Low in Calories and High in Nutrients?!
Having good blood pressure is very important now and when you get older because your body needs healthy organs. The only way you can have healthy and clean organs is by eating good food that is rich in vitamins and minerals that your body needs day by day. For example dark leafy greens are low calories but high in good things like fiber, iron and vitamins A, C, E and K! By eating more low calorie high nutrient foods you can keep your organs working efficiently!
So, instead of reaching for chips and other types of junk food as snacks, try something fresh that will satisfy your appetite and feed your body with what it needs. Try making fresh kale chips with nothing but kale, a little olive oil and a touch of salt! With just a little baking these crispy treats will curb your craving for chips!
Remember eating healthy not only a good choice for today, but also smart choice as time goes by and you grow older.
