We all know the term “going green” in terms of saving our environment. What about the environment inside your body? If you don’t save that, you won’t be around to enjoy the rest. When it comes to your diet, Think Green, too!
Green is good. Organic green foods are filled with nutrients that improve not only overall health but the health of your heart and immune system. Green foods also lower cholesterol, improve brain health, and improve emotional and mental health. Better health and improved mood? We all could use that!
There is an abundance of green all around you. Whenever you can, eat green super foods raw and organic. The majority of nutrients are unlocked that way. Even if some vegetables don’t taste good to you, you may enjoy them in a juice mixed with other organic vegetables you do like.
Here is a few of the Organic Greens you should eat:
Spinach – Enjoy cooked or eat the leaves raw in a green salad. Spinach is full of potassium, vitamin C, E, and A, as well as antioxidants such as beta-carotene. Folate, the substance that promotes neural growth in unborn babies, is found in spinach as well as other greens.
Green Tea – This drink is an Eastern delight that has found its way to the West. Green tea contains the antioxidant EGCG that helps lower cancer risk and contains antiviral and antibiotic properties. Drink several cups each day and notice a difference in your skin almost immediately.
Wheatgrass – This is best understood as wheat before it becomes grain. Wheatgrass in juice form is touted as a body cleanser which also increases immunity. Very high in protein like other greens, but wheatgrass is off the charts high in Vitamin E, believed to be one of your heart’s best friend.
As you Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, don’t forget to Go Green inside, too. What you consume internally is just as important as what you consume externally. Treat your body to a delicious Organic Green Superfood today!
