We feel pretty good about ourselves here at Zuma.
On a scale of 1 to 10—where 1 is the couch potato singlehandedly keeping the neighborhood 7-11 afloat and 10 is the annoying why-don't-you-just-write-your-own-menu-and-leave-the-server-alone health nut—we'd say we're about an 8. Pretty good, right?
But even with a score like that, it's pretty hard to achieve all of your goals all of the time.
One goal we consistently fell short of? Getting enough quality produce into our lives without the heartache and hassle of constant trips to the store. The constant buying, chopping, mincing, juicing, sautéing and just generally making of fruits and vegetables left us a little drained. Yet anything else left us feeling guilty and anxious about our health.
We're betting you understand.
Eventually, we decided, there had to be a better way. Thus was a small but mighty powdered juice venture born.
Today, we make getting your fruits and veggies just a little more possible and a little less painful. We carefully choose every single ingredient in our formulas with maximum health benefits in mind, scrutinizing each and every one to ensure its taste, freshness and nutritional value.
Truth be told, we're pretty uptight about it. Where other manufacturers might use filler ingredients or artificial additives, we just say no. (Thanks, Nancy.)
Our expert formulation team are even bigger sticklers than we are, believe it or not. After months of agonizing ingredient sourcing and product testing and delicious juice-drinking, we told our formulation team they'd hit the nail on the head. And they were like ... no.
And we were like, yes. And they were like, still no. And we were like, okay but why? And they were like, because it can be better. And we were like ... fine. That's actually what we were going to say anyway.
Well, we've got to hand it to them: now it's better. In fact, it's downright awesome, both in terms of taste and in terms of pure immune-boosting power. When you drink one of our juice formulas, you're doing right by your body, one glass at a time.
That's one goal achieved, at least.
Now to learn the ancient art of moonwalking.
