Today is #TotalFit Challenge Day 17. By now you should understand the importance of proper nutrition to your results and a healthy lifestyle.
So again, here is your “Go Green” Nutrition challenge (eat Green Veggies with a minimum of 3 meals or snacks). For your fitness challenge you have your “Test Me Tuesday” workout and “Late Night Abs” routine.
It’s time to “Go Green” and tackle today’s workouts!
1) “GO GREEN” NUTRITION CHALLENGE
You guys know by now that Tuesdays are all about the Greens! Today’s nutrition challenge is to have something green with every meal or snack. Add spinach to your omelet, have a salad for a snack, broccoli with hummus or try a green smoothie!
|BENEFITS OF GREENS|
|1. Greens are high in fiber and quite low in calories and carbohydrates, which makes them great for the digestive tract and for weight loss and maintenance.|
|2. Greens are anti-inflammatory.|
|3. Greens regulate blood sugar.|
|4. Greens like kale, collard greens and spinach are a great source for calcium. The calcium is also highly absorbable, unlike that in other foods.|
|5. Greens help control blood pressure.|
|6. Greens are a rich source of minerals, including potassium, magnesium, and iron.|
|7. Greens provide sustainable energy.|
|8. Greens control hunger and cravings.|
