I’m always looking for ways to pack more nutrition into my day–especially when I’m busy! While I love eating lots of fruits and veggies to get my daily fill of vitamins, minerals, and fiber sometimes I need a little extra boost for those times when I don’t have the chance to grocery shop and stock up on fresh foods or to prep all my food for healthy meals for the week. A few weeks ago, the kind people from a company called “Skoop” reached out to me asking if I would review one of their products called Skoop A-Game. I had never heard of Skoop before, which makes sense because this is a new company based out of Boulder, CO (<–Colorado!). So, you are probably wondering what Skoop is too! Skoop A-Game is a non-GMO, super-food powdered formula that is rich in antioxidants, adaptogens, and probiotics. There is no dairy, soy, or gluten in this powder (which makes it allergen-free!!) and Skoop recommends using it to fight stress, bad gut bacteria, and inflammation. All of that sounds great, but I wanted to know what was actually IN this powder. This is where it really gets good. The powder is made up of:
- Super Veggies (broccoli, carrots, spinach, parsley, beets, and kale)
- Antioxidants (rosemary powder extract, green tea powder extract, etc)
- Adaptogen herbs
- Greens (barley grass, wheat grass, spirulina, chlorella)
- Fruit (apple, blueberry, pomegranate, acai, cranberry, goji berry)
- Fiber Blend (flax seed, chia seed)
- Other ingredients (probiotics and also stevia and honey, etc for flavor!)
Now we’re talking…those are real food ingredients and that makes me very excited This isn’t a meal replacement shake, but it’s the perfect add-in to oats, smoothies, or just plain almond milk to get an extra punch of nutrients into my day…which can be very helpful during busy times in my life (like now!) Something else cool? 10% of the profit made from each bag is donated to a national nonprofit that provides fresh produce to schools. Love that! So, the folks at scoop sent me a large bag of the Skoop A-Game in Sweetgreens and some smaller packets of Chocofresh which has a slight cocoa flavor. Skoop recommended simply mixing a scoop of Skoop into a cup of almond milk… And it tasted pretty good! I’m not going to lie and say it was AMAZING…it did taste a little “green” but knowing that I was putting all of these veggies, herbs, fruits, and greens into my body made the flavor worth it. The way that I enjoyed my Skoop most was in my morning oatmeal with blueberries and bananas. While it didn’t look very appetizing (think GREEN oatmeal!) it did have a pleasant sweet flavor because the Skoop is slightly sweet due to the honey, agave, goji, and blueberries. Now for the FUN part–Skoop and I are giving away a bag of Skoop A-Game to ONE Treble in the Kitchen Reader to try for themselves!
