I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
I’m gonna go ahead and get right to it, I have something incredible that I want to talk to you guys about. It’s actually something that I’ve been pretty excited about over the last couple of weeks:
It’s a super green superfood powder that is made up of 35 different (vegetarian) “super” nutrients…
It comes in an easily mixable and digestable powder that is mildly sweetened with Stevia…
And it tastes FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!
Ok wait, let me back up a minute…
A few months ago, the creator of Incredible Greens, Jonathan Bechtel, vegetarian, marathon runner, and all around “good” guy, contacted me about doing a review of his brand new, hot off the
presses dehydrator green superfood powder.
Here’s a sweet face to put with the name…doesn’t he look so proud of his HUGE bowl of hummus?
After reading through the email, perusing the website, and checking out Jonathan’s blog, I decided Incredible Greens sounded like something I would definitely be interested in. Throughout my many adventures in the world of supplement powders/liquids, I’m sad to say I’ve never tried a green foods supplement before.
And I’ll be honest, it wasn’t due to a lack of accessibility…no, it was due to fear…fear of the dreaded
“Oh my god, I’m drinking dried out grass clippings!”
So obviously I jumped at the chance to try one for free…
I was so stoked that when it first arrived on my doorstep, I ripped open the box, peeled open the label…
Screwed the lid back on and put it in the pantry.
I’m like, “Ohhh no, who does he think he is trying to market this stuff?…it looks like dehydrated pond scum!
In the words of Michelle Tanner, “I donnnnnn’t think so!”
Then, a few weeks ago, I just
came around to it was reminded that it was hiding in the pantry when I received a follow up email from Jonathan.
So I went to the kitchen, poured myself a glass, gritted my teeth…
And about fell on the floor by how incredible it tasted!
Corny I know, but I’m totally serious!
But don’t take my word for it, I asked BB to let me borrow his taste buds JUST for the benefit of this post:
He obsequiously agreed and then quickly became a fan.
After his initial taste, I decided we should put it up against some other contenders for an unofficial “green foods taste off”:
Oh look at that, some samples that I’ve been
saving too afraid to try!
The Greens First is a sample I got from my chiropractor MONTHS ago, it tasted pretty good, but had a strong mint flavor to it…not good for anything other than drinking straight…and freshening your breath?
The Amazing Grass GREENSuperFood tasted exactly how I imagined a green drink to taste…definite yard clippage.
And finally, we had our winner…Incredible Greens!
So I figured, if it tastes THIS good by itself, I wonder how it will taste mixed in everything I like to eat for breakfast?
So in went the Incredible Greens into protein pancakes, yogurt bowls, oats, and smoothies…all with hardly a noticeable difference (besides the obvious change in hue).
But the BEST breakfast?
I simply whisked a scoop of Incredible Greens into 5 egg whites and scrambled them upas usual…let it be known right now that I HATE egg whites and refuse to eat them unless they are made into some sort of omelet, breakfast pizza, or covered in cheese.
Wanna know what I added to these?
And oh yeah, remember that Kalamata Olive Hummus?
Couldn’t tell a difference AT ALL!
Ok, so here’s the scoop (haha, get it?)…I seriously want you guys to try this stuff! Jonathan has been working diligently with his marketing crew and manufacturers to get Incredible Greens available for purchase and it is finally ready!
He already has some pretty sweet discounts set up for bulk purchasing, but you guys have definitely hit the jackpot as he was gracious enough to set up a coupon code for Kiss My Broccoli readers.
Just type in the code kissmybroccoli for a total of:
*My mistake…the deal is even BETTER than I thought!!

But get this…if you’re curious and that price is still too far out of your budget, head over to this page and name your price!
Reasons You Should Try Incredible Greens:
1. It tastes great…I’m sorry, but I can’t stress this enough!
2. It’s convenient for on the go, traveling, and with the mild taste can be added to just about anything!
3. Everyone could use a little “oomph” in the vegetable department every once in a while.
4. You get to be a part of helping a young entrepreneur make his way into the market.
5. And finally, you love me and you know I would NEVER steer you wrong!
All of the statements above are based on my own opinion and I was in no way compensated for the review of Incredible Greens.
Peace, love, and greens!
