As a child, I was very picky. And when I say very picky, I mean I wouldn’t even eat pizza. Nothing with sauce, no vegetables, aside from peas (which I couldn’t eat enough of), and certainly no fruit. It’s a wonder that I survived to tell the tale.
Thankfully college was a bit of a shock to the system, and I realized just how ridiculous my diet was, lacking fruits and vegetables and including only simple, sauce-on-the-side meals (making it easier to go for terrible food choices!). After pushing myself to get over my apparent texture aversion with fresh fruits and veggies, I’m proud to say I happily enjoy salads, veggies and fruits in my diet. While that has been a big hurdle to get over, I’m always happy to find more natural ways to have a healthier diet and boost my energy and metabolism.
That’s why I was eager to try HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder when I got a sample from Sephora. It’s described as a powder to support radiant skin and a healthy metabolism with raw organic greens, fiber, enzymes, and probiotics. Oh, and it tastes like mint chocolate chip. Sounds amazing, right?
They direct you to mix it with a cup of your favorite milk (I chose unsweetened almond milk), water, or to mix it into a smoothie or non-acidic juice. The powder smelled a bit like chocolate milk mix, which surprised me with its mere 2 grams of sugar (full nutrition facts here!). I put mine in my Magic Bullet for a few seconds to ensure the crystals fully dissolved.
Overall, I loved the flavor! It has a touch of mint, and the mocha flavor is appealing to me. This is the perfect afternoon snack – I tend to hit a bit of a craving for something around 3:00, like many people do. An added plus – the powder mixed with unsweetened almond milk is only 55 calories, so it’s the perfect sweet treat before my evening workout. Plus it definitely gives a little boost of energy to get me through the afternoon.
