Spinach, Kale, Collard Greens, Swiss Chard – take your pick! They all offer tons of nutritional value to your diet.

Lets start with SPINACH ..
This superfood is fab! Extremely low in calories but packed to the max with vitamins. One cup of this nutrient-dense food contains more than your daily requirements of Vitamin K and more than half for Vitamin A. It contains quite a bit of Vitamin C, Folate, and Manganese as well. It’s also a good source of dietary fiber, iron, and potassium. Amazingly enough, it is very rich in health-promoting phytonutrients such as carotenoids and flavonoids that help protect you through the power of antioxidants. Therefore, these two phytonutrients make spinach an anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and antioxidant rich plant. So go on and add it to your daily diet – your body will thank you. 🙂

How can I include this in my diet?
EASY! All you have to do is go to your local grocery store and buy a fresh or frozen package of it.
