I Love Me Some Superfood!

Superfood drinks are all the craze and kind-of cool (if you’re a kid – especially a boy)! On a day like today (April Fool’s) you can easily say you are drinking some slimy grass you just mixed up or something! But in reality, you are drinking something that actually tastes really good but just looks completely gross. It just so happens to be really healthy for you as well (sorry kids). I didn’t pick up on it until last year – because yes, for one, I thought it would taste like it looks (like grass). Thank goodness it didn’t though and I’ve been drinking them since. My favorite is from Odwalla and my second choice is Naked (great name too)!

Smoothies made with great stuff like apples, peaches, mangos, kiwis, strawberries, bananas, soy, wheat grass, artichokes, barley grass and wheat sprouts – many of which help lower your risk of heart disease, are also antioxidants and can even help lower your cholesterol! What an easy and fun way to keep healthy! Drink up!

And if you would like to check your cholesterol you can right here. It’s a quick and inexpensive way to find out if you should be changing your habits a bit, like perhaps drinking more Superfood. Our Lipid panel test is recommended if you are overweight, get little to no exercise, have diabetes, eat foods high in fat or if you have a family history of high cholesterol or heart disease.
