The Power of Leafy Greens, Written by: Kayte Corrigan

A lot of people complain, “It’s so hard to get my greens in.” And sometimes your kids won’t even touch the stuff. It’s not easy being green. Yet we still go on feeling irritable, with trouble sleeping, joint pain and congestion.

Making leafy greens a staple in your clean diet might have more power than you think. Take Popeye for example, clearly spinach equals super human powers. I don’t even feel like that after 2 cups of coffee. Leafy greens are a collection of the most nutrient dense foods you can find.

You want the list? Okay… magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, and vitamins A, B, C, E and K. High in fiber, folic acid, and chlorophyll. Would you like blood purification, clear congestion, improved circulation and organ function, eliminate depression and prevent cancer? Want flush waste out and repair your muscles faster after a workout? Throw some spinach in your smoothie and over flow your lunch time salad with kale. Start considering greens as a main even instead of a side garnish.

I’ll even give you a list to choose from:

Collards, Kale, Spinach, Chard, Leaf Mustard, Broccoli Raab, Dandelion Greens, Watercress, Bok Choy, Chicory, Seaweed, Cereal Grass.

Gasp! You’ll have that sudden realization that you DO feel better when you eat leafy greens. And the childhood thought that it was a HUGE conspiracy to keep you locked at the dinner table goes out the window.
