Mustard Greens: Spicy mustard greens are effective in lowering cholesterol and provide a healthy dose of riboflavin, niacin, magnesium and iron They are a storehouse of phytonutrients that have many disease-preventing properties.

Parsley: Parsley is rich in antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and fiber and is known to help reduce aging and regulate blood sugar levels.

Spinach: Perhaps the most beloved green leafy vegetable of them all, spinach is mild tasting and not as bitter as other greens. Its dark green leaves really pack a punch with high levels of omega-3s, calcium, magnesium, and vitamins A, C, E and K. When most people start drinking green smoothies, they start with spinach!

Turnip Greens: Turnip greens, although slightly bitter, are very flavorful. Turnip greens are effective at providing many numerous health benefits, but they stand out amongst other green leafy veggies in their ability to fight the development of cancerous cells.

    I love greens so much. The last time I took my grandson(6) to the doctor she explain to him he need to eat good food. He told her "Mom will just make me eat greens again." She looked at me curiously and I laughed and told her he was griping about having to eat greens. She got a big laugh.
