A healthy alternative

Tom Milstead/Torrington Telegram Makayla and Angela Perez, a mother and daughter team, are hoping to give Torrington residents a healthy choice through their Lit Teas and shakes at 307 Nutrition.

TORRINGTON— Everyone knows it’s tough to eat healthy when you’re working through a busy day. A new business, 307 Nutrition hopes to make it a little easier to find shakes and teas that are easy on the taste buds and the waistline. 

307 Nutrition opened its doors last weekend and offers a wide variety of healthy teas and shakes, utilizing Herbalife supplements to add flavor and nutrients. Owner Angela Perez said she hopes to bring a product popular in other parts of the country to Torrington. 

“We are a sister club of O Street in Gering, Neb.,” Perez said. “We just thought coming up to Torrington would bring something new to the community to give you a healthy option. We have  different flavored shakes, from strawberry flavors, berry flavors, chocolate, vanilla. We also have our teas. They’re called Lit Teas, and they give you a boost of energy but no crash. 

“We’re actually distributors for Herbalife. We have clubs all over the Texas area, and they’re branching out to California. It’s just something new to be able to have customers come to you so they can get a healthier version of a shake and a tea.”

Perez said the Goshen County community has been very supportive in the days since 307 Nutrition opened its door. 

“We’ve had amazing support, even for our grand opening over the weekend,” she said. “It has been awesome.”

The area’s first health drink shop has an extensive menu for both its teas and shakes. The recipes are all based on the Herbalife supplements, with dozens of flavors and combinations available. 

“The local favorite for the Lit Tea seems to be our Pomegranate Blue Blast and mango. As far as the shakes go, it has been Fruity Pebbles, Chunky Monkey – all the flavors,” Perez said.

“Our shakes have anywhere from 200 to 250 calories, five to 10 grams of sugar and 30 to 34 grams of protein. They’re also a meal replacement, as well. 

“Our Lit Teas have five calories and no sugar – so they give you a burst of energy, but no crash.”

 Perez said 307 Nutrition hopes to launch an ordering app in the future, and offers deliveries. There are menu items geared towards children, and Perez hopes to work with other local businesses, as well. 

“We’ve talked to a lot of businesses about doing a special for them,” she said. “We do kid shakes. They’re not just for adults.

“We just thought we’d do something different.”
