Bolthouse-Ribbon
Sippable superfoods are a daily wellness staple—whether it’s your daily green juice, your post-workout protein drink, or your cold-pressed custom blend. But how do you keep your combos interesting? Welcome to Back to the Rootsour sponsored series with 1915 Bolthouse Farms™ where we’ll highlight The Buzziest Things in a Bottle Right NowAKA the talk of your (healthy) summer. All of these of-the-moment ingredients can be found in 1915’s delicious, organic, non-GMO concoctions, which range from cold-pressed juices to plant-based protein drinks. (See the previous installment here.)

The ingredient: romaine lettuce

Kale’s been in the spotlight for the past few years, but romaine is stepping back onto the supergreen stage. It’s not as watery as some other greens (cough, iceberg), and doesn’t have kale’s bitter bite, which people either love or hate. Instead, romaine has a relatively mild taste, making it the perfect mixture in a morning smoothie.

What’s in it

Romaine is a great source of vitamin A (which is linked to good vision, cell growth, and a healthy immune system), and is also a good source of iron. And of course, it’s a leafy green, so it contains lots of other vitamins. Pro tip: Keep in mind that the darker the leaves, the greater their nutritional value.

Why it’s trending

Two words: kale fatigue. People have been on the hunt for a new green to fill up on, and thanks to romaine’s nutrient-dense profile and the fact that it’s literally in every grocery store, it’s a no-brainer go-to for anyone who is busy yet still wants to get some great greens.

Get more info on 1915’s Romaine juice blend—which includes lots of other yummy goodness like apples, cucumber, spinach, and lemon—at 1915organic.com. To live the green life, give your juice bottles an afterlife by using them as storage at your desk for odds, ends, and office snacks.
