Ok, not really – I’m not that kind of girl!! I’m referring to pHresh greens. Mine arrived in the mail merely hours after I posted about alkalizing your body. I’ve had a chance to try it in a couple smoothies and even mixed into my overnight oats. Here is a little review for you!So what is pHresh greens you ask?! Well, it is a super food (definition of super food: it’s among the world’s most nutrient-rich, dense and beneficial foods on earth), a green powder that you simply add to your favourite smoothie, glass of water or juice. It is a complete daily serving of raw greens in just 1 teaspoon!
“It is made with 16 raw ingredients that were carefully selected for their high pH levels. It is a full spectrum alkalizing superfood blend of energy rich vegetables, cereal grasses and sea algae. pHresh greens is highly bio-available and provides your body with a rich natural source of vitamins, trace minerals, chlorophyll and other phytonutrients beneficial to health. It is also made with TRUE INTENTION ensuring that you will get all the ingredients’ nutritional benefits without any harmful chemicals, additives, preservatives or fillers. Its all natural organic ingredients have been carefully slow dried to help retain its life energy. pHresh greens is made from the natural produce itself, thus ensuring you are getting the vital nutrients of the ingredients from a natural state, it’s just like harvesting produce from your own organic vegetable garden.”
I added it to my regular breakfast smoothie and mixed into my overnight oats and did not notice a taste at all. However, in the container, the powder has a distinct “grassy” smell to it. I tried it on its own and found it to be quite strong! I will not be adding this to just a plain glass of water, unless I plugged my nose and slammed it back. In a smoothie, it is nearly undetectable. Strong flavours like banana and pineapple help hide the taste so you don’t feel like you’re chomping on your lawn.

How to Use
They recommend having 3 tsp a day for the first week to alkalize your body, then switch to 1 tsp daily. Again, simply add it to a smoothie, glass of water or juice and down the hatch!
Overall, I think this is a great way to incorporate more raw, green foods into your diet. It’s healthy, full of nutrients, and all natural. I’ve only been using it for a few days but I have noticed an increase in energy; no more mid-afternoon slump around 3pm. My workouts feel more intense too, I definitely have more energy at the gym. I’m sure it’s doing a great job of alkalizing my bod as we speak! So go on and get yourself some raw greens; your body will thank you 🙂
