Paddle Healthy | Greens to Go

Let’s face it: a lot of us just don't eat our vegetables. Missing out on greens means missing out on all the nutritional benefits that come with them. Whether you're a picky eater or a veggie hater, you no longer need to worry about gnawing on kale to get your green intake. In this edition of Paddle Healthy, we're taking a look at packs of dehydrated greens that will not only fulfill daily servings of vegetables (and fruit in some cases), but also contain beneficial vitamins and minerals. And, most importantly, all of these go down quick and easy. —Shari Coble

Aloha Daily Goods

It's like a little gift for your health; the Aloha Daily Goods Greens Collection packs a powerful punch of nutrition (and natural energy) for its petite and unassuming packaging. Available in the original Greens, as well as berry and our favorite, chocolate, the Daily Goods Greens tastes great in beverages, smoothies, and protein shakes, or even added to baking mixes (we recommend using the chocolate or berry mixes in pancakes and muffins). Gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free as well as non-GMO, the product, in addition to the entire Aloha brand, focuses on pure, whole products that aren't just good for the body, but good for the planet—and we're into that.
