A few months ago, I tried (and loved) the alkaline diet. The idea is that by replacing foods that cause excess acidity like meat, dairy, alcohol, sugar, and flour — with more alkaline foods like vegetables, legumes, and nuts — your body will be less susceptible to disease and inflammation. After doing a weeklong cleanse, and then trying to keep it up by eating alkaline 80% of the time, I’ve lost weight, have better skin, and much more energy. What started out as an assignment for work, turned into something much more life-changing.
Nutritionist Dr. Daryl Gioffre, directed my initial alkaline cleanse and introduced me to AlkaMind Daily Greens and Daily Minerals powders. To start the day, you mix a glass of water with Daily Greens powder, a100% certified organic greens including wheatgrass, spinach, kale, and beetroot.

Just one scoop of powder promises more energy, better digestion, and the nutrient benefits of five servings of organic greens every day. But while it promises a peach flavor, don’t expect it to be sweet. If you don’t love the taste, try mixing it with grapefruit juice. I’ve used Daily Greens as an add-on and love the energy boost, especially during that late afternoon lull. While eating whole vegetables is obviously always the best way to get your greens in, the single-serve packets can give you a nutrient burst when you are on-the-go.
