Green veggies – why? By Brenda Jaeck
read about them, hear about them. But
WHY are green vegetables so good for us?
Green leafy vegetables provide so many important aspects of good
nutrition – vitamins, minerals, fiber.
They are also very cleansing.
Nutritionally, greens are very
high in calcium, 120 -190 mg per cup. They're also high in magnesium, iron,
potassium, phosphorous, zinc, and a power house for Vitamin A, C, E and K.
They are also crammed high with folic acid, chlorophyll and many other
micro-nutrients and phyto-chemicals.
They are fiber rich –
assisting in good digestive health.
Additional benefits from eating dark leafy greens are:
blood purifier, cancer prevention, immune strengthener, promotes healthy
intestinal flora, improves liver, gall bladder and kidney function, lifts the
spirit, fights depression, clears congestion, especially in lungs, reduces
mucus, improves circulation.
What “qualifies” as a green leafy vegetable?
Broccoli, bok choy,
nappa, Chinese cabbage, green cabbage, kale (my personal
current favorite), collards, watercress, mustard greens, broccoli rabe, arugula, spinach*, Swiss
chard*, beet greens*, endive and chicory, lettuce, mesculun,
wild greens and dandelion.
* these are best eaten in
moderation. They contain oxalic acid which depletes calcium from your bones
and teeth leading to osteoporosis or kidney stones. Eat them with something
rich like tofu, seeds, nuts, beans and oil to balance the effect.
How do I eat them?? Raw, cooked
– steamed sautéed, stir-fried, roasted – anyway you want –
just eat them! See recipe in this

entire lifestyle to achieve maximum health. This is accomplished
through education and private consultations where an individualized program

current diet and overall lifestyle and then making easily implemented,
gradual changes. Additionally, you’ll receive outside information
