Four Delicious Flavors
RAW Meal Benefits

A convenient meal-on-the-go, RAW Meal is suitable for almost anyone including those on vegetarian or vegan diets, those on low carbohydrate diets, or those with gastrointestinal sensitivities to milk, whey, or other protein sources. RAW Meal offers the nutrition of a well-balanced, healthy meal. It’s naturally filling, satisfies hunger, and provides energy. RAW Meal is an excellent source of RAW organic, plant-based protein (34g) – including all essential amino acids. It also contains 20 Vitamin Code vitamins and minerals, RAW Food-Created Nutrients, and RAW Food-Created Minerals that enable targeted delivery and natural recognition by your body. And what about fiber? It’s an excellent source of soluble and insoluble fiber (9-16g) depending on flavor. Last but not least, RAW Meal provides live probiotics and enzymes for healthy digestion.

Really RAW & Nutritious

Garden of Life’s RAW Meal provides a naturally-satisfying and healthy RAW, USDA Certified Organic, vegan meal all wrapped up in one delicious serving.

Why RAW Matters

Heat can denature proteins, reducing their availability to your body. But Garden of Life’s USDA Certified Organic plant proteins are different – they are always gently produced at low temperatures, without any added fillers or carriers (like maltodextrin which can come from GMO corn), preserving their complete amino acid integrity and whole-food, Certified Organic, Non-GMO goodness.

    The difinitive review of…whatever is actually in this tub., March 28, 2014
    By 
    JDL303

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    First off, the short version: This is the worst tasting stuff I’ve ever actually put in my mouth, and I just ordered another tub.

    It’s amazing what the human body can get used to. Seriously. The taste is bad. Like ground up elephant dung mixed with sand.

    A little about me: 38, used to be in shape, then got kinda fat and decided to do something about it which entailed T-25 and an improved diet. I also waited to write this review until after I had finished my first tub of Raw Meal and went to regular protein powder instead so that I could compare the results. Let it be known that I am not a raw foods, vegan, vegetarian, health or excersize nut or anything like that. Just a regular guy trying to correct years of eating and drinking whatever it occoured to me at the time to consume.
    Part of my diet is a breakfast smoothie, which is where this product came in. I read the reviews (just like you) and decided to give it a go because I had no intention of drinking it straight, but instead was planning to mix it as an ingredient in my smoothie. The other things I blend in my smoothie include ice, juice, almondmilk, frozen berries, ground flax, and chia seeds. The first day I added this to my smoothie, I thought someone must have mixed up at the Raw Meal factory and put ground up latex paint in a tub and sent it over. Awful. Really bad. Anyway, I got that choked down, and decided to try it again the next day…and the day after that…and so on. Every day it got slightly less bad and eventually became something I got used to like paying taxes, going to the dentist, or spending time with my in-laws.
    The problem started one day when I made my wife’s smoothie too thick (Did I mention that I make a smoothie for both of us in the morning? The only difference between them is that she refuses to drink the Raw Meal and instead gets regular vanilla protein powder.) and had to drink it down a little to put more liquid in. OMG. It tasted like licking angel tears off a unicorn’s horn. I couldn’t believe it. So good. Then I mixed up my Raw Meal smoothie and cried.
    I finished my Raw Meal about 2 weeks ago, and went back to regular protein powder. There really is no compairison when it comes to taste. The only way they could make the Raw Meal taste worse would be if they somehow added durian fruit to it. New problem is that taste isn’t the only thing to consider here. With the protein powder, I’m HUNGRY in an hour. With the Raw Meal, I wasn’t hungry for lunch until early afternoon. Now whether this is because it keeps you from feeling hungry because it’s so great, or because it makes you a little nauseous for several hours is up for debate. All I can say is that I’m eating a bunch more food now than I was when Raw Meal was part of my diet.
    Now lets do some Pros and Cons:
    Cons:
    Absolutely everything that has to do with sensory percetion of Raw Meal. Taste, smell, sight, texture, etc. They are all really bad. Have I made that clear? Only some vegan who’d given up on life would think this stuff tastes good.
    Pros:
    Everything else. Feel better. Full for longer. Eat less. Poop better. Etc.
    It’s really a good product, it just tastes like the south end of a north bound rhino.
    A couple of things I’ve found to make it tollerable:
    Mix it with more liquid than it reccommends. This stuff is THICK and gets thicker the longer it sits. If you were to let it sit for an hour, you could probably lay bricks with it.
    Never mix a banana with it. Bananas make it WAY thicker than it already is. You’d have to eat it with a spoon.
    Drink it kinda quickly. No need to sit around and sip this stuff.
    I never even tried it without mixing it in a smoothie, and I never will. Do yourself the same favor, and at least put some juice or something with it.
    In conclusion, if taste is important to you, look elsewhere. If you can deal with putting this in your mouth and are more interested in the nutritional benefits, you can’t beat this product. Understand that your body will get used to it if you force it to. You’ll probably be glad you did.

    Healthiest Meal Replacement Ever: Strengthens the Body and Mind, May 27, 2010
    By 
    Mark Twain “Book maven” (Washington) –

    This review is from: Garden of Life Raw Meal, 2.6 lbs. (Health and Beauty)
    Like you, I have also read through existing product reviews on this item and so I felt compelled to let you in on the REAL DEAL behind Garden of Life’s, Raw Meal Replacement.

    In order to align our thinking, yes I will admit that this Meal Replacement is indeed the worst tasting meal replacement I have consumed. And I will add that the texture is somewhat grainy as well.

    My coworker decided one serving was enough for her and so the Meal Replacement was up for grabs. I consumed Garden of Life’s, Raw Meal Replacement, for lunch, five days a week for three weeks.

    The results were fantastic:
    1. Improved digestion.
    -Never upset stomach! You feel good.
    -This is a packed POWERHOUSE of raw live enzymes that support digestive health and so much more processes in the body.
    -Loaded with healthy fiber, your colon is happy, you’ll never be constipated, and in fact the good bowel movements are an indication of good gut health.

    2. Immune System benefits
    -The digestive system is the most important element of the human immune system.
    -Raw Meal promotes the immune system by aiding absorption of nutrients.
    -Loaded with foods that are nonexistant in the standard American diet, the nutritional benefits support a strong ability to fight viruses, parasites, fungi, and even damaged cells in your body.

    3. Great Energy!
    -The vitamins, complex carbohydrates, and other nutrients contribute to TRUE energy for the brain and body.
    -Feel a positive mood because my body is satisfied.
    -I stayed full for at least three hours afterwards.

    4. Fat-Loss
    -I’ll admit, I didn’t lose any weight.
    -I actually stayed the same weight.
    -In fact, I burned fat and GAINED lean-muscle.

    5. Raw Nutrients that you won’t find ANYWHERE else!
    -You are what you eat
    -I want to be strong, healthy, and ALIVE!
    -Raw Meal helps me achieve a greater state of health.

    To sum it up…

    If you are looking for a delicious meal replacement, look elsewhere.

    But if you are one who truly cares about their health, you can join me in reaping the benefits from Garden of Life’s, Raw Meal.

    There’s too much disease, obesity, and other problems in the world. I strongly believe that the Raw Meal Replacement can be a powerful part of any healthy lifestyle.

    I can’t believe this tastes GOOD!, June 26, 2012
    By

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I am a huge fan of the Original Raw Meal but the taste definitely left something to be desired. The new Vanilla Raw Meal tastes great! I only use one scoop (to keep the thickness down a bit and to stretch out the canister) with almond milk and a little ice. I think having it super cold improves the taste.

    I will continue to drink the Original for breakfast (mixed with OJ) since I’m addicted but now I have a great lunch substitute as well!

    Highly recommend.

    ***EDIT – I recommended this to a friend and she HATED it. Was very mad at me for saying it tastes good…SO I would like to say that this tastes good to me but I really like healthy things. This does NOT taste like a vanilla milk shake. For those of you familiar with Raw Meal, you will recognize the gritty texture (though I feel it is less so than the original) and it still has a “green” taste which is kind of weird mixed with the vanilla. Again, I repeat, this is NOT going to taste like ice cream. This is a healthy alternative to the chemical-laden meal replacement shakes that many people drink but the taste will be an adjustment.***
