Spinach – Keeps Your Skin Glowing
Did you know that Popeye’s favorite vegetable is good for your skin? Well, it is. The vitamin A in spinach has shown to protect your skin from UV damage and ensures a healthy cell turnover. Both these aspects will keep your skin glowing!
Some of the ways you can enjoy spinach is – adding it to salads, sandwiches, soups or do what my mom does best – make spinach curry - YUM
Pears – Helps kick your hunger
Research has shown that eating three small pears a day helps you control hunger. Pears contain a lot of water and fiber, both of which will keep you feeling full for a longer period of time. Also, fiber guards against drastic blood sugar spikes which can lead to over eating
Best way to enjoy pears is – eat them raw, bake them or grill them and serve them with a bit of vanilla ice cream for a sweet treat.
Avocado – helps lift your mood
When feeling frazzled, try eating an avocado rather than reaching for a high calorie candy bar. Avocados are packed with monosaturated fat which provides a much needed pick me up.According to Susan Kleiner, PhD, RD, the author of the Good Mood Diet, the building blocks of brain cells are predominantly fat. So, when you don’t eat enough, you can get grouchy, crabby and depressed.
The best way to eat avocado according to me is making Guacamole. You can also have it straight up, drizzled with lime juice and grilled with olive oil.
So, there. Now that you know the benefits of Green foods, I hope that you add them to your diet.
