Let's face it. We, as mothers, don't always get the nutrition that we need. We are always busy and always on the go. We make sure that everyone else is taken care of and have what they need, but what about us? I have been seeing things all over the place about getting your "greens" and how wonderful green shakes are. So, when Alkamind approached me, I was curious. I am not what you call "health conscious" by any means and I have told you wonderful readers many times that when I go grocery shopping, it's like a 10 year old was let loose in snack aisle. But, I was intrigued by how easy this is to get the nutrition that I need.
Alkamind comes in two sizes, a 30 serving canister or this box, pictured, that contains 15 single serve packets. Now, these are supposed to be mixed in water and drank straight. I could not do that. I did not like the taste. It doesn't have a strong taste at all, but I didn't enjoy it in water. So, what I did, is mix it with my breakfast shake. I use the Carnation Instant breakfast mix. I couldn't even taste it. Alkamind contains 27 alkaline superfoods that are supposed to alkalize, detoxify and energize your body. I did feel better the rest of the day after my shake. It perked me up more than my coffee did. (Still gonna drink the coffee though.) You can pronounce all the ingredients too! It has wheatgrass juice, beetroot, kale, turmeric, chia seeds, lemon, alfalfa leaves, oat grass, spinach, cabbage, wheatgrass leaf, kamut grass, dandelion lea, parsley, barley grass, broccoli, celery, lemongrass, cilantro and eight different kinds of sprouts.
