As I wrote in a recent post, green superfood powders are amazing for staying healthy, energized and lead while travelling.
After all, what are the alternatives?
Restaurant salads can be loaded with unhealthy extras, or just plain bland and expensive. Smoothie and juice bars are convenient, but do you want to be spending $10 for a nutrition boost?
This conundrum holds true whether you're on an extended trip or just looking for green nutrition on your lunch break at work. It can be tough!
Thankfully, Moringa and other superfood green powders are both relatively inexpensive and totally portable. In the case of Moringa, one serving also delivers substantially more nutrition than you’ll find in a handful of spinach.
If you're sold on the concept, you may be wondering about the practicalities. Exactly how does one do Moringa on the road?
The best way to take your green superfoods on the road is straight-up, with water. Bring a wide-mouth bottle with you, with an easy-to-clean lid. Even a mason jar will do.
Use the bottle to shake up your greens in water, and consume immediately.
Get in the habit of downing a glass of superfood greens before breakfast. If you leave it until after you’ve eaten, you may be too full. Even a teaspoon of Moringa leaf powder can quench your appetite, so taking it before a meal may help you consume fewer calories.
Juice certainly makes Moringa sweeter. However, finding a really pure, fresh juice on the road can be tough. Often, it’s from concentrate, in which case there’s little of the original fruit goodness left. If you do find fresh juice, you’ll pay a steep price, and juice has a high glycemic index.
Moringa's fibre, protein and healthy fats can help slow the rush of sugar from juice. Still, the best option is distilled or filtered water.
Sometimes we like to mix SuperLeaf Moringa with other greens. Variety is the key to health, after all, and if you're already a fan of wheatgrass or sea greens, you can certainly make a combo elixir.
You can also check out our SuperLeaf Moringa Capsules. Green nutrition has never been easier, and rest assured in knowing the capsules contain the same high quality, organic Moringa that we use in our loose powder.
We’d love to hear how you stay healthy on the road. Do you have favourite road trip snack foods? Are there super-healthy restaurants we should know about?
