My parents always said, “the more colors you have on your plate, the better.” They were referring to the veggies that I should have on my plate at each meal. The indication that it was good for you came from the deep and vibrant colors. It was important to have the ‘rainbow’ on your plate in order to get a well-balanced meal full of nutrients and minerals. This of course meant you had to have GREEN on the plate. Greens such as Kale, collard greens and arugula all boast nutrient dense and vitamin-rich benefits and are so versatile when it comes to incorporating them into meals. Whether you want to make an arugula salad, sauté kale or put mustard greens in a soup – it all tastes great and it’s all super simple to do. So the next time you look down at your plate and don’t see the color green, you better turn around and head back to the kitchen!
