I love to try anything new and healthy. Especially if it’s all natural and organic-hippie-fun. Especially if it’s easy. Extra especially if it makes me feel good. So, I have recently discovered what millions of other people have probably known about for years, green super-food drinks.
My discovery stemmed from my sister giving me a week’s worth of the health supplement, Kyani, to try. Though I liked the product, it’s a little expensive, so I decided to see what else was out there.
I ventured out to my local organic foods store where I told them I was looking for a “natural”, “organic” liquid nutritional supplement, in the hopes of finding something similar to the Kyani product. Being new to the natural-supplement world, I was now overwhelmed with options. In a good way, to be sure. I ended up checking out the green super-food powder drinks.
I started off with Garden of Life’s Perfect Food Raw Organic Green Super Food.
If you have never drank anything like this before, it is a very different experience. The powder is like dehydrated, ground up grass and veggies (which is pretty much what it is). That is also what it smells and tastes like. I bought the apple flavour and mixed it in a small glass of apple juice.
From what I have read, none of these green superfood drinks really taste GOOD. Some are just more bearable than others. My research also led me to many stated opinions that this particular product isn’t one of the best tasting. But it also seems to be a pretty good source of lots of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics, and other good stuff. So, I suffer through the taste once a day.
I have now been drinking my organic green powdered drink for about a month.
I really feel great. And I really shouldn’t feel so good right now. Lately I’ve had a lot going on. I’ve been busy and stressed and busy. But there’s many times during the past few weeks when I have noticed that I have energy when I would think I would be tired and worn. I actually feel healthier. I’ve noticed other things like my fingernails look thicker and healthier. My appetite also doesn’t seem to be as ferocious. The drink doesn’t seem to curb my appetite. I just think my body’s getting the nutrients it needs, so it’s less likely to feel cravings or want to eat for lack of energy.
I think the green super-food drink is a great idea. It’s highly unlikely that our everyday diet provides us with all those plant-based nutrients that our bodies crave. This simple, natural, organic product helps fill that gap. There are many products out there to try and much literature to help you pick. I have also read recommendations to switch products routinely to help get a more diverse range of nutrients. I started with Perfect Food Raw, but I have also tried Concentrace Greens Pak and I would like to try Amazing Grass next.
For more information, these are my two favourite websites:
If you love things that are healthy and make you feel good, I would highly recommend giving this a try. The taste might not be that great, but the effects really seem to be worth it!
