Collard greens. $.69/bunch at my local Kroger. I use them raw in a marinated chopped salad, stir-fried with a little curry powder and tofu, or cooked the traditional way seasoned with turkey instead of bacon fat. I buy one or two bunches/week. I also sub them in any recipe calling for kale.

Great post! I've steered away from pomegranate since it can be tough to get those seeds out. When I was a kid in the South - we were fine with picking the seeds out one at a time. We even made a sport of it and let our mom worry about the stains on our shirts. HOWEVER - I heard of a trick recently in which you cut it in half and slam it on the counter to pop the seeds out. I have yet to try it but I think this little tidbit may just help me overcome my fear of bringing a pomegranate home from the grocery!
Sardines - hmmm - got a can of those in my cupboard - bought specifically for their nutritional benefits. Haven't worked up the courage to venture there yet.

I am a big user of Kale. Great superfood I believe! It is abundant in Phytochemicals, substances associated with the prevention of cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, & hypertension. These a 4 of the leading causes of death in western countries. It also contains 45 different flavanoids which provide antioxidants & anti-inflammatory benifits. These are just a few of the benifits that kale has. So one to add to your diet I believe. Get more info at www.eatwelllookfantastic.com

You should try and buy organic and raw when you can
