Super Healthy Green Food

Greens are amongst the healthiest vegetables available in your local market. Dense with plant healers called phytonutrients, greens have the ability to detoxify your body, balance your internal pH, and help combat illness and disease. Kale, spinach and collard greens are a few of the heartiest, most be beneficial greens to ingest.
The best way to benefit from and retain the nutrients in greens is to consume them raw. This will insure that the plant’s healing powers have not been compromised or denatured by heat. Heating them will strip the greens of the majority of their nutrient content, making them less accessible for absorption by your body.
Add a few leaves of each kale, spinach and collard greens to a blender full of water. Blend until the mixture is a smooth consistency.
