Shake/Supplement review: Amazing Grass Wheat Grass powder.

I don’t want to call this a shake review because this is not really a shake, but you can add it into shakes if you want. 😉 I love Amazing Grass products and this is no exception. This is pure 100% organic, whole leaf wheat grass powder. One serving of this equals 5-6 serving of veggies and fruits, but I would never use this to replace your veggie servings. Do. Not. Do. That!

If you have ever tried to juice wheat grass, it is a bit of a pain the the behind, you need a special juicer that can slowly extract the juice and clean up can be tough. While drinking freshly juiced grass is preferable, this is a great alternative.

Here are the product highlights from the Amazing Grass website.

  • Increases & sustains energy naturally
  • Detoxifies and cleanses your body
  • High alkalinity helps balance acidic pH levels
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Complete food with enzymes & all essential amino acids
  • Natural source of antioxidants to help repair damaged cells
  • Field grown outdoors through winter
  • Vegan, Gluten Free and RawPer

8 gram serving, Amazing Grass Wheat Grass offers:

  • A naturally balanced source of Phytonutrients & Carotenoids
  • 2x more dietary fiber than an 8 gram serving of oat bran
  • 2x more iron than a 30 gram serving of fresh spinach
  • Excellent source of folic acid, beta carotene & vitamin C

I like to add it to a glass of low sugar lemonade or Yamamotoyama iced green tea. You can also freeze it in ice cube trays and add to smoothies or for parties (which you will get plenty of questions about. lol). I can’t say enough good things about this product. A 30 serving canister runs around $25.00.

Here are some great recipes using Wheat Grass powder:

Shake Review: Jay Robb Egg White Protein

The latest protein shake I decided to try was Jay Robb egg white protein. I’ve heard great reviews on the whey supplement, but I’m trying to limit dairy and would rather not give up my yogurt ration, so I gave Jay Robb’s egg white protein a try.

One scoop contains 120 calories and 24 grams of protein and various amino acids. Jay Robb is purely a protein supplement, so you aren’t going to find added vitamins and minerals here.

It is easily mixed with water in a blender bottle, and has a great chocolate taste. The dowside, for me, is that Jay Robb contains stevia, so the great chocolatey flavor was followed by this sickeningly sweet chemically taste. This was the final time I was giving a stevia product a chance. No more stevia for me, I just can’t take it.

That said, I think that Jay Robb makes a GREAT post workout supplement, if you can handle the taste of stevia.
