View Full Version : Question for Rawlinks

hi, I'm addressing this question to you because you are a monitor:o
I purchased Alissa's super green powder, and I love it:p
When I ordered it I asked several questions and was told that it is the same nutritional value as using fresh leaves. I'm wondering why everyone on the board talks about handfulls of leaves:confused:

Well, I'm obviously not our moderator Rawkinlocs (I think that's who you mean) yet, not all of us are using powders and such... we are using freshly grown and harvested living plants. There are some who want the extra nutritional value of the dried and concentrated, easy-to-use product.
Living in SoCal, I've probably got more farmers' markets and an easier-to-obtain chance of getting the fresh produce than many others so, it's a choice in some cases; in others, it's a need.

Well, the Green Powder "could" be looked at as a supplement. I personally still use fresh greens in my smoothies BUT...I also add the green powder mainly (for ME) because it has a lot MORE than what I'd generally put into my smoothies...a lot more than what I even have available to me as far as types of greens go.
So, it's just an additional "green boost" so to speak, for me. But as Revvell said, MANY just simply use fresh greens and still get wonderful results. But then if there are people who don't have access to wide varieties of or a good quality of greens, the green powder would be good to use.

It's a "fast food" (if you will) for me at times. When I don't have any fresh greens or if I'm running late. I'll throw a tablespoon in a 34 ounce container of nut mylk for example and I've got a "fast" green smoothie.
Plus like Rawkinlocs said - it's a way to get a VARIETY of land and sea veggies in a highly concentrated form. If I were to put that many greens in my smoothie it would be so thick and I don't think I'd care for it.
I too use Alissa's powder because of the "extra" fresh greens I don't have access to and probably never will.
I agree with Revvell too. For some it's a need and for others it's an added boost. Can't hurt 'ya, that's for sure!

thanks for everyone's response. I sort of feel like i'm cheating by using the powder, but i love it! I've also been worried that i'm not really getting the advantages of a 'green smoothie' by using the powder.:p
