Eat your greens... February 2017
The importance of adding more greens into our diet
Green leafy vegetables play an important role in keeping us healthy and preventing illness. However, only 25% of us eat 3 or more servings of vegetables every day.
Eating our greens has been shown to have many positive health benefits as they are packed full of nutrients, antioxidants, and fibre and are low in calories. Leafy greens are high in Vitamins A, C, E and K as well as calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and potassium. By including more greens into our daily meals we are loading ourselves up with all the goodness that helps strengthen our health.
