The veggies blend contains a mix of dark leafy greens (broccoli, kale, spinach, and alfalfa sprouts), as well as carrots, beetroot powder, and nutrient-rich sea veggies, including kelp, spirulina, and chlorella. Adding it to the dry ingredients while baking is a simple way to increase your daily vegetable, antioxidant, and fiber intake.*

Otherwise, keep them green for a spooky Halloween look. “Lots of options,” she adds.
