I Challenge YOU to Eat 3 greens daily!!

Week #8 Mini Challenge- Eat 3 servings of greens each day!!

Eating GREENS takes effort and determination.

The way I get 3 in a day is to start my day with a GREEN, focus on eating greens for my “snacks” and having greens with dinner.

Greens are so good for your digestion, your body’s acidic balance, for nutrition, for energy, etc….
My favorite Greens lately are:
Cucumbers,
Peppers,
Green Beans,
Radishes,
Asparagus,
Brussels Sprouts

Others I eat quite often include:
Stir fry veggies,
Spinach,
Romaine Lettuce,
Green and Red Cabbage
and Spaghetti Squash

Get after those greens~

They are SO good for you and REALLY help lean you up!!!
YUMMY!!!

Please share with us some of your favorite GREENS with a comment below!!

Enjoy eating GREEN this week~ Michelle
