Summer has ended and the season of falling leaves, sweater weather, and pumpkin spice is upon us! Check out a few of our FAVORITE fall things to kick start the season.

A Few of Our Favorite Fall Things

The air and the apples are crisp, and the cider and pumpkin are spiced. Autumn is around the corner, so break out your cozy sweaters and check out a few of our favorite fall things to start the season off right:

Get Outside & Enjoy the Weather!

A walk or bike ride in a park or preserve gets you out in the cooler weather and enjoying the changing sights, sounds, and smells.

Visit an Orchard.

Apple, pear, persimmon, sunflower, and pumpkin picking are delightful ways to enjoy the outdoors – plus, it’s prime season for harvesting with fewer bugs, cooler temperatures, and a cornucopia of fall produce available.

Bake Or Cook with The Season’s Bounty!

The kitchen feels especially cozy during the autumn months when the oven warms the home and the aroma of baked goods fills the air. Try some of our favorite fall recipes to get in the mood – exotic vanilla blends beautifully with the season’s flavors, and smoothies transition from summer peaches to juicy pears:

Hot Maple Cinnamon Latte

This recipe literally has it all – rich espresso, spicy cinnamon, our Amazing Protein Glow Vanilla Honeysuckle, plus sweet maple. Did we mention it’s completely vegan?

Fall Harvest Overnight Oats

Exotic Tahitian Vanilla flavor from our Amazing Protein Digest, spiced cinnamon apple, walnuts, and pumpkin combine with rolled oats (gluten-free optional!) for a warm, satisfying, sustaining breakfast.

Fall Greens Smoothie

Fall’s most delicious fruits come together in this green smoothie (featuring Greens Blend Superfood Original) – you’ll be craving it all season long (and beyond)!

6 Ways to Prepare for Getting Back to Routine

Saying goodbye to summer and hello to the fall season can mean a big change for families. Smooth the transition and reduce the upheaval by gradually incorporating some structure into your schedule. Prioritizing hydration, incorporating sound nutrition, and staying well-rested are all key to easing gently into the next season – plan to make the whole process feel more effortless. Check out the tips below for ideas on how to get yourself on track for the new season:

 

1. Start Your Morning Off Right

A nutritious breakfast sets you up for success – plan and prep power-packed muffins or smoothies to make the first meal of the day the easiest (and tastiest).

 

2. Prioritize Your Sleep Schedule

⁠Summer nights meant late bedtimes and unpredictable schedules – fun while it lasted but not conducive to sticking-to-routine success! Don’t let the fam get irritable and exhausted (that’s almost as bad as hangry). Set a reasonable bedtime (you can work toward a goal if you’re too far off the desired hour) and make the evenings a time to wind down and relax together.

 

3. Build A New Routine

Whether this is going back to a work-night sleep schedule during the last month of summer, waking progressively earlier, or prepping lunches and breakfast the night before, get back to the grind – gradually.

 

4. Prep Healthy Meals and Snacks

Try our Organic Plant Protein Blends to get your own morning started and inject some amazing into your culinary creations.

 

5. Stay Hydrated

Water, smoothies, and milk are all good ways to stay hydrated (and energized!). With hydrating electrolytes and B vitamins, Fizzy Green Tablets work overtime for mom and dad with their water to provide a daily dose of green nutrition plus enhanced hydration.

 

6. Keep Moving

It’s second nature to stay active in the summer months, but don’t lose all that momentum as the weather turns. During the workday you’re likely to sit more and exercise less when the leaves start to fall so incorporating sports and activity into the schedule will help keep you focused. Not to mention, physical activity improves behavior and boosts positive attitudes!

5 Easy Ways to Get More Greens Into Your Daily Diet

By Ashley Martens

Today, more than ever before, more people are adopting a plant-based diet. I may be stating the obvious here, but a plant-based diet consists of eating, you guessed it, mainly plants including fresh fruits and vegetables. Even if you aren’t fully focused on shifting your daily diet to mostly plants, it’s still important to enjoy a dose (or two) of daily greens and how a Super Greens Powder Blend can help.

 


 

The Importance of Fruits and Vegetables

Fruit and vegetables are teeming with phytonutrients as well as fiber, minerals and vitamins, which help the body achieve optimal health. Here are a few of the benefits of eating more fruits and vegetables.

  • Antioxidants, Minerals and Vitamins. Plants are chock-full of minerals and vitamins. Dark leafy greens like broccoli, kale and spinach all contain Vitamins E and K and also have minerals like calcium and magnesium. Skip the multivitamin and grab some greens instead.
  • Fiber. Plant-based foods, like fruits and vegetables, are full of fiber. Fiber helps keep you satiated and feeling satiated after meals could potentially decrease daily snack attacks. Enjoying quality sources of fiber from whole food sources, like fruits and vegetables, can also reduce the risk of chronic disease and can help control weight.
  • Phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are responsible for a plant’s bright color, smell and taste and plant-based foods, like fruits and vegetables, are packed with them. Phytonutrients also help to fight free-radicals, to help prevent cell damage.

 


 

Easy Ways to Get More Fruits and Vegetables

Eating more fruits and vegetables may sound like a daunting task, but it can be easy. Here are five ways you can easily enjoy more fruits and vegetables every day.

5 easy ways to get more greens, fruits and veggies into your diet

#1 Add Fruits and Vegetables to Smoothies

  • Don’t enjoy the taste of vegetables? Sneak them into smoothies instead.  Add a cup of kale or a handful of spinach to a smoothie or smoothie bowl for an added dose of daily greens. Top with your favorite fresh fruits and enjoy all of the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables all in one delicious dish.
  • In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, add a scoop of Amazing Grass Greens Blend Superfood The Original and enjoy an additional two full servings of fruit, greens and vegetables. Prefer something fruity? Add a burst of fresh flavor with a scoop of Greens Blend Superfood Berry and enjoy a punch of antioxidant-rich Acai berries, which are loaded with phytonutrients.

#2 Fill Up a Flatbread

  • A delicious way to enjoy more fruits and vegetables is by adding them to a favorite flatbread or pizza. Vegetables make an easy addition to flatbreads and pizzas, so whether you prefer mushrooms, onions, peppers or all three, layer on the vegetables and make that slice of pizza as unique as your tastes. Even pineapple is welcome. Hey, we don’t discriminate!

#3 Include Fruits and Vegetables in Sandwiches, Salads, Soups and Stir Frys

  • Eating more fruits and vegetables is easy when whipping up a handcrafted sandwich, salad, soup or stir fry. These meals are especially good if you have some leftover vegetables that you aren’t sure how to repurpose. Fill your salad with fresh farmers market vegetables, stack that handcrafted sandwich with luscious leafy greens and use leftover vegetable scraps in a homemade soup or stir fry.

#4 Drink a Greens Powder

  • Not a fan of eating your greens, fruits & veggies? An easy and convenient way to add greens to your diet is to drink a green supplement powder. Green powders provide a wide variety of concentrated green vegetables. A great benefit to incorporating green powders into your diet is that they include hard to consume, nutritious greens like wheat grass and alfalfa and plant-algae like spirulina and chlorella. Better yet, a Daily Greens Powder Blend contains a variety of nutritious greens, PLUS a colorful assortment of fruits & vegetables, fiber, pre and probiotics & more!
  • Each scoop of Amazing Grass Greens Blend – Superfood has 7 nutritious greens, 2 servings of fruits and veggies and Vitamins C & K to help support health and immunity. Simply add one scoop to water and say “hello” to your new daily wellness routine.

#5 Sneak Fruits and Vegetables into Something Sweet

 


 

From fiber to phytonutrients, fruits and vegetables are absolutely amazing! Between their delicious taste, immune support and various vitamins and minerals, eating more fruits and vegetables are essential to optimal health. 

Remember to focus on bright colors, choose foods with ingredients you and your body can recognize and create recipes with more plant focused ingredients. When in doubt, include a scoop of Amazing Grass to ensure you are enjoying the many benefits fresh fruits and vegetables have to offer. Simple shifts like these can bring you one step closer to living an amazingly nourished life.

Why You Need A Greens Blend Superfood in Your Diet

By Ashley Martens

Food should give your body more of the good stuff. You know, food and ingredients you and your body can actually recognize.

 

That means focusing on real, whole foods like fresh fruits, high quality meats, nuts, seeds and vegetables.

Vegetables, especially greens, are one of the most nutrient-dense food categories. Think of all of those lovely, luscious leafy greens like arugula, kale and spinach. Plants like these deliver an array of antioxidants, minerals, phytonutrients and vitamins.

Although many of us may already make a conscious effort to include more greens into our daily meals and snacks, it’s probably safe to say we could all afford a little extra. I know I could!

Including leafy greens in homemade sandwiches, salads, smoothies and soups is an easy and delicious way to enjoy more greens throughout the day. A more convenient way is with a scoop of a high quality greens blend. This is especially convenient when calendars are crazy and schedules are busy. That’s why everyone needs a greens blend in their life.

 



Why Choose a Greens Blend? …Plus Greens Blend Benefits.

Greens are a great source of nutrition, containing antioxidants, minerals and nutritious fiber. Foods like alfalfa grass, barley grass, broccoli, spinach and wheatgrass all contain adequate amounts of fiber, which is good for gut health.

Dietary fiber is the part of plant-based food that mostly passes through the digestive system without breaking down or being digested. If you often find yourself wondering “What are ways to improve gut health” or “How can I improve gut health,” a simple solution is by adding more sources of quality fiber to your diet. A super easy way to do this is by including more of the good stuff in your day – enter greens blend, a powdered green superfood.

Packed with organic greens, nutrient-dense superfoods and wholesome fruits and vegetables, Amazing Grass Greens Blend is an incredibly convenient way to enjoy whole food nutrition the body needs in an easy and delicious powder that is super simple to incorporate into any lifestyle, especially a busy one! I’m pretty sure that applies to everyone reading this – yes, that means you!

 

 


Process

Greens Blend Growing Process

When selecting foods and supplements, I strongly believe in keeping things simple, just like Mother Nature intended it to be. That means choosing foods that my body and I can recognize. Let’s be real here folks, if I cannot recognize an ingredient, my body probably won’t know what it is either.

Besides keeping ingredient lists short, I prefer to select brands and companies that also respect the process of Mother Nature. After all, nothing good ever happens fast. Mother Nature knows that! Slow growth, deep roots and harvesting plants at peak nutrition are some of the finer details that make all the difference. This helps foods yield some of the highest quality foods and ingredients.

When it comes to quality, I want to provide my body and my health with the highest quality possible. That way, the maximum amount of nutrients can be passed on to me. This is one of the reasons why I opt for plant-based foods and supplements.

 


Greens Blend Suggested Uses

One of the best parts about a greens blend is that it can be incorporated in practically any recipe no matter what your diet, goals or lifestyle. Conveniently add greens to your daily routine by simply adding a scoop to beverages, bake into favorite recipes or include in smoothies. If you have specific health and wellness goals, you can even combine your favorite recipes with a greens blend to match your mission. My favorite greens blend is made from Amazing Grass because they come in a variety of different functions.

Antioxidant
Interested in immune support? How about Antioxidant Sweet Berry, which really delivers a one-two punch.
Detox Digest
Down for a detox? Try Detox and Digest Clean Greens.
Watermelon
In need of energy? (Aren’t we all?). How about a refreshing blend?
Lemon-Lime
Okay, maybe something zestful instead? Try our Energy Lemon-Lime

Getting a daily dose of greens, fruits and veggies doesn’t have to be complicated. Choosing a Greens Blend that fits your diet, health and wellness goals and overall lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated either. Amazing Grass helps you to feel good knowing you are providing your body with the whole food nutrition you need to thrive each and every day.

*Always consult a doctor or primary care physician before undergoing any major diet or lifestyle changes.

6 Ways to Practice Self Care

Self care sounds easy, but sometimes we just fail at making it a priority.

It’s time to take charge of your mental health. That doesn’t mean you have to restructure your entire, busy life. Small, simple changes can make a big impact. Here are some self care tips that are totally doable.


Stay Active

Exercise increases endorphins in your brain. Tip: Make your goals realistic. Commit to yoga a few times a week, running, walking, biking, or something that makes you happy. If you don’t enjoy it, you aren’t going to do it regularly.


Nourish Your Body

It is very easy to get lost in your routine and not have a well-balanced diet. A wholesome diet not only nourishes your body but your mind as well. Start your day with Greens Blend for an easy and delicious way to get your 2 servings of greens, fruits & veggies.


Take a Break

In a world that runs so fast, it is very easy to get wrapped up in your busy schedule and not take time out for yourself. Your body and mind both need some time to recover, so give yourself that much-needed break every so often.


Socialize

Although the pandemic has made this especially hard this past year, we can lean on the power of technology. Schedule a Face Time or even host a virtual dinner party. Remember, no matter how busy you are, friends & family will always prove to be your stress busters. 


Prioritize sleep

Not getting enough sleep can leave you feeling irritable and exhausted in the short term. In the longer term, it can lead to weight gain and serious health consequences. Your brain and body need time to rest. Aim to get 7-8 hours of sleep a night by setting an alarm an hour before you want to be asleep by.


Remember to Hydrate

Dehydration may lead to constipation, dizziness, confusion and low blood pressure. (Bonus points if you include a Fizzy Green Tablet!) Why? It’s filled with 1 full serving of greens & veggies in each tablet for an added nutrition boost.
