When I share with people that I start my day with these plant concentrated capsules, they often say “I eat a ton of whole foods, why would I need to take them in capsules?”
Firstly, I say - GO YOU!! In a world where we are sold processed junk food at every turn, eating healthy is a challenge, and I commend you for putting time, money and effort into your health. 🙌🏻
Second, I get it. I’m all about whole foods too, and I was very skeptical when I first heard about these. So I thought I’d share a few reasons why, despite the fact that I eat as many plants as I can all day long, I still choose to start my day with these babies. Every day. And have for 8+years, and will never miss a day. 💪🏻
* Environmental toxins are increasing. Chemicals, fossil fuels, hundreds of new pesticides being produced, plastics, heavy metals, food additives, preservatives and drugs. We need to eat way more fruits and veggies than we could possibly chew each day to actually move all these toxins out of our bodies.
* Food quality is decreasing. The food available to us in our grocery stores is “jet lagged produce” - picked before it’s ripe and shipped long distances. Unless you’re only eating from the farmer’s market (and sometimes even that doesn’t matter), the quality of our soil is just not what it once was, and we’ve got to eat way more servings today to get the same amount of nutrients in the veggies our grandparents were eating.
* Variety. If you’re anything like me, you eat the same fruits and veggies over and over. I diversify from time to time, but always seem to come back to the same staples. I am not eating all the different colors of berries, or a huge variety of fruits and greens every week. The truth is that our bodies THRIVE when we eat the rainbow consistently. The more colors of fruits and veggies we can eat every day, the more fine-tuned our immune systems and the better we look and feel.
*The research behind these plant concentrated capsules blows me away - 35+ published studies!
If any of this is totally speaking to you and/or you’d like to hear more, send me a message, and I’ll send you some info.
