In this video, Jason Calacanis, CEO of human-powered search engine Mahalo and former hotshot at AOL/Netscape, gives us a peek into his kitchen on a Saturday morning. He's going to make a vegan strawberry banana smoothie loaded with all kinds of "stuff." Jason has dropped 25 lbs in the last year with 10 more to go. He's not vegan but he's been eating more vegan type of foods as a way to help him recover from his over indulgent eating days. I can totally relate with that.
In Jason's smoothie, he adds about 9 things including a Super Greens Powder and a Living Protein Powder both made by LivingFuel. I've tried the Super Greens at a Whole Foods demo, and by itself it's not so tasty, but when you add other things like kefir and fruits, the taste improves. These powders are REALLY expensive at $75 and $40 respectively, but the high cost is attributed to the potency and healing qualities of the ingredients. If any of you have tried these powders or any others from LivingFuel, please share your insight. $75 for a can sounds a bit much, so is it that good?
He also adds this honey from New Zealand called Manuka honey that is supposed to have "unsurpassed healing qualities" according to their website. Again, it's pricey at $38 NZD per jar (which is about $30 US)
I thought it interesting to see what a famous CEO (at least in geekdom) has to eat for breakfast. oh btw, the first 7-1/2 minutes are on the smoothie making the rest of the time is him showing us around his kitchen and chatting with his bulldogs. He's got great taste in kitchen appliances.
