If you’ve spent any time on this site you know how I feel about dark leafy greens.  They’re the best!  They’ve got just a few calories and loads of nutrients like fiber, B vitamins, calcium, and ironBulking up your diet with kale, chard, collards, and spinach can help you get the nutrition you need without excess calories you don’t.  Here are some ideas for adding these antioxidant-rich vegetables onto your plate and into your life!

Root mash with greens:  Slice your greens very finely (see a chiffonade technique demonstrated in this video) and stir them into mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, or parsnips.

Massaged greens salad:  Put your greens in a bowl and add a small amount of olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.  Massage the leaves with a firm squeeze until they soften and relax a bit.  Use this salad to top a protein like fish, chicken, or eggs.

Green smoothie:  Combine a good handful of greens with frozen peaches, plain yogurt, and a peeled orange in the blender.  Blend until smooth, then enjoy right away!
