With all the high-calorie, low-nutrient food choices that often compete for attention in our fast-paced world, it’s important to remember our highly nutritious friends, the greens, sitting quietly in the produce aisle or local farmer’s market.
Always on your side, the greens are naturally low in calories and fat, and they’re packed with vitamins, minerals, proteins, phytochemicals, antioxidants and fiber. They promote vitality and help combat disease. And once you make your mind up to eat more of them, they can be surprisingly fun and easy to incorporate into your diet in lots of tasty and creative ways.
