Today I’m finally introducing you to my newest love from Amazing Grass, the Green Superfood Watermelon Energy. When I try out new products, I like to give myself at least 4-6 weeks to really see if they affect me or benefit my life in some way, before sharing a full review. I’ve actually been using Amazing Grass products for 3-4 months now and I couldn’t wait any longer to introduce you all to their incredible brand! Is it weird I get excited talking about products I love?
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve shared a review. To be honest, I have so many I really want to share too. I’m always asked for recommendations on the best vegan products and cruelty-free brands. Due to the nature of my blog, I usually keep it centered about food. However, I’m interested in branching out so long as it’s in the realm of eco-friendly vegan products that can benefit others. So definitely expect more reviews, and please feel free to reach out to me if you’re wanting to know more about a particular product. The greener, the better!
I’m sure most of us could use an extra boost of energy, I know I can on busy work days and especially so during the hotter months. It’s easy to fizzle out and I have no shame in admitting to using and in the past abusing caffeine as a remedy. Since moving away from coffee, more on that in an upcoming post, I’ve researched more natural alternatives to fuel me throughout the days when I’m feeling sluggish. Ones that aren’t acidic or high in caffeine. I can’t believe I’ve found a natural alternative that truly works for me!
Amazing Grass offers a variety of superfood powders that range in flavor and nutritional benefit, from bars to natural energy supplements. When you hear energy, you might be weary as to what it actually contains. I can assure you it’s not full of chemicals or stimulants that jack up your heart rate and cause you to crash hours later. All of their products are packed full of greens, to fuel your body naturally without any negative side effects. Unlike those energy shots that people seem to be obsessed with.
The Green Superfood Watermelon Energy is blend of greens, fruits, veggies, grasses, digestive enzymes and probiotics. Plant-based caffeine to naturally fuel your body, with the added benefit of increased alkalinity and digestion. Speaking from personal experience, gut health is the most important part of eating well and living happily. This year I’ve focused more on probiotics and my digestion has never been this efficient. You can tell a lot by the frequency at which you use the bathroom. For me it’s important to stay hydrated, at least a gallon of water a day and consume foods rich in fiber, high in carbs and low in fat. That’s when I truly feel my best and my body is running properly.
Most mornings I start my day with Watermelon Energy, 1 scoop in about 8 ounces of cold, filtered water. It’s actually delicious and I have no issue drinking it as is. Which is hard to find, most powders don’t dissolve well or taste too green. Coming from someone that hates overly green tasting drinks, this is perfection and the only way I’ve been able to stomach excess greens. Despite it’s deep color, I promise it’s delicious!
So what exactly is in this powder? The base is the Amazing Grass Green Food Blend, which contains: Organic Wheat Grass, Organic Barley Grass, Organic Alfalfa, Organic Spinach, Organic Spirulina, Organic Chlorella and Organic Broccoli. From there you also have the Energy Blend (Organic Yerba Mate & Matcha Green Tea), the Antioxidant Blend (Organic Rose Hips, Organic Pineapple, Organic Carrot, Acerola Cherry, Green Tea, Organic Maca, Organic Acai, Organic Beet & Raspberry), the Fiber Blend (Organic Flax Seed Powder & Apple Pectin Fiber), and the final blend being the Digestive Enzyme & Active Culture Pre/Probiotic Blend. As well as stevia and watermelon juice powder. You can check out the full list of ingredients here.
Yeah. That’s a lot all in one powder, I told you it was amazing and packed full of plant-based fuel!
The most important part is that I’m comfortable with the ingredients and I truly feel it works for me. I transitioned away from coffee due to it’s harsh effects on my body. Now that I’ve found a milder alternative to pump up my energy, I’m able to focus on tasks and accomplish more each day. This is my experience with using it, I can’t say the same for you.
