Our all-in-one nutritional insurance
Sometimes, especially when we are traveling or just have a busy day ahead of us, I tend to worry about Mila’s meals and giving her enough nutrients. So when I read about a green powder (Vitamineral Green) on a friend’s blog (she shares amazing recipes for kids and adults there too!) I had to try it. So basically it is a powder made of all things green you can find from the land (nettle leaf – parsley – wheat grass- chickweed etc), from the waters (spirulina & chlorella) and from the oceans (kelp – dulse – nori etc) – just to name a few. It’s a super potent combination of nature’s most nutritive superfoods, from vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, to fibers and all essential amino acids (protein).
We started adding it to Mila’s breakfast a few days a week, but switched to adding it to her daily juice instead. This way the breakfast tastes like it is suppose to taste and the juice, since it’s a green smoothies most days anyways, doesn’t really change its flavor with the green powder so it’s a smooth ride in the morning. The powder doesn't have a very strong taste, but it does changes the flavors a bit. You can also just mix it with a little bit of juice, it will be more intense but less to swallow and deal with.
It’s not a meal replacement but a great source of most nutrients a growing child (or adult) needs. I know if she has this in the morning I know most nutritional needs will be covered for the day, which makes the following meals less worrisome.
The above photos happened after Mila got her hands on the powder and smeared it all over her face.
