One of the single best success tips that I can give anyone is to focus on HIGH QUALITY SHORTCUTS. These are things that make healthy eating almost a no-brainer.
I realized this talking to my friend Julie who I have known since college. Julie has more on her plate than anyone I know. Some of it she chose to take on, some of it was thrust upon her. But she deals, she’s great and I love her.
She hears all the things I have to teach her, but is always saying, “Jackie, can’t you just put all that in a little package and send it to me.”
So I am always thinking about Julie’s struggles, and how she needs things made as easy as possible.
The things that we recommend to you here at PEERtrainer- the ideas, products, books etc —these are all things that do ourselves and recommend to our friends and family.
We came across something new to us, and incredibly unique and special.
And Julie, if you are reading this email, this is literally for you.
We all know that we need to eat more fruits and vegetables to improve the nutrient density of our diet. As Dr. Fuhrman has taught us, our health and weight is determined in a large part by the amount of micronutrients we eat.
Micronutrients are the things in plants, fruits and vegetables. For a variety of reasons (usually time and convenience) we all (even me) have a hard time getting enough in our diet.
We recently came across a new product called Athletic Greens, which we believe to be the single best micronutrient supplement out there.
We were introduced to them by another company who said that they decided not to go into this market for a greens-based “mega nutrient” supplement- because Athletic Greens was so good
there was literally no room to improve upon it.
But my friend Julie is just not going to do that.
Julie wants something that tastes good. And she probably wants it available in small packages because she is always on the move.
(Jules- get this stuff in packs right here. And keep a container
of the stuff for the rest of your posse.)
What Is In Athletic Greens?
There are 75 ingredients that contain absolutely no synthetic chemicals, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners of any kind, no GMO’s, herbicides, or pesticides, no wheat, dairy, gluten, corn, lactose, sucrose, dextrose, egg, yeast, or peanuts and no animal products.
The Ingredients Are In 4 Categories
Alkaline, RAW, Extremely Nutrient-Dense Greens.
This is nature’s bounty, a careful selection of the highest quality, highest efficacy superfoods on the planet, naturally packed with goodness. These ingredients are freeze-dried to preserve their molecular structure. They are then cold-milled (hot-milling damages enzymes and nutrients) and blended gently into the formula.
- Nutrient-Dense, Natural Extracts, Herbs, and Antioxidants.
They are extracted from high quality, raw foods, providing naturally occurring antioxidants, herbs, and phytonutrients. ONE serving of Athletic Greens contains the antioxidant equivalent of 10-12 servings of fruit and vegetables (ORAC 5000).
- Pre and Pro Biotics, Naturally Occurring Digestive Enzymes.
These ingredients help your gut function properly, thereby letting you absorb nutrients better. (By the way, once you open your Athletic Greens, please keep it in the fridge or freezer).
Essential for body functions. Magnesium alone is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in the human body, from maintaining muscle and nerve function to supporting protein synthesis. Likewise, chromium and vanadium help regulate blood sugar levels and insulin, while zinc and selenium control a host of biological functions ranging from maintaining healthy hormone levels to regulating the immune system. The challenge is absorbing them in sufficient quantity and quality, especially for athletes consuming a nutrient-parched, over-farmed diet. Athletic Greens takes care of your mineral requirements. Every mineral in this formula was selected for optimal quality and optimal absorption.
Great For Smoothies:
Each serving is one heaping tablespoon. For those of you who are already blending greens into your smoothies you might want to try adding a half-tablespoon to the mix.
This helps to turn the shakes into a more all in one thing without the added sugar.
