G reens are among my very favorite foods. Steamed, sautéed, raw—load up my plate and I’m happy. I guess it is an acquired taste, but to me a meal isn’t complete without plant food! I know that I’m in the minority. Despite recommendations to eat two to three cups of vegetables daily, only 1 in 10 adults actually consumes that amount, which is unfortunate because, calorie for calorie, vegetables provide the optimal source of nutrients among any food. The star among them is greens, including arugula, broccoli, dark leafy lettuces, kale, spinach, and watercress. Green vegetables are essential for a strong immune system, proper gut health, healthy detoxification, and better cognition. Most importantly, greens help keep your body’s pH in balance thanks to their alkalinizing properties. But greens go beyond what you’ll find at your local grocery store or farmers’ market. Whether you’re among those who can’t stand the thought of broccoli or you simply have trouble meeting your daily quota due to a hectic schedule, upping your intake of a variety of greens is an essential part of your health game plan. One easy way to get your quota of greens if your diet falls short is by incorporating a nutrient- dense powdered greens drink mix. Greens drink mixes are a great addition to a healthy lifestyle because they not only help you meet your daily veggie intake, they support virtually every system in the body and can even boost your energy levels. Chlorella, kelp, wheat grass, barley grass, and other powdered greens are packed with an array of concentrated vitamins and minerals essential for optimal health. This booklet will give you the information you need about these powerhouse nutrients. My hope is that the following pages will convince you of the power of greens and just how important they are to your daily health regimen. You will also discover some strategies to get more of the life-enriching nutrients they contain.
