You know that I’m a firm believer that nothing beats a healthy, balanced, “just-eat-real-food” diet.
But sometimes it really does help to supplement! That’s why this week we’re going to explore “greens powders”!
Greens “superfood” powders pack multiple servings of veggies and fruits into a single scoop that you can mix into a smoothie, juice, or plain water.
Some also contain pre probiotics & probiotics, vitamins, herbs, & other substances to support your immune system, gut health and even improve your skin and hair.
There are literally thousands of different greens powder products on the market, and finding the perfect one can seem overwhelming.
Here are some guidelines to help:
🥦Make sure it’s organic (and pesticide-free)
🥦Make sure it has a high amount of antioxidants. (One way to do this is to be sure it has a variety of greens… this can include wheatgrass, spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa and kelp, etc.)
🥦Buy brands that certify their products by a third-party lab such as NSF or Informed Choice, which test each product to make sure they contain what they actually claim on their labels without any contamination by things like heavy metals.
🥦You should know what each item on the ingredients list is – they should be
recognizable veggies and greens!
Some great plants to check into include Amazing Grass, Juice Plus, Barlean’s, & Garden of Life.
👉If you’re not so into the green powders, that’s ok! You can still have a positive impact on your health! Your mission is to include an EXTRA serving of greens EACH DAY!
