Greens for Foundational Health

Greens for Foundational Health

When looking to construct a healthier diet, there are 4 key factors that Canada’s food guide suggests following:

1. Eat protein foods
2. Make water your drink of choice
3. Choose whole grain foods
4. Have plenty of vegetables and fruits

Each of these points are important in their own way for maintaining a healthy diet, however we’re going to explore why consuming vegetables, particularly green vegetables are critical for overall health.

The word ‘superfood’ has become increasingly popular in the food and nutrition industry in recent years due to how powerful it sounds. Superfood, by definition, is a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being. Green foods are one of the most abundant superfoods, containing diverse compounds that only exist in plants, making them only obtainable in a plant-rich diet.

These compounds are called phytochemicals, which are defined as active compounds found in plants. The problem is that it is nearly impossible to consume the optimal number of different plants in a regular diet, due to the sheer number of plants you’d need to be eating.

This is where greens powders come in. Greens powders pack a multitude of different green foods into one powder, so that you can get more phytochemicals into your diet through one beverage! Greens powders are a great way to supplement your diet with some extra nutrients you probably don’t get in a regular diet. They allow for an easy and efficient way to top up your vegetable and fruit intake and promote overall health!
