It’s Friday, it’s Friday – and that former teen singer now has 1 million followers on Instagram. 2020 really isn’t quitting, is it.
 
This week I was walking through the “victory garden” my better half planted in our backyard while I was out of town. I sort of liked our grass, especially now that it’s summer and I could sit out there and read a book. But now, the grass has been replaced by fruit trees, raised beds for veggies, and about 30 tomato plants. She also turned our deck into 40 feet of boxes for every sort of green vegetable imaginable. Once I got over the fact that we are rapidly running out of places to sit around here, I’m pretty grateful.
 
Why? Because as Gordon Gecko famously said “greens are good.” Or something like that.
 
Let me count at least 5 ways that greens make the difference between a life well lived and a life you could pawn off on someone else and feel sort of guilty about.
  • They’re good for your stress levels: Lower stress is something everyone can agree is beneficial right now. Folate, which is found in leafy greens, triggers dopamine and serotonin production. Dopamine and serotonin are “happy chemicals” that can boost your mood (even though you’re eating the same vegetable three nights in a row).
  • They make your tummy a little flatter, and not for the reason you think: Greens contain a lot of potassium, which is the mineral that can help balance fluids in your body and decrease bloating. You need potassium if you’re eating too much sodium… and most of us are (I’m sorry but those Russet Chips from Trader Joes call to me).
  • They help with chronic inflammation: Chronic inflammation is the silent killer. Greens are loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols that combat this scourge.
  • They give you better skin: People tell me I look young and it’s not just because I’ve put a filter on my webcam. There is loads of research on the positive impact of Beta-carotene on sun damage and wrinkles (kale is your friend here).
  • They heal your gut: I wasn’t going to let that one go, was I? Without losing everyone in the science, broccoli has compounds that bind to gut receptors known as AHRs through a mechanism called indolocarbazole which… you know what? Forget it.  Just trust me – broccoli is fantastically effective at helping your gut. And therefore, you stay healthy.
I can hear it now...“Stefan, I live in a 600 sq foot studio apartment – I don’t have room for a victory garden.” I hear you – when I lived in an apartment I didn’t either. Luckily, you can get this – an indoor, hydroponic growing device that we use all winter to grow our greens (we may have more than one…). Totally organic, all non-GMO and the food just tastes better. This model starts to get a little bonkers expensive, but once you have it, the growing is cheap and it’s a great way to brighten up the home.
 
In any case, even if you’re just punishing a bag of organic arugula from TJ’s every 2 days – GET YOUR GREENS. Try doubling up for the next two weeks and see how much better you feel.
 
Onward!
Stefan
