Fifteen Shades of Green

Fifteen Shades of Green

Everyone is talking about the latest Box Office hit - 50 Shades of Grey. At EatFirst, we prefer the colour Green! We’re firm believers that living a healthy lifestyle is key to a happier life. But a healthy lifestyle isn’t just about the food, it’s about fitness levels and the environment too. Some think it’s difficult to make a change in what they eat and do but that’s where they’re wrong, it’s easy!

This is why we wrote down fifteen points as to why we need green in our lives, from Apples to Recycling!

  1. Peas are tiny, green balls of goodness, plus high in protein which will leave you feeling full after eating them. So you won’t be eyeing up the pack of custard creams that your co-worker is munching on.

  2. Fresh mint leaves add flavour and nutrition to many different recipes.

  3. On average, moving to areas with parks improves mental health.

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

  5. Green tea contains B vitamins, folate, potassium, and magnesium.

  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. Asparagus neutralizes cell-damaging free radicals. This, according to preliminary research, 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. You should always eat the skin of the pear because it holds many antioxidants.

  14. Green grapes make white wine, cheers!

  15. At EatFirst, we encourage a healthy, balanced diet so we often include fresh greens into our meals. The cutlery we provide is eco-friendly and even our packaging is green!
