Superfood tip: Tips for adding more greens to your diet

Craig Press staff report
Loaded with nutrients such as calcium, potassium, vitamins A, C and K, folate and antioxidants, kale and other leafy greens have been shown to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. The superfood is easy to prepare and to sneak into a wide variety of dishes for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Vegetables are an important part of a balanced diet.

Do you have a bag of greens in the refrigerator? Do you know you should eat them, but are tired of salad?

Vegetables may be eaten raw or cooked; fresh, frozen, canned, or dried/dehydrated; and may be whole, cut-up, or mashed.

Add greens to your smoothies, baby spinach leaves or kale to a stir-fry, pasta sauce, wraps, or omelets.
