In September of 2010 -- long before I started following a plant-based lifestyle -- I discovered Amazing Grass products through a friend's blog. It wasn't long before I picked up a small tub of the Green Superfood Chocolate Infusion powder and started mixing it into smoothies and shaking it up with a bit of almond milk. Looking back at my initial brush with Amazing Grass, it marks a pivotal turning point in my food journey. My heart opened to the possibility that food could profoundly affect more than my physical presentation; it could affect the way I thought, felt, and moved throughout the day. Furthermore, I realized that what I ate could embody a sort of self-love, self-compassion, and self-respect. I could live this love by listening to the reverberating effects of what I ate on how I felt and eat more of the things that contributed to my well-being and less of the foods that didn't.
Fast forward to January of 2015 and I was presented with the idea of completing Amazing Grass' V-Tox Challenge, a 5-day program with a focus on improving overall health. I quickly jumped on board but an overflowing plate of commitments kept getting in the way of actually following through on completing it. I was avoiding balance when I needed it most. I (finally) took the challenge during the first week of May, and it came at just the right time. Five days of clean eating, exercising, and tuning in to my personal wellness barometer refreshed my perspective and renewed my energy.

How Fun. Going over to check out VTOX
Love your site. Tryed may recipes
I am interested for those times when I just can't manage prepping/cooking my own greens.
I use green powder mixes for a great morning boost or for when I'm feeling drained or draggy! Love the stuff
I want to try the product because I think it would be a great way to sneak some extra greens into my morning smoothie and feel energized for the day!
Carolina John says
Very cool! I love these product, and get them at Earth Fare regularly.
Deanna N says
Ive tried their wheatgrass shots in apple juice and I am addicted..Their products are all insanely good for you while tasting great! I would love to try this one though!!
I'd love to have a convenient way to add more greens to my diet
I've heard so many great things about these products. Thanks for the chance to win!
Donna F. says
I would love to try Amazing Grass products because they are so nutrient dense!
These products look like a great way to incorporate more greens into my diet!
I LOVE Amazing Grass products, and how conveniently they fit into my clean eating lifestyle. Their standards are as high as my expectations for finding only certified organic, non-gmo, whole food, etc, etc, etc quality foods. Thank you Amazing Grass and Ashley for sharing this giveaway.

I'm not using any Amazing Grass products at the moment, but I am all about adding more greens. I would LOVE to try this alkalizing product.
Marsha A says
I love to add extra oomph to my smoothies. This product looks amazing. A nice detox wouldn't be such a bad thing either!!! Thank you for the giveaway!
After hearing great things about Amazing Grass, I got the wheat grass powder and rotate it in my protein shakes and smoothies. I love that the taste is very mild (although it is chocked full of nutrients!) and that my 1.5 year old son likes it, too! I use another brand of mixed greens powder but would be very interested in trying this particular product!
I need to start adding this since it's hard to eat enough greens. This looks like the perfect adjunct!
Ashley P says
This will be great to add to morning smoothies for a boost of energy and nutrition!
I just recently learned about the body being acidic and alkaline. I really struggle trying to get my body in the alkaline zone. This would probably really help.
Thank you for the info- I was looking for a quality detox/alkalize product.
I love amazing grass
Amanda J says
I have not tried them before but I have been using the Garden of Life Perfect Food with the greens in my smoothies and I would like to try an different brand to see if the benefits are different/better.
I've never really been interested in supplements, but this one looks pretty good. Also, I might've put my email address in wrong on the entry. This is the right one.
Great blog, one of the few I go to regularly.
I need more greens in my diet! I sometimes get busy or stressed and just go for convenience foods and lots of comfort carbs :X.
I absolutely love amazing grass and mainly use their protein powder! It's the best I have tried compared to other vegan protein powders. I'd love to give this product a try
Erin Ellis says
I have not tried Amazing Grass, but I would love to because I am focusing on a more plant based diet. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.
Natalia M says
I would love to try the powder. I'm consistently finding myself lacking energy despite trying my best to eat a wholesome plant based diet, and doing the "right things." I think supplements like this would help because they have essential nutrients not found in foods I eat everyday.
Becca F says
I really enjoy their products and how energized I feel when I drink them.
I've not tried Amazing Grass products. I'm interested in trying them to improve my health since I haven't been eating the best and I suffer from a few chronic conditions.
Vera K says
I have not used this brand but I have used other green powders. It's a great way to keep my health on track.
I've made green powder at home and loved adding it to everything but haven't made the effort to make it recently. It's great stuff and makes you feel amazing so I would love to try Amazing Grass! Thanks for offering a giveaway!!
Catherine Jackson says
I love these products. I throw them in smoothies. They are such an easy, good way to get extra nutrients in during the day. Especially for people who find it hard to eat enough fruits and veggies!
Because it's vegan first and foremost but also raw and organic.
