Experts Swear By This Green Powder For An Easy Way To Level-Up Your Veggie Intake
The reality is, it can be difficult to ensure you're eating ample fruits and veggies on a daily basis. In fact, only about one in 101 American adults eat the USDA-recommended amount of vegetables (1 to 3 cups a day), according to the CDC. And even if you follow a healthy eating lifestyle, you may find yourself opting for the same staples over and over again, which means you may be missing out on some beneficial nutrients found in less-common types of vegetables.
To combat these problems, mindbodygreen developed organic veggies+, a greens powder that's packed with vitamins and minerals—all in one convenient scoop. This greens powder features dark leafy greens like broccoli and spinach, along with antioxidant-rich fruits such as blueberries and acai.* But what makes this blend especially unique is that it features sea vegetables—a unique group of plants that includes chlorella and kelp—which contain plant-based omega-3 fatty acids2, more dietary fiber3 than most fruits and vegetables, and natural prebiotics.* Collectively, these ingredients can help support immunity, aid healthy digestion, and enhance gut health—just to name a few benefits.*
This powder was created with quality and convenience in mind, so it's been wonderful to hear top nutrition and medical experts report how well organic veggies+ has worked for them. Many of them have shared this supplement is their new go-to way to reach optimal levels of nutrients—both personally and for clients. Here's what they have to say:
"A nutritious way to add vegetables to any and every meal you are preparing."
"In my house, I spend a lot of time thinking about how to boost the vegetable content in all of our family meals. With a young and very active vegetarian who is in the midst of peak growth and an even younger sometimes selective eater, finding the perfect vegetables to meet the needs of everyone in my family can be a challenge. Organic veggies+ is a high-quality and incredibly nutritious way to add vegetables to any and every meal you are preparing.* I use it in smoothies, sauces, and homemade oat pancakes. I truly love everything about this product!"
