Water has been my main fluid of choice for the past few years and I am mindful to have my own water in a reusable glass bottle with me when going out. At home, whole food green smoothies and freshly made green juices are regulars in my diet. However, during a trip to California in December and being unable to make the usual green smoothies I make at home, I decided to give the Green Machine a try. In terms of taste , the Green Machine tasted fantastic.
In fact, a little too fantastic. I know the company says that they add no sugar whatsoever to any of their products, but I have made pure fruit smoothies at home before and have never got such a sweet taste. There is a good reason for that, which will be explained below.
The taste was great, but the sweetness of the product did surprise me quite a bit in being on the unnaturally too sweet side. Perhaps that is just my refined-sugar-free tastebuds talking. In terms of consistency , the drink is smooth and uniform in texture, like one would expect a smoothie to be. If you make homemade smoothies, it is not thick, but thinned out enough to be pleasant to drink for everyone, and not viscous.
How you will view or rate this drink depends largely on your personal definition of health and nutrition standards. For example, to a raw foodist, there is nothing healthy about this drink. To a SAD diet consumer, this is probably the healthiest thing they will consume. Why is the Green Machine so sweet? You only need to look at its first ingredient—apple juice.
Anyone who does home juicing knows all too well that if you want to make any vegetable juice taste good, just add apples. And it would be another thing if someone juiced their own apple juice at home and added to a homemade smoothie, but that is not the case either here. Processed, pasteurized apple juice is for the most part pure sugar. Juices are devoid of fiber, and pretty much liquid sugars unless homemade - research home juicing to understand this concept.
One would think being a smoothie the purees would have their fiber, yet one look at the nutrition info and we see that this product does not contain any fiber. This is something to consider, as even though the company touts that there is a pound of fruit in every To have fruit and vegetable servings really count we must go to the fresh, whole and natural source.
This is also why homemade smoothies are superior when made with fresh produce, and based on water not juice. They retain their fresh qualities, nutritional integrity, live enzymes and fiber. Further down the ingredient list we do see some nice green vegetable and algae ingredients, but again these are so far removed from their original nutritional integrity.
This is a common problem for processed food. Processing destroys not just the nutritional integrity of our foods, but their flavors too. This is why companies resort today to adding salt and various forms of sugars, not to mention other additives to literally everything!
As for other Naked Juice flavors, I am not even inclined to go there as I am pretty sure this would be the healthiest of the Naked Juice varieties.
The rest will just be processed fruit drinks. So is this drink a good and healthy choice for you? Well, you will have to answer this one for yourself. I can only give you the following guidance. If you would typically be a soda, energy drink or juice person, then by all means this is a much healthier choice than the other three options any day.
However, if you are trying to be healthy, I mean seriously healthy, or trying to lose weight, or diabetic, or pre-diabetic then this is not a healthy choice at all. Make your own smoothies at home. We have all of the right resources today at our finger tips from free web recipes to Kindle and print books on smoothies in every price range. It just takes a little effort on our part to make our health a priority. And yes, you can then take some of your homemade green smoothies with you to work, or on the road and enjoy the convenience too!
Will the odd one hurt you? Simply ask yourself each time you buy it why you are buying it in that moment. Choose a fresh fruit or vegetable. So while the smoothie has many beneficial ingredients, especially boosts like chlorella and spirulina , and is very convenient on the go, it is still a processed food product. This means it should not be relied upon as a regular part of your diet if you are interested in optimal health.
I know the company sounds so proud about how fresh the products are, but anything bottled and pasteurized is far from fresh. To make matters worse, these drinks then sit in plastic bottles for days, weeks or even months. Here is an excerpt regarding the details of the case:.
The smoothies come in 10oz, They come in recyclable plastic bottles, with a screw on cap. Juices are the squeezed water and nutrients, especially micronutrients, from plants. They are typically made with a juicer the higher quality the juicer , the better the quality of juice and less nutritional integrity is lost. Juices do not contain fiber, but they offer a direct and high concentration of pure nutrients vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc.
Smoothies are made by using the whole fruit or vegetable and blending it down into a liquid or liquified end product. They are typically made using a blender, and the higher quality the blender , the smoother the consistency of the smoothie turns out. Smoothies keep all of the food intact: Smoothies are filling and best for everyday use, where they can serve as complete meals or snacks.
It is important to realize that both have value and a role to play in optimally healthy living, but for most benefit they need to be homemade from fresh, high quality and hopefully organic ingredients.
The term puree can be used to describe the consistency of something. For example, at home I have a juicer, if I put apples into it, I get apple juice. But if I put a papaya into it, I get a papaya puree. Either way, the fiber is almost if not entirely gone. In the case of Naked Juice, the fact that the product does not contain any fiber can make one suspect that the purees used are not from whole food.
At the molecular level, generally speaking yes all sugar is sugar. A glucose molecule from fruit is no different than a glucose molecule from a cookie. But as we can see from that example, sugars come into our bodies in many forms and bound to many other compounds, and this is what matters and makes the difference as to which sugars are healthy or better, and which are not.
For example, whole fruits have lots of sugars, but they are bound to fibers and numerous nutrients, specifically micronutrients, making them a healthy food option.
We have to remember that our body does run on glucose as its main fuel, so it would not make sense to vilify glucose molecules, what all sugars break down into more or less. Homemade juices at least come in with rich nutrients, which is why people use them for healing benefits, but commercial pasteurized juices lose most if not all of their nutritional benefits, giving us liquid sugar only.
This latter example is clearly not considered healthy. Finally, many high sugar foods in society ex: Green Machine uses juiced fruits mainly, not whole fruits. So their sugar compounds do not compare to whole, fresh fruit that brings in sugar in whole food form.
Yes, it is from fruits, but from juiced fruits, which lacks the fiber and can spike insulin as quickly as soda. Fruit sugar will act differently in the body compared to other sugar sources, and can be considered healthy but again when it comes into the body in whole food form. Then, it is a different biochem reaction where the fiber and other whole food nutrients delay the sugar from entering the blood stream as quickly.
You will get some blue-green algae from this product, but it is far from the optimal way of consuming superfoods like those and in the amounts you want. If you want the benefits of algae like Spirulina then it is best to source out the pure product in powder or tablet form.
Spirulina powder can be added to your own smoothies, or other foods like these delicious and optimally healthy Superfood Squares. The only concern one can have about spirulina today is simply where it is coming from. In the past a lot came from around the Japan area and today with that area being infected with radioactivity, it is not wise to get spirulina sourced from Japan. I encourage you to read the following report on the amazing benefits of Spirulina and its sister food Chlorella. The best solution to weight loss, which most people do not want to take seriously and put into practice is to eat a mostly plant-based, whole food diet.
This means that most of your meals are made of vegetables and there is very little, if any animal foods and processed food in your diet. Consuming reduced, nutrient dense calorie foods is the smartest and most efficient way of losing weight.
If you want to do a juice fast, then you need to do it properly - meaning, freshly made juice that is not pasteurized and vegetable based. There are lots of resources out there to help each person know how to do a proper juice fast.
However, using a processed, sugar rich product like Green Machine defeats the purpose of even doing a juice fast.
Green Machine is NOT equivalent to freshly made, vegetable based juices. Secondly, if one starts drinking this product only and losing weight it is not because the Green Machine is causing weight loss, but because there is a serious calorie reduction. Anytime we drastically reduce our daily calorie input, we are going to lose weight.
If one is serious about their health, they really need to consider going to the root of the solution and prioritize what is important in their life. Yes, there are transition steps we can each take, but we cannot cut corners, rely on processed food and expect good results. While the Green Machine may seem like a step in the right direction and could be used as a transitional drink or in place of something like nutrient deficient soda, it is ultimately not the ideal way to go.
Green Machine is NOT a substitute for fresh fruits and vegetables. Green Machine is a quick fix, and nothing compares to the goodness and freshness of homemade smoothies. Packing smoothies with greens is key! For optimal health, greens should be part of every meal.
The easiest way to get them for breakfast is in a whole food smoothie. This site contains hundreds of articles to help people with different aspects of their diet and lifestyle. Every topic is explored in as much detail as possible to leave the person empowered and ready to act.
There are also various videos and healthy recipes for you to explore on Healthytarian which is a growing library of videos where I teach people how to put optimal nutrition into daily practice. There are also so many other books and resources from other nutrition experts that can help along the way. However taking things step by step and not overwhelming oneself is key, and slowly but surely change takes place and our diets, as well as our health and lives are transformed.
However, it is a fact that not all produce is available in organic form everywhere and not all people will be able to afford organic in large amounts. So what I recommend is to check out the Dirty Dozen which is a resource from the EWG that comes out each year to help customers pick what produce should really always be organic, and what you can get away with and be fine buying conventional.
This helps to balance things in the financial department. Also, for the summer months, try to see if your area has a CSA program on some farm. This is a fantastic way to get local, and normally organic fruits and veggies, and is normally very, very economical.
In terms of safety, it should be fine. However, one has to ask themselves if they really want to introduce their young child to pure sugar liquids and over excite their tastebuds so early. When we introduce children from a young age to hyper sweet or salty or fatty foods, we are conditioning their tastebuds to prefer such items, consequently making whole, natural foods unpleasant due to their milder and unique flavors.
When it comes to homemade green juices or smoothies, or even switching to an all natural diet, you have to give your taste buds time to adjust.
Remember that most of us have eaten a processed food, heavily refined diet based on unnatural and hyper flavors. Depending on what kind of a diet you ate for the majority of your life, it will take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks of good clean eating. Although most blenders, regardless of the price range, will do a decent job at blending ingredients, many will leave small chunks of the foods blended, especially pieces of the leafy greens. This is actually very easy to achieve at home, but it takes the right blender.
For example, high powered, industrial blenders like the Vitamix or Blendtec are world famous for this very function and revered for their amazing funcationality and versatility.
They come with a high price tag, but are a worthwhile investment for anyone who wants to incorporate optimally healthy smoothies and then some into their everyday diet. Also, when we add up how much money one spends on commercial drinks, the price of one of these blenders starts to become quickly justifiable. Smoothies should be drank fresh for maximum health and nutrient benefits. Football is boring compared to that.. I have really bad tech karma, I guess.

As a blessing and challenge And in visiting the link on your website.. Nice to see some wisdom on blogs.. Few people can do these demanding jobs.. Along with a synergy of 18 other disorders.. Severe Degenerative Arthritis and Spinal Stenosis..
Severe depression to the point of Anhedonia.. And i know that real miracles can happen for folks like me who lose all feelings and only live pain.. Anyway i view the entire reality of us as sacred now.. My God Is no Theist.. My God is much bigger as Nature..
That includes Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas alike.. As well as Universal Peace and Love inherent in most of human nature if and when balanced.. And that is great enough for me.. Always now as Simple Life.. Away from all words.. And other material items Bipolar, schizophrenic, autistic; she is able to get through to them, and help them learn to deal with whatever their mind is doing to prevent their happiness… As I said, an amazing woman….
I find many of the same qualities in you…. The condition itself may very well be a mutation, to the next highest evolutionary point for humans.. In short, people who are now called autistic are, probably, by all the evidence I can see, the next stage in human evolution… Once a way to learn to process their perceptions is found, there will be NO further limits to what their minds can accomplish….
As I perceive you, you are caught half-way, between perfect comprehension of self, with a full understanding thereby of human nature, and, the dark ignorance where most of humanity dwells in discontent…. Experience counts more my friend than any textbook of medical science or psychology school ever will.. Love to you and your cat.. With the introduction of Air Conditioning.. And i suppose that is wheRe words that are more than facts can lead back to the heARt of human..
When we find that is truly what we share in common.. Anyway considering the stresses of modern mechanical cognition life.. Strange is still a home for me.. And off to Marathon dance shopping again.. Katrina selects my wardrobe s.. Music times Emotion equals Human Force of Spirit rising..
Sadly some folks feel ME is a sin.. But people can be convinced to do almost anything if it means acceptance in the culture one is born in.. Including extremes like female and male genital mutilation.. Cultures are insane and evil.. Not the gift of God..
Light Force being pro-social emotions that lead to social cooperation like Love.. But we humans who learn to regulate and master our emotions the way of Light..

Living and Existing on this terrestrial plane for now.. And having the time away from material excesses of culture to look within and find the answers inside no different than what truly seems to be the homeless Carpenter Jesus..
And the Truth as far as i can see.. Doing stuff his way.. But what they do is move.. Reach out and touch someone on a smartphone.. And we always have..
