We are huge fans of Jamba Juice. From shooting wheat grass to trying new superfruits to working out with Bananaman (see above), we just love everything that they’re about. And Quaker? Well, who doesn’t love oatmeal? Not us! (Plus, they have that Bob connection. Oh yeah.) So we are super pumped to share with you how the two are coming together for delicious nutrition: there’s now a Quaker Whole Grains Boost option on the Jamba Juice menu!
If you’re as wild about oats as we are, you can now add a hit of them to your Jamba Juice smoothie. And, as we all continue to seek ways to live healthier lives, the new Quaker Whole Grains Boost provides a convenient solution when added to your favorite Jamba Juice smoothie or juice! In fact, it delivers at least 16 grams — the equivalent of one full serving — of whole grains into your belly for 60 calories and 25 cents. Just 25 cents! Now that’s a no-brainer.
In addition to boosting you up with fiber (hello, happy digestive tract!), the new Quaker Whole Grains Boost provides you with a number of essential vitamins and nutrients — and eating the recommended amount of whole grains each day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may help reduce the chances of developing several diseases, such as heart disease, and might help with maintaining a healthy weight. The 2010 US Dietary Guidelines recommend that at least half of all grains consumed be whole, yet less than 15 percent of people get the three to five minimum daily servings … Ladies, don’t be a statistic. Get your whole grains!
