Yay for Humpday and yay for tomorrow being my BIRTHDAY! Just so everyone knows, I will happily accept Team in Training donations for my birthday. Haha Just kidding. Well sort of. I still have to raise a little over $1,000 this summer! Eeek!
This morning after hearing Ryan’s rave reviews last night, I decided to make a “super” green monster for breakfast using this product that I admittedly had not opened yet from Amazing Grass.
Amazing Meal combines all the awesomeness of Amazing Grass powder with hemp and rice protein to give you a little more bang for your buck. I still am a whimp when it comes to this stuff and I’d much rather put Amazing Grass in a smoothie than drink it plain with water. So, this morning I combined:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop Amazing Meal
- 1 scoop raw almond butter
- 4 cups spinach
- 1 cup almond milk
Really, really good! I honestly couldn’t tell the Amazing Meal was even in there. It tasted just like normal. Ryan even begged for a sip; he’s sad because he has a business breakfast this morning and can’t have his usual.
However, I casually asked him if he would care for a shot of wheatgrass before work. Then I used reverse psychology and said, “nevermind…it really doesn’t taste good…most people can’t drink it straight up….” Of course then he leaped at it and said he would show me!
I mixed 1 scoop with about 8 ounces cold water and slid him the glass.
He looked pretty confident but then…………
I think the limit was pushed.
I think we should stick to hiding his greens in smoothies although I give him credit because I’m not about to drink this stuff straight up anytime soon. Its amazing for you, yes, but definitely not for the faint of heart (like me)!
