Wellness Wednesday


We grow a wide variety of greens on the farm. This article from Time points out that, while kale is the darling of the vegetable world right now, there are a number of greens with more nutrition. Here's a quick roundup of the top 10 - for nutrition details, visit the site:

  1. Collard Greens
  2. Romaine Lettuce
  3. Parsley
  4. Leaf Lettuce
  5. Chicory
  6. Spinach
  7. Beet Greens
  8. Chard
  9. Chinese Cabbage
  10. Watercress

Just because these greens beat out kale nutrition wise doesn't mean you shouldn't eat them. Eating a wide variety of greens (as well as other fruits and vegetables) means you get the benefit of the best that each one offers.
