What you get
Dark leafy greens are particularly rich in vitamins A, C and K. Collards, mustard greens and escarole are also excellent sources of folate, important for women of child-bearing age.
- Shopping Tip
- Look for crisp, brightly colored greens; avoid those that are wilted or blemished. Bunches of smaller-sized leaves are often sweeter.
- Storage Tip
- Store unwashed; wrap stem ends in damp paper towels and refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to 10 days.
