URBAN REMEDY REVIEW

I recently tried Urban Remedy Cindy Crawford's Essentials three day meal plan. They sent me three days worth of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks that were delicious and nutritious. The meals are designed to boost energy, lower inflammation, and provide other health benefits. It is an organic, low-glycemic, plant-based diet. Everything comes packed on ice to remain fresh and is also packaged to be grabbed on the go.

For breakfast all three days, I enjoyed a mint cacao chip smoothie with protein. It was delicious and a healthy, morning version of a mint chip milkshake. It is a blend of almond milk, banana, spinach, pea protein, chlorophyll, cacao nibs, and mint.

There were also three different green juices for snacks throughout the day. I love green juice, so this was a nice addition for me. My favorite was the "Glow" juice, which is a blend of cucumber, celery, spinach, parsley, lemon, kale, and E3 Live.



Snacks included spicy lemon sprouted almonds, hummus with veggies, and superfood trail mix. I am not a fan of almonds, nuts, or seeds, so the only snack I ate was the hummus with veggies. It was sweet potato hummus, which I had never even heard of, and I really enjoyed it.



The lunch options were Shredded Kale Salad, Zen Salad, and Super Green Quinoa. The dressings on these were delicious! I made sure to write down the combinations so that I can make them on my own. I usually am not a fan of salad, but the Zen Salad was phenomenal. 



For dinner the program includes Veggie Pad Thai, Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl, Raw Soup, and Zucchini Red & Green Pasta. To be honest the only one I was impressed with was the zucchini pasta. I need to make this on my own because it tasted just like pasta, but was a million times more delicious.



A cold brew and Matcha Au Lait were included, which I tried, but I am not a coffee or green tea fan. The cold brew was great for coffee, but still not something I would drink on a daily basis.

Overall I liked the meal plan. Three days of it was great to get me on a jump start to eating better. However, this three day plan is extremely expensive, at $224.49. That is how much I spend on groceries in about three months, not three days! For those of you who are interested in checking out more about Urban Remedy or purchasing this meal plan, click here!
