As many of you know, I have been participating in my own Great Greens Experiment for the past couple of months. I have been drinking the Greens Plus Wild Berry Burst on an almost daily basis for the last few weeks and I am finally at the end of my bottle. I came into this experiment with an open mind for the most part but I have to admit that I really have never enjoyed the taste of any greens product and was skeptical about whether or not I could make it through an entire bottle. I did manage to make it through the bottle but I still do not enjoy the taste. I feel like the Greens Plus powder definitely gave me additional energy and I felt healthy drinking it but I didn't notice any mind blowing changes.
I never was able to get used to the taste of the greens but I found that if I mixed the greens powder with apple juice it was much better. I still had to pound it back like a shot but at least I didn't gag while drinking it. Now, I have to tell you that both Mel and H enjoy the taste of the Greens Plus products and drink it straight with no problems but I am just not as brave as them. Either that or they do not have working taste buds!! In all honesty, I would probably not continue drinking the Greens Plus powder because I do not enjoy drinking it. It definitely has health benefits and is an awesome product nutritionally but I do not like to force myslef to eat or drink anything. I think that you should enjoy your food and not have to gag things down just because it is good for you.
I do have to tell you though that I am absolutely addicted to all of the Greens Plus bars. I will happily get my greens from any one of their bars because they are amazing. The protein bars are my absolute favorite bar ever and I spend quite a bit of our food budget on them each week.
So, to sum up the results of the Great Greens Experiment, the products are awesome and have a wonderful nutritional profile. If you can handle the taste of the greens powder then I definitely recommend it. However, if drinking the greens grosses you out then go for the bars because they are absolutely amazing!
Alright, well I am off to work for now. Have a great day guys and make sure you find time to laugh today. Laughter and smiles make every day brighter!
