The recently released 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans serve as yet another reminder that the majority of us could be consuming more servings of vegetables. A surprising 87 percent of Americans fail to eat enough vegetables to meet these recommendations, with the average adult getting less than two servings per day.
The new guidelines include recommendations about what components should be limited in a healthy diet. At the top of this list are saturated fats, trans fats, added sugars, and sodium.
Many turn to drinks and or smoothies that contain vegetables and fruits as a convenient way to complement their daily intake. Though that may be a good idea in theory, greens drinks on the market today can lack flavor or contain a high amount of sugar.
Enter Isagenix Greens™—a concentrated drink powder created through a special cold spray-dried process. Isagenix Greens preserves key phytonutrients from more than 30 ingredients for just 30 calories per serving. The best part: Isagenix Greens contains only one gram of sugar and no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. Among the green ingredients included in Isagenix Greens drink powder are spirulina, ginkgo biloba, parsley, green tea, and kale.
There’s more than just a blend of green foods in Isagenix Greens, too. The drink contains rice bran as a source of dietary fiber, along with milk thistle, and grape seed extract.
Here are a few nutritional tips to start your new year off right:
- Make every effort to consume up to nine servings of fruits and vegetables daily, especially in the form of leafy greens.
- Cut out foods that lack nutrients, such as sugary drinks, sodas, junk foods, and high-calorie snacks.
- Enjoy Isagenix Greens every day by adding it to your water or mixing it into your IsaLean® Shake.
Ideally, everyone should be meeting the daily recommendations by eating more fruits and vegetables while limiting added sugars, saturated fats, and sodium. With Isagenix Greens, you complement your efforts with a drink powder that tastes delicious and convenient.
