Toast Your Health With These Five Organic Drinks
This first organic nutritional shake contains organic fruits and vegetables (kale, beet, blueberry, banana, the ubiquitous acai, and more), complex carbs from brown rice, eight grams of protein. It's whey-based, not water-based, unlike Ensure and other meal replacement drinks, that are often recommended to the elderly or ailing, and it's also not loaded with corn syrup, sugar and artificial colors. A new Healthy Kids version helps with picky eaters. Orgain was developed by Dr. Andrew Abraham, a 28-year-old cancer survivor, who wanted to make a shake that actually contributed to health. Available in a Tetrapak, it's smooth, satisfying, it has no vitamin aftertaste or sugar rush. Yummy for all ages.
