Amazing Grass giveaway!

I have had the pleasure of sampling several Amazing Grass products over the past few days. Now it is time for the giveaway! I think blog giveaways are so much fun because we all share a love for healthy living, fitness, and blogging! :)

However, you either have to read my regular post first, or just scroll to the bottom to get to the giveaway. ;-) So without further ado, here's a few of my good eats over the last two days, including a few more Amazing Grass products.

I took and Original GreenSuperfood bar to work on Tuesday and ate it before 3 hours of teaching. It held me over very well, gave me a lot of energy and was supremely delicious. These bars are

  • Raw
  • Cold Processed
  • Alkaline
  • Gluten Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Vegan

  • And here's what's in it:

    Organic Dates, Organic Agave Nectar, Amazing Grass Green SuperFood (Organic Wheat Grass, Organic Barley Grass, Organic Alfalfa, Organic Spirulina, Organic Spinach, Organic Chlorella, Organic Broccoli, Organic Acai, Organic Maca, Organic Carrot, Organic Beet, Raspberry, Organic Rose Hips, Pineapple, Green Tea, Organic Flax Lignans, L. Adidophilus, Alpha and Beta Amylase, Protease, Lipase, Lactase, Cellulase, Organic Peppermint), Organic Cashews, Organic Almond Butter, Organic Almonds, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Dried Cranberries, Organic Pumpkin Seeds, Organic Dried Coconut and Organic Vanilla Extract. Allergy Information: Contains Almonds and Cashews


    I also stopped into a grocery store to pick up a gift certificate for my mom for her birthday that's coming up and while I as there I bought this new drink to try:


    I work around a lot of kids (I teach at least 20-25 kids every week, from several different school districts!) so I'm amazed that I'm not just always sick. However, it is eventually inevitable, especially at this time of year. I have had so many children come in either actively sick or with a "residual cough" as they call it. So I bought some Vitamin-C rich juice to drink up.

    This morning I had the brilliant idea to mix the Mango juice with a Wheat Grass packet!


    It was seriously delicious! I can't wait to mix another packet of GreenSuperfood into more juice!

    With it, for my breakfast I sauteed 2 small leaves of kale and a bit of red onion. (Trying to emphasize the greens to help my immune system as much as possible!)

    I also made a one egg omelet with Monterey Jack cheese:

    Yesterday's breakfast was a similar omelet:


    Eggs, cheese, kale, avocado, salsa.

    With some juice and coffee:

    A snack from yesterday. This PURE bar flavor is definitely my favorite! And they were on sale for 2/$3 but it rang up as 2/$4 so I got two bars for a total of $1 from the store! :)
