7 Green Vegetables to Eat Right Now


Image: Maya83

Foods of every color are abundant in nutrients with specific benefits to health, but calorie-for-calorie, green foods, whether leafy greens, green vegetables or fruit, seaweeds, and even the popular ‘green’ supplements, are nutritional powerhouses. Rich in minerals, namely magnesium, potassium, and iron, greens also provide B vitamins, folate in particular, as well as vitamins K, C, and E. A cup of most greens provides several times the minimum recommendation for vitamin K, a vitamin needed for the production of osteocalcin, a protein essential for bone health.

Greens come packaged with layers of fiber. As a result, they’re extremely low in calories and carbohydrate, and have minimal impact on blood glucose. Packed with nutrients and low in calories – that sounds like the perfect food.
