YOU CAN HAVE THESE FOODS WITH EVERY MEAL!   


    nutracelle girl with veggiesYou know all that great stuff they say about vegetables? It’s all true! In addition to containing very few calories, veggies are jam-packed with age-defying, beautifying, body-boosting nutrients. Glowing skin? Check! Shiny hair? Check! More energy? Check!

    Eating more veggies can do all this and more—which is why they are the #1 food that can lead you to lifelong health. Want to lower your risk of heart disease? Just eat at least 2 and 1/2 cups of fruit and veggies every day! True health means looking and feeling your best, and these plant-based foods will give you so much natural goodness, that you’ll radiate from the inside out!  

     

    1. CONSUME FEWER CALORIES


    Veggies contain a lot of fiber, so you fill up faster. Case in point: An entire bag of spinach has just 20 calories, but tons of nutrients! 

     

    2. STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM


    Eating a diet rich in green, leafy veggies - like broccoli and bok choy - has been shown to boost your body’s natural defenses. Get ready for fewer sick days and more fabulous ones!

     

    3. KEEP YOUR SYSTEM RUNNING SMOOTHLY

     

    Enzymes and fiber in plant-based foods make them easy to break down and use as energy and nourishment, so you’ll stay lean and enjoy improved digestion

     

    4. FEEL REFRESHED AND FULL OF ENERGY!


    Dark, leafy greens are a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals and high-quality carbs that fight fatigue and replenish our bodies, especially in times of stress.

     

    5. BRIGHTER, SOFTER, MORE BEAUTIFUL SKIN!


    Vitamins in veggies don’t just keep you healthy inside, they also keep you looking youthful and sexy! “Damn girl, look at you! You’ve definitely been eating your greens!“

     

    6. HAPPINESS AND MENTAL HEALTH!


    Healthy nutrients boost your mood and improve brain function. 

     

    7. CHLOROPHYLL CLEANSE

    All veggies are awesome, but green ones earn the gold star: They contain chlorophyll, a green pigment found in all leafy greens that cleanses and detoxifies your body while improving overall health and wellness! 

     

    Enjoy these low-calorie, nutrient dense veggies whenever you like. In-season produce is inexpensive, easy to prepare and very versatile! Whether you roast Brussels sprouts, grill bell peppers, drizzle steamed broccoli with balsamic, bake some kale and eat it like chips, or make a fresh veggie juice, the possibilities are endless. Experiment, Try new combinations and find what you love best!
