One of the most amusing things to look at when checking out my google analytics stats is the search terms by which people find your website.
can i drink a mojita and champagne in the same evening? Yes, you most definitely can, and this champagne mojito recipe is a great way to combine them into one delicious drink.
are drunken noodles healthy? Hmm, at home you can control the amount of oil used, but it also depends on how you feel about pasta.
addicted to eating out. Me too, I feel your pain.
how many calories in burratta? Doesn’t matter.
It’s actually inspired this updated post about Amazing Grass (affiliate!). SO many people come to my blog by searching “amazing grass” “amazing grass flatulence” “amazing grass meal” “amazing grass gas” “is amazing grass any good?” (I’m serious with all of these!) And the original post needed some updating. So it was time for a revamp and full review on the full Amazing Grass product line.
I set off to Whole Foods (West Hollywood!) and picked up every single Amazing Grass powder they had.
And then we drank a lot of greens. Going into this, my favorites were the plain wheat grass and original and it remained that way throughout the tasting. I prefer to mix the greens with a few ounces of water and a splash of orange juice while Richie preferred some of the flavored varieties. In all honesty, I found all of the flavors too fake and artificial-tasting so it all depends on your personal preference.
Nutritionally speaking, I think greens like this have a time and a place, especially if it is difficult to get the recommended fruits and veggies in on a daily basis. I’ve used them when I’m traveling or when eating vegetables isn’t always easy and in that sense, I think they are great! If they are in addition to a veggie-filled diet, more power to you. If you eat great and hate them, don’t feel bad! If they cause you gas, I would probably skip them. Different bodies digest things differently and if yours isn’t a fan, listen to it!
The Wheat Grass variety was in my top two favorites but Richie thought it was “awful,” even though he likes fresh wheat grass! (I think the gritty texture is the reason.)
The Original is still my favorite and the one I would buy first (I would also buy the wheat grass).
The Pineapple Lemongrass was probably Richie’s favorite of the flavored varieties. I didn’t love it, but liked it more than most of the other flavors.
Lemon-lime was also one that Richie didn’t mind too much, not surprisingly, it reminded me of flat sprite – not in a good way.
We couldn’t tell a ton of difference between the berry varieties…
…but did prefer the Raw Reserve a little more. I also like that it is made with E3Live which is an amazing algae supplement.
We were both terrified to drink the chocolate greens. Because…well, chocolate + greens? But, surprisingly, this was my favorite of the flavored versions. Richie didn’t agree and his only comment was, “Gross.”
