'Eat your greens' - the statement that is etched into our memories at a young age. But how many of us are actually eating the amount of greens that our bodies need?
The majority of us do not have enough greens in our diets. The recommended intake of vegetables, according to the Australian Dietary Guidelines, is 5-6 standard serves of per day.
That can be a lot of vegetables to cook in one day! Luckily, we have a way to consume greens that is ridiculously convenient, highly nutritious and easy to prepare.
The organic fruit and vegetables in Bare Greens are freshly harvested, then freeze-dried straight away, which removes the water content from the greens, and locks in the nutrients. What we are left with is a concentrated greens powder that is bursting with potent vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients.
It is the perfect way to energise, revitalise and restore your body and support an energetic lifestyle.
Of course, organic and fresh greens are always best, but when these aren't readily available, Bare Greens is the perfect way to still get the nutrition you need, and at only $1.65 per serve, it’s a more economical way to get your organic veggie intake.
Steph Lowe, The Natural Nutritionist puts it well 'Bare Greens is like an insurance policy for your nutrition plan. Adding this booster ensures you cover your vitamin, mineral and phytonutrients needs with certified organic ingredients.'

Try having Bare Greens as your morning coffee replacement. The added ingredient of Matcha Green Tea has an energy boosting effect, and will help improve cognitive function.
