The one simple daily action that I do to increase my daily nutrition, reduce allergies, strengthen digestion and eliminate toxins… and you can do it, too!
Our little planet doesn’t have the soil that it used to. Our produce; even the organic varieties, are lacking in nutrients. Did you know? The state of our soil is making our fruits & veggies less nutritious (in key vitamins and minerals, vitamin A, C, calcium, iron), by close to 30%?
Scary thought. More of them here.
What we put on our plate is important. But sadly, it’s not enough. We need to do something more. Relying solely on your plate to deliver all of the nutrients we need in today’s landscape isn’t realistic. On the other hand, neither is spending $130 on the latest and greatest whole food-based multivitamin from the health food store.
Since starting a ketogenic eating style that’s focused on whole foods, I’ve become more and more interested in reaching (and exceeding) whole body health with whole food nutrition. No lab-boosted supplements welcome.
One area that’s caught my attention is greens powders. A good greens powder…
- aids in the digestion and absorption of certain carbohydrates
- provides vitamins, minerals and eliminates toxins
- manages good gut flora and prevents gas, bloating and constipation
- prevents allergies by balancing body systems
- provides vital support for your immune system
The problem I’ve run into looking for a greens powder, is that so many greens powders contain wheat, gluten, dairy, fortified vitamins/minerals, sugars, too many carbohydrates and artificial/unnecessary flavors.
Okay, so we know we need to do something, we know we don’t want to spend a lot of money on it, and (because of our food allergies and sensitivities) we know that there aren’t a lot of options out there.
I swear there’s a happy ending to this story…
Turns out, Genuine Health; the maker of greens+ meets our greens powder criteria and then some. Just one scoop of greens+ contains the antioxidant equivalent of 6 servings of fruits and vegetables, helping you increase your daily nutrition. And their greens+O has only 2 grams of net carbs per serving!
Like the Healthful Pursuit community, Genuine Health appreciates the power of whole foods that are free from allergens. It was quite refreshing, really – to visit their website and see just how many (inexpensive) options are available for people looking to nourish, boost and balance with whole foods.
What I love, is that their greens powders are fermented (with dairy-free probiotics!) to encourage healthy gut flora and fuel the body with alkaline ingredients, potent anti-inflammatory agents, and free-radical quenching antioxidants.
If you’re looking for a high-quality greens powder that’s inexpensive, easily accessible and allergen-free, you should start drinking greens+O like me!
