Among the central elements of any healthy diet is consuming a sufficient amount of greens. Yet 95% of people who follow a health diet plan, do not take in adequate green leafy vegetables.
I’ll admit, I typically have difficulty (or sometimes even do not have the desire) to eat my greens. I know I require to consume more greens however I simply don’t do it.
Then I discovered an enjoyable way to obtain more greens into my diet plan. Here are my Top-3 Ways to obtain more greens into your diet plan.
1. Make Green Smoothies
Green shakes are terrific and my favorite way to consume a big amount of greens! When I initially became aware of green shakes I was a little doubtful about mixing fruit and greens and was surprised by the result.
Here are some recipes from my ebook Smoothies for Optimal Health.
Berry Roman Smoothie
1 cup strawberries
2 entire bananas
1/2 bunch romain
1/2 to 1 cup water
Mix fruit and water. Add romaine lettuce. Delight in.
Being Green Smoothie
2 cups fresh spinach
1 entire grated cucumber or carrot

1 whole orange
3 entire apples, juiced

2. Make Blended Salads
You can graduate to making mixed salads once you’ve gotten used to the taste of greens in your smoothies. You can shift slowly by decreasing the amount of fruit in your shake and increasing the amount of greens. Gaspacho is a kind of blended salad. Here is among my favorite dishes (though I will confess took me a while to obtain used to the taste and texture of blended salads).
2 medium tomatoes, approximately sliced
2 ribs of celery
4 leaves lettuce (big).
1 huge handful spinach.
1 green onion.
1/4 cup parsley.
2 Tbs. dulse flakes.
1 Tbs. nori flakes (optional).
Water if needed.
Blend the tomatoes together, and include the rest of the components gradually. If you require to, use water only. A mixed salad needs to be rather thick.
3. Discover One Good Healthy Salad Dressing.
An amusing thing took place once I began consuming more greens in my diet. I started to dislike a few of my favorite “healthy” dressings. My tastebuds lurched at the taste of olive oil. So I put together a collection of healthy salad dressings in my ebook “The Top 70 Healthy Salad Dressings You Can Make in Less Than 2 Minutes”.
Here’s a dish to get you started.
2 cucumbers or tomatoes.
2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
1 cup fresh dill.
1 small avocado.
Mix up until shake. Use more water if needed.
We understand greens are great for us and we must all aim to get more greens in our diet plan but do not require yourself to eat more greens if you don’t like them! Instead, let your innate appetite for greens come back naturally, by gradually integrating more greens in your diet in the type of green smoothies, blended salads, etc.
