asparagus - Certain nutrients and compounds in asparagus are believed to offer significant health benefits. These include the reduction of high blood pressure, the promotion of a healthy pregnancy, and the avoidance of certain diseases.
artichoke - Thanks to their fiber, micronutrient, and antioxidant content, including artichokes in your diet may help promote health and prevent some diseases and conditions.
ashwaganda - This adaptogenic herb reduces stress and anxiety and naturally balances hormones and adrenals. Latin for “sleep-inducing,” ashwagandha can also improve your quality of sleep.
broccoli - Minerals in broccoli include manganese, potassium, and phosphorus. Broccoli is associated with several health benefits.
beet root - Beetroot leaves (beet greens) are rich in vitamin B6, vitamin K, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese, and antioxidants. The beet's leaves offer the same nutritional value as other dark leafy greens, such as chard and spinach: They're very low in carbohydrates and packed with many useful vitamins and minerals. But beetroot also has a lot to offer.
carrot - The positive health effects of carrots can be largely attributed to their carotenoid content (vitamin A). Carrots also provide a decent amount of fiber which offers its own host of benefits.
kale - Kale and other dark green vegetables provide great nutritional benefits for very few calories. The fiber and protein in kale can also help you to feel full and satisfied after eating. Studies have shown that diets that are higher in vegetables are sustainable and associated with greater weight loss.
spinach - Three cups of fresh spinach provides a whopping 340% of your vitamin K needs. You'll also get 35% of your manganese requirements, 25% of vitamin C, 15% of iron, and 10% of potassium.1 Cooking spinach increases its concentration of vitamin A. You get 64% of your daily value in 1/2 cup of boiled spinach.
Like most dark, leafy greens, spinach has nutrients that offer several health benefits. Spinach is a non-starchy vegetable that's perfect for anyone who is watching their carbohydrate intake or trying to boost their health.
maca - Also known as Peruvian ginseng, maca root is similar to cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower. Several studies have shown maca to be a natural mood booster by reducing depression and anxiety symptoms.
yacon root - Harvested from the roots of the yacon plant, native to the Andes mountains in South America, yacon root is a fiber-rich sweetener that's full of fructooligosaccharides, a form of soluble fiber that serves as food for the bacteria in your microbiome (known as prebiotics).
Yacon root has been studied for weight loss, but its true benefit is in its high fiber content that helps balance glucose levels. It has a glycemic index of 1. Yacon looks and tastes a bit like molasses, with a deep, caramel sweetness that lends itself well to baked goods, sauces, and desserts.
Directions: Use one spoonful in smoothies, pastas, soups, curries, salad dressing and more.
