We passed!

The importance of a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables was the topic of our “5 or 50″ Women’s Sustainable Weight Loss & Healthy Lifestyle Group meeting last night. As you know, I’m a huge advocate of a mostly plant based diet. So, no surprise, it’s a topic our group has explored more than once. I’m proud to say the ladies have taken heed to our conversations.

Our guest speakers Greg and Keith (our first time having guys at the meeting) are reps from Monavie. Monavie has this cool new VIEW scanner or what the fellas call the “Fruit/Vegetable Lie Detector.”  The Monavie VIEW scanner helps determine if you are getting enough antioxidants. After scanning the ladies in our group, the entire group (even the newcomer) scored with medium to high levels of antioxidants. Yes! We passed with flying colors. The fellas said it was the first time ever that they had a group collectively score this high. Yes! Yes! Yes!
I say it again,  Eat Your Colors.
Life Scores from our group: Four scored purple including myself, three scored green, and one scored blue. Read more about the VIEW scanner and Life Score here.

  1. Keep up the great work ladies! And if anyone else wants to get their VIEW Score feel free to let me know!
