The majority of people's diets fall drastically short everyday getting enough fruits and veggies. I know mine does!

What is ORAC Value?
ORAC Value stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity. This is a test tube analysis used to determine the antioxidant power of foods, vitamins, supplements and other chemicals.

The importance of ORAC value in fruits and vegetables:
The ORAC values help in determining which fruit and vegetables have greater antioxidant power and are better at protecting the body from free radical damage to the cells. Free radicals are molecules that harm healthy body cells.*

Many experts recommend 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day.

My Antioxidant Omega 3 Greens Review!
If you have followed my blog for a few months now you'll remember that I was really into making my own green smoothies several times a week. I even got Ethan to drinking them with me! As soon as I became pregnant with baby #2 the last thing I wanted to consume was a green smoothie! Sadly, this is the most crucial time to continue to drink those green smoothies. Tropical Traditions recently sent me the Antioxidant Omega 3 Greens in the berry flavor to review. I was really happy to try this product out because I knew I needed to get back to drinking my green smoothies again.

The Antioxidant Omega 3 Greens is a very fine powder than smells very much like, greens of course. Directions say to add 1 scoop to 8 to 10 oz. of water. I like my green smoothies icy cold so I put mine in the blender along with a frozen banana and a couple ice cubes. If you are running short on time or don't want to make a mess by getting out the blender, I'm sure just added it to water like the directions say would be perfectly fine. Since the powder is really fine it blended up very well. In fact, much better than using fresh greens.

This mixes up to be a very tasty green smoothie, much better than I expected from a powdered green drink. It is definitely sweet enough and does not need any added sweetener at all. Overall, I am really happy with the Antioxidant Omega 3 Greens for several reasons.
  • Quick and convenient to make
  • Has significantly more nutrition than the typical green smoothie you would make from scratch plus has Omega 3s
  • Organic ingredients and sweetened with stevia
  • Considering the power packed nutrition in this canister compared to how much it would cost to buy all the organic ingredients to make something similar, this is a very reasonably priced product!
Tropical Traditions has yet again made another impressive product!

                                    I learned that it has Spirulina...which is a freshwater algae containing an incredible source of nutrients. It provides generous amounts of Beta-Carotene, Vitamin B-12, Iron and Chlorophyll.

                                    Sounds pretty impressive to me!

                                    I learned that Chlorella, a
                                    single-cell freshwater algae is a rich and balanced source of many nutrients that are essential to health. Chlorella contains high levels of chlorophyll, vitamin B12, beta-carotene and RNA/DNA when compared with other whole-foods. More than 20 vitamins and minerals are found in chlorella, including iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, pro-vitamin A, vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6 and B12, biotin, inositol, folic acid, plus vitamins C, E and K.

                                    I like their Coconut Oil

                                    I learned that their Omega 3 Greens contain Apple Fiber Pectin which is helpful in maintaining good digestive health.

                                    An ingredient in the Omega 3 Greens is Spirulina, which has the highest protein of any natural food and contains more antioxidants than most regular whole foods.
