I am always looking for ways to be healthier. Everyone knows they should have 8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, but sometimes it isn’t easy. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just want french fries!! I was shopping online at Nordstrom when I saw this cool new product I had to try.
It’s called 8 greens. It comes in a little tablet that you drop into your water like alka seltzer. It fizzes too!!! I think fizzy drinks are a little more fun. For 9 calories you get spinach, wheatgrass, kale,blue green algae,spirulina, chorella, barley grass, and aloe vera. I love my green vegetables, but I don’t even know what some of that stuff is.
The directions are simple-Drop into a cup of water.
It doesn’t say whether the water should be hot or cold. The first time I tried it, I just dropped it into cold water. It tasted just okay, not bad per se, but not good either. It most closely resembles the taste of raw celery and lemon.
The second time I tried it, I used hot water. With hot water it tastes so much better!! I actually am enjoying the taste! It tastes kind of like green tea with a little lemon.
I also noticed that I had more energy after drinking it. I am not using it to replace eating vegetables, just as a nutritional boost. I am not a breakfast person and I have to force myself to eat in the morning, when I have a very busy day sometimes I skip lunch and when that happens, I just pop one of these tablets into some hot water as I’m making dinner and I don’t feel so bad about skipping a meal.
I don’t remember the exact price, but I know it was under $20.00. I highly recommend giving it a try!
