The Superpowers of Healthy Greens

Healthy greens including asparagus, cucumber and green pepper.
Healthy greens are a great way to add a burst of nutrition to your daily eating habits. There is an array of health benefits if you are eating them regularly. Plus, there are so many types of healthy greens that it’s easy to add a quick and delicious side dish to any meal. Or, you can make a full meal using healthy greens as the primary ingredient.

Immune System

Healthy greens offer a bunch of vitamins and minerals, which help boost your immune system. Vitamins A, C, and E are found in most healthy greens and add extra nutrition to any snack or meal. The antioxidants found in healthy greens are a great way to maintain and protect your health. Phytonutrients are unique to healthy greens and offer an extra bit of healing of power to fight off illness and protect your immune system.

Weight Control

Because most healthy greens are low in calories, you can eat a lot of them without worrying about excessive weight gain. Most healthy greens have a high amount of fiber in them, which will keep you full and satisfied. Using healthy greens for a large portion of your meal also decreases glucose intake. Fresh, healthy greens don’t contain the sugar that is in processed foods, so it does not raise your blood glucose level or include excess sugar that can turn into fat. Plus, healthy greens contain water so they can help keep you hydrated all day long.

Improved Moods

Healthy greens have so many healing and preventative properties that they can help improve mood swings. They also promote lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Plus, the fiber in healthy greens helps control sugar-induced mood swings by slowing down the absorption of carbohydrates into your bloodstream after you’re done eating.

Some of my favorite ways to eat healthy greens are in a tasty spinach salad, with a side of roasted, spiced broccoli, or munching on fresh green peppers as a snack. But there are SO many options. I can easily switch up the type of healthy greens I’m eating, or the way I prepare them. Time to get creative!
