5 warning signs you are not eating enough greens

February 25, 2018

There are a lot of ways that our bodies tell us that they need more nutrients. When we’re not getting enough greens, there are five big red flags that our bodies send. They are:

 

1. You Feel Exhausted All the Time

If you're constantly tired, it’s a big sign that you may need more iron. When this gets really bad it’s called anemia. When you are anemic your red blood cell count is low.

Not only do greens give you tons of iron, but they're also high in magnesium, which provides energy. Green leaves also have a lot of chlorophyll. That makes them highly alkaline, and that helps prevent adrenal fatigue.

 

2. You Feel Stressed All the Time

We all have things that can set us off, but if you feel like you just can’t escape your high anxiety, it may be a sign of being low in magnesium and B vitamins.

Greens have both, as well as calcium. Calcium helps keep your blood pressure under control.

 

3. Your Blood Sugar Levels are Elevated

Want to lower your blood sugar levels and prevent insulin surges? Eat more greens!

Their amino acids and magnesium help regulate both. Magnesium also helps break down carbohydrates.

 

4. You're Always Constipated

If you have been irregular and find that your digestive system has slowed down, it’s a sure sign that you aren’t getting enough fiber.

Leafy greens provide the bulk you need to get things moving. Plus, the chlorophyll that gives them their rich green color is also a great natural laxative that promotes regularity.

 

5. You're Constantly Craving Unhealthy Foods

One of the biggest red flags that you are not eating enough healthy foods is the fact that you are constantly craving unhealthy ones.

When you find yourself hunting for donuts, fried foods and unhealthy processed foods, it’s time to give your body more nutrition.

 

It’s not hard to add more leafy greens to your diet. Start by knowing which ones are best for you.

 

Top ideas for good leafy greens are:

 

♦Arugula ♦Baby greens ♦Beet greens ♦Chard ♦Collards ♦Endive
♦Kale ♦Mustard ♦Parsley ♦Spinach ♦Sweet potato leaves

 

Notice that we are talking about actual leaves here. Green vegetables are good for you, but it is the leaves that contain the vitamins and minerals that will help fix some of your most pressing health issues.

 

You can add most of these greens into smoothies, salads, soups, and stews for an instant nutritional boost.
