Nutritional tip

Two Superfoods to Eat Daily:

1: Green Leafy Vegetables

Green leafy vegetables like kale, collards, bok choy, arugula, mustard and dandelion greens are packed with many vitamins and minerals, plus they are high in fiber and low in calories. They also help build strong blood and bones, so turn to them instead of a glass of milk (some studies indicated that drinking too much milk can actually strip the body of calcium, due to the levels of phosphorus, which competes for calcium in the body).

2: Sea Vegetables

Unless you live in the East, sea vegetables are probably a bit foreign to you. You may have eaten sushi (or california rolls), which is wrapped in Nori. But, you have you ever heard of Arame, Hijiki, Dulse, Wakame or Kombu before? Sea vegetables are true gifts from the sea, rich in vitamins and trace minerals.
