Q: Veronica, can you tell our readers how did you get to where you are today?
A: I was a private chef in San Diego and in 2010 created a green drink that helps people with weight loss, energy, vitality, sleep, libido and so much more. The green drink has 7 super greens all chosen for a specific function and sweetened naturally with a tiny bit of apple. I stopped doing food in 2012 to focus solely on my green drink. Since then we have opened 2 stores nationwide and offer home delivery of my green drinks and cleanses nationally. Our locations are San Marcos, CA and West Caldwell, NJ.
Q: Can you tell us something more about the company and what you do?
A: We are certified organic green drink and cleanse delivery company. We deliver fresh, unpastuerized drinks that are low in sugar, right to your doorstep. Like the modern day milk man, we deliver once a week with our own drivers in North Jersey, New York City, San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles. Everywhere else in the country (minus a couple states in the middle) we ship overnight reirgerated drinks in an insulated box with ice packs and dry ice.
Q.: Why Chef V? What makes you stand out?
A: I’m a personal chef and a certified nutritional therapist. I’m not just a corporation try to make money. I’m an actual human being who is proud to help people genuinely obtain optimal health, without being miserable. Our company is certified organic, we have the lowest sugar health drink on the market (only 3g per serving), we are raw unpastuerized, we deliver fresh right to your doorstep, we have customer service that cares about you and your health and we are healthy but also tasty!
Q: Any tips for weight loss?
A: I have a cleanse that is very popular that is not just juice all day. As I said I’m a nutritional therapist and when I saw all these sugar latent cleanses out there I knew I had to do something different. I created my organic cleanse with 4 green drinks a day, 2 vegan protein shakes a day, and a tasty soup for night. This cleanse has less then 30g of natural sugar per day and for diabetics we have an even lower sugar option with 20g of natural sugar per day. Most juice cleanses out there have over 200g of sugar per day. It is not recommended that people consume more then 40g of sugar per day. 20g for diabetics. But with my cleanse, I put people on a 2 day elimination diet (pre-cleanse). Then I recommend everyone start with a 3 day cleanse and then 2 more days of post cleansing after. Most people lose between 5-15 lbs on the 3 day but results vary person to person. Also depending on how much weight you have to lose, those who have more to lose tend to lose more faster. Then people want to know how to keep it off, which bring us to your next question…
Q: I read something about your Green Drink Plan. What is it and how does it work?
A: The green drink plan is what I practice and preach. I like to have the green drink first thing every day for breakfast. I have it around 11-12pm and make sure to wait 15-30 minutes before consuming anything else. The green drink comes once a week and lasts for 7 days. This helps cleanse your liver and colon daily, give you all your greens, gives you energy, helps you sleep and just feel overall good! We offer 50% off your first order with promo code Superb.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Right now just to continue running the company and growing. Future plans but not in the works yet is to license or franchise certain territories. The model is really great. We have a successful online business that is ran out the back of the store and each location also has a store front where people can get other kinds of juices, smoothies, acai bowls, soups and more. Expansion territories would include Texas and Florida first.
