Green is still in!
St. Patty's Day may be over, but that doesn't mean you don't have to eat your greens!.
Avocado: Avocado is a good source of monounsaturated fats, which help lower cholesterol. Avocados also are good sources of both vitamin E and lutein, a natural antioxidant that may help maintain eye health.
Broccolini: It's packed with the cancer-fighting nutrients isothiocyanates, sulforaphane, and indoles all linked with reducing the risk of breast, prostate, cervical, lung, and other cancers and offers as much vitamin C as orange juice.
Tomatillo: The vegetable, which is a good source of vitamin C and potassium, is used in salsa verde and can be eaten raw.
