The Best Greens

From the South Beach Diet, here are the best greens for you that you should be eating.:

  • Beet greens
  • Bok choy
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Collard greens
  • Kale
  • Mustard greens
  • Romaine and red-leaf lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Swiss chard
  • Turnip greens

“…Rrich in beta-carotene, folate, and vitamins C, E, and K, which help protect against free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules that can damage cells). Eating dark greens regularly may also lower blood pressure and cholesterol, promote normal eyesight, and improve gastrointestinal function.”
