" A World Health Organization study of more than 150,000 individuals, nearly half women, concluded that for people over 60, good nutrition can extend life. What we eat affects how long we live and how we feel every day we are alive!"
What does "good nutrition" mean to you? For me, today, it meant greens and beans. Sometimes I just like to keep it simple!
Dark leafy greens like kale, spinach, arugula, and even romaine, are some of the most nutrient dense foods.
Beans provide, protein, complex carbs and fiber. Beans also contain a powerhouse of nutrients including antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, such as copper, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium and zinc.
This simple meal took 10 minutes to prepare, and was filling and satisfying.
Baby kale sauteed
in coconut oil, and seasoned with curry powder. Navy beans added at the end to warm.
Not a fan of beans and greens alone? Add greens to soup finely chopped. Beans can be blended, or mashed to thicken the soup.
