1) “GO GREEN” NUTRITION CHALLENGE | @monica_parodi

Monica ParodiSo 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.


There is no drug, no surgery and no supplement that can get your digestive system on track as easily and effectively as dark green leafy vegetables.  Here are some more benefits of adding greens to your diet:

  • Boosts Energy
  • Helps Control Hunger
  • Adds lots of fiber, a nutrient needed for weight loss
  • Keeps you full longer
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Lowers risk of heart disease
  • Reduces bloating and digestive problems

ANY increase in greens in your daily nutrition is going to bring big benefits for you, so this is a really simple challenge.  No matter what you plan on eating today, just add more greens than you would normally consume.

This can be as simple as a side salad, some cucumber slices, some celery and nut butter, broccoli with hummus, steamed asparagus, sautéed spinach or even a green smoothie.  If none of those work, then sneak some spinach into your marinara sauce.
