We all know how important it is to get several servings of greens and veggies in each day. However, it isn’t always pleasant to eat your greens.
In fact, it has been revealed approximately 90% of Americans don’t eat the recommended 2-3 cups of vegetables each day.
Are you in the 90% of people who don’t eat enough veggies? I know I used to be
One thing that has made it easier for me to eat more veggies each day is incorporating Organic Green Power into my diet.
What is Organic Green Power?
Organic Green Power is a USDA Organic certified supplement for greens and veggies. It contains over sixty superfoods that have been dried into a powder form using a unique Opti-Dry process that ensures the raw qualities of the freshly picked veggies.
Organic Green Power can be mixed with water to make a quick drink or can be easily poured into any smoothie or protein shake for an added boost.
But what vegetables are actually in the packet? So glad you asked!
Add a variety of veggies to your diet!
There is a reason kale is one of the most popular superfoods out there. Kale is an extremely nutrient-dense leafy green. It contains important nutrients like vitamin K, vitamin A, and vitamin C. On top of that, it is powerful supporter of the immune system and brain development. When put to the test, kale is most definitely worth the hype!
Broccoli is loaded with vitamins and minerals, like vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber, and potassium. It is also an excellent source of antioxidants and contains bioactive compounds which may help reduce inflammation in the body.
This common green is in fact a powerful superfood! It provides a variety of vitamins and minerals and even contains calcium which supports healthy bones. According to Healthline, spinach may also improve oxidative stress, eye health, and blood pressure.
These veggies are infamous for not being fun to eat. Let’s face it, you probably love them or hate them! There is no in between.
However, even if you don’t love brussels sprouts, you need them for their awesome health benefits. They are an excellent source of vitamin K, which supports bone health and blood clotting to help wounds heal.

Why should you be eating cauliflower? It contains vitamin C and other important nutrients! It also contains fiber for healthy digestion. It is known for helping you feel more full which can lead to healthy weight loss.
