Simple Truth

Naturally Green Foods

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 my mind and probably yours, too. There are many options for this category in the Simple Truth line. Add the line of fresh herbs, and the list almost doubles! We can then expand the vegetable list to include broccoli, kale, green peppers, leeks, cucumbers, asparagus, green onions, celery, peas, green beans and avocados. 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 all of 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 that we carry do meet the organic certification requirements. Just look for the organic marking in our Simple Truth green circular logo. These options allow us to eat delicious foods without the use of herbicides, pesticides and GMOs. When possible, we also make the packaging earth friendly (look for that blog soon).

We want to help you go green with our bountiful supply of naturally green foods and by being earth friendly.

How will you go green?

By being vegetarian and cutting meat from my diet, I am helping eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from cattle and unnecessary animal cruelty that occurs on large commercial farms and stockyards. I have also started using less plastic and other packaging.
