I was at a wellness event a few months back when I was introduced to Realm smoothies. Intrigued by the cute packaging and free samples, I worked my way over to the table to learn more about the brand.
Realm currently offers three different flavors; Bold Cacao, Tropical Greens, and Berry Fresh. Personally, the Cacao flavor is my favorite but I wouldn’t turn down the Greens or Berry option; I’m just a sucker for cacao based drinks. After trying all of the flavors, multiple times, I was relieved when I looked at the ingredients. Realm smoothies are made up of all-natural fruits, veggies, almonds, plant protein, and coconut milk; talk about a balanced meal! Excited about the brand, I was eager to incorporate Realm into my everyday life.
Lately, my days have involved a lot of physical movement. For a solid week I would come home feeling famished. I wasn’t eating enough and if I was eating, I wasn’t getting the balance that I needed. By my second week of constantly being on my feet, I started to take Realm packs with me. Bold Cacao being my obvious first choice, I used almond milk and water with the powder. I decided to use the whole bag because I would be gone for about 4 hours and I took an RX bar as an additional snack in case I got hungry. I was very pleased with the smoothie! It tasted great and also kept me from feeling famished. I felt those midday energy dips disappear and by the time I got home for dinner; it was time for me to eat but I wasn’t starving.
For someone who is as active as I am, Realm is a great addition to my daily routine to keep me fueled. I could feel the difference on days that I would drink a Realm smoothie to days that I went without. On days that I had one, I felt like I had a base underneath me; almost like a support system. On days that I went without, I felt groggy, foggy and hangry. Let me just tell you that when I’m hangry, you do not want to be within 5 feet of me; just ask my fiancé!
I recommend Realm smoothies to anyone feeling like they are always on the go and can’t get a good meal in. Especially if you’re in the world of fitness and you need more food than the normal Joe, Realm is a great addition to your daily intake.
