Leafy greens are some of the most nourishing and healing foods for our bodies. From green drinks to juices and smoothies, leafy greens and green vegetables are powerful and inexpensive sources of major nutrition: they are rich in magnesium, iron, calcium, vitamin K, vitamin C, fiber, folic acid, and potassium, as well as an array of phytochemicals such as beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, and lutein. Greens contain almost every nutrient we require for optimal health.
There are so many amazing green superfoods out there. They are readily available in various products on the market now, like protein powders, energy bars, greens powders and more. They can be very helpful in supplementing a healthy diet, bringing benefits to your lifestyle and general wellbeing. But you’ve probably wondered, what’s really the difference between chlorella, spirulina, moringa, wheatgrass, barley grass, and chlorophyll?
Have you ever had a cold brew, only to feel like your nervous system is pumping the brakes, you have the shakes, and wind up with a “cold brew hangover”? Fortunately, we have been seeing a shift to pretty green smoothies, and iced matcha lattes – and we love it. Not only are green drinks gorgeous subjects for Instagram photos, they’re ideal for curbing hunger between meals and giving you a boost of healthy and sustainable energy to stay focused throughout the day. We also love to add a scoop of our Greens superfood powder to our smoothies.
