Yeah, I know, no posts for a month, now 2 in one day! Sorry, it’s all about priorities..Anyhoo, my husband has been a believer in Garden of Life Raw Meal products for a while. He lost about 10 lbs in a few weeks just by swapping out breakfast with a protein shake. Now, if he was female, it would be a different story! But I was like, yuck – protein shakes are so gross. But Garden of Life has no whey, no soy. Only sprouted grains, vitamins and probiotics. It’s organic too.
The hubby was trying to get me on the Raw Meal bandwagon. So the other day, we went to Whole Foods and bought a container of Garden of Life Raw Meal Marley Coffee Meal Replacement. I do have to say it is really, really good. It is my new go-to breakfast meal. I mix it up 1 scoop with 6 to 8 oz cold coffee and ice cubes. (Yay for caffeine!) Give it a whirl in your blender and sip it with a straw. So. Freaking. Good. Love me some coffee!
I have to say it does keep me from feeling hunger pangs (and if you know me, I will eat at the first sign of hunger….) I have also tried their Vanilla Raw Meal mixed with a cup of cold chai decaf tea (plain) It tastes like a graham cracker. Garden of Life also sent my husband a box of the Raw Fit protein and it tastes just as good as the Vanilla Raw Meal. Oh, they also sponsor some really cool guys who are MMA fighters. If it’s good for them, it should be awesome for me! 🙂
