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!
I find a salad bowl to be like an empty canvas, just awaiting my creative touch. 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 palate. I urge you to come out of your salad rut and experiment with some of these fresh ideas!
