I’m participating in the Evolution Fresh blogger campaign and received compensation as part of the program.
“It looks a little like sewer sludge.”
That’s the initial reaction of most people who first see a green juice. Let’s face it – it’s GREEN. As it should be because it’s made with ALL the greens.
What’s wrong with green? To me it screams FRESH!
Recently, I linked up with Evolution Fresh in their #3DaystoGreen campaign. It’s the start of the new year and new goals. One of my goals for this year is to cut back on my random snacking. As you know, I’ve been participating in Laura’s 21 Day Reset and have been happy with the results so far. My snack cravings for breads, crackers, chips and cereal have mostly disappeared. I’ve been focusing on eating real food which ultimately means my veggie eating has increased. I thought I was good before but now I’m really good.
Evolution Fresh juices – Sweet Greens and Lemon, Essential Greens, Organic Sweet Greens and Ginger, and Smooth Greens – have over one pound (ONE POUND!) of green vegetables in every bottle and less than ten grams of sugar per serving. And there is nothing added – no preservatives, no sweeteners, no flavors – not even natural ones. All you get is pure, delicious juice.
You can choose from four delicious flavors – Sweet Greens and Lemon, Essential Greens, Organic Sweet Greens and Ginger, or Smooth Greens. My local Whole Foods only had two varieties available – everything else was sold out!
I took the challenge and began my first morning with a Sweet Greens and Lime. I am not going to lie – it was very green. I could taste a lot of parsley, which isn’t my favorite green. In my opinion, if you are not used to green juice, it’s not the first one to try.
At work, I have fallen into the habit of having a cup of coffee around 10:30 every morning. I decided that instead I’d have a juice. The second day I popped open a Sweet Greens and Ginger.YUM! It still had all the green taste but way less parsley. This was by far my favorite.
By day three, I had another Sweet Greens and Lime as an afternoon pick me up. It definitely gave me a little extra zing to power through the rest of my workday.
I can’t say I noticed a whole of difference in my overall being. I tend to eat a lot of kale, spinach and other greens everyday anyway. I did feel like it gave me an energy boost particularly during the afternoon slump.
