Newbie – A new on-the-go item

                              Activz Whole 9

I was walking through my local grocery store when I passed a man trying to sell a  “healthy” drink.  I laughed at he thought in my mind and started walking right by.  I wasn’t even going to stop, but my curiosity got the best of me. (and maybe I was looking for a fight) I couldn’t wait to ask him questions about his so called “whole” drink supplement. I started by asking for a list of actual ingredients… he flipped over a box and showed me the list: grapes (every part), carrot, beet, apple, broccoli, cranberry… and more, all organic. The company he is part of takes it from start to finish.  I have to be honest, I was pretty impressed. So what now, I asked him where they get the fruits and veggies they use. He started naming the exact farms and organic farmers from east to west coast. I was even more impressed. I settled down and decided to be on his side. We talked for about 45 minutes about the importance of a Whole Food Plant Based diet. Then I tried his drink…. I knew it wouldn’t taste good, It wasn’t even green! To my pleasant surprise it was delicious. And I bought a box on the spot. I have used a couple over the last week when I have been in a bind, running Christmas errands and taking kids to and from their various activities. It had made a great lunch on the go for me. I looked up their website when I got home and was thrilled when I saw clips of Dr. Campbell and The China Study references.  I would say, give it shot and let me know what you think.
