Put This In Your Cupboard


Disclosure: When I wrote this post, I had absolutely no affiliation with Progressive (the makers of VegeGreens).  I simply liked their product and wanted everyone to know how I felt.  As always, the Loving the Bike reviews is totally and completely a 100% honest review.

Anyway, after the post went out Progressive found out about it and were very pleased to see what was said about their product.  So impressed that they wanted to become a sponsor of this blog.  So when you read this review, please be ensured that what was said about this product was a completely honest and non-biased opinion.

I’ll guarantee that this product is not normally found in most cyclist’s kitchen cupboards….but it really should be.

VegeGreens by Progressive is a self proclaimed “Ultimate Super Food”, and in my opinion they aren’t far off in that statement.  Get this, VegeGreens is packed with over 6o land, sea, and cruciferous vegetables.  If you don’t know what cruciferous vegetables are….let me say this, it’s the scientific name for a group of vegetables that just might provide protection against certain cancers.  They contain antioxidants and are high in fiber, vitamins and minerals. Examples of cruciferous veggies are broccoli, kale, cabbage, rutabagas, and turnips.

Basically, it is a nice old glass of goodness for your body in a quick and easy to drink mixture

Okay, so why do I think you need to get this stuff into your kitchen cupboard?

Well, I would say that there is a lot of great foods and supplements that will help make you a better cyclists and help increase your athletic performance….but the benefits found in just one small scoop of this bad boy can’t be beat.  Of course it would be better to go out and shop for each of these 60+ ingredients and get them fresh….then clean and cut them and blend them up into a drink.  If you have the time for that, I say go for it.  But if you want all this goodness with the simplicity of just having to mix it up in a glass of water, you’ve got to get on board.  You know what?  VegeGreens doesn’t even have any artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners….so it really is the absolute closest thing to the real deal.

What will it do for you?

The first day I took VegeGreens was about a month ago.  I’m not sure if it was psychological or really happening, but I swear that my immune and digestive systems were smiling from the moment I chugged back the glass.  We all know that we’re supposed to take our vegetables, but what’s most important is getting the right vegetables inside of you.  Taking a look through the ingredients of VegeGreens….I cannot find anything that could possibly be missing. This stuff rocks, and it’s got what your body needs.

I can’t guarantee that it will make you a better cyclist, but I can guarantee that it will help keep your body functioning at it’s highest level.  Try telling me that won’t do something for your cycling.

How does it taste?

What else can you tell me?

VegeGreens is not cheap….well at least it doesn’t appear to be at first.  Picking up a small container for $60 sort of makes you shake your head when walking out the store.  But it works out to about $1 per serving and in today’s world, that isn’t too bad.  If you’re wanting to make it last longer, I would suggest taking it every second day and at that frequency it will still be valuable to your body.

I was going to list off all the benefits taking VegeGreens will provide you with, but that would make for a very long list.  So please visit their benefits page and see why there isn’t too much this stuff won’t help you with.

I should also mention that you should steer clear of it if you’re a child, pregnant, or lactating.  This was actually an issue here in my house.  My wife is currently breast feeding our 2 month old baby boy and I really couldn’t see it being a problem.  But it does say this on the label so we checked it out with our family doctor and he suggested doing as it says.  That’s good enough for me and she’ll be off it for now.

I really am impressed with this stuff and I know there are other similar products in the market, but I’m standing behind Progressive and VegeGreens. I’m sold on the benefits it provides and I’m suggesting this to you because I honestly feel that everyone should be in-taking what this product has to offer. Progressive is a Canadian company, so if you aren’t able to pick it up in your local health food or grocery store, ask them what they have in the way of Phytonutrients or “Green” veggie mixes.  Get this stuff in your cupboard and then come back and tell me how glad you are that I pushed you into it.

Enjoy Your Ride

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
