1) “GO GREEN” NUTRITION CHALLENGE | @monica_parodi
So FitFamily what do I have for you today? Let’s Go GREEN!
Nutrient Dense Food! What does that mean? It means the food is packed with tons of nutrients, vitamins, minerals and everything we need to thrive but does NOT have a lot of calories. Greens are nutrient dense, low-fat and LOW-CALORIE. A cup of spinach is 7 calories and a cup of kale is 33 calories. I promise you won’t gain weight eating greens.
*Remember: Your “Go Green” Nutrition Challenge requires that today you eat Green Veggies with a minimum of 3 meals or snacks.
Please don’t skip this part of the challenge. YOU CAN DO IT! Think of the benefits, keep trying new greens and your tastes will change. Here are some green recipes to try tonight or in the future. Let’s Go Green, Baby!
Now it’s time to sweat and for you to #ShutUpAndTrain!!
