2010 review roundup: supplements
Since I’ve been asked a few times recently what supplements I regularly add to my diet, I decided to share some with you here!
Not knowing precisely how I’d fare nutritionally on an all-raw diet, I brought a variety of supplements with me to 105degrees. Although I ingested vitamins and minerals aplenty in the food itself, I was glad to have these nutrient-boosting products on hand just in case.
GARDEN OF LIFE Vitamin Code RAW ONE For Women Multivitamin
When Garden of Life sent me a bottle of their Vitamin Code raw multivitamins, I was excited that even my daily multi could be raw. These vitamins have just the right amount of almost all the nutrients a raw vegan woman needs, including B12, D3, and a respectable amount of iron. I know some people don’t “believe” in taking vitamins, but I, for one, do. I like to make absolutely certain I’m giving my body everything it needs, and it’s nice to know that Garden of Life’s raw vitamin products have me covered.
SUNWARRIOR Raw Protein Powders
Check out that stellar ingredient list! I whipped up quite a few post-workout smoothies in my Tribest personal blender with these tasty, not-too-chalky powders.
MACROLIFE NATURALS MacroGreens, Miracle Reds, and Superfood Bars
As a semi-raw vegan with a hatred for leafy greens, I like to keep greens powders in regular rotation in my diet. MacroLife Naturals makes a great product called MacroGreens. It’s raw and vegan, packed with nutrition, and (perhaps best of all) virtually tasteless.
That said, I think I like their Miracle Reds even better! I’m a sucker for berry flavors, and this powder paired perfectly with ripe strawberries.
I was also pleased with their all-natural, raw superfood bars. The Chocolate Cinnamon and Apple Lemon Ginger bars were good…
…but the Berri Berri bar was the best!
Have you tried these products, or any similar?
How important is it to you that your supplements are as raw and/or vegan as your diet is?
