We love granola like most folks, but we’re sorry to break it to you: most of the granola you’ll find in stores is kinda crappy from a health perspective! We know, you thought granola was a health food, right?
We all know that we should be eating more dark, leafy greens. The top reasons include:
- They’re a dense source of nutrients, especially vitamin A, C, K, magnesium, copper, potassium, iron, & antioxidants
- They contain plant compounds that are very detoxifying
- Fiber, fiber, fiber ; )
I don’t know about you, but when it starts getting cold outside, warm and nourishing soup immediately comes to mind. I not only love the fact that you can pack a lot of nutrition into a compact, one pot to wash meal, but you can clean out your produce bin in the process!
When folks think of “healthy food” salads often come to mind. Not only does a salad provide you the opportunity to get a lot of vegetables in at once, but the array of colors can be just as pleasing to the eye as the flavors are pleasing to the taste buds. And no, salads don’t have to be boring or unsatisfying! Come out of your salad rut and experiment with some of these fresh, REAL FOOD ideas!
