Eat Your Greens!

It's a New Year and it's a great time to start new or reinforce existing healthy habits. One of the best things you can do for your body is eating lots of green veggies everyday. Here are some reasons that greens are so good for you.

Eating greens daily has numerous benefits for our bodies and overall health. Here are just a few reasons why you should incorporate more greens into your diet:

  1. Greens are packed with beneficial nutrients. Leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and broccoli are loaded with vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, C, and K, as well as calcium and iron. These nutrients are essential for maintaining a healthy immune system, strong bones, and good vision.

  2. Greens are low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, greens can be a great addition to your diet because they are low in calories but high in fiber, which can help you feel full and satisfied.

  3. Greens may reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Some studies have shown that a diet rich in greens may help lower the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes. This may be due to the high levels of antioxidants and other plant compounds found in greens, which can help reduce inflammation and protect against free radical damage.

  4. Greens can improve digestion. The fiber in greens helps to bulk up the stool and move it through the digestive system, which can help prevent constipation and other digestive issues.

  5. Greens are versatile. There are so many different types of greens to choose from, and they can be incorporated into a wide variety of dishes. You can add spinach to smoothies, sauté kale and collard greens as a side dish, or use lettuce to make a refreshing salad.

Overall, eating greens is a simple and tasty way to boost your nutrient intake and improve your health. So next time you're at the Zerbo's Market, be sure to stock up on these nutritious powerhouses!
