Eating a diet rich in green, leafy vegetables, such as watercress and spinach, may help lower your risk of developing chronic diseases. These foods are among the highest-ranking items on a new list of “powerhouse” vegetables and fruits in a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Just about every healthy diet calls for plenty of “leafy greens,” which, as the name suggests, are simply plants whose leaves are edible. Among the nutrients packed into all that emerald goodness are vitamin C and other antioxidants—the substances that fight off cell-damaging “free radical” molecules in the body.
When it comes to cholesterol-lowering food, you can’t go wrong with cruciferous vegetables of the Brassica family. From kale and cabbage to broccoli and cauliflower, these veggies deserve a starring role on your plate.
These light, crispy, melt-in-your mouth chips are a delicious and healthy alternative to potato chips. To turn fresh kale leaves into tasty, good-for-you snacks, all you need is 1 bunch of organic kale, olive oil in a spritzer, and ½ teaspoon Himalayan sea salt (or kosher salt).
