How do you get your greens?

How do you get your greens in? I do it anyway I can. When I first started on our nutritional journey, I learned to use the blender and I worked as much good stuff as I could into the shakes I made. I have to admit that many of those shakes were forced down, because they didn’t taste too great. Our oldest children can remember and tell you about the forced “shots” of barleygreen and other green powder mixes. Now I watch our oldest daughter at the blender. She throws all kinds of stuff in, but her motivation is to have clear skin, which she does. I love knowing that she’s creating a healthy body too.

Green drinks and shakes have come a long way! We don’t have to force down those green drinks that may cause us to gag. I have been privileged to take part in a clinical study for SolleLean Greens. It is a 100% plant-based blend of  Adaptogens, a daily tonic blend of herbs, and a dynamic sustaining blend of sprouts, hemp and fruit. In keeping with the commitment Solle has made to target the physical, intellectual and emotional issues people commonly face in our society, it has been formulated with this in mind. Each ingredient was selected mainly for its value in helping assist the body with sustained nourishing energy, instead of depleting energy like a stimulant, helping support the thyroid and adrenal system, helping balance (not boost) the immune system for better performance, and helping protect the mind and body from the environment.

This is my first week starting, but I love the blend. When I opened the bag, I immediately smelled the fruit. On the first day I mixed mine with a few bananas, almond milk and a scoop of collagen. I since have been adding in some berries and a handful of spinach. You can never get too many greens, wink, wink. The fruits in the blend really cover up the taste of the herbs, so it has an extremely pleasant taste. This is definitely something I’ll be able to sneak in to a kids shake without it having a strong green flavor they’ll detect.

The study is a six week study that will gather data from about 100 people. It is hypothesized that drinking the SolleLean Greens daily will result in positive effects on mood, physical activity and health, and mental health. Previous investigations have already indicated that meal replacements are a generally effective and established method of losing weight and improving metabolic variables. These past studies have focused primarily on calorie restriction as a method to create these outcomes. The focus of this study is on the nutrition, tonic herbs and adaptogenic herbs in the SolleLean drink.

The bad news is this isn’t available yet, they are gathering the data to have when it’s released. The good news is that Solle does have other tasty drink blends that focus on the mind/body connection, including herbs and adaptogens that have these benefits.

One of my favorite places to learn about the benefits of many different kinds of adaptogens is Adaptogenie. If you haven’t stepped into the world of adaptogens, now’s the time! If you have, leave me a comment and tell me about the benefits you are receiving.
