Dear food diary,
We found “the one.”
Over coffee: A trusted health freak, er, friend, told us about Chuice, revolutionary raw food in a bottle made daily from 45 (not a typo) nutrient-rich ingredients including kale, kiwi, flaxseed, and walnuts, and packed with ridiculously good-for-you enzymes.
Breakfast: Hurry to Highland Bakery, pick up a half-gallon of The Forest (one of two varieties) while successfully snubbing the pastries. Take a sip and realize the name Chuice comes from having to chew (heh).
Lunch: Drink/eat more and learn that a sixteen-ounce glass is a satisfying meal (no cranky fasting here). And though it can be used for cleanses, most Chuicers consume daily.
Dinner: We hear of its natural antiaging powers. Always the skeptic, we meet founder/holistic wellness coach Ladell Hill and guess his age. Twenty years off.
Chew on that.
