Add a dark green vegetable to a meal today, such as spinach leaves in a sandwich or salad.
How to do it
Add a dark green vegetable to one of your meals today. Choose from kale, collard greens, spinach, broccoli, Swiss chard, or any dark green vegetable you enjoy. Instead of iceberg or romaine lettuce, try baby spinach leaves in your salad or sandwich. Ask for broccoli on your pizza or as a side dish.
Why it matters
When it comes to veggies, the darker the better! Dark green vegetables are powerhouses of nutrition, bursting with nutrients such as vitamins A, C, E, and calcium. They are also a great source of antioxidants, which protect against disease.
Kale, touted by many as one of the healthiest vegetables, ranges in color from cream to purple to black.
Took me a while, as I had to get to the store. I had a Greek pasta salad with spinach for lunch, and then for dinner a salad with chicken. Delicious!
I will have to get some! :)
Done. (at lunch today)
brussel sprouts. Could eat them every day
Made kale, pan-fried with a little olive oil, fresh garlic and toasted walnuts, along with oven-fried chicken & mashed potatoes for a really nice at-home meal with a really good friend. Lovely!
I had asparagus with my lunch and green peppers with dinner!
Do kale chips count? I made them myself.
Had steamed broccoli with dinner.
I found pizza in NY w/ broccoli. Yum!
