We are often reminded to eat our vegetables, whether it is coming from our grandma or our favourite health blogger. However as weather gets colder, eating more of the green leafy stuff is not the easiest thing to do, even though this is when we most need the extra vitamins and minerals! Incorporating a green superfood powder like Sunfood’s Sun Is Shining Supergreens makes getting all your daily nutrients super easy and tasty.
Why Do We Need Greens In Our Diet?
Green leafy vegetables are packed with essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids. I think that adding greens to any meal instantly makes it look healthier, and that is for good reason! Greens are incredibly important in protecting your body’s immunity, bone health, cell integrity and even your vision. They are bursting with antioxidants, which will reduce inflammation and help to alkalise you. Dark leafy greens like kale, spinach and parsley are also a treat for your skin, and slow the effects of aging. Their strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties are natural deodorisers, so if you are trying to banish bad breath, don’t stop at the toothbrush!
Why Should I Include A Superfood Powder In My Diet?
Superfood Powders include a lot more than just kale and spinach. The Sun Is Shining Supergreens Mix contains nineteen organic, wildcrafted different dark leafy vegetables, algaes, herbs, grasses and sea vegetables. You will enjoy a huge nutritional boost just by adding two teaspoons to your morning smoothie. Another reason we love this powder because of what it doesn’t contain. It has no caking agents, no additives, no fillers, no preservatives or fillers. Just superfoods, probiotics and enzymes!
A great go to smoothie is the classic banana, water and supergreen powder all blended together for a delicious, simple and creamy breakfast, snack or post workout meal. You can certainly inject more creativity though, and make something really special. Try blending it with coconut water, pineapple juice or if you’re feeling extra healthy, freshly squeezed lemon water.
