Why Clean Wine and Coffee

A huge part of changing your health when it comes to what you are eating is simply to become aware of what it is you are consuming. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is filled with toxins, dyes, sugar and chemicals. I help my clients find better options and it starts with reading the product label as you CANNOT rely on the marketing information on the front of the package. Overtime, the toxins, chemicals and sugars we consume can cause serious health issues. 32% of Americans drink wine 2–5 times a week. 74% of Americans consume coffee every day. Did you know that the wine and coffee you are drinking is most likely filled with toxic pesticides, dyes, chemical additives, mold, and sugar?

This is why I became a consultant for Scout and Cellar. Not because I drink wine or coffee. I actually really don’t like either. I became a consultant because I could get behind Clean-Crafted Commitment. If you’re going to drink coffee and wine, why not make it “clean”? It’s better for you.

What does Clean-Crafted mean? It means that the grapes (or beans) are grown without toxic pesticides. It means they are produced without artificial processing aids or ingredients like dyes, flavorings, sulfites (this is what causes the pesky headaches) and sugar!

How do we know this? It’s sort of like our food that is labeled “FDA Organic”. It means certain guidelines must be followed. In the case of Scout and Cellar, the company works with independent labs that test the products. And best of all, there is full disclosure because every product Scout and Cellar creates is accompanied by a Soil-to-Sip report, a proprietary breakout of in-depth product details, including ingredients, fermenting/aging/bottling processes, and nutritional content. That blew my mind. When I researched wines from a liquor store, I really couldn’t find any ingredients or nutritional information. I did find Yellowtail, a wine we used to buy. It has 15g of added sugar per serving. A serving of wine is 5 oz. Your typical bottle of wine is 750 ml or 5 servings. 5 servings x 15g = 75g of sugar. That’s 51g over the daily suggested amount of added sugar per day you should consume. Wow.

And if you’re a coffee drinker, what about the mold and pesticides you’re drinking. And how many cups of coffee do you drink per day?

So, like what you eat, if you’re going to drink wine and or coffee, a small change can make a big difference to the amount of toxins, chemicals and sugar you are ingesting. I would love the opportunity to share with you personally what Scout and Cellar has to offer. I can come to your house and give a little wine tasting to you and your friends for free. I could even brew some coffee for you. Just drop me a note to get that going.
