Up, Down or Straight Ahead?


In a review of 2009 and the beverage industry trends, Guy Montague-Jones reports that its the relaxation drinks that are spreading across shelves in several major economies. With 150 relaxation drink launches in 2009, compared with 93 in 2008, he states that drinks to enhance relaxation are not only needed in the USA but “other countries as well, “including the UK, Japan, and France.” On the other hand, Energy drinks being launched in the US “fell from 383 in 2008 to 137 last year.”

Not into the rollercoaster? Don’t care for Energies or Relaxers? Mellow out, stay on the steady pace with a diet that includes green tea. This clip recently posted by  Dr. Elizabeth Somer on ABC News advises: “Eat your way to happiness! Include the right foods like salmon, blueberries, green tea and dark chocolate into your diet and avoid eating fatty foods midday to stay on track. You will be happier and mentally sharp for years to come.”

Add it to your smoothie!



About Smoothie Essentials - ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the MatchaGT blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. The Smoothie Essentials product is a line of boosts that add functionality to one's daily foods without adding flavor or colors. (except for MatchaGT and green blend) making it easy to "hide" them from the finicky eaters we all know and love. From stirring them into yogurts, smoothies, frappes and even juice drinks it all come out with the original flavor being center star.. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes.
