MacroLife Greens Review & Giveaway

Green is the thing. Yeah, recycling and living a green lifestyle are cool and all, but this time we’re talking about green for your insides!

Green juices and smoothies seem to be at the top of everyone’s healthy “must have” list. But the fact is, they can be time consuming, messy, and expensive to make at home. This is especially true if you live in an area where organic produce is not abundant, or you live the sort of lifestyle where having 30 seconds to breathe deeply is a luxury.

Enter MacroLife Naturals.

MacroLife makes dietary supplements that are disguised as yummy snack foods and designed to deliver wholesome green goodness whenever you need it. I was able to try out the Macro Greens Certified Organic Barley Grass Juice Powder, as well as all three flavors of their Antioxidant Superfood Bars. As someone who is always looking for easier ways to sneak in my greens, I was excited to try out this line and pretty darn happy with the experience.

Macro Greens Barley Juice Powder

Macro Greens Certified Organic Barley Grass Juice Powder

This bright green powdered drink mix is 100% vegan and gluten-free, as well as free of other common allergens. The formula boasts 38 superfoods, including spirulina, chlorella, and flax.

Macro Greens also contains gut-healthy bacteria and counts toward 5+ servings of veggies in your day. Although it’s not intended to be a meal replacer, it’s a good way to supplement a healthy diet and feel good about what’s going in your body.

You can combine the powder with a variety of liquids, but I found I’m a fan of mixing 1 Tbsp of Macro Greens powder with 6oz each of unsweetened apple juice and cold water. The natural sweetness of the apple juice was just enough to offset the powder’s oceanic flavors, and the overall volume of the beverage wasn’t overwhelming. The powder doesn’t dissolve completely in liquid, so I found it was best to shake up the drink and slurp it quickly, so as not to leave behind any undissolved green goodness in the bottom of my glass.

MacroLife Antioxidant Bars

Antioxidant Superfood Bars

These fruit and nut superfood bars are available in three flavors: Macro Greens Apple-Lemon-Ginger, Macro Greens Chocolate-Cinnamon, and Macro Reds Berri-Berri.

The texture is similar to other bars on the market, which is a good thing. They are soft, dense, and slightly chewy, which makes them a satisfying snack after a workout or on the go.

The Superfood Bars have a lot of the same ingredients found in the Barley Juice Powder, so you can choose to have one or the other, or pair them for a big energy boost. The MacroLife products are particularly good for fending off a mid-afternoon slump, or to have in the morning when you’re just not feeling up to facing the day. Who hasn’t been there?
