Fill Your Life With Greens!

My favorite Plant-Based Dietitian shares her wealth of information and recipes for fresh leafy greens. I always love her quote, "Let thy leafy greens be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy leafy greens." Take a look at the nutrition packed in greens. Check out her links below!

Leafy green vegetables are extraordinary superfoods loaded with calcium, iron, plant protein, omega-3 fatty acids, eye health-boosting lutein and zeaxanthin, and other potent, disease-fighting phytochemicals, such as indoles, found in the cruciferous class of vegetables (e.g., Brussels sprouts, broccoli, bok choy, cabbage, and kale). Another phytochemical found in leafy greens is chlorophyll, the pigment that makes the plants green. This compound oxygenates and alkalizes the blood and is a powerful antioxidant.  Eat leafy greens both cooked and raw, in salads, green juices, green smoothies, stews, casseroles, and/or use them as a bed for whatever else you are serving/eating. Include them in your diet everyday for optimal health...
