Happy & Healthy Monday my friends! If you follow me on Instagram you can see that I’ve been quite busy lately so my blogging has fallen a bit behind. So…I’m back with a #FeelAmazingEveryday workout that is something quick you can do anywhere, anytime….and a Protein Superfood giveaway from Amazing Grass. If you haven’t tried Amazing Grass Protein Superfood yet I encourage you to try it! It’s a fabulous way to get green, fruits, veggies and plant-based protein all-in-one shake! I’ve been posting tons of smoothie recipes lately because they are super convenient, healthy and so refreshing on a hot summer’s day!
“Amazing Grass was created in 2002 to help people connect health, nutrition and the environment to lead more active lives through organic, plant-based nutrition. For more than 50 years, its family farm in Kansas has perfected the growing, harvesting and dehydration of organic greens to ensure optimal nutrition. Today, they thoughtfully combine their alkalizing greens with the highest quality plant-based ingredients and superfoods sustainably sourced from around the world. All Amazing Grass products are plant-based, Non-GMO, and made with real, whole-food ingredients. Amazing Grass is designed for people who want to get the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables conveniently, cleanse and detoxify, have digestive issues, and/or are vegan or consuming a vegetarian diet.
Amazing Grass Protein SuperFood contains a unique blend of USDA Organic pea, hemp, chia and quinoa, delivering 20g of complete plant-based protein per serving plus 7 alkalizing organic greens and two-full servings of wholesome fruits and vegetables. Each flavor is also grain-free, paleo friendly, and can be enjoyed alone with water, added to a smoothie or almond, cashew or coconut milk. The line’s unique pea protein is the only available source that is 100 percent grown, harvested and processed in the USA, providing one of the smoothest, best tasting plant-based proteins on the market.”
I requested the Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Superfood to sample and review and I’m so glad I did, because it’s heavenly! It’s not gritty and has just the right amount of sweetness to it!
I workout every single day…mostly doing HIIT workouts but I also love doing yoga every day too. Amazing Grass Protein Superfood fuels me up after a HIIT workout and gives me energy and nutrition to get through my days.
Here is a quick 20 minute HIIT workout you can do anywhere!
Do each move for 50 seconds as fast as you can, rest 10 seconds then move on to the next exercise. Repeat all 4 exercises 5 times for a quick 20 minute HIIT workout.
If you have time when you are finished, follow it up with a nice relaxing yoga flow to stretch out those muscles.
I don’t know about you, but I always feel amazing after a good sweaty workout!
Now, for your chance to win a bottle of Amazing Grass Protein Superfood, just comment on my workout video on YouTube, re-post the Instagram video, and/or comment on my blog post here and let me know if you did the workout and what flavor you would like to try if you win!
