About leafy vegetables

Boost the nutrition level of your diet by adding some leafy vegetables. Abundant in vitamins and minerals, these foods include different types of edible plant leaves that grow above the ground. Adding these veggies to your diet can enhance your meals' taste, color, and texture, protect you from chronic diseases, and improve your well-being. Among greens, there are many great options you can choose from, such as:
  • Spinach: An excellent source of vitamin A, K1, and B9 (folate), this leafy vegetable also provides a good supply of flavonoids. Spinach is a versatile ingredient that can enhance soups, pies, sandwiches, and stews. According to clinical research, it may also have cardiovascular and anti-inflammatory benefits. 
  • Lettuce: Whether you opt for romaine, green leaf, red leaf, or iceberg lettuce, each offers you a good supply of vitamin A and beta carotene. Additionally, you can obtain vitamin K1 and vitamin B9. Add this crunchy green to your salads, burgers, and baguettes!
  • Cabbage: You can purchase this veggie in a range of vibrant colors, such as white, green, red, and purple. It offers a robust supply of vitamin C and K. By incorporating this green into your diet, you can also boost your vitamin B9, manganese, vitamin B6, and calcium intake. 
  • Bok Choy: Low in calories with a good supply of vitamins C, A, and K1, this veggie is a great source of hydration. It also contains small quantities of many other nutrients, such as vitamin B9, vitamin B6, vitamin B2, calcium, and manganese. Enjoy it in a stir-fry or a healthy sandwich. 
  • Kale: Like spinach, kale is a nutrient-dense veggie that provides a plentiful supply of vitamins A and K1. Research indicates that its nutrients, such as vitamin C and carotenoids, can help protect your vision. It may also enable the reduction of blood glucose levels after a meal. 
  • Collard greens: Like kale, this popular leafy vegetable is a great source of vitamins A, C, and K1.
  • Endive: This vegetable is a good source of vitamins K1, C, A, and B9. You can also benefit from its manganese content. Use endive raw in a crunchy, cheesy salad or cooked in pasta or a ciabatta.   
  • Escarole: This lettuce and endive lookalike offers many nutrients, such as vitamins K, A, and C. Additionally, it contains copper, zinc, and fiber. 
  • Chard: This is a superior source of vitamin K1. You can also benefit from its supply of vitamin C, carotenoids, and magnesium. Try it with olive oil, toasted breadcrumbs, parmesan, salt, onions, and lemon for a tasty salad.

FAQs About Leafy Vegetables

Storing your greens effectively enables you to get the best benefits from them. Try these easy steps to optimize your leafy vegetable storage: 
  • Remove all the packaging from your leafy vegetables, such as rubber bands, twist ties, and bags. It's best to store them without the packaging to enable ventilation and delay rot. 
  • Wash your greens thoroughly and let them dry a little. This is an essential step that gets rid of any dirt on your produce and freshens it. 
  • Wrap your leafy veggies loosely in a terrycloth towel or a similar option, which will be more effective than using bags.  
  • Store your greens in a relatively cooler, glassed section of your fridge, such as the crisper, if you're planning to eat them within the next seven days. 
  • Blanche your leafy vegetables in boiling water for about 30 seconds, cool them in a bowl with ice, dry them in a colander, wrap them tightly, and add them to your freezer if you're planning on enjoying them sometime in the future.
