Everyday Well-Being

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.

Fun fact

Kale, touted by many as one of the healthiest vegetables, ranges in color from cream to purple to black.
