When it comes to taking care of your health, eating right and living an active life, we face many challenges in this busy world we live in. Many of us turn to fast food, and for those of us that are trying that little bit harder and working out, we try and find the healthiest and best ways to add protein to our diets and also get all that our body needs each day. There are so many protein powders, meal replacements and related products that are loaded with sugar, preservatives, and so many ingredients that our body doesn’t need and that we can even pronounce in a lot of cases, so on our mission to find what we thought was the best, we came across Garden of Life.
Garden of Life makes a large line of great products but the two that we have become huge fans of are the Raw Protein and the Raw Meal.
The Raw protein is USDA Organic, Non GMO, Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free. Featuring 13 RAW and organic sprouts, RAW Protein is an excellent source of complete protein, providing 17 grams, or 33% of the Daily Value, plus all essential amino acids. RAW Protein contains Vitamin Code® fat-soluble vitamins and supports digestive health and function with live protein-digesting enzymes and powerful probiotics, and comes in Natural, Chocolate, Vanilla, and Vanilla Chai.
The second product we have really enjoyed and stand by is the Raw Meal. It is also USDA Organic, Non GMO, Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free. Raw Meal goes beyond organic by providing live probiotics and enzymes, Vitamin Code® RAW Food-Created vitamins and minerals, as well as nutrient Code Factors™ such as beta-glucans, SOD, glutathione and CoQ10, enabling natural recognition by your body. Containing 26 superfoods from RAW organic seeds, sprouts and greens, RAW Meal provides 34 grams of protein, 9-16 grams of fiber and a healthy 2.5 grams of fat. RAW Meal also offers 20 Vitamin Code vitamins and minerals providing at least 100% of the Daily Value of 16 key nutrients. Raw meal also comes in the same flavours as the protein.
So you’re probably thinking “ya this is good for me, sure, but it probably tastes like crap.” And while no protein or meal replacement that is good for you tastes like a chocolate sunday, we really enjoyed mixing the chocolate with unsweetened chocolate almond milk, and the Chai with unsweetened almond milk.
So if you are looking for a healthy, clean, option to keep your body in check, you should join us in the Garden of Life.
