Salad Power

I love veggies of all types. I don’t discriminate. Raw, roasted, steamed, sauteed, blended. BUT I knows tons of busy, on-the-go friends and family (hi, Dad) who can’t always eat a salad OR want the nutrients but just need the convenience. I finally met the team at Salad Power and I loved their premise – typical ‘juices’ are high in sugar and low in actual greens and nutrients. I typically recommend clients stay FAR AWAY from juices!!

But Salad Power focuses their juices on their veggie blend first: kale, carrot, spinach, celery, cucumber, tomato and bell pepper so the ‘just greens’ juice is just that!

The ‘just veggies’ variety is only 50 calories but has 40x your daily vitamins (A and C) and has some calcium and iron as well. Their other varieties (pineapple, mango, and apple) are delicious too and would be great for someone who doesn’t like the taste of veggies.

I grabbed a bottle during a hot and sticky outdoor workout in Pittsburgh and it was the perfect drink. The juice itself tastes like a mix between sweet bell peppers, crispy kale and celery.

I’m a sneaker addict and don’t mind admitting it. I’ve worn Mizuno for years and love the support and cushioning they offer all while feeling super light-weight. I don’t ‘run’ a ton but work out using  different methods and supportive shoes are the key!

I got to try out the brand new Wave Sky and have nothing but positive things to say about the shoe. Thought I would do a pro/con list so you can think about these the next time you need a new workout shoe!

Pros:

  • Cushioning (almost feel bouncy!)
  • Arch support
  • True to size
  • Aesthetic to the eye
  • No chafing around ankles

Cons:

  • Coloring (not a big fan of ‘teal’ but there are other options!)
  • Different fit than previous Mizunos (actually not a huge ‘con’ because I still like the fit)
  • Typical price of nice running shoes ($150) but definitely an investment
