One of my guides on how I’m doing with my diet… and by diet I simply mean the food I am putting into my mouth… is to ask myself at the end of the day if I had any greens? And how much did I have? This is something I will ask my patients and clients as well. It is a good indicator as to whether or not my body is getting the nutrition it needs to supply every organ function and system in my body. Sorry, the lettuce on a sandwhich doesn’t count and your iceburg salad does’t count either. When you are looking for the healthy stuff reach for the deep greens, it is like getting a really good deal at the mall. They are skin enhancers, cancer fighters, and immune system builders all for the low price of eating a vegetable! The dark greens, like broccoli, kale, collards, and swiss chard are full of vitamins and minerals so get yours today!
The Whole Foods website has great ideas if you need ideas on what to make
The above is a great recipe for broccoli salad!
