Lower Your Diabetes Risk by Eating Dark Green Veggies!

Dark Green Veggies Can Lower Your Risk for Diabetes
I know, dark green leafy vegetables may not be on everyone’s favorite list of things to eat. Spinach, romaine, broccoli and kale sometimes get a bad rap. According to a recent study published in the British Medical Journal, these green veggies may help to lower your risk of Type II diabetes. I am always looking for things you can eat for your health that do not include medications, so this study definitely caught my eye.
The study showed that green leafy vegetables have 3 important factors:

  • Antioxidants

  • Fiber Content

  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids
