I wanted to share a little piece of my wellness journey that has made a significant impact on my life – my love affair with green veggies! 🥦🥬
A couple of years ago, I made a conscious decision to incorporate more green vegetables into my daily diet, but I was not very consistent with my “so called conscious decision”, and the result was nothing. We all know the benefits of green veggies but never make habit of consuming it with consistency and discipline. Let’s manifest — I will have amazing benefits. Here are my upcoming benefits I am going to experience on this green journey that go beyond just physical health:
1️⃣ Increased Energy Levels:
One of the most noticeable changes is going to be the boost in my energy levels. Those afternoon slumps became a thing of the past, and I find myself more alert and focused throughout the day.
2️⃣ Glowing Skin:
They say beauty comes from within, and I couldn’t agree more. The vitamins and antioxidants in green veggies have done wonders for my skin. I’ve noticed a natural radiance and clarity that I hadn’t experienced before.
3️⃣ Improved Digestion:
Green veggies are a powerhouse of fiber, and incorporating them into my meals has significantly improved my digestion. Bloating and discomfort are now rare occurrences, and I feel lighter after meals.
4️⃣ Mood Booster:
Believe it or not, my mood has seen a positive shift since I started loading up on greens. The nutrients in these veggies have been linked to improved mental well-being, and I can vouch for that firsthand.
5️⃣ Weight Management:
While not the primary goal, I’ve noticed that maintaining a healthy weight has become more effortless with the addition of green veggies. They are low in calories but high in nutrients, making them an excellent choice for anyone on a wellness journey.
