How Is Your Intake of Green?

By Tom Herrin

It is pretty well established that in order to have a good and balanced diet, people need to have lots of colors in it.  Even though this is the case, many have a difficult time with some of the colors.  This is likely due to the fact that they may not have been introduced to some of them when they were young, or they did not have a broad enough experience with a variety of them.  Leafy greens can be a great food to include in a diet, but many people simply don't think about it often enough.  With a little planning, they may be added to a diet with some really good results.

Eating Leafy Greens May Protect Weak Eyes

This may seem like a somewhat strange perk, but apparently including leafy greens can help to keep up the health of weak eyes.  They will not repair them, but the potassium in the greens can impact the tissues in the eyes.  It may slow down some of those processes that can ultimately do damage to the eyes that result in dry eyes, night blindness, and cataracts.

Some Leafy Greens May Help to Maintain the Skin

Most people want their skin to look youthful, even if they don't want to admit it.  Skincare products make up a considerably large market, and people spend lots of money seeking ways to make theirs look great.  Not only do these veggies contain plenty of nutrients, but many have a high water content.  This can help to keep moisture in the skin.  That means fewer wrinkles and better elasticity.  Adding something to a diet may be simpler and less expensive than purchasing loads of supplies in the store.

What's in a Salad?

I enjoy having salads as a meal.  They are easy to prepare and can be put together pretty fast.  We like to include leafy greens in ours.  This gives us some pretty good nutrients yet a light meal.  After eating this, I feel I can go out and be active without feeling loaded down with heavy foods.  They are filling enough that I don't feel hungry after eating a salad.  They also seem to be a pretty good food to eat when I am starting a weight loss program, and I do a check and balance on that regularly.  Give them a try, and see what they can do for you.
