Easy to be SuperGreen

Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a Green Superfood bar…

I am always looking for treats and snacks that are easy to bring with me on the go, to the dog park, shopping or traveling. I get hungry and my blood sugar drops and before you know it, I become grumpy and growly and sweaty. And I do not eat enough greens in my diet. I have also been seeking how I can eat my greens without the yucky taste.  These new Green Superfood bars hit all the right notes… yummy tasting, easy to carry, healthy and flavorful without all the junk of a candy bar. I have never had green foods taste this good. In fact, I couldn’t even taste the green foods. Now that is how I like them. Check out the ingredients below…(Note: not recommended for dogs due to chocolate in the bars)…

The new Green SuperFood Chocolate Chip Coconut whole food energy bar features organic nuts and dates and is sweetened with organic Palm Nectar. It has 240 calories, 5 grams of protein, 10 grams of healthy omega fats, 13 grams of sugar and 36 grams of carbohydrates.  In addition to the Amazing Grass Green SuperFood blend, it also contains the following organic ingredients:  Rolled Oats; Brown Rice Syrup; Coconut; Rice Crisps; Almonds; Dates; Peanuts; and Peanut Butter.

For the majority of people, stress and consumption of unhealthy processed foods can create an acidic imbalance in the blood that, among other problems, can cause the body to store water and build up fat in the arteries (cholesterol) as protection from acidic blood.  The rich chlorophyll content and high alkalinity of Amazing Grass Green SuperFood helps to combat acidity and restore blood to the optimal pH level.  It also promotes improved circulation, digestion and regular elimination.

The Amazing Grass Green SuperFood blend is a unique and potent combination of nature’s most nourishing, cleansing and rebuilding green superfoods including more than 70% certified organic ingredients and an enhanced digestive enzyme and active probiotic blend to improve nutrient absorption.  Amazing Grass Green SuperFood combines nutrient dense green food concentrates with other uniquely powerful ingredients like açaí and maca.  Sambazon? Acai, is a purple berry loaded with antioxidants, healthy omega fats, fiber and protein that grows in the Amazon Rainforest; and maca is a nutritious root grown at high altitudes in Peru that is known to be an adaptogen that boosts the immune system and provides sustained energy, vitality and mental clarity.

    Well, this sounds like a truly healthy snack for those on-the-go, and who isn’t, right? I’m curious as to how good they taste. All the ingredients seem to be organic and nutrient heavy but in my experience, you usually give up taste for those perks. I wonder if that is the case here as well? Also, 240 calories is substantial. Is there a lower calorie option?
