Question Powdered Veggies?

Hello all! I am having trouble fitting 4 cups of veggies into my daily diet. I found this product at the local box store called Amazing Greens which basically appears to be freeze-dried (to keep all nutrients) powdered veggies. Thoughts on replacing at least 1 or 2 veggie cups with scoops of this which I can easily mix into drinks or food????

A bit of background: I am also using the Orbera gastric balloon which limits the amount of space in my stomach for food. I have been separating meals from drinks/water by 30 min to make enough space for the meal.

I've used greens before to supplement my diet. Since you also have the gastric balloon, it puts you in an unique situation. Most people on P1 really load up on the veggies due to the limited amount of food and the veggies help to create fullness. I say give it a go and monitor the way your body responds.
