Tahoe Olympic-gold medalist Anderson drinks green “superfood” smoothies

Now that she’s won a gold medal at the Sochi Winter Olympics in the women’s snowboard slopestyle competition, Jamie Anderson’s diet is likely to win a following.

The 23-year-old, South Lake Tahoe resident told Today.com: “”I always try to eat healthy — pure, organic, whole foods. I eat a little bit of meat, but I’m mostly vegetarian. I drink a green shake that’s filled with amino acids — it’s called Tonic Alchemy — it has over 100 superfoods like spiruline, goji berries, all kinds of different grains.

“My acupuncturist at home recommended it — he’s a yogi and healer and has an amazing strong body. You have to make sure you’re taking in a lot of extra vitamins and minerals. Giving yourself the right ingredients is for your body what positive affirmations are to the mind.”

Tonic Alchemy is made by Dragon Herbs, based in Los Angeles. It is a provider of health promoting herbs and complimentary services, including education and educational materials.

“Tonic Alchemy™ is your daily assurance for a perfect diet,” according to Dragon Herbs. “Tonic Alchemy is a remarkable, cutting edge blend of superfoods, premium tonic herbs, organic fruits and vegetables, and probiotics from all around the world – from the cleanest oceans, to the most bio-diverse rainforests, to the world’s most remote mountains.”

Green smoothies, herbal, live-food and raw-food diets and other healthy-lifestyle diets are booming. Nevada City snowboarder Evan Strong — competing in the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, March 7-16. — attributes his nearly unbelievable recovery to the combination of a live food diet and athletic drive.
