GREENS: WHAT DO THEY DO?
If you guys haven’t noticed we have got some Greens product from True Protein, if you aren’t sure what they do keep reading! 😊
Greens are a health blend that harnesses the potent benefits of a range of green ingredients. The core element of greens is a combination of five highly nutritious and mildly alkaline green leaf powders (Barley, Wheat, Alfalfa, Oat and Spelt), along with CHLORELLA and SPIRULINA. GREENS is rounded off with the unique additions of freeze dried fruit and vegetable powders, organic matcha green tea, green tea extract and added vitamin C powder. 🍊
Eating your vegetables (at least in whole form) has been linked to longer, healthier lives, and greens powders are designed to help you get the veggies you need. 🥬
However, if you want to simply “get out” of eating your broccoli, well, you’re out of luck. “You cannot out-supplement a poor diet,” explains registered dietitian Lori Zanini, creator of For the Love of Diabetes online program. “Greens powders should only be used in addition to a diet that’s still rich in whole plant foods, including fruits and vegetables. Greens powders do not give the ‘green light’ to not eat your vegetables.” 🥦
So, on those days when you’re on-the-go, too busy to cook or just know that you won’t hit your produce goals, mix your greens with your water or tea (the flavor works pretty well with green tea) or blend the powder into a whole-foods-packed smoothie to make yours into a full meal replacement. Great add-in options include milk and Greek yogurt for protein, half a frozen banana for carbs and a nut butter for unsaturated fat. If you add in a serving of whole veggies like spinach, even better! 😍
Greens are a great supplement to have as they promote better health and well-being and when complimented with a great diet and regular exercise, you have a cocktail for greatness right there!
