I am by no means a health food eater, it’s not that I don’t want to be healthy I really do it’s just that most foods that are good for you well…let just face it are really yucky tasting and to top it off they are way to expensive for most of our budgets especially for a family with only one member working so we don’t eat health foods around here much. But, I’ve recently made a pledge to myself to get healthier and eat better so when I came across Genesis Today I was really excited to give them a try, so when I got the chance to review them here on my blog I couldn’t wait to get started!
About Genesis Today (Taken From Website):
We get our superfruits directly from the source, from the mountains of Tibet to the plains of Mongolia. And we follow the traditional methods of the indigenous people passed down for many generations, like climbing the acai trees and hand gathering goji berries.
There’s a reason it rhymes with responsibility. Sustainability is one of our most cherished guiding principles. From our successful recycling program at our own office (nearly 53 tons in 2009!), to our choice of PETE recycled bottles for our juices, and of course our fruit farming practices, we’re making sustainability a priority, one day at a time.
You’re only as good as your partners in this business, so we work directly with people who share our philosophy of ethical and fair trade, ecological consciousness and responsible processing. No brokers. No middlemen. Just partners we can trust.
I was sent an assortment of products of my choosing from Genesis Today and I couldn’t be happier with the products I choose and I can tell you right now that I’ve got my eye on some other products that I can’t wait to go buy!
The first product I was sent to review was their Goji Berry Juice:
Known as the “happy berry,” goji is naturally full of nutrients to support positive moods. It is also loaded with an impressive amount of minerals, amino acids, fiber and unique ingredients found in no other food in the world. Yup, this berry’s an over-achiever.
Now I was a little reluctant to try this juice but I was very curious so I said what the heck and gave it a try and WOW! Is all I can say about this juice it’s like nothing I have ever tasted before, it has a very nice citrus flavor and I couldn’t just stop at one drink! After trying the small sample bottle I was sent I went out and bought us the 64oz bottle to keep in the fridge and I’m happy to report that my hubby and “Bug” both like to drink this juice so it’s defiantly a keeper in our household!
Next I was sent a 10oz bottle of their Veggie Blast Juice:
Our Veggie Blast Juice has a taste so rich and fresh that it will make you do a double take (or a double drink as the case may be). And it’s so packed with nutrients and antioxidants, you get two whole servings of fruits and veggies in just one glass. How’s that for liquid armor?
Now, when I first got this juice I thought well this is just like tomato juice drinks that I always used to drink growing up because my mother didn’t think I was getting all my veggies, but boy after that first taste I knew that I was totally wrong!! I couldn’t have been more wrong about the taste of this juice, it’s so much tastier than other vegetable juices I have tried and I noticed that it gave me a more full filling than other juices I’ve tried. I will never drink my old brand of vegetable juice again I’m a new regular drinker of Veggie Blast from Genesis Today!
The last but certainly not least product that is by far my favorite out of the products I received is their Dark Chocolate Cacao Pudding:
Sure, you want to feel great. But you’re no health nut. Not to worry, each little cup of this decadent pudding is chock full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential omega fats and more. Did we mention it’s made of chocolate?
I will start by saying I am not a fan of Dark Chocolate at all…I don’t like dark chocolate anything…..well I can say I used to not like dark chocolate anything because well I am absolutely in love with Genesis Today’s Dark Chocolate Cacao Pudding! It taste so much different than any other dark chocolate pudding I have ever tried before!! I don’t even really know how to describe the taste other than it’s really smooth and gives your taste buds a HELLOOO WAKE UP call that I’ve never experienced before with Dark Chocolate!
I am thrilled to have found Genesis Today and I’m looking forward to adding more of their healthy juices, puddings and smoothies in my daily diet routine. So far from the products I have tried Genesis Today is unlike any other health food company that I have ever tried before, their juices and puddings are absolutely delish unlike other “healthy” juices and puddings I’ve tried before.
