If you need more incentive to eat your leafy green vegetables, this podcast is especially for you.

Did you know leafy green vegetables are superfoods? They are rich in vitamins and minerals. Low in calories and high in fiber and calcium. Greens can lower your risk of certain cancers, heart disease, and osteoporosis.

Dark leafy green vegetables can even help manage your weight.  Not only that, evidence keeps piling up that leafy greens such as spinach and kale can keep your brain sharp and save your memory.

Today’s podcast explores all the new and extraordinary breakthrough studies that could change the way you look at dark leafy green vegetables.

Furthermore, we discuss tasty ways to eat and include more greens in your diet.

I hope you enjoy today’s podcast. You can find all of Ordinary Vegan’s recipes and CBD Oil products at OrdinaryVegan.net.

My new book, “The Easy 5-Ingredient Vegan Cookbook”, is now available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle edition.

Over the years, my philosophy on cooking plant-based grows, and how I execute recipes keeps evolving. When I was presented with the challenge of developing 100 plant-based recipes with only five ingredients, at first, I was hesitant.

But then I realized that one of the most common barriers to eating plant-based foods was the learning curve and the time it took to cook. And I wanted to share my knowledge and everything I have learned to help make things easy and delicious for you.

Are you looking to increase serotonin and dopamine naturally?

Maybe to fight the winter blues or perhaps to help with more serious mental health issues.

Let”s face it. People are feeling more and more anxious these days. Between the threat of global warming, the coronavirus, and every day news events being stressed and sad it at an all time high.

Feeling sad is part of being human and temporary. Depression is more than ordinary sadness. It can cause anxiety, fatigue, trouble with concentration, and a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. 

Researchers have been studying the link between serotonin and depression for more than five decades. Their conclusion is that having too little of this neurotransmitter can cause or contribute to depression or mental health problems.

In addition, multiple studies now show a major correlation between decreased serotonin and the  food we eat.

Today we learn how the two neurotransmitters,  serotonin, and dopamine, stabilizes our mood, feelings of well-being, and happiness. 

We also learn how these neurotransmitters work in our body and how we can increase serotonin and dopamine by the food we consume. 

Not only that, there is an exact serotonin formula that you can use whenever you are feeling sad or depressed. 

HOW TO INCREASE SEROTONIN & DOPAMINE NATURALLY WITH FOOD

I am constantly tapping into the vast pool of studies that connect food and disease, and I hope today’s podcast can help you.
