Onnit Introduces EGN Powerfood

fOnnit Introduces EGN PowerfoodI first wrote about this product back in May of this year. Aubrey Marcus was on Joey Diaz’s podcast talking about Onnit’s upcoming products and he mentioned something about a new product that would rival Green Vibrance. Seven months later, this product has finally come to fruition, and it’s called Onnit EGN Powerfood.

Back then I had no idea what Green Vibrance was, so I did a little research and found out that it’s a powder that you mix in water or juice. It’s a superdrink that provides you with a wide range of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that a lot of us don’t get through our daily eating habits. Having the ability to drink some Green Vibrance and get everything you need from one glass is appealing. The problem according to Aubrey is that Green Vibrance doesn’t taste good. At all. If you’re like me, drinking something that tastes disgusting doesn’t make me want to drink it, regardless of how good it is for me.

So what Aubrey set out to do was to create something in the same vein as Green Vibrance, but have it taste good. The result is EGN Powerfood, with the EGN standing for Earth Grown Nutrients, a favorite phrase of Mike Dolce. It works in much the same way as Green Vibrance: you scoop some of the powder into a glass of water or juice and chug it back.

So what’s in this EGN Powerfood? Literally too much stuff for me to type out here, but I’ll break it down into categories: there are an assortment of antioxidants, a variety of greens, a rainbow of fruits and vegetables, a blend of ingredients designed for detoxing, and a blend for digestion to cap it off. It’s honestly a little unbelievable when you look at the list of ingredients and think that somehow they condensed all of this stuff into the plastic jar of EGN Superfood, and that somehow you can obtain the benefits of these ingredients by drinking one glass of the stuff per day.

I’m the type of person who doesn’t like eating many vegetables. I’d rather blend and drink them in a smoothie than eat them with my meals, but I try as best as I can. Knowing that you can mix up a drink and obtain the same benefits is definitely appealing. Now some of that stuff I force myself to eat I can take off the menu and substitute it with EGN Powerfood instead.

For those who care about gluten and GMOs and all those other food-related buzzwords, EGN Powerfood is vegan-friendly, non GMO, and it doesn’t contain any dairy, gluten, or soy.

What are Earth Grown Nutrients?

What are Earth Grown Nutrients?Joe Rogan has been a big help towards helping me live a healthier life, but so has my man Mike Dolce. Anyone who’s listened to his podcast, follows his Twitter, or read any of his books knows that he is always preaching earth grown nutrients. Keeping this in mind whenever you eat is an easy way to ensure you’re making healthy choices.

So what exactly are earth grown nutrients? Simply put, they’re things that are grown naturally. Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. It may seem somewhat limiting, but take a look through Mike’s books Living Lean and The Living Lean Cookbook and you’ll see a wide variety of foods, recipes, and meals that are both healthy for you and delicious as well.

Eating earth grown nutrients also means that you don’t have to eliminate anything like some other fad diets require. You don’t have to eliminate carbs, gluten, meat, or sugar. You just have to eat the right things. If you’re unsure, flip over the packaging in the grocery store. If you see anything on the list of ingredients that isn’t earth grown or something that sounds like a chemical, it’s best to set it back down and look for something else.

Dolce recommends eating earth grown nutrients every two to four hours. He also suggests eating only until you’re satisfied, rather than eating until you are full. I know that for myself, this is especially difficult to do. However, following Dolce’s guidelines, you do eat less but you eat more frequently than most people likely do, which could be the key to avoiding overeating and reaching for something healthy over something that’s bad for you.
