15 Shades of Green

People are still obsessed with the colour grey. At EatFirst, we prefer green! We’re firm believers that living a healthy lifestyle is the secret to a happier life. This means better eating, a greener environment and being active. Here are our fifteen examples of why green is a colour you need in your life!


  1. Peas are tiny, green balls of goodness which are high in protein.

  2. Fresh mint leaves add flavour and nutrition to many dishes.

  3. Moving to areas with parks supposedly improves mental health.

  4. Broccoli is a vegetable that works well in salads, stir fries, curries and soups.

  5. Green tea is great for flushing out toxins in the body.

  6. Some British surveys suggest a well-maintained garden can improve property prices by as much as 15%.

  7. Lime juice has natural oils that benefit the skin.

  8. Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world.

  9. Kale is a low calorie superfood, high in fibre, iron and has zero fat.

  10. According to preliminary research, asparagus may help slow the aging process.

  11. Apparently, Andy Warhol refused to wear any underwear unless it was green!

  12. ‘Jack in the Green’ is a folk festival that occurs in the UK and across the world. It is to celebrate the start of Summer.

  13. The skin of a pear holds many antioxidants.

  14. Green grapes make white wine, cheers!

  15. Spirulina has powerful, positive effects on the brain and body.

We could continue to write a whole fifty reasons why green is good for us! But for now, we feel this is enough. If you’re a believer of a ‘greener’ life then you’ll be happy to hear that EatFirst packaging is recyclable, and green is a vital part in many of our dishes!
