Organic IMAGINE broths are familiar occupiers of our kitchen cebinet-but the new creamy smooth soups-Super Reds + Super Greens-make those blender whirling creations we attempt to make, irrelevant. Nutritious ingredients abound (carrots, onions, beets, potatoes, celery, red lentils, red bell peppers sweet potatoes, cranberries-Red...broccoli, potatoes, onions, peas, celery, spinach, carrots-Green)...and just the right amount of spices... both healthy options will hit the spot (we 'nuke to heat) -especially for those picky eaters who 'snack' vs sit-down meals. The texture is creamy -pourable, not super thick. The Super Reds-is warmly fragrant with hints of garlic/ginger---and the Super Greens-spiced up-touch of cumin (we think), garlic and ginger -with a tad of sea salt. USDA Organic/Vegan/Non-GMO/Dairy Free- both---chances are eating one's veggies will never be so liquid tasty-delivering meaningful percentages of Vitamin A and fiber. BONUS: 90-80 calories per serving, four servings per container. NICE.

Another way to get one's greens/fruits, by the scoop...ALOHA Superfood Greens-vegan 'superfood' powders-NON-GMO, Vegan, gluten-dairy FREE-add a sprinkle atop cereal or a lot -to drinks...contains wheatgrass juice and energy charger-r Spirulina, superfood wild blueberries plus mushrooms, peas and spinach. Delivers..12 essential nutrients, minerals and vitamins-including 200%-500% Daily Value of Vitamin D. In three flavors-Chocolate with Fair Trade Cacao, Berry, and Original.


Convenience Store Alert-a big hit at a recent trade show targeting the grab and go staples of gas stations from coast to coast...CHEESEWICH-smartly packages the protein part (14-16 grams-NO CARBS) of a sandwich less the bread part. Gluten free too.
