Feel A Lil' Better: Because You've Got To Get Those Greens

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

We all know that leafy greens are a key aspect of a healthy, balanced diet. We see the influencers with their smoothies and restaurants boasting of their new superfood salads — is that what we're left with? Some sad, predictable salads at lunch for the sake of our health?

While that may have been your mother's plan of action, it doesn't have to be yours. Incorporating green nutrients into your life is so much easier (and tastier) than a few wilted lettuce leaves.

Each week, we're bringing you the best resources and influencers to give you a health boost. Here's what we're following this week regarding leafy greens.

Book: "The Book of Greens"

While you may think that incorporating greens has to be bland, Jenn Louis is here to prove differently. She has the solution (175 of them, actually) to tasty, nutritious meals that give you all the green gusto your body needs.

I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace.
