Are you going green? Do you eat green foods? Are you being earth friendly? We can help you.

Many naturally green foods are available. Salad basics are the first green foods that come to mind. There are many Simple Truth® vegetable options in this category; broccoli, kale, green peppers, leeks, cucumbers, asparagus, green onions, to name a few. Add the line of fresh herbs, and the list almost doubles. My tummy is full already thinking about all of these wonderful, natural and green foods.

As we explore other areas of the grocery store, we can find seasonal green apples, green grapes, honeydew melon, kiwi and limes. There are also dried split peas, green lentils, pistachios, key lime juice - pie - or yogurt, mint ice cream, and salsa to add to the list. We can also find refreshing green beverages such as Simple Truth’s Green Jasmine Tea and Cucumber Melon Sparkling Beverage. With these options, we won’t need to add food coloring to get our “greens” for the day.

Simple Truth® also aids in our efforts to be green for earth’s sake. Many of the green foods listed meet organic certification requirements. Just look for the organic marking in the Simple Truth® green circular logo. These options allow us to eat delicious foods without the use of herbicides, pesticides and GMOs.
