Sun Chlorella Review & Giveaway

Fact: I don't eat a lot of vegetables.  Greens in particular.  Bad example running mama!  Oops.  The thing is, vegetables just don't appeal to me, especially when I was prego last year.  The thought of even being near a salad made me gag.  Weird, I know.  Growing up I ate a lot of my vegetables, simply because I wouldn't be excused from the dinner table if I didn't.  So, I'm hoping to change my ways a little and get some of that veggie goodness in my diet.  Well guess what?  Sun Chlorella is helping me get in my greens, ninja style.

What in the world is Sun Chlorella, you ask?  In a nutshell, it is Nature's Perfect Superfood.
"...it contains the widest range of essential nutrients available in any single food source, including potassium, all of the B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and iron, 18 vital amino acids, beta carotene and lutein.  In fact, to get the same amount of nutrients at the grocery store that are found in Sun Chlorella, you would have to spend more than $200 and carry home more than 20 pounds of food."
Woah.  That is a pretty good definition of a superfood.

The best part of "eating" my veggies minus the veggie is that I can take Sun Chlorella by tablet form or in granule form.  In all honesty, I'd much rather down a tablet than drink something that is green (it's one of those weird perceptive things, like when Heinz tried out purple ketchup...um, no thanks).  Travis and I have been taking the tablets, and he's noticed a little more energy in the morning.  I, on the other hand, tend to our 6 month old daughter at night, so I'm always without energy. ;)  But I'm sure it is helping me somewhat!

Both of us were a little apprehensive about drinking water with the diluted granules: it is a deep green color and doesn't smell appetizing (remember, I'm a green veggie-o-phobe), but blended in a fruit smoothie was a much easier way to sneak in the granules.  A note: if you like wheatgrass juice, then this is very similar to that in taste.

Overall, I'm totally digging the tablets!  Bring 'em on!  I like sneaking veggies into my diet.  To each his/her own, right?  With all of the amazing health benefits and vitamins included in Sun Chlorella, it's hard not to like it.

WIN IT!  --->  2 lucky peeps will win a gift pack containing 20 packets of granules and "A" tablets courtesy of Sun Chlorella.
