|BeWell Superfood Greens|
It can't just be a problem for me can it? I didn't use to have any veggies with my breakfast until I discovered green smoothies, which meant I had to up my game come lunchtime. Dinner has always been easy to fit lots of vegetables into and fruit can be consumed as a snack, but I would still have days when I came up short on my 5 serves of veg and 2 of fruit.
Next, I heard that instead of 7 a day we should be eating 10 a day and I must admit my first reaction was to throw my hands up in the air and give up!
Now some readers will know that I embarked on a healthy weight loss journey in December 2017 and this has been successful in both weight loss and health benefits - I have so much more energy it's like I've rediscovered my inner spark! My journey uses Arbonne's 30 Days to Healthy Living and Beyond plan and it was through this plan that I was introduced to the BeWell Superfood Greens (or Greens Balance as it used to be called).
So, What exactly are BeWell Superfood Greens?
The BeWell Superfood Greens is a deep green powder that reminded me (in color and smell) of spirulina when I first saw it. This is hardly a surprise when you look at the ingredients and see that it contains this nutrient-dense alga along with wheat and barley grass and an array of different fruits and vegetables.
In just one scoop of this powder you really can say you're eating a rainbow! A few of the fruit and vegetables that are in this powder are kale, broccoli, pomegranate, tomato, pumpkin, mango, blueberry and purple sweet potato. As well as containing all the nutrients different colored fruit and veg provide, this powder also contains a powerful prebiotic fibre to help support a healthy digestive system.

How Do I Use BeWell Superfood Greens?As it's in powder form this makes it very easy to use, some people mix it in a little water and drink it like a shot of wheatgrass. When I first saw and smelt the Greens Balance (as it was originally called) I thought people were crazy taking it this way so I did the following ...
I like to add a scoop into my breakfast smoothie, when I add cacao powder or a handful of berries I find that I can't even taste the greens balance, yet I'm getting all of that goodness.
I usually only have one scoop a day, but when my family (and a number of work colleagues) were sick with a flu virus earlier this year I actually added a scoop to my lunchtime shake as well. I'm not a doctor or nutritionist, but I always believe that a good immune system requires good nutrition which is why I did this. It may just be a coincidence, but I never got the virus despite being surrounded by all the germs!
After I had been adding it to my shakes for several months I did try it as a shot and I quite liked it that way, until I discovered something called the Green Ogre Drink and now that's the way I like to take my shot of Superfood Greens every day!
You can also add the Superfood Greens to dishes when cooking to increase the vegetable content, I haven't personally tried this, but it sounds like a great idea.
Does It Really Help Though?
"It sounds good, but how do I know if it's doing anything for me?" This is often a problem when you're doing lots of things to improve your health and you're not sure which ones are really necessary, but I will NOT be giving up my greens balance ......
I am feeling a lot healthier this year and my energy levels are fantastic, my immune system is awesome, my hormones are balanced, my rheumatoid arthritis is not only under control, but I wake up to no pain or stiffness at all. Let's just say that what I'm doing is working really well. Of course everyone is different and you should always contact a medical professional.
A few weeks ago I actually ran out of my BeWell Superfood Greens (I thought I had another tub, but didn't), my order was delayed and I went 1 day with only half a scoop and 3 days with no greens. Now I didn't think much of it until I got home from work on the 2nd day of not having any and I was really tired. When I said to my husband how shattered I felt his first response was have you eaten enough? I had eaten plenty, but that's when I realized that what was missing was the greens balance.
I am not letting the tub get too low before re-ordering again!
Do I Need BeWell Superfood Greens if I Have a Good Diet?
I think I have a good diet, I have at least half a plate of vegetables with my main meal every night, lunches have been a problem in the past, but the past couple of years they have usually included either a salad or a vegetable soup (depending on the season). Breakfast would often be my downfall, in the summer I would have some fruit and occasionally some veg included, but in winter when I used to have porridge there wouldn't be any fruit or veg.
I still feel I need greens balance. Only you know how much you eat, but I personally don't think you can ever have too much good nutrition. I seriously am now considering it to be as important as my health insurance.
