GREEN POINT – Eating Healthy in Rocky Point, Mexico

This morning I had the chance to visit with Juan Gama and his cousin Angelica Chapa who opened GREEN POINT January 25th of 2016.  Juan who is from Monterrey, Mexico came to Puerto Peñasco team up with his cousin to open this store.  Juan has been  a Certified Health Coach for over 2 years and has his degree from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition in New York City.  Angelica is a Registered Dietician, so putting this store together was a perfect match for them.  He has been what we would call a Personal Trainer but now feels the need to expand to many people.

Together they will be putting together workshops and doing lectures on how to eat healthy and be diet conscious.  We talked about the fact that if they would have just started teaching classes, people would have had the excuse that there was no place here to buy the products to complete a successful program.  So by opening the store first, no one has an excuse not to get a program designed to help them meet their goals.

Fresh Juice Mexico

We talked about the fact that here in Puerto Peñasco, most people do not eat healthy foods.  Diabetes is very high here as in many other parts of Mexico and the world.  In the morning you see the construction workers buying their huge bottle of COKE (sugar laden) candy bars and other sweet carbohydrate loaded foods rather than natural fruits and juices.  The goal is simply to  retrain the thought process of people to eat better and live longer healthier lives.

I was intrigued as I walked around the little shop to see that they have virtually everything that we need to make our juicing diet a success.  I found their prices to be very good for every item and they certainly have hard to find items like GoJi Berries, Moringa, Green Tea, natural whole oats (which I had never seen), many natural grains such as Flax seeds, Quinoa, raw Honey, natural Nutella, organic Cacao from Chiapas, Maca, Chia seeds and so much more.  For those who are taking natural things to fight cancer, they also have Tumeric and several other herbs.  They also sell Agua de Coco or Coconut Water.  Now you can also find all natural Gluten Free Flour for your baking needs.

Gluten free Muffins

They feature 12 cold pressed juices made fresh daily and Juan was kind enough to give me one named Holy Kale and it was amazing. Of these 12, one is made with Almond Milk and one made with Chocolate Almond Milk.  They also make breakfast and sandwiches that do not use Soy.  Their breads are called Eceekiel Sprouted Breads which can be gotten from Sprouts, but Juan said they are now buying directly from the producer in Mexico and the 1st shipment will be arriving this next week.

They also carry a line of all natural soaps, shampoos, bar soaps, dish soaps and lotions.  As he explained our skin needs to be tended to and nourished  as much as what is inside us.  So many products out there have so many bad things for the skin, that they actually do more damage than good.  Also featured is all natural toothpaste.

They have based the business on the principles of providing delicious foods using no sugar or additives.  As Juan put it “If you pick up something to buy and there are 5 ingredients that you can’t pronounce the names of or know what they are, DO NOT BUY IT.  That was interesting to me as I had just heard someone say that the other day on a talk show and it makes sense.

Rocky Point has grown to the size city that has been looking for a place like this.  We have many cancer survivors living here and they all want to improve their health and make certain that they can do everything possible to avoid cancer rearing its ugly head.  I feel between the natural items found at GREEN POINT and natural supplements, we are on the right track.  I am not saying this will cure cancer but it sure as heck might help.  We have been reading a great deal on the natural cures for cancer and watching a documentary on the Cure for Cancer and my husband has now said let’s give it a try.
I encourage you to stop in and welcome them to Puerto Peñasco.  Their classes and workshops will begin in August. They are open Monday – Friday 7 am to 6 pm, Saturday 9 am to 3 pm and closed on Sunday.
