Do they really contain only ONE POUND of greens?! They're so bulky! And I'm supposed to be eating 1 to 2 pounds of greens per day, right? Eeep! I eat half a tub per salad, and I thought I'd been doing well.
Does anyone here eat the greens that come in these tubs? Here we have the Earthbound Farms brand. If so, how much do you manage to eat at a time? Is it possible that it's okay to eat less in volume of these guys than romaine because they are darker, more nutrient dense greens?
I do a tub a day. I make two spinach smoothies and two salads. The smoothies really help and in the morning, it'll take you a long way-that's a 4 banana smoothie, with celery,coconut water and whatever fruit is available.
YEs, they should contain one pound. Its easy to eat a pound... Generally if I have to chew the pound I wont eat it, because to me, the mixes in the packages dont compare to fresh harvested greens from my garden - I encourage everyone to GROW their own greens, they taste better, are cheaper and are more nutrient dense provided you grow them with things like compost and rock dust.
I personally like to blend 1 # of the "boxxed mixxes" when I need to eat them, as to me its like eating imported bananas (taste like cardboard) comparted to fresh bananas in the tropics, not gassed, and many varieties.
Here are two ways I use the boxxed mixes:
Good lord, I can't believe you fit that whole tub full of greens into that one smoothie! I'm going to give that a try!
