10 Recipes with Chlorophyll-Rich Veggies

Chlorophyll has become popular lately. People got even more curious when a liquid chlorophyll trend began on TikTok. Liquid chlorophyll has been touted as a kind of superfood miracle. However, there was little evidence to back up the enormous claims.

While the inflated claims for liquid chlorophyll aren’t all they make, consuming foods that contain chlorophyll can certainly offer you tremendous health benefits and an automatic dose of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is actually what makes plants green, and they need it to photosynthesize.

It’s the green vegetable to look for if you want to include chlorophyll in your diet in a more natural way than what is available in liquid or capsule forms. Look out for recipes that include spinach, broccoli, cabbage, and alfalfa among others. Here are some great ideas to get you started.
