happy eating~

While you might have been forced to eat your dark green veggies as a
kid, now you know why it was so important. Even today, your dark
greens are vital to your health and well-being. Try these dark greens
in some new recipes; you just might surprise yourself and actually
enjoy it!

Broccoli is a fun vegetable for kids because it feels like you're eating
a small tree. In fact, the little buds are actually tiny flourettes that
contain more than twice the amount of Vitamin C of an orange.

Kale is a slightly bitter, leafy green with a huge amount of folic acid and
potassium. Try some kale in your stir-fry. You may just find yourself
thoroughly impressed.

Romaine lettuce, while still made up mostly of water, is packed with
antioxidants and fiber.

The darker green the leaf, the more folic acid is present, which
prevents heart disease.

Swiss chard is similar to spinach, with a little more of an earthy
undertone. Rich in Vitamins C and K, as well as calcium, Swiss
chard is a great addition to salads.

Spinach is a lean mean green antioxidant-packing machine, rich in
flavor and in Vitamins A and C, and iron.
