We’re big fans of healthy eating around these parts and we thoroughly endorse the concept of eating five serves of vegetables every day but, honestly? Sometimes you just don’t have the time or the energy to get your full serve of greens in every day.
So what’s the solution then? Raw Superfood Powders of course! Here’s why you need to get them in your belly…
1. They are packed full of nutrients and can keep you cool
Going raw can actually be better for your health. Many nutrient-rich vegetables lose certain vitamins and minerals when they are cooked. Without exposure to heat, vegetables are able to retain their nutrients (which can then be passed on to you!). Raw foods are also perfect for hot, summer days as they contain high water content. This means that it can keep your body cool and hydrated.
2. They're super convenient
If you frequently forget to make yourself a salad to take to work, why not keep a packet of Republica Organic RAW Superfood Green Mix in your desk drawer? Keep a carton of long life coconut milk or water in the fridge, add some all natural protein powder and a protein powder shaker in your desk drawer and you’ve got everything you need to make a convenient and healthy afternoon snack. Just pop 2 teaspoons of Republica RAW Green Mix in your protein shaker with a scoop of natural protein powder, a cup of coconut milk or water and some ice. Shake it all up and get those greens into you. Winner.
3. They’re full of antioxidants
Antioxidants can be found in lots of different foods. Goji berries, pecans, blueberries… but these foods are seasonal and when it’s off season they can be difficult to find and expensive to buy. Green powder is the perfect replacement when high antioxidant foods are out of season. Antioxidants can help to negate the effects of ageing by aiding in the smoothing of wrinkles and adding moisture to the skin. They’ve also been shown to improve mood and memory.
4. You can add them to almost anything
Smoothies, cereal, pancakes, buddha bowls, green juices, porridge. You can even make green eggs with them by adding 2 teaspoons while you scramble. Hint: These are a great way to get kids to eat their greens by making green eggs and ham!
5. They keep you super full
Especially Republica Organic RAW Slimming Mix - which has pea protein in it to keep you fuller for longer. It’s perfect for an afternoon snack to keep you satiated until dinner time. It’s also great for the holiday season when you’re trying to avoid snacking at social engagements. If you fill up on a nourishing green smoothie before you go, you’ll be too full to eat party food.
6. They’re amazing for your gut health and immunity
