Creative Ways To Enjoy Greens Powder

 

Not going to lie -- I am a total product junkie and Greens powders have long been a staple in my smoothie super food arsenal.

I love a great green powder in my shakes when we're low on the fresh greens in our fridge. It's such an easy way to get that scoop of goodness to keep me looking and feeling spritely and youthful (right? right???)

The best greens powder is the one you have kicking in your cupboard and there are so many more ways to use it than just in your shakes. Greens powder is a really amazing way to spike your favourite dishes with powerful nutrition.

Here are five reasons why I love greens powders:

  • Portable when a meal can't be. Shake it up, sip it down.
  • Travel with it! Airport and airplane food is sickenating just when you most need immune and energy boosting fuel. Enter greens powder!
  • Sneak it in. For those people who  still think kale in a smoothie is gross, add a scoop of greens powder and they'll never know the difference. (They'll also never know they're also eating loads of other veggies and superfoods, too.)
  • No store visits required. When you're low on fresh greens, in goes a scoop.
  • Hide it! Greens powders are simple to hide in dips, sauces, dressings and... chocolates? Yes! Chocolate! Watch below.

In this video I am using Genuine Health's Greens+ Whole Body Nutrition, an awesome new greens powder I am loving that is comprised of 70% fermented ingredients and superfoods making it nutrient dense (to the max!) and also highly digestible/absorbable.

Today on Meghan TV, I share with you three of my most favourite ways to get more greens powder into my life.

    I am a little confused about the whole body green powder! I was looking at the list of ingredients and I noticed that it contained natural flavor. If I remember correctly isn't natural flavor not so natural and that we should be avoiding it? Can someone shed some light, am I misunderstanding or misreading the ingredient label?
    • Yes! My preference is to avoid all products with "natural flavour". There are many people who enjoy the sweeter flavors of their superfood/green powders. My preference and recommendation is to always go with the "Natural" or unflavored option.

    Hi Meghan, I am pregnant and am looking to incorporate as much greens as possible into my diet. Are there any contraindications for pregnant women in greens powder? Also, any recommendations on sweetener other than honey? I have gestational diabetest and I am trying to manage my blood sugar. Thanks!
    • Your best bet is to contact the companies directly for the products you are interested in. I wish I could offer more guidance but when it comes to green foods or sweeteners, there is no one answer that is right for everyone.

    OMG, those cacao balls!!! I just made a batch with Amazing Grass chocolate greens powder and added a shake of cinnamon. Rolled them in hemp seeds and stuck them in the freezer to firm up...TO DIE FOR. Thanks for another winner, Meghan!
