Two months ago I read an article in magazine printed by Lori's Natural Foods Center in Rochester, NY, about Raw Protein, Raw Fiber and Raw Meal by Garden of Life. I had digestive problem for a long time as my late father had same problem. I decided to try to use 1/2 Raw Meal before smaller breakfast and before smaller dinner everyday. Wow. Raw Meal improves my digestive system and stools. I understand how important about probiotics and enzymes are. Of course, original one tasted funny but I get used to it. Thank you for this wonderful product.

Wow - love your new flavors and all your new complete Raw Products! I will have to try the Perfect Food Raw Super Food as it looks amazing!

I tried the vanilla once, and it had something in it that felt like pepper in my throat. Not sure what that was about. I'll have to try the chocolate!
Jim commented on Tuesday, June 12, 2012
I haven't tried the plain flavor, the chocolate tastes a little like baking chocolate and is a little gritty. I'm mixing it with almond milk. My store says they havent received the vanilla yet, i am dying to try it, since im a vanilla guy. The mrs is the chocolate person in our family.
This is just what i was looking for though. I have a nice shake at lunch and im going all afternoon and i dont need to eat anything for about 3 - 4 hours. Im a constant snacker and this is helping me from snacking my afternoon away.
Jim commented on Wednesday, June 13, 2012
i am liking the chocolate but cant wait for vanilla to hit my store!!!

can this be used for weight loss purposes i am trying to lose sixty pounds and i am looking for a great tasting meal replacement shake. if no any suggestions

frances commented on Friday, June 07, 2013
Deana! Don't know if you have tried this product yet but I was on some thyroid medication that caused me to gain about 10 pounds and I started using the raw protein and it is GREAT! It leaves me satisfied and carries me until the next meal, also seems to have a real energy surge to it. Because of this, I'm losing the weight pretty effortlessly. Good luck to you!

I was looking for a good meal replacement, did a lot of research on products & RAW original was the only one that had everything I was looking for. I am trying to lose weight but due to my chronic acid reflex & many digestion conditions I can't take just anything. Tried the original, added a piece of beet, 1 apple, 1 carrot & a bit of honey, delicious, love it. Thanks.
Marjorie commented on Thursday, February 13, 2014
P.S. Forgot to mention that for many years I have tried all kind of protein & meal replacement shakes, (used to manage health food stores) but RAW original has been the only one I have been able to take without having acid reflex or digestive problems. I'm allergic to stevia, that's the only reason I only use the original. Very happy my search for a great product is over. Thanks again.

I have a friend that just told me about this product. He absolutely loves it. He substitutes 1 or 2 meals daily with it and is the picture of health. I am going to try it during my weight loss endeavor. I like the ease of use and he says it tastes great. He uses vanilla with almond milk. He adds different fruits to the vanilla. When using the chocolate, he adds a banana. I was thinking natural peanut butter mixed with the chocolate would be good. Also, oats with the chocolate added would be good.

I am always looking for good supplements. I don't get a lot of the vital nutrients needed in a diet and so it's kind of crucial for me. I think it's important that the supplements you have don't contain a lot of sugar as well. http://nutri-biomax.com/products

I have just purchased a Raw Meal - Chocolate Cacao by Garden of Life, unfortunately I don't know the serving amount of powder per liquid. May someone help me with this?
Garden of Life commented on Sunday, April 05, 2015
Hello Claudia-You can use 1 scoop in 8oz of liquid (water, almond milk, etc) or 16 oz liquid with 2 scoops. It does thicken quickly so you will want to drink it quickly. Also, if you find it too thick, you can just add more liquid to the cup.
Theresa commented on Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Can I use this to gain weight?
Sage commented on Sunday, September 20, 2015
I am looking for an unsweetened AND without stevia version. Is there such?
Garden of Life commented on Sunday, September 20, 2015
Sage-if you are looking for a protein without stevia you can try our Plain Raw Protein. It is unsweetened.
Jose Perez commented on Sunday, September 27, 2015
I can't shew anything right now. Can I use this only, no food just this. I need a reply asap please.

I've read elsewhere that this tastes bad. That's not true, I got the chocolate flavor, doesn't even taste as anything. It just like has some smaller particlles that settle at the bottom.

Anyways a need an answer about usin only this as food.
Adam Nguyen commented on Friday, October 09, 2015

I am a fan of the Raw Meal product and have been using it for almost a year. I was wondering if there was a website with more recipes I can use for blends? I have been using a variety of frozen fruit options such as berries, peaches, mango, and pineapple blended with almond milk. I was wondering if there was other ways to get creative in my blends or if there was a recipe website that I could refer to.

Leticia commented on Monday, November 30, 2015
I've been drinking the meal replacement in cacao for about a year and the new "improved" flavor actually makes my stomach bloat and it taste worse not better. Not sure if you added a new ingredient I might be allergic to? Has it always had stevia? It does have an aftertaste where the original did not. Thanks.
