The One Superfood Powder I Swear by for All-Day Energy and Focus — Without the Crash

Tags:

If you’re trying to quit that stubborn coffee habit or you simply want to up your intake of vital greens and nutrients, look no further than this Amazing Grass Green Superfood Energy powder ($19.07, Amazon). I know, I know. Quitting coffee seems next to impossible. We rely on caffeine to boost our alertness as we hustle and bustle throughout our day. But what we often neglect is the inevitable crash that hits in the afternoon once the coffee wears off. And what do we end up doing? We reach for another cup, or worse, suffer the rest of the day with low energy and weak focus.

The thing about our brains is that we need more than caffeine stimulation to stay alert, awake, and focused. While the caffeine boost of coffee provides a quick jolt, that energy expenditure can actually be quite taxing to our adrenals, making us feel tired and unbalanced throughout the day. Additionally, we are often adding an unhealthy amount of sugar to our morning cups of joe, leading to unstable insulin levels and blood sugar problems. Luckily, however, incorporating a quality, nutrient-rich superfood powder will not only give you energy, but provide your body with the necessary components for all day alertness and optimal health.

At first, quitting coffee was definitely tough. But making the switch to a green juice in the morning has benefited my life in more ways than one. Not only do I no longer need coffee, but my energy is consistent throughout the day, and my focus has never been better — and I don’t have to worry about losing it at 2 p.m., when there’s still so much to do! I feel healthier, more energized, and have even lost weight since implementing this one simple, healthy habit. 

The Amazing Grass Green Superfood powder contains a small amount of caffeine from yerba mate and matcha green tea, and it’s loaded with vital energizing nutrients from greens like spirulina, chlorella, and wheat grass. It’s also made with minimally processed organic fruits and vegetables like spinach, broccoli, carrot, raspberry, and pineapple, among others. What’s more, this powder is made with a fiber blend that helps regulate digestion and encourages the growth of healthy gut bacteria, as well as an antioxidant blend that reduces free radicals. Plus, it takes no longer than a few minutes to prep!

I know what you’re thinking: There’s no way this stuff tastes any good. But before you write it off, I urge you to try it out! This particular blend is made with added lemon-lime flavoring, and it doesn’t have that same grassy smell or taste you might imagine when thinking about a wheatgrass shot. In fact, it tastes just like a lightly flavored juice!

Depending on your tastes, you can use the supplement in different ways. If you’re a morning-smoothie type of gal, you may want to experiment with adding a scoop to your blend. If not, you can simply mix one scoop with water. I typically mix it with 12 ounces of water, then add one ounce of apple cider vinegar, which helps to balance blood sugar, detoxify the organs, and promote a healthy gut. Bottoms up!
