Green is in. And for good reason. Green leafy vegetables offer a wealth of nutritional value including vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Unfortunately, many of us fail miserably when it comes to getting the USDA’s minimum daily recommendation of 3 cups of dark green leafy vegetables per week.
Here’s a delicious recipe that you can use to prepare just about any type of green.
Kale, collard greens, Swiss chard can be prepared quickly and you don’t have to wait until Sunday to have them.
