As I’ve read somewhere “there is a good reason as to why mothers go crazy running after their kids to eat the green veggies”.
It is later in our lives that we actually get hold of the true essence of the health benefits that these vegetables provide. Sadly, for many of us, the damage is done by then. But, it is better delayed than never taken up.
Hopefully the following will motivate you to include brightly coloured veggies in your meals;
1. Helps maintain weight: Most of the green vegetables are low in fat and carbohydrates. When forming or planning your diet chart, be sure to add a green vegetable daily to it. Instead of opting for the packet food or the processed food, go for the raw and fresh green veggies. It would help you observe your diet and that too in a non-extravagant way.
2. Strengthen the bones: Green vegetables are an excellent source of Vitamin K. This implies that consuming these you would be adding to the strength of your bones and teeth. Vitamin K produces osteocalcin which is important for maintaining one’s bone health.
3. Help you look younger: It is often said that more the colour on one’s plate, more would be the health benefits. Picking up on the green leafy vegetables can do wonders when it comes to concealing your age. It is time for you to ditch all the surface methods that you apply to lessen the look of your advancing age.
All the best
