  • Carl Johnston - Best bang for your buck!I have experimented with many meal replacements over the years, normally I do not use them for meal replacements unless I have to but rather after a workout when I need something a little easier to digest about an hour later following some fruit. Also I tend to supplement a "not so healthy" trip to the university cafe to make sure I am getting all the correct nutrients. The 33g of vegan protein is a major plus, and the sugar should not be an issue unless your diabetic considering the source of the sugars. I take this replacement along with Vega when I can afford it during University, and when I am home as well. When I am at University I drink these shakes with just water, and when I am home I drink them in a smoothie, so I will comment on both scenarios.

    As far as pricing goes, RAW Meal is truly a winner in my eyes. Yes, you can find cheaper meal replacements that taste a bit better but of lesser quality, and you can find something of similar quality that tastes a little better but is more expensive, but this is perfect for what I am willing to spend and what I want out of this type of product.

    The major con I have found with this meal replacement is the taste and texture, which can improeved in a couple of ways but don't expect anything miraculous. You can eventually work up to taking it with just water and a bit of Super Seed (also made by garden of life) I found masks the taste well, or some Organic Cocoa Powder, anything really to mask the taste a bit. I suspect the best way to mask the taste would be with a powerful blender, some milk or milk substitute such as rice milk, some fruit, and some cocoa powder. I will update this review with any recipes or tricks I come across. At University I do not have these resources available to me so I just mix with water. Out of the three main meal replacements, RAW Meal, Vega, and The Ultimate Meal, I would say that RAW Meal is the toughest to take down with water, the other two I do not find to be much of a challenge. The first week of taking raw meal my gag reflex almost kicked in a few times, but now it's not really a big deal, which I think is a way of my body saying keep it up, and keep the good nutrients coming! When I make smoothies at home with Vega Natural flavor I crave the taste and texture, this is not the case with RAW Meal.

    I particularly appreciate the sprouted ingredients. More specifically I am glad that they decided to include spirulinna and chlorella which are very high in protein (spirulinna is 70% protein and a perfect vegan source of protein and enzymes) and is very important for Athletes in particular. I consider this higher quality protein than concentrated isolate proteins such as ON Whey loaded with milk products that 75% of population cannot digest anyways.

    +All organic ingredients.
    +Completely raw.
    +Contains 100% of 16 key nutrients in RAW Vitamin Code, not synthetic. (Eliminates the need for buying a multivitamin, better than a synthetic multivitamin in my opinion.)
    +All enzymes intact (The fact that nothing is cooked provides the enzymes necessary for proper digestion.)
    +Sprouted grains and beans (Easier to digest, and alive.)
    +Amazing source of greens (I know myself I have trouble getting enough greens in my diet which contain so many enzymes that are needed for digestion.)
    +Contains some Probiotics (I love Garden of Life's Primal Defense so when I am not taking it this is a great way to get a small serving comparatively.)
    +Gluten free.
    +Dairy free.
    +GMO free.
    +Lactose free.
    +Very filling (The most filling meal replacement I have tried!)
    +Quick and easy.
    +Price. (Best bang for your buck in my opinion, lowest I have paid so far is 28.99, however I have not seen it drop that low in a while, and I consider anything around $40 to still be of great value.)

    +Taste. (see blurb in opening paragraphs)
    +Smell. (you get used to it after a while)

    If your looking for a meal replacement that is going to help you achieve maximum health and vitality, and are willing to sacrifice a bit in the taste department for a quality product that is going to be easy on your wallet (taking all factors into consideration) then I recommend you give RAW meal a try.
