It’s Week 4 of the Rainbow Series and today is all about green.
Green food helps lower blood pressure, improve heart function, reduces cardiovascular disease, and improves vision. And oh yeah, it also improves skin health, leaving you with a radiant, youthful glow. In part, this is due to lutein, the powerful antioxidant found in greens; it’s also attributed to it’s high concentration of chlorophyll, which increases blood flow and oxygen in the body. Green are also loaded with fiber, calcium, vitamin K, and vitamin E.
Green vegetables like broccoli, spinach, green beans, asparagus, cucumbers, celery, peppers and artichokes are supremely easy to eat on a daily basis. Add asparagus and broccoli to your morning omelet, blend kale, cilantro and cucumber into a smoothie at lunch, and saute Brussels sprouts with coconut oil for a tremendously tasty dinner dish. However you do it, get your greens everyday!
