After a full year of hard work, I am proud to announce that my first full-length documentary “Powered By Green Smoothies” is finished! For those that may have missed the news, here’s the recap:
On the set of Powered By Green Smoothies
Last year, I rounded up 10 athletic friends (five ultra-runners and five CrossFitters), put them on a green smoothie challenge for six weeks, and documented everything with my camera. To ensure that my experiment was serious, I put my athletes through a series of blood tests, demanding endurance tests, and consulted with numerous medical professionals throughout entire process. The results of this study were fascinating! I now have solid proof that fresh, organic, whole-food-based green smoothies are extremely beneficial for athletes and athletic people.
The athletes of Powered By Green Smoothies
Even though all of my athletes were healthy and fit to begin with, they managed to further improve their health and endurance simply by drinking green smoothies. Perhaps the most distinguished change we (my team and I) discovered in the before and after blood work of my athletes was a significant reduction in markers of inflammation. All but one of my athletes logged lower rates of inflammation after drinking green smoothies. Less inflammation enabled runners and CrossFitters alike to feel lighter on their feet, heal their pre-existing, workout-related injuries, work out harder, and improve their post-exercise recovery times.

I can confidently conclude that green smoothies support the health and performance of athletes in a way that it is scientifically measurable and physically noticeable. The testimonies of the athletes who took part in this experiment are so surprising and inspiring they will make everyone who watches this film reach for their green smoothie and strap on their running shoes.

Outside Magazine recently did a piece on Powered By Green Smoothies. It’s a good article if I may say so myself. Check it out here: http://www.outsideonline.com/fitness/bodywork/performance-plate/Can-a-Green-Smoothie-Change-Your-Life.html
