Got Greens?

With its ease of use and robust nutrient content, greens powder is a MUST-have staple in my kitchen. I even keep some at my office.
There are a variety of greens powder that can be found at your local grocery or health food store. Usually greens powder contains dehydrated greens, fruits, algae, and pro and pre-biotics, herbs, and medicinal spices.
This powder may boosts wellness by aiding in detoxifying the body, anti-inflammatory effects, gut health support, and even weight loss! Of course, this is all in addition to a well-balanced and whole-food eating style. Of course, you should ALWAYS discuss adding new foods or changing your meal plan with your healthcare practitioner before doing it! A tip – try to avoid a greens powder with added sugar or flavorings. These ingredients may not support wellness.
