Greens such as cilantro and spinach are some of the healthiest foods on the planet, offering a range of benefits from better digestion to stronger inflammation-fighting powers. Still, even though we know we should add more greens to our diet, many of us fail to do so. Perhaps it’s because greens don’t really get your mouth salivating as other foods do.

If that’s the case, then it’s time you add some tricks to your repertoire that will help you make any type of green taste delicious. For instance, kale tastes a whole lot better when it’s marinated. By covering kale with a mixture of acid, oil, and salt, not only will it taste better, but it will also be easier for your body to break down.

Smoothies are another tasty way to sneak more greens into your diet. Along with the usual fruits, add some fresh leafy greens to your smoothies—you’ll be surprised how easily they balance each other out.

On the lookout for more genius ways to eat your greens? Here are 9 more.

This story was one of the best from 2019, and we are happy to include it in our “12 Days of Optimism” as we get ready to welcome 2020!
