When you’re green inside, you’re clean inside
Vegetables are the ‘jewels in the crown’, packed with vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that are good for us. They really are like jewels in all their glorious colours – emerald leafy greens and brassicas and dark amber and ruby root veggies.
Leafy greens like herbs, lettuce, spinach, kale and Chinese broccoli are packed with natural folates that help methylation, cancer prevention and mental health.
Brassicas (cabbages, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli) contain a lot of phytochemicals to help metabolise oestrogen.
Flexible, versatile, and varied, vegetables can be cooked up into amazing dishes, quickly and easily. And many of them are delicious raw, on the side, as a snack, in juices or in salads.
Ideally you should aim to eat 5 -7 servings of vegetables a day and there’s so many to choose from!
