Why Eat the Greens

Why Eat the Greens

 

The great world of greens will lend body and soul

To aid and abet our quest for healthy eating

Loaded with cancer fighting phyto—nutrients

These lowly greens launched all animal life

Long time ago

 

Packed with energy, not starches and sugars

No calorie counting is needed

Heart healthy and cholesterol friendly

They help build strong bodies, muscles and bones

And lower blood pressure

 

Packed with trace elements too numerous to name

Tiny natural combinations take place in chewing

Medical science is beginning to notice

And our hundred billion cells cry for these

And they each await

And hope that we drink from

This Holy Grail

 

Lurking in the produce section of our marked

These denizens of the land of plenty

Misunderstood and shunned as unprofitable

By the processed food industry

 

Abandoned by the public

In favor of taste sensations in each bite

All food must be sugared, flavored and texturized

Two chews max, and it must slide

Down the hatch—value be damned

 

If we want to regain a healthy nation

We must return to a healthy diet

On greens we can depend

To keep us healthy

And be our medicine

 

Minimally cooked, on low heat

Preferable raw, is best to eat

As natural as we can obtain

Our health to sustain
