lower risk for Alzheimer’s disease. It’s all the more reason to enjoy that avocado toast! EDAMAME Looking for a filling mid-afternoon snack? Skip the potato chips and help yourself to some edamame. These Japanese soybeans are a familiar sight on sushi menus, but they’re also readily available in the freezer section of your local grocery store. Edamame is delicious and a great source of protein, making it the perfect snack. WATERCRESS Step aside, kale; here’s the real queen of green. With more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach, and more vitamin C than an orange, watercress is one of the best greens you’re not eating. With all of these extra vitamins, watercress has been shown to improve heart health, bone health, and even act as an antidepressant. Next time you need a pick-me-up, consider a watercress salad. Your whole body will thank you! Bad childhood encounters with canned spinach or steamed Brussels sprouts are why many people avoid green veggies. But the produce section is full of tasty, healthy options waiting to appear on your dinner plate and improve your well-being. It’s All Green to Me THE BEST GREEN FOODS TO ADD TO THE MENU

You need to eat more green foods.

No, this doesn’t mean green Skittles. Green vegetables comprise one of the most important food groups,

and most people aren’t eating enough of them. But if you do decide to get more nutrients from green veggies, remember that not all greens are created equal. Dark leafy spinach is basically a superfood, offering protein, iron, vitamin A, and tons of minerals. Meanwhile, iceberg lettuce or celery may fill your stomach up, but they offer little to no nutritional value. Next time you’re at the grocery store, keep an eye out for these top-rated green vegetables that are both delicious and nutritious.

Researchers have recently noted that people who get most of their vitamin E from their diet tend to have a Help Us Celebrate National Little League Week!

Little League games captivated the country during their formation in the 1930s. In fact, in 1964, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed the second week in June to be National Little League Week in recognition of the youth program’s ability to instill sportsmanship, volunteerism, physical fitness, and an appreciation for the game. If you played sports growing up, you know that the positive lessons kids learn from athletics aren’t unique to Little League. For example, our attorney Don Jorgensen grew up playing football. In high school, he served as a linebacker, which is often regarded as the most important position due to its versatility. Punt returns under those Friday Night Lights were definitely the highlights of his sports career, and Don’s favorite practice drill was Suicide Squad — an activity where the ball is punted and

the person who catches it has to weave between all the players and make it to the other side without being tackled. To this day, Don believes that the best part of playing football was the close friendships he forged with his teammates. Win or lose, they always shared in the joy and excitement of the game together. Learning how to collaborate with others on the field, court, or diamond translates well into being a successful adult.
