In my arsenal

Posted on Updated on


As some of you who’ve been reading a while know, I’ve got a whole list of cold-fighting weapons I turn to when I feel something coming on. One of my favorites is green juice, but forking over eight bucks a pop can be rough on the wallet, so I tend to only buy it when I’m desperate for a last-ditch pick-me-up. Eventually I’ll get a juicer, but I have other priorities right now.

So you can imagine my curiosity when I saw this Super Green Drink Powder at Trader Joe’s not too long ago. While it’s not particularly new, it’s new to me. After a few weeks of talking myself out of trying it, I finally picked up a container last time I was there. When I woke up on Sunday morning feeling a little under the weather (a lot of fun but late nights recently, too much work, not enough rest, etc), I was so glad I had it. Though I don’t believe in miracles, I do believe that a mega-dose of nutrients can help in times of depletion…

The nutrition stats are not too shabby either…

Though I just mixed this with water and drank it down before rushing out the door, I imagine it will be fantastic in smoothies. We’ll see if it helps me feel better, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed. A little optimism goes a long way!

Do you have any secret weapons? Are you a fan of drink powders?

    I am definitely interested in knowing if this works or helps in any way. I despise taking medications that get you all drowsy and drugged up feeling.
    I am all for drink powders. I use them in my daily training. I am all for protein powders and carbohydrate drink mixes like Accelerade for when I lift or do any endurance training.
    I look forward to hearing the benefits if any from your drink.

      I don’t know if I’d use this every day as a supplement since I eat a lot of veggies and already take a probiotic, but as far as using it when I feel under the weather, I definitely feel better than I did yesterday, so who knows, this could have helped a little : )
