Greens-4-Life

There are over 15 types of cooking greens, that include Kale, Chard, Mustard, Turnip, and Collards, greens are becoming increasingly popular for their pronounced health benefits. Collards, “the king of greens,” grown for their large, dark-colored, edible leaves and as a garden ornamental; contain phytonutrients that help to lower our cancer risk by supporting our detox and anti-inflammatory systems. In a recent study, steamed collard greens out shined steamed kale, mustard greens, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and cabbage in terms of its ability to bind bile acids in the digestive tract.
