Can A Beverage Have As Many Nutrients As A Salad?
The immediate and probably surprising answer is yes, it can.
However, not every beverage is made equal, and definitely, not every beverage is made with good-for-you ingredients. At Resync, we know how challenging it can be at times to recognize what is healthy and good for you, as marketing and food companies play labeling games with us. That is why we want to share how you can make smarter decisions by drinking nutrient-dense beverages and eating nutritionally balanced salads while considering your budget.
For example, let’s start with Resync’s Wildberry Citrus functional beverage.
- 7 grams of plant-based recovery prebiotics (soluble fiber) for heart, gut, and immune health
- Red spinach, red beets & Aronia Berries to support your nitric oxide levels
- 5x the daily value of vitamin C to support your immune system
- Vitamins B6 & B12 for energy production and metabolism
- Vitamin D3 to round out the positive effects.
It is like, Resync beverage is better than beet with pomegranate juice, prebiotic soda, and vitamins water put together.
- It has all the nutritional value.
- It does not taste like beets.
- It does not have the sugar that pomegranate or beet juice has.
- It actually has essential vitamins in it.
- It is simply delicious.

Now, I want to share, how you can make healthy choices for less than $15.
Nutrition on the Run: Just Salad and Resync
Pair the functional benefits of a Resync sparkling superfood beverage with the intentional ingredients of the most sustainable grab-and-go meal around and you can’t go wrong.
Look at the Just Salads menu, and two items stand out for their hand-held functionality and their nutrient-dense contribution to your health. For less than $15, you can pair either of these options with a can of Resync functional beverage and get back to kicking butt ASAP.
Crunchy Avo Toast & Resync - Amazing Nutritional Value.
The Crunchy Avo Toast looks like a flavor-enhanced bomb of nutrition in an easy-to-eat package popularized by millennials. Avocado toast is a healthy option anywhere, but this avo toast takes nutrition to new heights.
First, the avocado. The poster child of healthy fats and plant-based fiber with a decadent tongue-pleasing creaminess. Vitamins C, E, and K, as minerals magnesium, copper, and potassium, all distinguish avocado fruit as a nutritional powerhouse.
You can see why avocado toast has taken the health-conscious world by storm, but the Tajin-enhanced pumpkin seeds launch this avocado toast to unprecedented health levels. Pumpkin seeds are one of the single most nutrient-dense foods out there. Minerals at levels no other plant food can match, B vitamins, antioxidants, protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Pumpkin seeds are a small but mighty addition!
Topped with crispy onions for an uncommonly good texture experience, enriched with Violife plant-based vegan feta for all the flavor and none of the dairy, and spread on a perfectly toasted piece of multi-seed bread, you can see why it’s hard to find another grab and go option that packs in any more nutrition in such a delicious — and inexpensive— package.
Resync helps you fill in the gaps here. Although the avo toast is plenty high in fiber, heart-healthy beta-glucan and inulin can add more value to your gut health.
Vitamin D is a nutrient that’s hard to get enough of from just-food — 94% of Americans don’t eat enough of it, which is one reason we included it.
Although you get some vitamin C and B vitamins in the avocado and pumpkin seeds, Resync’s beverage gives you an amount of vitamin C shown in studies to have a beneficial impact. (Our article goes into the details on getting the dose right when it comes to vitamin C.) Plus, the mitochondria-boosting, immune-enhancing, heart-health supporting effects of dietary nitrates are not to be missed - you don’t get that in a slice of avo toast!
