Amazing Grass Amazing Meal vs. Purium L.O.V.E. Super Meal
Prior to my Purium 10-Day Transformation Cleanse [READ MY 10 DAY DIARY HERE] I essentially ate a mixture of junk and healthy food. Part of my healthy daily routine was a smoothie made with Amazing Grass Amazing Meal, frozen berries and unsweetened almond milk. Purium also makes a meal substitute called L.O.V.E. that seemed to have similar properties to the Amazing Meal.
There are several reasons I decided to do this comparison: 1. I like Purium products and would like to continue using them – but their shipping is rather high ($14.95 to Hawaii – its either free or much cheaper to the continental U.S.). 2. I like the taste of Amazing Grass. 3. They seemed very similar and I already have a small stockpile of Amazing Meal.
In this post, we take a closer look at what both products have to offer, ingredients and a side-by-side comparison of price and nutritional values.

Amazing Meal Chocolate Infusion is one of my favorite meal replacements since it doesn’t have any weird chemicals or protein taste. I recently bought the Chocolate Peppermint (holiday edition) and its AMAZING! I blend it with unsweetened almond milk, a scoop of Amazing Greens Chocolate Green Superfood, frozen blueberries or 1/2 banana and ice. I really like how natural and clean it tastes (yummy) and it keeps me satisfied till lunch.

I haven’t tried the L.O.V.E. Super Meal but it has a great list of ingredients and you can add your own flavoring to it. They sell flavoring or you can add flavored stevia drops. It has 2x the protein, but also has 2x the calories and fat. It also has less sugars, but not enough to be a deciding point. I’m sure its similar in texture and taste (expect a little “green” with both) to the Amazing Grass – so it really comes down to price. It’s substantially more, especially if you live in Hawaii and have to pay about $14 in shipping.
If you just finished the Purium 10-Day Transformation Cleanse and ready for the next step, I think its possible to do a 20 day follow up to the Purium 10-Day Transformation Cleanse without purchasing additional products. You can have 1-2 servings of the Amazing Meal in place of meals per day or as a snack. As long as you stick to fresh fruits, vegetables and lean non-animal protein plus minimal healthy snacks as well, you’ll continue to lose weight and get healthy.
