My dear friends, as you all know vegetables in general and specially green vegetables are very rich in vitamins such as : A, C, K and folate, they are also rich in minerals such as iron and calcium. And they are the best source of fibres. Researches and studies have found that dark leafy greens can prevent some types of cancers and promote heart health.
So it is a very good habit to incorporate as many leafy greens as possible in our diets.
Here are 2 simple and very tasty recipes for your breakfast and lunch.
Remember: the ripest the bananas the sweeter is going to be your smoothie!
Adding half a lemon juice is going to give you a boost in vitamin C and you won't even taste the lemon in the smoothie.
Mix the 3 ingredients well, I love my hand mixer, I find it very practical to use, to store, and very easy to clean.
I use it several times during the day and it is always on hand on my kitchen counter.
This is my best way to start the day with a portion of leafy greens!
In summer or when the season is mild, I appreciate very much a good large mixed salad, not only it is refreshing, but you can add many different veggies, seeds & nuts to make it more tasty and add nutrients, vitamins, minerals and omega 3 &6 to it.
I have recently started to add algae in my salads, algae are a nutrient-rich and complete food as they contain minerals, vitamins, protein and healthy fats. They are particularly rich in iron and therefore a must have in your diet if you are anaemic or you have low levels of iron in your blood.
Avocados are a great source of vitamins : C, E, K as well as B6, riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium and potassium.
They also contain lutein, beta-carotene and omega3 fatty acids all good fats which will make you feel full and prevent from craving unhealthy foods later on during the day!
