Buzz: Good Greens Are Good + Giveaway
It’s race week! Woot! Given my foot I have no idea whether I’ll actually be running the race or not. I have no clue. This would be my first official DNS if that’s the case. I am resting and staying off my feet as much as possible. Unfortunately my job calls for being on my feet, so I don’t know how much resting will be had this week. We shall see. You know I’ll keep ya’ll posted!
In honor of race week, it’s time for another giveaway!
Awhile back I happened upon Good Greens on Alicia’s blog. I was intrigued for several reasons. They operate out of a suburb of Cleveland (basically local to me) and all of their products are 100% vegan. I just had to try them.
Thankfully while at the Arnold Fitness Festival I was able to meet them and try out there products. I wanted to Buzz about them and let you know what I thought.
I’ll try not to get all scientific on you, but let me tell you a bit about the bars.
Good Greens delivers key phytonutrients that are absorbed by the body, reduces oxidative stress, impacts markers of systemic inflammation, helps support a healthy immune system and positively impacts several key indicators of cardiovascular wellness. And how do they do this? They also contain 40 antioxidants, 3 probiotics, 5 grams of dietary fiber, and contain 72% organic ingredients.
How do they jam pack all of this into a littler bar? It’s their Z52 Super Powder. This powder contains 52 superfoods that give the bars all of their nutrients. Basically they took a green superfood, which are known to taste, well, not so good, and made it palatable.
Now, the big question….did they succeed in this? Yes! I’ve had many o’ tasty energy/meal bars in my life but Good Greens are pretty gosh darn good. The flavor choices are: Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Coconut, and Wildberry. My personal fave is the Chocolate Coconut but they are all quite tasty. One of the things they say is that they taste like a candy bar. I think I’d agree with that. With 3 of the 4 bar flavors being covered in chocolate it’s hard not to taste like a candy bar. On top of all that they check-in at only 195 calories. Not to mention, they contain 12g of protein and only 24 carbs.
