Here in Raleigh, North Carolina – I am constantly on the hunt at Earth Fare, searching for healthy foods and new products, that will help me to combat weight gain — or lose weight. I recently stumbled upon one product I love that happens to be 100% vegan and certified organic — Amazing Grass Green Superfood.
Due to the fact that it is pretty appetizing and satisfying, the Amazing Grass Green SuperFood helps me in my personal “battle of the bulge” to combat weight gain. It allows me to receive the proper servings of fruits and vegetables on a daily basis, without ever really feeling hungry.
According to the Amazing Grass website, “nearly 90% of us don’t get enough servings everyday. Amazing Grass Green SuperFood allows you to get the best nutrition anytime of day, everyday. We’ve hand selected the most nutritious vibrant vegetables, cereal grasses, algae, anti-oxidant rich fruits probiotics and immune boosting support herbs and created a delicious tasting powder that can be mixed easily with water.”
Childhood, Food Fantasies & Amazing Grass Green SuperFood
I come from a family that truly loves to eat quality Southern food. While growing up in a household, with a Mother who prepared any delicious butter laden dish my heart desired from scratch — I first began my love affair with food.
As a child, I developed a real “taste” for carbohydrates and all things sweet. In a perfect food fantasy world, I could indulge myself by eating homemade pasta everyday, with a portion of fresh bread on the side, and a tiny salad. For dessert, I would devour something fabulous like strawberry cheesecake. If it sounds bad that is because it is — I know.
In the real world — outside of my food fantasy land, I do not eat carbohydrate rich foods everyday. I limit myself to 1-2 days a week, where I eat anything I want within reason. On a daily basis, I combine a scoop of my Amazing Grass Green SuperFood with organic orange juice. The Green SuperFood is a powder with a slightly sweet taste, and in theory you can mix it with plain water, although I never tried doing it. Occasionally, I buy the Sambazon Organic Juice blends, and I will mix a scoop of the SuperFood powder in with one.
The 8.5 ounce bottle of Amazing Grass provides 30 servings, and costs around $27.99. Is it worth it? In my opinion — yes.
Benefits I Noticed
Increase in Energy. Regardless of what I combine with the powder — I find that after consuming the Green SuperFood, I feel as though I have additional energy. I am also more mentally alert. While I am not a fan of coffee — this is my version of a “Cup of Joe” in the AM.
Appetite Control. I feel full throughout the day which allows me to lose weight or maintain my ideal weight, depending upon my diet. After I stopped consuming the product for two weeks, I noticed I gained around 5 lbs! Needless to say — I quickly returned to the Amazing Grass Green SuperFood — I do not think I am ever going to stop using it. Although I am not asserting that the product will make you lose tons of weight, in my personal situation it controls my usually ridiculous appetite, which is a plus for me.
No Crazy Cravings. I am a firm believer in the fact that by consuming various foods or ingredients, we can control our cravings for things we should avoid. This product allows me to satisfy my “sweet tooth” so it is ideal.
If you are curious as to what is actually in the 100% vegan, Amazing Grass Green Superfood, the product offers an extensive list of quality organic ingredients. A sampling of the ingredients include organic pure acai powder by Sambazon, maca, and the enzyme FOS. The acai powder provides a source of antioxidants, the maca helps with energy and focus, while the FOS aids in digestion. Wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, spinach, broccoli, and cracked cell chlorella are other ingredients that help to naturally detox, nourish and strengthen the body. According to the website for Amazing Grass the product provides the following —
“Naturally balanced powerhouse of Anti-oxidants, B-Vitamins, Beta Carotene, Bioflavonoids, Lycopene, Folic Acid, Dietary Fiber, Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD), and Omega 3, 6 & 9 Essential Fatty Acids.”

By the way — I do not work for this company, own any stock, or know any employees. I really do feel that it is a solid product. It has been extremely effective regarding my dieting, and weight loss efforts. I made sure that I mentioned it to my parents — now they are taking it too.
