When I was approached about being the expert for Grown American Superfood’s promotional video I took one look at the product and knew I wanted to know more. It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted to be a part of what the amazing Van Drunen family is creating–a powerful, yet convenient, superfood that helps you get those 5-9 serving of fruits and veggies a day.
I believe in the power of food as medicine. And I know first hand that eating healthy when your schedule is packed is next to impossible. My mission with my own product line has been to create products that are packed with nutrition yet easy to have for busy people, and I am so excited to partner with Grown American Superfood™ and the Van Drunen family in bringing you another superfood that super convenient!
What actually is a superfood?
Although there’s no set criteria as to what defines a “superfood”, they are simply fruits and vegetables which offer a more powerful nutritional punch because of the quality and quantity of the vitamins and nutrients. These superfoods are full of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, fiber & natural phytonutrients.
Grown American Superfoods, is made from:
- 5 organic concentrated leafy greens Kale, Spinach, Wheatgrass, Barley grass, & Alfalfa grass
- 8 organic superfruits in Grown American, including Blueberry, Strawberry, Cranberry, Orange, Cherry, Lemon, Pear, & Apple.
- 12 organic sprouts: Amaranth, Quinoa, Millet, Buckwheat, Garbanzo Bean, Lentil, Adzuki, Flax, Sunflower, Pumpkin, Chia & Sesame.
- 6 organic vegetables Broccoli, Celery, Brussel Sprouts, Carrot, Green Bell Pepper, & Pumpkin
There is a full serving of vegetables and half a serving of fruit in each serving. All of these vegetables, sprouts and fruits are grown in America, fresh picked and gently dried to lock in the freshness. This powder can be used by mixing a scoop in water, juice, or yogurt.
Perfect for 80/20 SLIM Forever Plan
Grown American Superfood is a good addition to your maintenance diet. The 80/20 SLIM Forever program is a long term lifestyle program that is a popular transition from my 10-Day Belly Slimdown diet or the 21-Day Bone Broth diet. This program is for those who have met their weight goals and are looking to maintain those pounds and inches off or those who want to take a break in between rounds of diets and not gain the weight back.
Did you know that ONLY 10% of Americans eat enough fruits and vegetables? If you are one of the 90% that needs help getting enough nutrition in your diet, this is a super simple solution. I can tell you that it takes 30 seconds to prepare this drink. Just 30 seconds! This is a super convenient way to include health supporting nutrients in your diet.
The Grown American Superfood has only 4g of sugar per serving. This sugar comes from the organic fruits and vegetables. There is NO added sugar in Grown American Superfood and has only 25 calories per scoop. In addition to no added sugar, there is no added color, preservatives, No GMO’s and it’s Vegan.
But, really…. How does it taste?
Green drinks seem like a good idea, until you throw it out because it “tastes like dirt”. Grown American Superfood isn’t gritty (like some powders) and has a surprisingly sweet taste.
These are reactions from real first time tasters —
“Green stuff doesn’t usually taste this good.”
“I was truly expecting the taste of grass! It’s very sweet and very good.”
