Add Green to Your Diet

Home Care Assistance is educating adults on the benefit of a proper diet and incorporating the color green into your next meal!

PRLog - March 21, 2011 - Incorporating the color green into your next meal will not save you a pinch, but your body will thank you in many ways if you consider eating even one of the following healthiest greens in the market!

Broccoli tops the vegetable list with the highest amount of fiber, potassium, vitamin C and calcium. Additional nutrients include folate (fights against cancer and anemia) and indoles, nitrogen compounds that may help prevent stomach tumors.

Don't care for broccoli? Check out these next best foods:

Spinach: Popeye's favorite! This side dish aides in bone health and blood-clotting during healing. Spinach is also rich in iron. Some studies have highlighted spinach as an agent in decreasing internal inflammation.
Artichoke: High in magnesium and folate, artichokes are great promoters of muscle function.

Asparagus: Like it's green counterparts, asparagus helps fight against cardiovascular disease, but additionally may relieve bloating by removing excess water in the body.

Celery: Certainly a more popular veggie, celery has a sweeter taste and mixes well with spreads. Grab a few sticks with peanut butter or light ranch dressing and you'll receive a portion of your daily fiber, Vitamin A and folate.
