Amazing Grass Green Superfood

I'm a smoothie junkie.  Always have been, always will be.  Anybody who was friends with me in college knows that I singlehandedly could have kept the local Tropical Smoothie Cafe in business.

And no doubt, smoothies are good for you.  Well, usually.  If your adding a lot of sugar and sweets to your smoothies, you might not be getting many nutrients.  I know I had to revamp and do a double take with my smoothies since having Jace, as I found that he could not tolerate both dairy and avocado, as he would get very gassy.  When I tried to reintroduce dairy into my diet a couple weeks ago, I found that he was no longer gassy, but would get sporadic eczema-like rashes on his back, elbows, and shoulders.  So the dairy was back out ;o(

It has been a great opportunity all along, especially since going paleo almost 2 years ago, to really make my smoothies and food choices as nutrient-dense as possible.  That is why I loved the products sent to me by Amazing Grass.

Amazing Grass Green Superfood is a powerful blend of nutrient-dense organic greens and antioxidant rich super foods in convenient powder form.  I love how just one serving provides a powerful blend of whole food nutrition that can support my whole family's overall health, immunity and energy levels.  In addition, the alkalizing greens from Amazing Grass help balance pH levels and naturally aid digestion.

Like all the foods and ingredients I include in my smoothies, Amazing Grass products are organic, non-Gmo, vegan and gluten free.  I was given an opportunity to try most of their ten flavors, which includes: Original, Berry, Chocolate Infusion, Energy Lemon Lime, Energy Watermelon, ORAC Antioxidant Boost, Orange Dream, Pineapple Lemongrass, Tangerine Immunity Defense, and Alkalize & Detox.  I found that not only could I use these products as a great add-in for my smoothies, but they went along great with other food choices too!  I was able to use the Amazing Grass ingredients in making my gluten-free pancakes and oatmeal more nutritious too!

Another great perk about Amazing Grass is that they have an individual kids line that specifically addresses children getting all their daily servings of fruits and vegetables in a convenient drink powder.  Check out www.amazinggrass.com and their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/greensuperfood?fref=ts , where you can get a free sample of their product to try!

Here are some pics of the fun smoothies and meals I made using Amazing Grass: 



ORAC means oxygen radical absorbance capacity, and it is a great indicator of a product's antioxidant capacity.  Since one serving of broccoli has 900 ORAC, and one serving of carrots has 201, 40,000 ORAC in Amazing Grass is pretty darn good!


Jace loves helping mommy make breakfast!

Using Orange Dreamsicle to add to my lactation breakfast smoothie


Adding berry flavor to my gluten-free rolled oats!


Ignore the color- both my husband and I loved the taste of these oats!


Making another lactation smoothie to snack on...this time with Chocolate infusion.  A hint of chocolate goes a long way!


This smoothie has Amazing Grass Chocolate Infusion, gluten-free rolled oats, almond milk, pumpkin, almond butter and one banana...Yumm!
