A Healthier You Day 2

Saturdays are for Vegetables!

Eat Vegetables

Deliberately prepare and eat leafy green veggies today – even if you’ve eaten any during the week.

Why Should You Eat More Vegetables?

Vegetables, especially the leafy green ones, have health benefits you wouldn’t want to ever miss.

  • They contain vitamins A (for eyesight), C, E, and K (which prevent osteoporosis and inflammation). Osteoporosis is a health condition that makes your bone porous and easily fractured.
  • They detoxify your body system.
  • They are a rich supply of folate, a B vitamin that keeps your heart healthy and prevents birth defects in unborn babies.
  • They contain antioxidants that safeguard your body from cancer-causing free radicals.
  • They are packed with dietary fiber, which you need for smooth digestion.

How to Eat More Vegetables

  1. Chop up two or more varieties of vegetables into salads, and enjoy with a salad dressing of your choice (Mayonnaise, guacamole, salad cream, etc.).
  2. Add leafy green vegetables to your soups.
  3. Steam leafy vegetables and add them to your meals.
  4. Season and stir-fry them as a replacement for stew and sauce.
  5. Add them to smoothies. Yeah, it may be gross, but your body would smack it’s lips!
  6. Use them as wraps for sharwama, rolls, and sandwiches.
