5 Tasty Ways To Eat Your Greens

By Angie McGowan |

Leafy, green vegetables are an essential part of our diet. They are so nutritious. I try and make sure my family has at least 1 serving of leafy greens everyday. Being from the south, my favorite greens are collards, mustard greens and turnip greens. Sometimes these are a little bitter for my family though. They like greens like spinach, kale and chard much more. Greens are full of vitamins and minerals, and lots of Vitamin K. Remember that Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin, so to get all the health benefits from your greens, make sure to either cook them with a little oil or, if eating them raw in a salad, to dress them with a salad dressing that contains a fat of some sort.

    We are on a leafy green kick lately since I have been able to find a local grocery store in Puerto Rico that carries Swiss Chard and Kale. I have traveled about an hour and a half just to purchase the leafy greens. Closer to my home there isn’t a big demand for it since the Puerto Rican diet isn’t known for that. But I have learned how to diversify our cuisine from Indian, Thai, and Chinese where I know they use greens.
