Okay maybe I'm way out of the loop or just really naive! But are they serious? This must be a joke! Has anyone actually seen this in the stores? I typically don't spend ANY time in the soda isle! Alight I don't do this very often but real or not similar things are being marketed and I can't help but express my opinion here and sorry but I may even resort to a little sarcasm! (The not very often part meaning the sarcasm I'm always happy to express my opinion if you hadn't noticed;)
First off do you see at the bottom of the picture where they call it a "health" drink! Really...........#$%&*^#$%???..... REALLY!!!!!! Are we all really that stupid!?!?!?! I can't imagine one thing being HEALTHY about coke or any other soda for that matter ORGANIC or otherwise! My friends this it marketing at it's best (aka WORST) and if we fall for it we deserve to be sick! Please remember just because something says organic on it isn't going to automatically mean it's healthy!
You will not hear me say that soda in ANY form is ever good for you let alone call it a health drink. Maybe at one point and time most of the stuff they put in it resembled real live food but I'm sorry by the time it gets in it's lovely Aluminum can it more closely resembles synthetic drugs and chemicals and was never meant to enter our bodies. And I know for fact it contains no nutrition. Unless of course you are needing your daily dose of Aluminum so you can be well on your way to dementia and Alzheimer's!
Please understand EVERYTHING we put into our bodies has to go through the digestion process. This takes nutrients and energy for our body to do this. All our nutrients and energy come from the food we eat. It is our fuel! You would NEVER put the wrong kind of fuel in you car. Why? Because it wouldn't run! You have never even tried it. You just trust the manufacturer who tells you it won't run. So then why do we look to the manufacturers of so called foods to tell us what our body needs instead of the manufacturer of our bodies? I think our Creator knows what we need and he created it for us! He's so smart!!! Did you know if you eat fresh fruits and vegetables in their whole state they contain the enzymes to basically digest themselves! This puts very little strain on the body but also feeds it lots of nutrients! Amazing isn't it! Processed junk food organic or not is going to take energy and nutrients from your body just to digest and give NOTHING back to you in return. Except for maybe a sugar and caffeine buzz along with a nice new addiction to go with it! That is REALLY hard to overcome. I see too many people who I love who have found out the hard way the long term side effects of it and are trying really hard to overcome it. It's not easy and I admire them for working hard every step of the way!
One good friend told me that she noticed that her headaches and side effects were less or non-existent on the days she was drinking green smoothies! Even her cravings were less. Again our Creator is so smart. Our bodies can build and cleanse and fight, always moving toward health and vitality when given the right fuel that it was designed for! My friend is learning to read and understand ingredients and I know she will be able to overcome her Coke addiction she is an amazing women and I'm hoping she will let me share more of her story with you all soon!
In the mean time. Please don't be fooled! Pardon my rant! And learn to read and understand ingredients and true health principles. Don't be afraid to be informed! I'm really hoping that my blog is helping you to do that!
In Health, Tammie
Oh P.S. They have always said "You can't beat the real thing!" It's funny how they keep changing it and the fact that there really has NEVER been anything "real" about it! But I agree you really can't beat the REAL thing and when it comes to my fuel I want the REAL thing! Also please note that it's not just Coke I'm reaming on Pepsi and any other company who tries to get us to believe that their product is healthy or at the very least not going to hurt us when it obviously is not doing anyone any good. I have been known to drink whole food smoothies quite possibly manufactured by these same companies. Although they are usually pasteurized and not near as good as a fresh smoothie made by you. The ingredients are good and I think if we buy what really is good that's what they will make for us. They are just a business looking at their bottom line they will just do what sells. It's not like they are out to get us. They just want our business so let's have them earn our business!
