Sip Your Greens this National Eat Your Veggies Day!
It might not shock you to hear that one of our favorite holidays to celebrate here at Suja is….(drum roll please) National Eat Your Veggies Day! This annual extravaganza lands on June 17, 2022 and we view it as a healthy reminder to check-in with our daily veggie consumption!
Did you know that according to the CDC, 1 in 10 adults meet the recommended requirement of 2-3 cups of veggies per day? Candidly, this doesn’t surprise us one bit. Chances are, you’re a busy bee, wearing multiple hats and juggling multiple roles. The idea of assembling a mixed green salad filled with organic veggies sounds enticing, but you might not have the time to do the cumbersome prep work. We get it. For most of us, convenience is key, which is why we love bottling fresh USDA organic greens into pure liquid sunshine to gulp down on-the-go! It’s easy, quick, and the best way to check that daily veggie box.
Most of us already know that eating or “sipping” our veggies is naturally good for the body, but the health benefits are truly profound. According to Lisa Valente, M.S., RD via EatingWell, meeting your daily quota can fight inflammation thanks to high levels of antioxidants. Specific potassium-rich veggies, such as spinach or beets, can also balance out high-sodium diets, improving heart health and blood pressure. You’ll also reap the external benefits of drinking your veggies with glowing skin! SO many veggies like celery and cucumber contain high levels of water, keeping your skin hydrated all-day long.
So basically, what we’re trying to say is — there’s nothing to lose by consciously making an effort to “get your greens on.” If you want to sip on your veggies in an effortless way, we have you covered. Here are three of our best-selling, green drinks to get you started!
1.) Uber Greens: We totally understand that juicing at home might take hours — plus the clean-up is usually excruciating. This is where our chef-crafted, cold-pressed Uber Greens comes in. Like the name suggests, be prepared for a rush of all the best veggies out there, like cucumber, celery, green chard, lettuce, kale, spinach, and parsley.
To enhance these greens, we’ve added a burst of tangy citrus, including lemon and grapefruit. Last but not least, you’ll also detect revitalizing mint and spearmint tea, which makes this the ultimate healthy and low-sugar summer beverage to sip on!
“I absolutely love this product. I drink it after almost every intense workout to give my fatigued muscles the nourishment they need to get stronger and thrive. This drink gives me such a boost of energy after every sip, and just overwhelming happiness. I honestly am in love with Uber Greens and genuinely think it’s wellness, health and serotonin in a bottle! 10/10 would recommend it to everyone I know,” said verified buyer Naomi.
2.) Mighty Dozen: If you’re looking for a nutrient-dense green juice with a slightly sweeter twist, then it doesn’t get better than Mighty Dozen. We like to think of it as a good “entry point” into the green juice universe!
Along with the best, hand-selecting veggies including collard greens, kale, spinach, cucumber, and celery, we add crisp apples to give you a hint of sweetness. You’ll also find lemon, peppermint tea, spearmint tea, ginger, spirulina, chlorella, and barley grass — essentially the epitome of wellness in one bottle!
“I first found Suja [Mighty Dozen] almost 10 years ago in a local health food store and I’ve been drinking it almost daily ever since. I did research on the different types of juices out on the market and this by far exceeded all expectations. All other lines had added sugar or were only 10% actual juice. As long as you keep your product cold, the taste is perfect. I buy in bulk and will continue as long as this company is alive,” said verified buyer Victoria.
3.) Essentials Probiotic Shot: Perhaps you don’t have the time to gulp down a full green juice! This is where our 2 fl. oz. Essentials Probiotic Shot does the trick!
This chef-crafted power shot is packed with all of the cold-pressed greens you need to propel you throughout your busy day! Not only do you get spinach, wheatgrass powder, celery, kale, and collard greens, but you’ll also detect zesty citrus notes of lemon, pineapple, and ginger.
This little efficacious shot is also filled with adaptogenic reishi, zinc and live probiotics to support your immune system! To no surprise, you’ll get a healthy dose of Vitamins A, C, D and E. Essentially, it’s all of the wellness nutrients you need to feel your best.
We hope that you feel more inspired this National Eat Your Veggies Day! If you’re ready to take your veggie game to the next level, be sure to snag our top suggestions to start sipping your greens!
