My Favorite Supplements… Greens Powder

Good morning!!!  I hope your day is going well so far!! Mine started with a workout at home followed by a long walk with my pups and husband.  We try to get as many walks in as we can and lately we have been incorporating a lot more long morning walk/runs with the doggies because it has been way too hot to do that in the afternoon.  I’ve always been a morning exerciser, but my husband is another story.  He used to be (and sometimes still is) one of those people who sleeps until the very last minute that he HAS to be up. 🙂 . Although I do hit snooze a time or two (my husband would say it’s more like 10 times ;)) I do like to be up and enjoy my morning rather than get up and have to immediately start getting ready for the day.  I also really like my mornings that start with a workout and a walk with my pups because it helps me to wake up and I just feel better when I get my body moving first thing, especially on the days I am at a desk for most of the day.  

On the mornings I do exercise first thing, I am really hungry by the time I get showered and ready for the day.  My go-to quick breakfast that I can have on the go is still a big ole protein smoothie.  My base of my smoothie usually stays the same and I switch up a couple things each day.  One thing that has been consistently going into my smoothies is Greens Powder.  

I’ve heard and read a lot about greens powder over the years, but only really started consistently using it a couple months ago (after my surgery) when I couldn’t really eat many greens because they were too hard on my healing stomach.  I knew I would feel better if I got more greens into my system so that’s when I turned to greens powder.  You can absolutely drink it just mixed up in water, but yall, I’m not THAT adventurous.  The taste isn’t great, but I really can’t taste it when I hide it in my smoothie.  

I have used this brand.

And this brand.

Truthfully, I can’t tell a difference between this two, but the Purely Inspired one is organic and LESS expensive than the Helivin brand.  I got them both on Amazon.  

For the purpose of explaining the benefits of greens powder, I will tell you what all is in the Purely Inspired Organic Greens powder.  (Ps this post is not sponsored, I’m just simply sharing some products I like).  This greens powder contains 40 greens, grains, sprouts, fruits and veggies.  It also contains 18 vitamins and minerals and active probiotics.  That is a LOT of nutrients in one scoop. 

While we all know it is important to consume lots of greens, most of us don’t get near the daily amount prescribed from food alone.  This is where the greens powder comes into play.  I do recommend getting your greens in through your food, but we can’t be perfect everyday so I have found this is perfect to supplement my diet.  Greens powder has a ton of benefits ranging from boosting your immune system and energy, helping you absorb another nutrients, balancing hormone levels, and keeping your body in an alkaline state.  As always, consult your doctor if you plan to change/add anything to your normal diet.  

I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your day!!

Questions:

  1. What is one supplement you use daily? 
  2. Have you ever tried a greens powder?
  3. Have you ever kept track of how many servings of greens or veggie you eat in a typical day?
