Raw Leafy Veggies: the Key to a Long Life


Every other person wishes to live a long life. Do you, too?  Here’s the secret that many nonagenarians and centenarians follow.

Well, the key to longevity is simple. Eat healthily!

Scientific research has shown that raw, leafy green vegetables, which we commonly refer to as SALAD has a strong positive association with increased longevity in humans. I couldn’t agree more about their findings. I’ve known at least two nonagenarians who had only vegetables and (occasionally) some fish in their diet. They shared that most often, their meals consisted of malunggay (horseradish) soup and alugbati (vine spinach) salad among other vegetables available in the house.

Green leafy vegetables are packed with fiber, phytochemicals, and other essential nutrients.

The most nutrient-dense of all foods are found in kale, spinach, Swiss chard, romaine lettuce, and collards.

Consuming raw vegetables is your effective shield against any form of cancer and other ailments. And, the good thing about eating salad is that you can get filled up, even stuffed, and yet you are not consuming excess calories.
