Why should you include green leafy vegetables in your daily diet?

Green leafy vegetables are pure health and are the most nutrient-dense food and the healthiest food that exist. ✔️ Greatest source of nitrates, which our body can transform into nitric oxide. ✔️ Eating foods high in nitrates, helps open our blood vessels and allows more blood to flow in our body. ✔️ Without nitrates, your arteries may stiffen and become dysfunctional. This can lead to high blood pressure and risk of heart attack. ✔️ Greens are stocked with the most plant pigments and antioxidants, just wrapped up in one green package. So, when you're eating dark green leafy vegetables, you're eating the rainbow. ✔️ The color green is because it contains chlorophyll.

Until recently we've believed that the only organisms that can utilize energy from the sun and photosynthesize are plants. Animals don't. This is because plants have chlorophyll and animals don't. This is where it becomes interesting.

Animals do have chlorophyll, but only if they eat greens. Being out in the sun, rays of sunlight will penetrate your skin, organs and the entire blood system, and if you're eating greens, a photosynthesis will happen inside your body. What happens next?

This process will actually produce the coenzyme Q10, which is a beneficial antioxidant. We've used to believe the only benefit of sunlight is vitamin D and the only benefit of greens is that it's rich in antioxidants. But together in a combination, researchers now suspect that they'll actually help our body to produce and maintain its own internal storage of antioxidants.

Folic acid and depression
These days I am posting about depression and mental health
One of the key nutrients that are essential for mental health is folic acid
Why ? It acts as a donor in our brain ,it donates a molecule known as methyl group which the brain needs to manufacture neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine ,the feel good neurotransmitters 😎😎
All this scientific talk is just to allow your beautiful brain make the connection between eating leafy greens and feeling great :)
31-35% of depressed patients are deficient in folic acid
And deficiency is even more in elderly patients.
Make sure leafy greens are part of your daily food intake
Folic acid actually got its name from the fact it s found in foliage
حامض الفوليك و الصحة النفسية و الاكتئاب
اكتب في هذه الفترة عن الصحة النفسية
من اهم العناصر الغذائية للصحة النفسية هو حامض الفوليك
لماذا؟ لانه يعمل كمتبرع لمركب كيميائي مهم للدماغ حتى يتمكن من تصنيع ناقلات عصبية مثل السيروتونين و الدوبامين ،ناقلات عصبية ضرورية حتى نشعر بالارتياح و السعادة 😎😎 لماذا اسرد عليكم هذه التفاصيل العلمية ؟ حتى يتمكن دماغكم من عمل رابط بين الصحة النفسية و اكل الخضار الورقية الغنية بهذا العنصر الغذائي:)

Vegetable rice is literally my favourite thing 💚 (with hummus 👌) used @pataksuk balti paste and good soy sauce.

Noodle free #padthai adapted from #minimilistbaker I added some quinoa on the side and some roasted sweet potatoes and beets. This recipe is packed with veg and crazy #nutrientdense The sauce for this seems super versatile! Here's how you make it whisk together 3 tbsp almond butter 3.5 tbsp tamari 3.5 tbsp maple syrup and 3 tbsp lime juice. #glutenfree #glutendairyfree #eggfree #communaltable #veggies #greenleafyvegetables #9cupsofveggiesaday #naturopathicmedicine #foodasmedicine #instagood

Many people don't think they like kale due to its texture and bitterness. When kale is cooked it turns sweet. My favorite way to prepare kale is sautéed in butter in a cast iron skillet. 1. Wash kale. 2. Remove leaves from the stem by sliding your hands along the stalk starting from the base. 3. Chop leaves into bite size pieces. Helps with the texture component. 4. Heat skillet on medium. 5. Add your choice of oil. I use free range butter, avocado oil, olive oil, or coconut oil depending on the desired taste. 6. When the oil is heated add the kale and stir until all the leaves are shiny. 6. If you like it softer, cover and steam, otherwise leave uncovered for a crisper texture. Kale takes about 8-10 minutes to cook. It's ready when the color starts to change hues and it goes from bitter to sweet. Kale will continue to cook so make sure to remove from the skillet promptly or it becomes overcooked and loses it sweetness. .

Sautéed kale with shallots, lots of fresh minced garlic and pink Himalayan salt. Freakin' BOMB. Totally concocted recipe that will now be a mainstay for cooking this vitamin packed green leafy veggie. Also, pink Himalayan salt is delicious--it's robust, smoky, and full of flavor. #veggies #kaleislife #greenleafyvegetables #pinkhimalayansalt #supertastyeats #garlicisthebestsuperfood #sle #lupus #autoimmunediseases

It's what's for dinner! The ketogenic diet works best if vegetables are consumed with your fat and protein. They help you stay in ketosis, provide much needed nutrients and fiber. Consider vegetables housekeepers to your gut wall and food for your gut bacteria. 🥇🏆💜😋😍. #keto #ketodiet #ketogenicdiet #metabolicdisease #diabetes #health #sugar #sugarkills #nosugar #carbsfromveggies #vegetables #greenleafyvegetables #kale #doctor #weightloss #diet #lifestyle #antiaging

When at all possible, eat local. I found a local supplier in dusty West Texas, so chances are, wherever you are, you can too. Farm fresh eggs, carrots, kale, chard, and salad mix for $14! I love when greens are available because you get the most bang for your buck with vitamins and minerals. Eat like Popeye. Your body will thank you. #farmfresh #eatyourveggies #primal

Spinach is an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals:

Vitamin A: Spinach is high in carotenoids, which the body can turn into vitamin A (3).
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that promotes skin health and immune function.
Vitamin K1: Vitamin K is essential for blood clotting, and one spinach leaf contains over half of your daily need.
Folic acid: Also known as folate, or vitamin B9. It is essential for normal cellular function and tissue growth, and is very important for pregnant women.
Iron: Spinach is an excellent source of this essential mineral. Iron helps create hemoglobin, which brings oxygen to the body's tissues.
Calcium: Calcium is essential for bone health. This mineral is also a crucial signalling molecule for the nervous system, heart and muscles.

We want to share with you a 4 part series all about getting back on track after Thanksgiving. You can use this after your Chirstmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa feast as well!

It's a week after Thanksgiving and if you're seriously looking for a way to detox, we are right with you!

Admit it, you ate tons of food, probably drank a little too much wine and had five slices of sweet potato pie during the break..
While your body can get back on track on its own, putting ​nutritious food​ into your​ diet​ a few days after your Thanksgiving meal will help speed up the detox process.​ Here's how! F​ocus​ specifically​ on whole, raw, fresh foods -- especially fruits and vegetables. Foods like raw baby carrots, bell peppers and salads can flush the body with micro​-​nutrients and make a​for a​​ delicious snack. Try​ ​at least one fruit a day and one source of ​leafy greens. Even try a fresh smoothie in the morning instead of coffee, where you can throw it all in.
Our nutritionists are always giving our clients great tips and we wanted to share. #sharingiscaring #eatmoregreens #veggiesaregoodforyou #postthanksgiving #detox🥑🥦🍆🍅

I don't miss visiting Wednesday farmers market in my locality. It's not just buying veggies n fruits, but much more than that! You meet familiar faces in neighborhood, you like the known smile on farmer seller upon seeing his regular buyers. Its a place where veggie rates are of more importance than stock markets :) you like to get advice from senior citizens on how to check freshness of vegetables. Free nimbu-mirchi is the best bargain....
And winter is the best time to buy variety. Shop till you drop literally ;)

Lovely Savoy cabbage, chopped, lightly steamed, drizzled with olive oil and a twist of sea salt and black pepper. (Swipe left). A side dish to grace any dinner. Don’t discard the outer leaves of the cabbage if they’re slightly torn or grubby as they contain the highest levels of phytonutrients. They only need a quick wash before preparing. When shopping for green leafy vegetables always choose the darkest green colour you can find and the most open leaves, as they contain higher concentrations of nutrients, so will help make your dinner more nutrient dense. Savoy cabbages contain at least 35 different antioxidant phytonutrients as well as glucosinolates which have an antibiotic-like effect and help ward off bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. A number of recent studies have also suggested that a diet rich in cruciferous vegetables may lower your risk of certain cancers. So cheap, quick and easy to prepare and with the potential for so many health benefits, it worth adding to your shopping trolley 🛒 .
