Since a few weeks, I'm adding leafy greens to my daily morning smoothie. But I remembered something about Nitrate and Leafy Greens and I looked it up at the website from the Voedingscentrum, the dutch government-supported website about food.
It warns people, eat leafy greens (and beetroot and fennel), but no more than two times a week, because of the harmful nitrate in it. Some of the nitrate comes from fertilizer, but not all. If you buy organic, they say you are better off. So. I'm eating at least 6 green smoothies a week and 3 of 4 salads, and some juices with beetroot or fennel. Have you ever heard about this? What to do with it? I'm worried.
Well I guess it's just one of those days. thanks if you can reassure me!
