Now It’s Easier to Get Your 5 a Day!

31 July 2015

Question: How many servings of fruits and vegetables did you eat yesterday? If you said anything less than five, you’re not getting enough of nature’s goodness and your body could be dragging. Rachel Beller, RD, founder of the Beller Nutritional Institute, in an interview for the Huffington Post, says that even five isn’t enough to keep a body healthy and strong. She recommends you eat 4-5 cups, or 10 servings each day. Beller also recommends you “go heavier on the vegetables, (approximately 5 servings) and lighter on the fruit (approximately 2-3 servings).” So, now you’re thinking how the heck do I do that?! Well, we’ve made it easy. Our new EBOOST® SPRUCE™ has three true servings of vegetables in each packet. How do we do it? We freeze- and air-dry farm-fresh spinach, kale, broccoli, asparagus and cabbage. The flavor and nutritional goodness are all there, only the moisture has been removed. So you get not just the vitamins and key minerals from these fantastic non-GMO grown vegetables, each SPRUCE serving also packs six grams of fiber.
Nutritionist, author and entrepreneur Heather Bauer, says “SPRUCE is genius! Finally an on-the-go, portable, NON GMO, farm fresh, option for the most busy people to get THREE servings of veggies, six grams of fiber and only two grams of sugar all in one packet. You never have to leave home without your greens again!”
In addition to these great green veggies, SPRUCE gives you a natural boost with the coffee cherry. The coffee cherry is jam packed with antioxidants and is a free-radical fighting machine. Not to mention, the natural caffeine gives SPRUCE a natural energy kick you can feel. But we didn’t stop there, you’ll also get the benefits of Agave inulin. Inulin is a complex carbohydrate that adds fiber to SPRUCE. It is known as a prebiotic because it supports healthy bacteria in the gut. And because we know you working hard, we added ginger root as well! Ginger is perhaps best known for adding pungency to meals and calming a nauseous stomach. It contains compounds known as gingerols that may aid in the relief of muscle discomfort following tough workouts.
Heen Sasithorn, model, is a convert too. She says, “I've always been into juicing but it can be time consuming and costly. Finding SPRUCE has been amazing, it tastes great, convenient and mixes so easy. I always travel with a few packets of SPRUCE since it can be a challenge to find healthy eating alternatives.”
Mix SPRUCE with water, milk, juice, a protein shake or smoothie. In a few moments, the green goodness will lift you up. Getting three servings of vegetables has never been so easy, tasted so good, and felt so energizing. So now you have no excuse not to eat your veggies - no matter where you are!
