You can’t have too many greens. Leafy green veggies, such as spinach, kale, Swiss chard, collard greens, and lettuce, are loaded with nutrients. The darker the greens, the more nutrients they contain. Most leafy greens, however, are rich in fiber, calcium, iron, B vitamins, vitamin A, and vitamin K. You can enjoy greens sautéed or salads, but that’s not all. There are tons of delicious ways to get the greens your body needs to keep you healthy and happy. Here are 5 Fun Ways to Eat More Greens.
1. Sip on a smoothie
Smoothies are a fast and easy breakfast or snack, and they’re a great way to sneak more greens into your diet. Try our Kale & Orange Smoothie or our Spinach and Mango Smoothie.
2. Bake muffins
Muffins don’t have to be sweet. Our Spinach and Feta Savory Muffins and our Sweet Corn and Kale Muffins are savory versions of the classic breakfast treat.
3. Munch on veggie chips
Kale chips are crunchy, flavorful, and packed with good-for-you vitamins and minerals. Try our 3-Ingredient Parmesan Kale Chips for a healthy snack.
4. Use lettuce instead of tortillas
You can use lettuce to make wraps and as a bowl for salads. It’s gluten-free, low-calorie, and light. Take Chicken Caesar Lettuce Cups or Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps to work for a tasty lunch.
5. Make a green soup
Soups are wonderful because you can make them with anything. We love adding greens to our soups, such as in our One Pot “Stuffed Cabbage Stew” or our Slow Cooker Kale and Sausage Soup.
