Leafy Greens

What is a leafy green and why does everyone want us to eat them anyway? Leafy greens are the superman of vegetables. They are jam packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and are very low in calories! They help in reducing inflammation, reduce chronic disease risk, and are definitely good for your waistline!

Here is a list some of these super foods:
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Collard greens
  • Arugula

Now many people say they don’t like how these foods taste. A great way to get leafy greens into your diet without actually having to taste them is throwing kale or spinach into a smoothie! It may turn your smoothie green, but you won’t taste a thing and you will still get all the great benefits!
