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.
