5 Reasons to Eat Dark Leafy Greens Daily

Range of healthy green vegetable on a white table

  1. Dark leafy greens are the healthiest foods on the planet. They provide more nutrients per unit calorie than any other food – including 19 different vitamins and minerals and countless disease-fighting phytochemicals all for just 36 calories per cup cooked.
  2. They provide protection from heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
  3. They help prevent age-related vision loss.
  4. They provide built-in “SPF” for your skin (which means less skin cancer and less wrinkles).
  5. They keep your mind sharp and lower the risk of dementia.

Eat them raw (lettuce greens in salads) or cooked – kale, collards, spinach, Swiss chard, turnip greens, mustard greens, beet greens, etc. – just eat them!
