As some of you may know I have been dealing with some major health issues for the past 5 years, my biggest is thyroid cancer & migraines. Since my cancer diagnosis I have concentrated on doing better for my body and getting healthy. I have spent lots of time and energy reading up on what is good for me, what I can do to change the way I feel & try and keep my cancer from coming back. I have also worked hard on loosing weight that I gained from my treatments every 6 months. One of the biggest things I have done is started eating gluten free. I know in a few reviews now I have talked about this & I have a feeling you will hear it again. . . . . Eating gluten free has helped me with not having migraines. I used to get them 5 out of 7 days. Now I only seem to have one when I don't stick to my new eating lifestyle. Garden of Life has helped me stick to my new way of life.
They have some WONDERFUL products to make your body healthy. The thing that first attracted me to the site was the 1st time of a message from Garden of Life it says: Please join us for a moment in picturing a world where good health is a given, not a matter of chance. In this imagined world, chronic obesity is no longer a problem and couples never rely on fertility drugs to conceive. The 4,000 people we lose prematurely every day to cancer, diabetes and heart disease would still be with us. And when we do contract an illness, we are not dependent on "drug-care," but are instead able to take control of our own health with lifestyle changes and advanced nutrition.
At Garden of Life, we believe such a world is possible, and that together, we can make it happen.
The 2nd thing was all the great products they sell and the easy on the pocket prices that go along with them.
Two of my most popular items from Garden of Life for me are RAW Meal & RAW Fit.
RAW Meal is formulated to be a snack or meal replacement that satisfies hunger. Raw Meal 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.
It's RAW, Vegan, Gluten Free and Dairy Free ~ all things that are very important to me. RAW Meal comes in four flavors, Regular, Chocolate, Vanilla and Vanilla Spiced Chai. My favorite is the Vanilla. I will say the one thing I don't like about RAW Meal is it's thick. Directions say to add 16 ounces of water to the packet, I always end up adding 1-2 extra ounces of water or some ice cubes that melt thinning it out. The thickness might not bother others but it does me. At only 340 calories this is a perfect meal replacement that satisfies hunger and provides you with energy.
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, lose weight and look great!
You add 1 scoop RAW Fit to 8 oz. water up to 2 times per day. Or you can mix it with unsweetened rice or almond milk. It has a thin consistency but somewhat chalky. The first time I tried RAW Fit it was hard to get down, I just didn't like the chalky taste. But after I had it for breakfast on day two I tried adding a few ice cubes to my shaker cup with the 8 oz. of water and 1 scoop of powder and thought it tasted allot better. So to me it's better cold. I have blended it with some frozen berries to add extra flavor.
RAW Fit is RAW, Vegan, Certified Organic, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, lactose Free, Soy Free, No Fillers, No Synthetic Nutrients, No Artificial Flavors or Sweeteners, No Preservatives and No Pea Protein
Perfect High Protein for Weight Loss, helps burn fat, satisfy hunger and fight cravings.
Both RAW Meal and RAW Fit are excellent things to try when changing your eating habits. Just because I had a few experimenting tries with both products doesn't mean they aren't good. I am just picky and like what I like, once I got one thinner and one colder I was a happier customer. I would and have recommended both these and more products from Garden of Life to friends and family.
