Pines International wishes everyone a happy Valentine’s Day and hopes everyone will use this special day to rejoice in healthy food choices for ourselves and those we love.

There is no better way to express our love than to support eating more of the darkly pigmented foods that medical researchers have associated with good health and long life.

A diet rich in organically-grown, antioxidant foods doesn’t have to be expensive. A fifty cent serving of any of Pines’ green superfoods provides more nutrition than a dollar’s worth of other more conventional green foods, such as spinach, kale and other dark greens leafy vegetables.

Certainly, as long as we can find organically grown traditional leafy greens, we need to eat all that we can, but studies show 9 out of 10 Americans do not eat enough vegetables. Other studies show that highly-pigmented vegetable foods help protect us against the diseases brought on by our “modern” processed food diet.

Pines Wheat Grass and other superfoods provide economical and convenient ways to increase nutrient-dense, darkly-pigmented vegetables in our daily diet. Pines superfoods are grown, harvested and packaged using the standards established in 1937 by Charles Schnabel.

The popular wheatgrass enthusiast, Steve Meyerowitz, “The Sproutman,” called Schnabel “the father of wheatgrass.” That’s because it was Schnabel and other scientists who unlocked the secrets of wheatgrass and other cereal grasses. It was their whole food cereal grass powders that doctors and hospitals used for the research that has served as the scientific basis for not only books on wheatgrass by Meyerowitz, but also books by Wigmore, Kulvinskas and other wheatgrass authors and proponents.

Pines Wheat Grass Tablets, Pines Barley Grass Tablets, Pines Alfalfa Tablets and Pines Green Duo Capsules are convenient for those situations when you are unable to consume enough dark green vegetables.

But if you have the time to prepare chlorophyll-rich meals, you can mix our superfood powders with water, juice, smoothies or even more complex recipes, please visit our recipe page for ideas. Currently, we are featuring Valentine’s Day treats using Pines Beet Juice Powder, which like Pines Green Superfoods is a highly pigmented, certified organic, non-gmo, high-antioxidant, high ORAC value, nutrient-dense, gluten-free, vegan superfood.

Have a Happy and Healthy Valentine’s Day everyone!
