Did you know that eating your greens is one of the best things you can do for your body, so that you can have a life a Healthy, Happiness and Vitality

Great news for the budget it is inexpensive and one of the fastest ways that will not only help you to recover quicker from ill health but will also recharge your body with their great antioxidant properties not to mention essential nutrients.

So what do I mean by green vegetables these are: spinach, kale, broccoli, cabbage, da...rk green lettuce, parsley, endive, rocket - just to name a few. These wonderful green vegetables can be lightly steamed or added raw to salads and smoothies.

Let's look at what they will do for YOU and Your Family -

Healthy heart
Science recently discovered that many green veggies contain nitrate. This thins the blood, distributes oxygen around the body, and prevents cardiovascular problems like heart attack and stroke. And many greens like kale also lower cholesterol levels.

Chlorophyll is also found in green vegetables, which boosts red blood vessel production, increases the use of oxygen by the body, and gives you a healthy burst of energy. It’s also a super cancer-fighting plant pigment, keeping the blood as clean as a whistle and removing toxins.

Prevent diabetes
Another neat nitrate trick is that it makes blood vessels larger, so white blood cells can easily change into cells that burn more fat. This is crucial for warding off diabetes and obesity.

Live longer
Eating more greens can also add around two years to your life, according to a study published in the Annals of Epidemiology journal. The difference is staggering – compared to people who eat 20 grams of green vegetables a day, people who eat 60 grams a day live far longer But I think much better than this we will have a better quality of life. Especially if we ditch all the things that are bad for us.

An Easy Solution to Vitamins and Nutrients

In a salad, stirred through a stir-fry or pasta, or thrown into a blender – veggies are versatile, inexpensive, and super easy to ingest. There really is no better way to add essential vitamins and minerals to your daily diet. So skip the takeaway tonight and chow down on the green stuff instead. And if you’re trying to lose weight or be healthier, have a serve of green veggies before every meal; you’ll feel fuller and will be less likely to fill up on less nutritionally dense foods
