    Im looking to supplement my daily food intake with some greens, and Ive read many good things about the powdered greens you can mix with water / juice. I do my best eating real veggies during the day, but on work days that can be tough considering Im an EMT and am confined to my ambulance for hours at a time. And Im not a big fan of most veggies anyways, chugging something gross would work better for me than chewing. :p I tried to search for this topic by the way, couldnt find anying much. ><

    So Im just looking for a good brand to pick up. Ive read about the GNC one, and something about one Randy Couture takes, I just want a good brand of greens thats not overly expensive. Thanks!

    Randy's is expensive but it looks like pretty good stuff. I use GNC's. Many other people use Greens+.

    I like greens+

    I also want to try trader joes greens. It is dirt cheap compared to most greens supplements.

    add another vote for greens+

    rather economical, and by FAR the best tasting greens supplement I've used, including the GNC one, Now's PhytoGreens, Randy's green pills, and Light Force (Randy's former greens).

    Greens+ gets my vote; if a powdered greens supplement is really cheap, and seems too good to be true, it probably is. IMO, you get what you pay for in this department.

    When I used to work straight EMS and we did roving deployment, I'd carry my powdered greens in a shaker cup, and just add water when I had a chance. I sympathize, bro. For many years I ate many meals looking out the windshield of an ambulance.

    NOW's Phytogreens are about $16/mo and are very comparable to most other greens products I've checked.

    Trader Joe's is 9.99 per bottle. I don't remember off hand how many servings that gets you, but it's pretty cheap.
