St. Patrick Wants Your to Eat These Good For You Greens

Super foods fight carcinogens and are great for your whole system. And yes, they’re all green in color.
Broccoli – The federal diet recommendation for adults is at least three cups of dark leafy greens per week. Think broccoli, kale and spinach. Add broccoli sprouts to your foods as they pack a bigger vitamin wallop than the adult version.
Green tea – Drink it "fresh brewed as bottled" as instant teas have little effect on your health. Green tea contains catechins that work as powerful antioxidants.
Limes – Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant. A trick that my dear friend taught me is to cut up a lime and keep it in the freezer until you’re ready to squeeze it over your food or beverage. That way the limes don’t go bad and they’re cool and ready when you are. Use some in your green tea!
Pesto – Garlic blocks the formation of carcinogens in the liver and has antifungal and antibiotic properties.
