The Superfood Equivalent of Vitamins

It was easy to eat tons of fruits and vegetables when both of my kids were at home. We'd go through a bag of lettuce over the course of one dinner. Now that my husband and I are empty nesters, it's taken quite some time to adjust to shopping for smaller portions.

Somehow I still end up throwing out wilted veggies, while finishing off every box of snacks, down to the last yummy crumb.

At the grocery store, I was looking for some sort of greens add-in for my oatmeal or smoothies. I always aim to get my day's worth of vegetables, without having to buy a ton of perishable produce. But everything I'd found has far too much protein or added sugars.

Online, I didn't really trust the quality of the generic stuff on Amazon. Then, in a random review, I heard about another brand, Paleovalley. I went to their website, and I loved their focus on natural, organic ingredients.

The Supergreens Complex looked like it was made for me.

Here's what it's in it:

  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Spirulina
  • Spinach
  • Kale Sprout
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Collard Greens
  • Parsley
  • Broccoli Sprout
  • Turmeric
  • Acerola
  • Carrot
  • Ginger
  • Lemon
  • Strawberry
  • Raspberry
  • Blueberry
  • Beet
  • Tart Cherry
  • Elderberry
  • Cranberry
  • Monk Fruit

It'd be impossible to source them from multiple farmer markets and stores in my area, not to mention grinding up that many ingredients.

Every ingredient is organic, and the range of vitamins and benefits is amazing. They also proudly don't include cereal grasses or anything that's difficult to digest.

It sounded like exactly what I was looking for, but with so many ingredients, I wondered if it would taste awful. Would it ruin my morning smoothies?

I thought I'd order it and give it a try. Paleovalley offers a 60 day money back guarantee anyway, so if it tasted like sawdust or straight broccoli, I could easily return it. Plus, they offer discounts if you order multiple bags or subscribe, so I ordered three just for the discounted price.

When it arrived, I immediately added it to my yogurt. With a couple stirs, the greenish powder mixed right into the vanilla.

I took a bite, and it was delicious! The flavor wasn't particularly strong, but it tasted hearty with notes of the lemon, ginger, and berry on top of all the super-healthy supergreens.

My husband stirred it into his oatmeal, and now he's also a fan. My daughter's heading home for a visit soon, so I thought I'd get her a bag. I know my kids genuinely like the taste of fruits and vegetables, but if it's this easy to get all those vitamins, I might as well pass it on.

We take supplements, too, but the Supergreens mix is such an incredible health and immunity boost! I'm definitely signing up for the Paleovalley subscription.
