Amazing Grass sent over the most amazing products for me to try. Wheat Grass, Berry Green Superfood, Amazing Meals, Amazing Superfood bars, and a big girl Green Monster cup. I am determined to incorporate at least one serving of Amazing Grass products into my daily eats. I’ve always wanted to jump on the green monster train. I guess now is the time. My first green monster consisted of 1 scoop of Amazing Grass Organic Wheat Grass, 1 handful of spinach, 1 cup of Unsweetened Almond Breeze, 1 frozen banana and ice. Blend, blend, blend and then blend some more. The color turned a beautiful green and I was excited to try it out. I could NOT taste the spinach at all, but the wheat grass taste was present. I was kind of hoping that the banana flavor would cover up the taste of wheat grass like it does with the spinach. I braved the taste and chugged it down really fast since I figured the longer I dragged it out, the less cold it would be and I don’t want to imagine what a room temperature green monster would taste like. This simple concoction, roughly 185 calories gave me tons of energy. I was alert and upbeat without having to resort to caffeine. I’m going to have to tweak the ingredients a little bit more to make it more suitable for my taste buds. One scoop of Amazing Grass Organic Wheat Grass is only 35 calories, 0 WW, zero fat, zero cholesterol, 4 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein and is chalk full of vitamins and minerals to help you fuel your day. Vitamin A 80%, Vitamin C 30%, Vitamin K 100%, Riboflavin 35%, Niacin 4%, Vitamin B6 4%, Chlorophyll 42 milligram, Cobalamin (B12) 2%, Calcium 4%, Iron 10%, Iodine 10%, Selenium 10%, Manganese 25%, Sodium 2 milligram, and Potassium 6% (based on a 2,000 calorie diet). Impressed? I am and I really feel the difference in my energy level, especially when I drink it in the morning and mid-afternoon. Amazing Grass agrees with my system really well. But hey, what is wheat grass anyways and what health benefits do I get from it?
