15 Recipes to Sneak More Greens Into Your Diet
Make your plate more colorful (well, at least greener) with these recipes made with nutritious leafy greens.
Why are leafy greens healthy? It’s easy: They pack a nutritional punch—providing vitamins, minerals, and fiber without a lot of calories. Adding greens like kale, spinach, and arugula to your diet can help you reap healthy benefits such as reducing the risk of obesity, heart disease, and high blood pressure.
There are many ways to add more greens to your diet, but what’s the best trick? Hiding them! Add them to soup, make a smoothie with spinach (you won’t even taste it, we promise), or make a stir fry loaded with veggies. You’ll get many cancer-fighting antioxidants and immune-boosting vitamins without even noticing.
