Green vegetables are the food most missing in modern diets. Nutritionally, greens
are very high in calcium (120 -190 mg per cup!) They’re also high in magnesium,
iron, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, and they are a power house for Vitamin A, C, E
and K. Believe it or not, they are also crammed high with fiber, folic acid, chlorophyll
and many other micro-nutrients and phyto-chemicals – you just can’t get any better
than this. Take a look at the following two recipes to help move you into a
sensational summer!
