorie content, unless participating in IF. Ideally I would pair this green beverage with a small meal, or the powder mixed into a smoothie or meal replacement shake.
On the contrary of me praising this product, I have read reviews concerning one of the popular energy-boosting ingredient, Yerba Mate. While there has been some buzz regarding large amounts consumed of this antioxidant rich nutrient may have ties with mouth and esophagus cancer, the small amount included in Amazing Greens does not seemingly pose a threat.
So don't take my word for it, go out and grab a container for yourself! Try it and let me know how it works for you!
cheers to convenient sipping...for your health!
Remember, SHARING is caring!
