5 Nutritious Veggies to Get You Through the Horrible Grind of the Day

April 2, 2015

Spinach

Scientists say that spinach is a storehouse for many phytonutrients which have health promotion properties. 100g of spinach contains about 25 percent of recommended daily intake of iron. After all those nutrients, who could feel powerless against the weight of 6 AP classes and after-school employment?

Broccoli

Fresh broccoli contains large amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, and fiber. The vegetable also contains B vitamins, riboflavin, and vitamin-K. Translation? Good for you. Whenever you feel down, look into the deep tufts of green of any piece of broccoli to find your inner peace.

Sweet potato

Endorsed by the first lady herself, the humble sweet potato packs a powerful punch of anti-cancer nutrients like vitamins A and C, along with manganese. Waking up at 6:25 everyday may be a struggle, but waking up is a breeze once sweet potatoes hit the table.

Avocado

Guacamole may not be the healthiest thing on earth, but at least it has avocados in it! Rich in healthy HDL fats and oleic acid, avocados help reduce the risk of breast cancer and help to lower bad cholesterol. After eating some tasty avocados, tackle your impending college deadlines and stressful financial aid decisions with ease.

Mushrooms

Commonly consumed varieties of mushrooms contain the antioxidant ergothioneine, which helps to protect cells within the body. They also lower cancer risk, reduce inflammation, and support natural detoxification processes. Humanity owes much to the peaceful tranquil mushroom.
