We received an enthusiastic email from a new fan of Green Foods, Vincenzo, who discovered our products recently.  For a company that has been in business over 30 years, we are fortunate to have loyal, long-time customers as well as new ones who are happy to have discovered us.  We asked him if we could share his email on our blog and he was happy to — thanks, Vincenzo!

And if any of you would like to share your stories like he did, please do!  You will be rewarded with a gift and our sincerest appreciation!  Send them to: tessa@greenfoods.com or post it to our comment section below.

Vincenzo’s letter:

My partner and I started using Green Foods two months ago and we are feeling great!  We started by taking Green Magma every morning, mixed with water and almost immediately our mood and energy was improved.  I no longer find my energy level  “crashing” in mid-morning and I’ve even been able to cut back on my coffee intake, as I no longer need it as much to wake up! Although my partner prefers the original Green Magma, lately I’ve switched to the Magma Plus, which has an extra touch of sweetness from all natural Stevia and so appeals to my sweet tooth while providing all the same benefits and more.  We’ve also started adding Chia seeds to salads and other foods and we really like the taste and texture they provide, not to mention all the added fiber, protein and fatty acids.

I do a lot of weight lifting and cardio daily at the gym and have been using protein shakes for years, but none of the products I’ve used before compare with True Vitality shakes! Not only do they give me an excellent source of protein, but all the additional vitamins, minerals and Omega 3s really contribute to excellent post-workout recovery.  All the protein shakes I’d used before, based on whey powder, always left a bad taste in my mouth and bad breath afterwards – not so with True Vitality!  The plant based protein leaves my mouth feeling and tasting clean and fresh. And that’s how Green Foods leaves you feeling too – healthy and fresh inside and out!  Thanks, Green Foods!

This is a great opportunity for us to express our gratitude to all of you – both new and old fans – who purchase our products online or from a national store like Whole Foods or The Vitamin Shoppe, or your local natural foods store like MOM’s Organic Market in Washington D.C. or Rainbow Grocery Co-op in San Francisco.  Every day we are very grateful you experience wonderful benefits from the work we do to create high-quality products to promote well-being on the planet.

We always look forward to hearing from you.  Keep shining!

The best view - from Dad's shoulders!

Father’s Day is right around the corner.  So, Dads, let’s take a moment to see how you can be good to yourself by making sure that you’re in top-notch shape health-wise. Adopting this short, easy-to-do list of habits as a guiding principle can be key to a healthier and happier life, and add more years to enjoy your children, grandchildren as well as accomplish your bucket list.

Here’s what you need to know:

Get movin‘:  If you’re not already exercising, now is the time to go for it with summer approaching and light-filled days. It doesn’t have to be for a long time – say, ½ hour each day on a swift-paced walk, exercise bike, or a swim.  The good news is that exercise—especially the short, intense bursts in circuit or interval training—helps maintain and develop muscles, strength and stamina, and increase metabolism, according to a recent study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.  It will improve your attitude, too.

Eat right: Ding! Ding!  That’s where Green Foods comes in.

You don’t need trendy diets or expensive exercise programs to tell you that when you eat healthy meals, and nourish your body with superfoods like premium barley grass juice powder in our Green Magma or Magma Plus, you feel better, inside and out. Make an effort to blend a smoothie in the morning with True Vitality which is our plant based protein powder and so much easier to digest than animal protein (and it tastes great!).  Add some Chia seeds to get an additional boost in energy and Omega-3 oils (find us on Facebook for great smoothie recipes!).  Pick up a piece of fruit in the afternoon and do your best to let go of sneaking in those caffeinated drinks and overly processed snacks.

On a more serious note, in 2010, nearly 218,000 men in the United States were diagnosed with prostate cancer, a largely curable challenge when caught in its early stages, according to the American Cancer Society. So why not eat well to prevent potential cancer cells from becoming a bigger problem?

Go in for a checkup: Dr. Mehmet Oz, a professor of cardiac surgery at Columbia University, shared on The Oprah Winfrey Show that men who consider themselves “macho” are 50 percent less likely to seek preventative health care. Regular checkups can help you catch a whole array of physical ailments that may not present symptoms until much later. At the very least, here’s what you need to get checked: blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, prostate, thyroid, and colon.

Let go: Fathers are much less likely than mothers to take care of their emotional selves, yet men face just as much family, finance, and work stress as women do.  It’s important to make an effort to do things that help you unwind and let go of the day’s pressures: connect with friends, go out on a date with your partner, take a yoga class, learn meditation as a relaxation tool, or read a good book and don’t forget to b-r-e-a-t-h-e.

And remember that any time you stumble, it’s just another opportunity to pick yourself back up.  Be easy on yourself!

We are offering $5 off our products in our online store through June 22nd in honor of Father’s Day and men’s wellness.  Just enter: LOVEMYDAD at the check-out and “Like” us on Facebook to get notices on giveaways, contests and more!

Take care and enjoy your day, Dads!
