Go Greens

My tip for today is:

“Go Greens”

Yes, go greens!

Enjoy the benefits of eating more dark, leafy green vegetables in your diet.

As you know, I’m a big fan of green smoothies.

But that’s not the only way to eat greens.

You can:

Juice ’em!
Blend ’em!
Steam ’em!
Chew ’em!

Whatever you do… try to get 1 to 2 pounds of dark leafy green in your diet every day.

Here are some of the benefits you will experience:

– Improved energy
– Stronger bones (because of the mineral profile of greens)
– Reduced risks of deficiencies
– Look younger
– Improved digestion

In fact… this is just the beginning! Some people report a complete health transformation with that change alone!

Here are some of the best greens to consume:

– Kale: full of calcium, easy to use, many varieties
– Celery: full of natural sodium, an important green to use
– Romaine lettuce: full of minerals, easy to digest
– Spinach: great taste, full of minerals and calcium

And that’s just the beginning… each green has its own particular nutritional profile and benefits. So try new ones, like: Italian broccoli, beet greens, mustard greens, collards, and more!

Although I like to blend a lot of greens in the form of green smoothies, I also enjoy some vegetable juice. Here’s a good mix:

1-2 carrots
half small beet
3-4 celery ribs
several leaves of kale
Spinach
Fresh lemon juice

Juice all ingredients except the lemon… add the former at the end and enjoy!
