Kitchen Stewardship | A Baby Steps Approach to Balanced Nutrition

Super Green, Super Storage, Super {GIVEAWAY-NOW CLOSED}

October 18th, 2013 · 14 Comments · What to Buy

Are you worried about radiation drifting across the ocean, by water or by air, to the coastal salmon waters of Alaska, the rich farming lands of California, or elsewhere?

Do you have food storage and emergency preparedness plans in case of general or financial disaster?

Do you ever consider detoxing from radiation after taking a plane flight?

If you answered yes to any of the above, LPC Survival has an interesting product to share today.

I’ve worked with Jeff from LPC for, seriously, just about forever. He was one of KS’s very first sponsors, and I think many of you probably got his advice on which Berkey filter would be the right size for your family.

He’s shared all sorts of neat giveaways in the past, from organic food storage to reusable canning lids to heirloom seed banks and even a big Berkey a while back.

When he asked me what might strike the KS readers’ interest this fall, I wasn’t sure I’d find anything further that we hadn’t already done in the past (other than the grain mill, which is a little out of price range I guessed!).

Then I started reading the description of this 100% Certified Organic Enerfood Super Green Energy Drink:ef_web

• Packed with Vitamins, Nutrients & Anti-Oxidants
• Non-Heated / GMO Free
• Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Raw
• Easily Digestible & Absorbed
• Rich in Iodine
• Helps Eliminate Toxins
• 2 Year Shelf Life – Extend Stored Food by 33%
• Experience Increased Energy
• Caffeine Free

My interest was definitely piqued. Of course, I figured something in the ingredients would cause it to be cast off into the discard pile.

Here they are:

Organic Spirulina – A nutritionally dense blue green algae, rich in protein, Beta Carotene and B vitamins, especially B12.

Organic Chlorella – Also a form of blue green algae, like spirulina, giving Enerfood an even more potent source of optimal nutrition.

Organic Non-active, Vegetarian, Saccharomyces Cervisiae Nutritional Yeast – The second highest source of protein in nature and the richest source of B vitamins known.

Organic Dulse – Seaweeds are nature’s richest source of minerals.

Organic Kelp – Also a nutrient dense seaweed.

Organic Barley Grass – Grain grasses contain more nutrition by weight than the grains themselves, providing a powerful source of vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll.

Organic Wheat Grass – Is also a grain grass.

Organic Alfalfa Leaf – Known as the most potent land source of minerals. It sends its roots down as much as 50 feet drawing up valuable minerals and converting them into a bioavailable form.

Organic Spinach – Another rich source of minerals, especially iron.

Organic Rose Hips – Along with orange and lemon peel this is a strong source of the nutrients that make up Vitamin- C complex, such as hesperidin and rutin, calcium and other nutrients necessary to assimilate Vitamin C.

Organic Beet Root – Just as spinach, beets have long been known to provide us with iron and other minerals.

Organic Orange Peel – Vitamin C complex and bioflavinoids.

Organic Winter Cherry Root – An ayurvedic herb to strengthen and rebuild the body.

Organic White Asparagus Root – Another ayurvedic herb to strengthen and rebuild the body. It is revered by women and also men in the ayurvedic pharmacopia.

Organic Dandelion Leaf – Known herbally to build and cleanse the blood. Rich in calcium and organic sodium.

Organic Lemon Peel – Vitamin C complex and bioflavinoids.

Organic Papaya Leaf – Contains powerful proteolytic enzymes such as papain, which are known to assist in the digestion of protein.

Organic Horsetail – Used by herbalists for millennia to strengthen tooth enamel, hair and nails. It also helps the body absorb calcium.

Organic Barley & Wheat Grass Juice Powder – An even more potent source of the nutrition provided by the simple ground grasses themselves.

Well. It’s not gluten-free, but other than that, I was highly impressed. What do you think? UPDATE: I was corrected by a few savvy readers, who taught me that wheat and barley grasses don’t have gluten, only the seeds. I learned something new! So Enerfood IS gluten-free, all the better.

I immediately started thinking of the little articles and warnings I’ve read about both Japan’s radiation disaster and also the amount of radiation you are exposed to on airplanes, not just going through the metal detector but because of the altitude itself apparently. I knew that iodine was a major source for detoxing from radiation – this product sounds like it would be an easy solution for those who feel vulnerable to radiation.

I also noticed that Natural News highly recommended Enerfood. Not that everything NN says is gospel, of course, but I’d say his stamp of approval at least says that everything is sourced very well and has clean ingredients.

What do you think, KSers? Am I right that this is an intriguing product to you too?

I hope so, because we get to give away 3 tubs with a value of $46.95 each.

Full disclosure: I haven’t tried the product myself, which is unusual for a giveaway. BUT I feel like with powders, it’s all about the ingredients and how its made. You’re going to have to get it in a smoothie or drink it down in some gritty way with juice or water no matter what, so I don’t really have to try it to know what that will be like. Smile UPDATE: There’s some very nice positive feedback from readers who have tried Enerfood in the comments; so I’m encouraged once again that it’s a helpful product!

    That’s an interesting point you raised about Japan’s radiation. It would have been a great product to add to our emergency stash but since it is not gluten free, I’ll need to pass on this one.

  • Christina

    We have been using Enerfood for a few weeks. We like it! We put it in smoothies – if you put too much in (I don’t measure it) then you get a strong ‘green powder’ taste, but it usually hides well in most smoothies. Honestly, every product I have bought from Naturalnews.com (which is a LOT – it’s my favorite natural store) has been fantastic. I threw out all other powders for this one, as it is the best ‘raw’ powder I have found.

    That’s awesome to hear, thank you Christina! :) Katie

    Hi Katie,
    Just read your description of the Enerfood post. I think there may be an error. You write that this product is not gluten free. The product description from the manufacturer says it is. Remember the seed head of the grains have the gluten and gliaden proteins, not the leaves and stems. Confusing. ;)

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    Judy,
    My mistake – I always thought wheatgrass and barley would ALWAYS have gluten in them. Thank you for explaining that it’s only the seed; that does make total sense, but I’d never heard it before! I’ll update the post…thanks! :) katie

  • Grace S.

    I subscribe! :-) Sounds like an incredible product.

  • Debbie

    I have never heard of Enerfood before and the ingredients sound very helpful. I subscribe via email and a fan on facebook.

  • Jen

    Pay attention to the expiration date because it does go bad very quickly from that date. Other than that I’ve used this and it does give you energy and tastes good.

  • Tiffany (As For My House)

    Just a heads-up: Your pre-made Tweet is too long. ;)

    Thanks Tiffany! I thought it was close but that Rafflecopter would stop it if it was too long….whoops!! :) katie
