Hands up if your whole life you’ve been hearing “eat your greens”? Turns out there was a good reason and not just a torture device used by parents. Greens are packed with nutrition in the form of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They also help keep you feeling full and satisfied. And when it comes to which are the best, what it basically comes down to is, the darker green, the more nutrients it contains.
But how much should we be consuming every day? The general rule of thumb is 2.5 cups, or if you’re active, more is always better. The good news is “getting your greens” doesn’t mean bowl after bowl of broccoli (though if that’s your thing, you do you!). It can be as simple as adding something green to every meal. A spinach omelette for breakfast, a leafy salad for lunch, and Swiss chard or asparagus with dinner. A green smoothie or green beverage any time of day is definitely a tasty and convenient option.
