35 Delicious Ways to Eat More Greens

35 Delicious Ways to Eat More Greens

Leafy greens are undeniably one of the healthiest foods on the planet. They are extremely nutrient-dense, with a significant concentration of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Leafy greens are also highly alkaline and packed with heart-healthy and bowel-friendly fiber.

We all know we should eat more of them, but for many of us, all that buying, storing, washing, chopping, chewing and digesting just seems like too much. And if you’re trying to get all your greens in salads, you may quickly tire of cold leafy vegetables.

Fortunately there are TONS of ways to incorporate more greens in your diet…even if you’re not a fan of salads. Try cooking them in a scramble, pie, or pesto; incorporating them in a soup or creamy dip; roasting them to crispy perfection; or blending them in a juice, milkshake or refreshing green smoothie! The salads will be there when you’re ready.
