VegiZest – the SuperFood Vegetable “Food” Supplement.

Imagine enjoying a cup of broth at night, or eating soup or a seasoning for a salad, or any one of a myriad of dishes, and knowing that you weren’t getting a dose of increase-your-blood-pressure sodium that will put you at further risk of disease. Yet, imagine that it tasted like you were getting that hit of salt you’ve likely gotten used to, while your body was getting a nutrient-rich superfood that you loved!

Well, that was my experience last night, yet again, when I used Dr. Fuhrman’s VegiZest product – which is the ultimate soup base and seasoning mix.

Dr. Fuhrman's VegiZest

It was 7:00 PM, and I was just sitting down to read a book, but wanted to sip something. At night, I like to be satisfied, but not feel full. So, I heated up some water, and put in a tablespoon of VegiZest, and I had a great broth that was “nutrient rich.” Mmmmm, it was so good.

One of the reasons why I like Dr. Fuhrman’s products so much, and in particular VegiZest, is because he has created the niche products that make eating a nutrient-rich diet, so “every day” and easy–or, as I like to say, “simple,quick & easy”

In this one cup of vegetable broth, I was actually consuming: green pea, organic spinach, carrots, organic broccoli, organic celery, organic kale, broccoli sprouts, organic soy flour, organic date sugar, organic onion, garlic, spices, green tea, nutritional yeast, canola oil and organic parsley.

* The canola oil is limited and the only allergen was soy, but in an extremely limited quantity.

It was in this moment that I realized how content I am in eating a nutrient rich diet, and its because of having access to Dr. Fuhrman foods that I love this eating style all the more. A cup of tea moment like this is always very enjoyable, but I was drinking more than a cup of tea. I was practically eating a meal, yet enjoying that “meal” like it was a cup of tea, or “Joe” moment that so many people savor. I woke up this morning with a sense of satisfaction, as well, because my nutrient needs were met before I went to bed.

Remember, the key to success in a “nutrient-rich” Performance Lifestyle is knowing how to get the nutrients your body wants and needs to function and perform well, in convenient, tasty and enjoyable ways. This is Dr. Fuhrman’s mantra as he wants to make sure that people can eat for health and get nutrient-rich foods into their diet in the same ways they can get the super convenient nutrient-poor and nutrient-barren foods so many people are accustomed to.

That is why I have been calling this Nutrient Rich diet style the “Simple, Quick & Easy” way to eat. It’s not to say I don’t like gourmet eating. I do, and so do you, but I must admit, I have a bias to being able to refuel and enjoy my food in simple, quick and easy ways, as that is the way I eat most of the time… so that bias spills over into the messaging here at

Note: The Nutrient Rich food and Recipe database has gourmet recipes as well, but the hallmarks to eating Nutrient Rich successfully are the Simple Quick & Easy Recipes, that most people eat 80-90% of the time. People are busy!

Last night was a pure simple, quick and easy moment.

Here’s some info on VegiZest:

it tastes great and is cost effective.

Dr. Fuhrman also has a similar product called MatoZest.

They’re great tasting, certified organic and kosher. Not only are these extraordinary products nutrient rich, they are “organic vegetable supplements” that have been painstakingly designed to taste great, naturally.

No Sodium (Great Salt Alternative)

Dr. Fuhrman’s VegiZest is a super-green food supplement with a mild blend of spices.

Dr. Fuhrman’s MatoZest is tomato-based with more of a zesty Italian flare featuring sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and onion.

You can:

* Flavor all your soups, salad dressings and dips.
* Use alone in hot water as a weight–loss aid and phytochemical food supplement. (this is what I did!)
* Sprinkle on any dish as a seasoning, replacing salt.

The beauty is you get, phytonutrients, amino acids, antioxidants, plant enzymes and trace minerals in these unique products designed to complement your healthy, PerformanceLifestyle.

What’s also good is that MatoZest and VegiZest are “food supplements” as I like to call them because they are not quite whole foods (since they are dehydrated) but they are not necessarily supplements either (since they are all nutrient-rich food ingredients with countless nutrients across all categories) have been formulated without the addition of possible allergy producing ingredients such as: sugar, starch, salt, honey, lactose, eggs, milk, colors, and fructose. There is some organic soy flour.

Enjoy these healthy additions to your lifestyle. 🙂

  1. hungry in Portland, OR

    It would be so great to be able to buy this in local stores, like New Seasons. Is there a reason it is only available on line?

  2. It would be nice to try. Too bad it's always out of stock and continues to be. If it's so popular maybe the company could keep up with the demand so it can be tried.

  3. I like the idea of the VegiZest but if you are cooking with it or drinking it in a tea with hot water, your going to lose the nutrient rich value and destroy the enzymes, right?

    1. Hi Debbie,

      it's a good question.

      I asked this question of Dr Fuhrman many times, and the answer is this, human nutrition uses human enzymes, and plant nutrition uses plant enzymes, we are not dependent on plant enzymes for nutritional excellence.

      That said, enzymes help ripen and prepare fruits and vegetables for consumption, and do assist in digestion.

      The loss of enzymes in a hot tea, first of all, which is not that much hotter than 117 degrees F, (over which a food that is cooked is no longer considered raw) is not doing much damage, if at all to the enzymes and plus, in that case I'm not exactly drinking the broth for enzymatic action, I'm drinking for nutrient rich pleasure.

      So, all that to say, this is a good question, but I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. Nutritional insight like the point about killing enzymes when cooking can be taken far out of context and taken way too far. You'll be getting plenty of nutrient value from VegiZest even in hot water! 😉

      And remember there are dozens of ways to consume VegiZest that have nothing to do with hot water, soups, salads, seasoning in countless recipes. I put it on hummus sandwiches, over chickpeas and sauce (a favorite snack)… etc.

      Great question.
