11/15/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 17. November 2013 17:38

I recently tried a new product that I read about in one of my workout magazines called Macro Greens.  It is a powder that you mix with a sports drink, or orange juice or any liquid, and it provides the raw food nutrition of five servings of fruits and vegetables.  It optimizes pH for stimulant-free energy and good health.  It is also low-carb, and gluten free. 

It contains vitamin C, A, B-12, calcium citrate, small amounts of magnesium, organic barley grass powder, organic spirulina powder, chorella-cracked cell, non-dairy probiotics, antioxidents, natural fibers like apple pectin, apple fiber, organic flax seed meal and some supporting herbs like carrot juice powder, watercress juice powder, yucca juice powder, and beet juice powder.

It looks awful as a gross shade of green.  But I’ve gotten my kids to drink reduced serving portions, and my husband is enthusiastic about getting vegetables this way.

I’ll keep you posted if I think it’s worth the money (approx. $32.00 for one month’s supply).
