Amazing Grass Bars

With a name like Amazing Grass, I expected these energy bars to taste like dry lawn clippings pressed into the familiar rectangle I associate with flavorless meals-to-go. Luckily, I was wrong! These too-healthy-to-be-tasty sounding bars are amazingly good.

They’re not too sweet or too peanut buttery. Not too dry or too pasty. Satisfying but not bloating. And they come in a lovely shade of dark green, so it looks like you’re eating your veggies but doesn’t taste like it.

They’re organic, cold-processed, alkalizing, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan.  Wat more could label-savvy consumer desire? One bar has 230 calories, 5 grams of protein, 8 grams of fat and is packed with omega 3 and 6.

The magic ingredient? Amazing Grass’s own Green SuperFood—a fashionable oleo of healthiness—acai, maca, green tea, agave nectar and spirulina plus barley grass, wheatgrass, alfalfa, spinach, chlorella, rosehips, beets, etc .You get the picture. They taste good and they’re good for you. 

They also come in delicious chocolate, made with fairly traded cocoa.  Think dates and dark chocolate, not chocolate covered wheatgrass.

I intended to post you one bit of word to say thanks a lot over again for these breathtaking concepts you have provided at this time. It was simply tremendously generous of people like you in giving unhampered exactly what a few individuals would’ve marketed as an e book to end up making some cash on their own, specifically seeing that you might well have done it in case you decided. The ideas also acted to provide a easy way to comprehend other individuals have similar keenness just as my very own to figure out way more around this matter. I am sure there are lots of more fun moments up front for individuals that take a look at your website.

Interesting to see chlorella in a chocolate bar here. Chlorella is full of nutrients that bring a wealth of benefits from heavy metal detox, digestive tract cleansing and promotion of eye health to the prevention of conditions such as diabetes, candida and depression.
