Health benefits are amazing for those who go green! If you don’t typically have a salad for lunch or with dinner, now is the time to turn over a new leaf! Eating just one serving of dark green, leafy veggies a day lowers your odds of developing type 2 diabetes by 14%, says a new British study. Foods such as romaine lettuce and spinach reduce risk because they contain high amounts of antioxidants, like polyphenols and vitamin C. Try sneaking romaine lettuce into a sandwich or add diced spinach to pasta or an omelet. The spinach salad below is topped with pistachios and raisins, but a handful of trail mix is delicious too.
