GREENS ARE A LIFE FORCE

Every life cycle begins with plant life. Plants have the unique ability to use the energy from the sun to create nutrition and life force. It therefore follows, that including green plants in your diet would be a good choice for providing a more direct source of vital nutrients.

As a young person, I used to tell myself silly things like. Only goats eat leaves. At that time, I had no understanding of the real benefits of food, and how important nutrients are to the daily functioning of our organs, hormones and the prevention of diseases and ailments.

There was a time when the greenest thing I ate was avocado. Cucumber salad was a regular part of our diet, but we peeled the skin off.

Other vitamins are fat soluble and can therefore be stored in fat and the liver, and released when needed.   These include vitamin A, D, E, K.  Some minerals that are plentiful in dark leafy greens include calcium, potassium, copper manganese and iron.
