Sick of Salads and Smoothies? Here’s a Quick and Easy Way to Eat More GreensJanuary 13th, 2017
If you’ve made the resolution to eat more greens, chances are you’ve considered jumping on the green smoothie/juice bandwagon.
It’s an efficient way to get the nutrients from a variety of fruits and vegetables that may not otherwise cross your plate. But if you’re not a fan (especially in the cold winter months) or find it too hard to keep your fridge stocked with enough produce to keep your drinks interesting, fear not! Amazing Grass—the company behind the popular line of superfood powders and other supplements—has developed a variety of nutritious bars to give your diet a superfood boost.
We recommend them when you want to eat healthy on the go or have a quick but wholesome snack (especially on days when your meals would make a nutritionist wince). The great thing is you get to reap all the nutritional rewards—antioxidants from greens, fruits, veggies, and plant-based protein—without doing any prep. Organic, non-GMO, and vegan, the bars contain wheatgrass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, spinach, chlorella, and broccoli, as well as other nutrient-dense superfoods that vary by flavor. Some of our favorites include Chocolate Chip Coconut, Green Superfood, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt. They feature 5 to 12 grams of plant-based protein and 3 to 7 grams of fiber for a super satiating bar.
We have to agree with Amy, one of our Thrive Market members, who commented, “The remarkable thing about them is how satisfying they are. They’re the only bars that actually fill me up instead of making me look around for something else to eat.”
So stash a few in your purse or gym bag and let us know which flavor you like best!
