Whenever a new year comes around getting healthy seems to be the top goal for everyone. I have been on this journey for awhile. Like you, I have great days and not so great days…sometimes you just have to eat the donut! One thing I always do is honestly evaluate my efforts at the end of the week. Then I have that heart to heart with myself, you really should drink more water and less coffee.
No matter how well I am doing, there is always one area I really struggle with. Vegetables. I could place the blame in all sorts of places but the truth is I just have never liked the taste of green. Broccoli, green beans, and lima beans bring them on. Romaine lettuce or iceberg yes please. But do not come at me with anything resembling a leaf off the trees outside. That is why I just smile and nod when I see all these great green smoothies people make and rave about. Not for me. If it tastes green then count me out.
Recently I connected with Mercola who sent me some of their good-for-you products, including a supplement that will help get all that green goodness into your body. I was cautiously optimistic, it sounds perfect but what about the green taste?
Organic Greens. Could this be the solution to my green dilemma?
I am happy to say yes it does fix my problem. Organic Greens is all the healthy stuff without the flavor that puts some of us off of green things. No aftertaste and blends nicely into smoothies or just with water. The Organic Greens blend is smooth and has a light green tea flavor. I combined mine with organic raspberry Greek yogurt, organic juice, and a banana.
Now I can finally get all the benefits of actually hitting the 5 servings a day for vegetables! Take that cold and flu season. You're not bringing this house down!
Why Organic Greens?
I love coffee and I love tea. The Royal Matcha Green Tea from Mercola is an ideal, refreshing companion to my breakfast. Unlike traditional tea bags, the Royal Matcha Green Tea is in a powdered form. You simply mix it with hot water and enjoy. By not taking out the tea, you are not losing any nutrients that are found in tea.

I don’t eat as many greens and veggies, daily, as I should.
I am probably not getting as much as I should!

I agree. Getting vegetables in is hard! And it’s nice to find products like these that don’t taste like grass!
I am better at feeding them to my kids than myself.
Some days I’m really good with getting in my daily greens…others, not so much haha. I could definitely benefit from winning this giveaway!
I am sure I am not getting my daily greens but I am trying to be better about it for my New Years resolution.
Who won? 🙂
Organic greens seems like a good choice to try. It’s hard for me to eat the recommended amount of greens a day. Definitely worth to buy.
