March is here!  And no better time to pay tribute to our favorite food colour: GREEN!  Last year we posted all the great reasons why you should eat more greens…this year we want to show you how easy it is to get the GREENS IN!

Why We Love the Color GREEN!!

Making sure you have enough greens in your daily diet can be a difficult task but here are some easy ways to add greens into your normal meals. We took a typical diet day in North American and added a Green substitute to each meal.


Normal Day
Green Day


#1 Coffee, eggs and orange juice

#2 Oatmeal with fruit

Start your day with a better than average multiple vitamin.  The NEW phtomulti from metagenics, offers the full vitamin and mineral spectrum PLUS a phytonutrient profile.  One of these is like consuming 5 batches of dark greens!Add spinach/ green peppers/ minced broccoli to eggs.  Also check out our recipe of the month for kale and eggs 

Savory Oats: Cook Plain Oats with water and add your choice of steamed or sautéed veggies. Top with an egg for extra protein and season with salt, pepper, or a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.


Soup and sandwich Make sure the soup has plenty of veggies, can even add chopped kale. Add spinach to your sandwich and a side of carrots and cucumbers.


Fruit Smoothie Add spinach/kale and green matcha powder.


Grilled chicken (or any meat) with mashed potatoes Skip the mashed potatoes and do a side of sweet potatoes and green beans or green asparagus.  Also try cooking your veggies first and putting them on the table before dinner is served.  Great pre-meal munchie, especially if there are little ones at home!


Granola Bar Try kale chips or carrots/ celery with an almond butter dip
