Greens are superhero health protectors from a wide range of chronic diseases. Eating a diet rich in fruits and veggies, specifically the dark leafy green kind found in Dream Greens can lower our chances of developing heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, Type II Diabetes & some types of cancer. Eating a wide variety of fresh, colorful fruits & vegetables ensures we get a variety of the key nutrients we need for maximum protective benefits.

Baby greens are rich sources of the nutrients we need to keep our bodies healthy and nourished. They are low in calories, fat and sugars, yet high in crucial micronutrients such as Vitamins C, A and K and minerals like magnesium, folate and calcium. All these micronutrients catalyze the intricate processes that take place in our bodies at every moment, such as development and repair of joints, hair, skin & nails. For example, the Vitamin C found in baby Dream Greens is a precursor for the synthesis of collagen, which is what keeps our skin elastic and healthy throughout our lives.

Choosing the right foods is the key to staying energized and focused throughout the day. Baby Dream Greens are rich in the nutrients needed to promote muscle tissue health, eye health and a healthy metabolism, including magnesium, selenium, iron and Vitamin A. Additionally, greens are full of water, so eating them actually helps us stay hydrated, which is key for focus and performance.

Mineral-rich pumpkin seeds and beets, and fiber and protein-packed beans and quinoa complement baby Dream Greens’ vitamins and minerals, so this slow-digesting dish will keep you comfortably satisfied and laser-focused all day long.
In addition to being filled with essential micronutrients, Dream Greens are good sources of fiber and water, which help us with digestion and hydration. Plus, how we eat is just as important as what we eat. Slowing down and taking time to savor every bite of our meals and snacks is important for learning to listen to hunger cues and for promoting good digestion. Simply adding greens into our favorite comfort foods is an easy and enjoyable way to get more greens in!
