Who Says It's Not Easy Eating Green?
Don't forget those basic green vegetables that are every bit as good for you, such as asparagus, leeks, beans, peas, broccoli, green peppers, cucumbers, celery, cabbage and Brussels sprouts. The trick is to find ways to incorporate these veggie goldmines into your every day meals. Load up sandwiches and salads with plenty of garden-variety vegetables. Add fresh spinach leaves to complement your ham and cheese sandwich or top your salad with broccoli, celery and other popular greens. For a quick and healthy stir-fry, toss a diced onion in a little olive oil with a sprinkling of Chinese Five spice. Then add shredded cabbage or bok choy and stir-fry for about three minutes. Top with a few drops of low-sodium soy sauce.
