Mom was right: Eat (and drink) your greens

Erica Wald, a registered dietician at the University of Michigan Health System, says, "Green foods across the board are healthy in terms of their vitamin, mineral, water and antioxidant content, and St Patrick's Day is the perfect time to think about how you can incorporate more of them into your diet."

One of her "seven tips for eating green for your health" includes this one:

» Drink tea -- green tea. If you like to drink tea, consider choosing green tea instead of black, oolong or other darker teas. Green tea - next to white tea - packs the biggest punch when it comes to antioxidants. It also contains flavonoids, a class of naturally occurring plant compounds that function as antioxidants that are good for the heart, Wald says.
