At first glance, you might think that our Chef V Organic Green Drink is simply a green juice. It’s not. We’ve named it GreenDrink for a very good reason.
The seven certified organic super greens in our Green Drink are cold-blended, not juiced or pressed. Why is this important? It comes down to nutrition.
To make green juice, machines use a centrifuge or press to extract the liquid from the vegetables. This sounds great, until you realize that the process leaves behind a pulp. That pulp is full of valuable fiber that supports digestive health, lowers blood cholesterol and helps control blood sugar. That fiber also keeps you feeling full. That’s the beneficial characteristic that leads researchers to suggest that fiber intake aids in weight loss.
Given all these health benefits, we feel that it is such a shame to lose something with so much nutritional value. We knew we could do better. That is why our Green Drink is different from a green juice.
For every glass, we combine:
- green kale
- black kale
- collard greens
- dandelion greens
- green chard
- curly parsley
- green lettuce
- a little apple for sweetness
- filtered water for absorption
Then we cold-blend with ice. And blend. And blend.
What you get is not a green juice. It’s a blended plant-based drink with nutrients that begin in the vegetable and get transported to the glass. Our method of cold-blending protects the plant fibers from heat that can destroy valuable nutrients.
When you increase your fiber intake, you might not notice changes in health indicators like blood cholesterol and blood sugar right away. Those can take time. But one area where you will notice a big difference is fullness. Our Green Drink doesn’t make you feel like you are starving your way through a detox or a cleanse. That’s due to keeping that healthy fiber in the drink instead of throwing it out in the trash.
When you feel full, not only do you eat less; you feel better. You have the energy to exercise and the mental concentration to focus on important tasks. Your body is getting the nutrients it needs to be your best self. Health is a beautifully connected circle where one practice leads to the next. It’s a ripple effect that can be as easy as starting every morning with a Green Drink.
That’s why you’ll often hear us say that it’s the green drink that will change your life. A green juice is a short-term fix. A green drink is a long-term solution.
