Leafy Greens

Most people, even those who are not vegetable lovers, will eat a green salad. “Eat leafy greens everyday.” My favorites are baby lettuces with herbs such as parsley, basil and dill, spinach salads and kale. According to WebMD the most widely-eaten greens from most nutritious to least are:

 

  1. Kale
  2. Collards
  3. Turnip Greens
  4. Swiss Chard
  5. Spinach
  6. Mustard Greens
  7. Broccoli
  8. Red and Green Leaf and Romaine Lettuce
  9. Cabbage
  10. Iceberg Lettuce

Be adventurous and work your way up the leafy list to sample greens you have never tried. I found I love kale after experimenting with different dressings and now I could eat a kale salad everyday!
