GET WINTER READY WITH SUPER GREENS!
Gone are the days of beachside hangs and backyard barbecues—the chilly days and nights have officially arrived, and instead, we’re opting for cosy nights in, comfy sweats and a binge-worthy series to get us by (Daisy Jones on repeat anyone?). As the cooler months creep upon us (why can’t we just skip winter?), so does the winter cold and flu season, and to ensure we’re not wiped out for weeks with the sniffles, it’s important to nourish our bodies with the right nutrients that not only support our immune system but keep our energy up too.
To help us get winter ready, we’ve reached out to Happy Way nutritionist Rachel, who shares the #1 essential Happy Way product that she can’t live without during the off-season, and why it should be at the top of your shopping list for your next Happy haul. Not only is it filled to the brim with all-natural, raw organic superfood ingredients that provide an abundance of mental and physical benefits, but it also tastes delicious and is a super easy supplement to include in your daily routine. Thanks Rach!
WHAT ARE SUPER GREENS?
Think of Happy Way’s Super Greens Powder as an all-natural, nutrient-boosting blend of fruits, veggies and powerful plant-based ingredients designed to nourish and nurture both the mind and body. Packed with antioxidant-rich superfoods like organic leafy greens (kale, spinach, wheatgrass and kelp) and quinoa, it’s a supplement that’s formulated to promote energy and vitality, and improve overall health and well-being. There’s also the inclusion of both pre and probiotics that provide added nutritional support, allowing me to get the most out of each day.
WHY I TAKE SUPER GREENS
I love taking Happy Super Greens Powder because it’s such an easy way to boost my micronutrient intake and meet my recommended intake of 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of veggies per day. Some of the ingredients you will find in Happy Way’s Super Greens Powder are…
- Organic wheatgrass
- Organic barley grass
- Organic maca powder
- Organic spirulina
- Organic kale
- Organic kelp
- Organic spinach
- Organic quinoa sprouts
- Organic acerola
Happy Way’s Super Greens Powder is packed with nutrients, so I try to include it in my diet every day, if not every other day, as it delivers so many health benefits. Many of the ingredients are high in antioxidants, which help to detoxify the body and boost the immune system, making it the perfect supplement to add to your routine as we head into the winter months and the dreaded cold and flu season. The ingredients also have anti-inflammatory properties, which help to support my immune system and decrease the risk of chronic diseases later in life. The pre and probiotics in Happy Way’s Super Greens Powder promote good gut health and digestion and help when I suffer from any symptoms of an upset stomach, such as bloating or cramps.
For me, it’s a no-brainer—if something that tastes delicious also does so many amazing things for my mind and body, it’s definitely going to be a daily essential and a must-have in my kitchen cupboard.
HOW I ENJOY SUPER GREENS
Enjoying a glass of greens juice has become a morning ritual for me, as I find that getting that hit of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants first thing is a great way to kick-start my day. I simply add 1 scoop of Happy Way Super Greens Powder to a glass or shaker of water and I’m good to go in the morning—I’ll often enjoy it as an all-natural afternoon pick me up too.
The uses for Happy Way’s Super Greens Powder don’t stop there. A scoop of Super Greens is a great way to amp up the nutrient content of your daily smoothies, and it can also be mixed through yoghurt, protein balls and various baked goodies. With a fresh, fruity, tropical flavour, it makes a great addition to many recipes!
Whilst I love the convenience of a simple greens juice of Super Greens Powder mixed with water, I do have a favourite smoothie recipe that I make time and time again. Whether it’s in the morning for breakfast or as an afternoon snack, this smoothie recipe is full of goodness and flavour and keeps me feeling full and energised until dinner.
