We recently had the chance to review a selection of nutritional products from Garden of Life:
Garden of Life offers some of the most effective nutritional products in the world. They feature products that are designed to let you take control of your own health. The Garden of Life brand offers "a path to healthy living with premium products that are supported by education and innovation."
We tried RAW Fit, RAW Meal and Living Foods Super Seed Bars.
"RAW Fit is a USDA Certified Organic, RAW, plant-based vegan high-protein powder that is an easy way to increase your protein intake. It has a mild, slightly sweet flavor that mixes great with your favorite food or beverage and contains RAW, organic and clinically studied ingredients to help you burn fat, maintain healthy blood sugar, boost your energy."
"Garden of Life® RAW Meal was formulated to be a snack or meal replacement that satisfies hunger, is naturally filling and provides energy, all while providing the protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals that you would find in a healthy meal of raw foods. RAW Meal provides the nutrition of a well-balanced, healthy raw meal in one delicious serving."
B reviewed the RAW Fit and RAW Meal Shakes. He enjoyed having something quick for breakfast on the way out the door to work. He preferred the RAW Meal as far as taste and consistency. He said the RAW Fit curbed his appetite, but the RAW Meal kept him full until lunchtime. If you don't normally have a full breakfast, the RAW Meal might be better for a lunch replacement, since it's a little heavier, but the RAW Fit would be perfect for a quick early morning meal. Both were super easy and quick to make, just mix in the shaker bottle with any kind of milk or cold water (B's preference). If you are looking for something heavier and more filling, mix with almond or soy milk.
"Living Foods™ Bars combine the goodness of nutritious whole foods such as organic fruit, vegetables, nuts and sprouted grains with beneficial LIVE PROBIOTICS, all sweetened with honey to create an incredibly satisfying bar that is both delicious and healthy for you. Each bar contains soluble fiber from oat beta glucan, an important ingredient for supporting a healthy heart."
We tried the Apple Cinnamon Naturally Flavored bars and they were fantastic. The whole family loved them and B even took some on his backpacking trip through Central America. He said they were great to have on hand when they were in between populated areas and food was sparse. They have a yummy taste and can definitely keep you full!
