Adding a supergreen powder to your daily routine is an easy way to boost your diet with phytonutrient antioxidants – great cancer-fighting molecules. Life powder by Terra Nova is one such product on the market and available in all good health stores across Ireland. With a label of ingredients that keeps on going and going, Life powder has a wide range of freeze-dried supergreens from spirulina and chlorella to wheatgrass and many other greens, berries, fungi, probiotics and enzymes.
You might think that it can be hard to squeeze a scoopful of supergreens into your diet, but there are a few easy ways to do it. The easiest is to add it to a smoothie (suggested recipe below) or alternatively, add it to a salad dressing, stirred into a plain yoghurt or, if all else fails, mix it into a small glass of water and drink it back.
Here at Happy Magazine we prefer it in a small, tasty smoothie as follows:
Good Morning Green Smoothie
One scoop Life powder
Half an organic banana
A handful of washed organic spinach
150ml ice-cold filtered water OR coconut water
150ml organic milk kefir (optional, as a natural probiotic boost)
One tablespoon of Helen’s Breakfast Seed Topping with Gojiberries (optional, as an omega 3 boost)
Add all to a blender and blitz. Drink it down and smile, knowing you are giving your body a fabulous supergreen boost for the day!
