Get Your Greens On

Get Your Greens On

It’s no secret that we love greens at SWW™. They are nutrient-dense and vital to a healthy, balanced diet. But let’s get beyond the typical “they are good for you” conversation and dig into WHY they are good for us and how to pack even more of them into your daily routines.

Why we love greens

  • Rich in antioxidants, which help protect our cells from free radicals (aka the cause of many diseases) 
  • Functions as a prebiotic to feed the bacteria in our guts to keep our GI system strong and healthy 
  • Helps with alkalizing, which helps balance the acidity in our bodies while preventing mineral loss
  • Supports a healthy immune system
  • Amplifies the body’s ability to detox 
  • Balances blood sugar
  • Good for cardiovascular and liver health 
  • Can help improve cognitive function

While understanding the “why” behind greens is great, learning how to get them into your system is the key to unlocking their benefits. Here are five SWW™ approved ways to up your greens intake.

SWW™ Alkalize

We can’t recommend drinking your greens the SWW™ way enough. Not only does our SWW™ Alkalize Greens Powder knock out the alkalize step in our SWW Method™, but it also takes some of the pressure off your shoulders if your lunch or dinner isn’t heavy on the leafy greens. 

Sneak In Your Greens In Other Foods

This trick is especially great if you are trying to bulk up the greens in your kids’ diets. Hiding greens or zucchini in banana bread or muffins is a great way to dupe the picky eaters in your house. 


We love a smoothie for a quick, on-the-go meal or snack. Throwing in a handful of greens into your favorite recipe is a no-brainer to take your smoothie to the next level. 

Try A New Salad

Our SWW™ approved salad repertoire is extensive and the opposite of boring. Adding a side salad to your meal or even making one of our entree salads will help you reach those greens goals. 

Sautéed Greens

If you are more of a fan of cooked food or are looking for a healthy side to your next meal, we recommend giving your favorite greens a light saute.
