Greens are micronutrient dense, which means they pack a big punch in a tiny package. While they should take up the largest part of your plate, they actually contain very few calories. The purpose of filling your plate with greens is to pack a ton of essential nutrients into your diet without needing to consume a large amount of calories.
2. Fight disease
Plants contain phytonutrients, which are important compounds that are found only in plants! These compounds are so crucial because they prevent age-related diseases like heart disease, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases. Plants also contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.
