Celery… “yuck”, Broccoli… ”yuck”, Kale… ”yuck”, Spinach… ”yuck”, Cucumbers… ”yuck”……..
All of these vegetables (and many more) were vegetables that we frowned upon as a child. Some of us still frown upon these vegetables now as adults. There are two things that these vegetables have in common: 1) They are all green (obviously) 2) They are EXTREMELY important for the body. Before I get into factual information about these veggies, I want to first tell you about my experience with them.
As a child, I was “stuck in the middle” when it came to vegetables. That simply means I never took an extra effort to try new vegetables, but if my parents prepared vegetbales at home, then I would eat some and not throw a fit about it. Unlike today, as a child vegetables were not something I craved for at every meal. I mentioned this because as a child I didn’t realize how important vegetables were for my body (other than it being on the food pyramid) and I didn’t realize how great vegetables made me feel if I ate them consistently every meal and everyday. I really didn’t start focusing and noticing a difference in my body until I graduated from college. After college, I began juicing, drinking green tea, including more fruits & vegetables in my meals, and making sure I drank plenty of water daily. By doing all of this consistently, I began to notice a whole new experience on life. Seriously!!!!… I saw a positive change in my energy levels, thoughts, sleep, movements, digestion, etc.
This change in experience is a combination of everything I mentioned above and more, but green vegetables played a key role in this happening. The reason I can say that is because I consume more green vegetables than any other color vegetable on a daily basis. Also I notice an immediate boost of energy and liveliness after consuming green juices and/or green smoothies. This is my testimony on how important and great I believe green vegetables are because of how they have made me feel. Please take a look at the shortlist that I have compiled about the benefits of green vegetables and share your experience in the comment section below.

Final Wrap Up
According to experts, these are five benefits of green vegetables; however, I challenge you to figure out why green vegetables are important for your body. The most efficient way to do this is to consume, consume, consume more green vegetables and pay attention to your body’s reaction.
