Green veggies – most of us were not fans of them as kids, but as adults, we know how important it is to eat them daily. We know they’re good for us, but it’s tough to keep track of why and which ones are the best. So we pulled 10 different items out of the crisper—all of which are on our Fresh and Free Additions list—to look at why each should make it onto our plates regularly.
Many green vegetables are low in calories and have similar nutritional profiles, but there are some differences, depending on your goals. Fiber is important since it can aid in weight loss by helping you feel full and keeping your digestive system regular. One of these veggies is best for curbing your appetite. Others will help keep you hydrated. Choose what sounds good to you and get creative when combining different flavors and benefits!
