Ora Products and Healthy Snack Recipes

By now you know we are insanely passionate about wellness and especially innovative products that make having a vibrant mind and body easier to achieve. Any product we select to serve at Nourish (and consume ourselves) is always the highest quality that we can get our hands on.  When we were researching our protein powder (and I did ALOT of research) we came across a brand called Ora.  I fell in wellness love with their similar mission driven business, high quality, organic ingredients, sustainable packaging and chef created flavors. 

Not all Smoothies are Created Equal

Not all Smoothies are Created Equal

Generally, when you think of smoothies you assume you are making a healthy choice for yourself.  Smoothies, especially those at large chain smoothie and coffee shops, can contain 80 plus grams of sugar (some over 100 grams which is more than 3 sodas…come on!!) and are loaded with preservatives. This is fine if this sugar bomb smoothie is your occasional treat, but let’s hope that your occasional treat is not a smoothie, but rather something chocolate based from a dessert menu. They are trying to convince you that these “healthy” smoothies are actually good for you by showing cross fit athletes, yogis and runners with six packs on their website. We understand the power of marketing, but don’t be fooled and please know there is a BIG difference in smoothies.
