Green Veggies Improve Immune Defenses
We all need an incentive to eat more vegetables. Green vegetables, like broccoli and bok choy, provide health benefits, and people who eat more fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet are less likely to develop chronic diseases. USDA's MyPlate recommends that half of your plate be filled with fruits and vegetables, so why not eat more green vegetables to keep yourself healthy.
Try some of these green vegetables:
- Bok choy
- Swiss chard
For more information on how to eat more vegetables, consult a registered dietitian in your area and check out Eat Right Nutrition Tips.
