Ten Healthy Recipes to Celebrate National Fruit & Vegetables Month

It’s no secret that fruits and vegetables play a significant role in the human diet. According to studies, getting the proper daily servings of fruits and vegetables has been “strongly associated with reduced risk for some forms of cancer, heart disease, stroke, and other chronic diseases.” Many fruits and vegetables are high in antioxidants (like our personal favorite superfruit, açai), which can help with metabolic activity and eliminating carcinogens from the body.

Real Antioxidant Balance

I think that it’s interesting that MonaVie's position on antioxidants has always been along the lines of emphasizing “balance” even when numerous companies in the nutrition industry have been touting the “superiority” of high-ORAC and mega-doses of certain antioxidants (when we knew all along that this was not the right way to go).

MonaVie RVL 3.0 Formula Coming Soon

We’re just about to introduce an updated version of the popular RVL Nutrition Shake Mix. Keep in mind that the shakes were already amazing in terms of overall “nutrient density” and balance between protein/carbohydrates/fat/fiber, but we took this opportunity to make them even better.

At the company, we refer to this revision as RVL “3.0” because it is the third time we’ve determined that the science of nutrition had progressed enough to warrant an update to the formula. Based on that new science, we adjusted the protein level and source, we slightly tweaked the carbohydrate blend, and we updated and improved the antioxidant profile. What this means is a formula that tastes better, stabilizes blood sugar more effectively, and controls appetite even more effectively than ever before—so you can lose the fat and keep the lean, to look and feel your best.

The new RVL Nutrition Shake Mix is based on a formula that I submitted as part of an International Olympic Committee (IOC) sports nutrition program that I'm a part of. Around the same time that I submitted this formula to the IOC program (May 2012), we were also in the process at MonaVie of updating the “2.0” RVL Shakes. So, when my IOC program colleagues came back with such positive feedback on the formula I submitted (top score based on overall balance from among approximately 100 submissions from around the world), I figured, that if it's good enough for the IOC, and good enough to recommend to the world’s top athletes, then it's probably a great place for MonaVie to be as well. So, we decided to use this same formula as the basis for our RVL 3.0 Nutrition Shake update.
