Brigitte’s Naturally Alive juice has a nice consistency to it. It’s not chunky, but it’s not completely smooth. It makes me feel like I’m having a real meal. With 10 grams of protein, and 8 grams of fiber, I love grabbing the Protein + variety as the perfect way to start my day.

In an ideal world, we’d all eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible — at least 2 ½ to 3 cups per day according to the USDA. Leafy greens are a rich source of minerals (including magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium) and vitamins, including vitamins C, E, K, and many of the B vitamins. Perhaps the star nutrient in leafy greens is vitamin K: About 2 ½ cups of leafy greens provides at least nine times the minimum recommended intake of vitamin K.
