5 Reasons To Eat Greens + Organic Girl Giveaway


Everyone’s always either talking or instagramming about green juice, green salad, and green smoothies.
While I’m not one to talk, I’m sure you are wondering what’s so good about them anyways?
5 Reasons To Eat (or Drink) Your Greens:

1. Green leafy vegetables are nutritional powerhouses, rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals.
For example, one cup of greens provides 9x the minimum Vitamin K requirement.

2. Greens are full of fiber, which means they keep you full and aid in weight loss efforts.

3. Great source of folate, which reduces your risk of memory loss and cardiovascular disease.

4. Greens are anti-inflammatory due to high levels of quercetin, especially in kale.

5. High levels of magnesium and B-Vitamins give you energy
and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Now that you know the nutritional benefits of the all-powerful greens,
it’s time to get some!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I post a lot of meals involving greens like
spinach, kale, collards, romaine, and arugula.
Not all greens are created equal, so whenever I go to the supermarket
(usually Whole Foods or The Health Nut here in NYC), I like to stick to OrganicGirl.
I always find them to be the freshest and most diverse on the shelf, so it’s safe to say they’re a staple in my house.

organicgirl SUPERGREENSNow I want you to try them, so I’m hosting a special giveaway in honor of the OrganicGirl SUPERGREENS!

The SUPERGREENS are a combination of  baby red chard, baby tat soi, baby spinach,

FREE Healthy Cookies “Ginny Bakes” Giveaway!

With Spring finally making its way in to New York City, it’s time to do a Spring pantry cleaning and make way for new healthy treats. It can get really tough to maintain a clean and healthy diet during Winter months and sometimes we can let ourselves go.

Fortunately though, the sun is coming out and it’s time to get back on track! The best way to phase into a cleaner eating routine is to replace any old sugary treat habits with new delicious ones that go hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle. While I was at Expo West I connected with Ginny Bakes, a gluten-free organic baked goods company dedicated to serving health-conscious individuals.
I tried some cookies and I am hooked!

Introducing The Best New Snack Bar: Tara Bites (ChocoCherryCrumble)

I’ll have to admit. I was never much of a snack “bar” person.

I rarely went into the store to pick up a protein or meal replacement
bar, simply because it never really appealed to me.. that is until I visited the
Natural Foods Expo in 2012 and was inundated with samples after samples
of bars. And right then and there I think I fell in love. Hard!

What happened next? I created my own. And now it’s your turn to fall in love.

Tara Bites is my new line of guilt-free indulgences starting with the Tara Bites Bar. 

Our first flavor is the perfect balance of chocolate, cherries, and crumble infused with healthy goodness.
The bars are certified Vegan, enrolled in the Non-GMO project, and undergoing Gluten-Free certifications.

At under 190 calories, Tara Bites is the ideal go-to breakfast, pre/post workout, or anytime snack to fuel
you with nutrient-rich Omega-3 Fatty acids, fiber, and flavor. I formulated the bar based on my background as a holistic health coach, yogi, and nutrition expert, so it is 100% clean and pure.

You’ll be taken at the first bite. Look out for our official launch in stores and online coming soon.
In the meantime, follow us on Instagram @TaraBites, Twitter @TaraBitesBar, and Facebook Tara Bites.
