This is a very simple, but super nutritious dish and a favorite go-to when I don’t have enough time. I like to serve it over rice or in this case, quinoa salad. Sauteed Greens have powerhouse nutrition and here’s what Dr. Fuhrman has to say…“Raw leafy greens contain only about 100 calories per pound and are packed with nutrients. Leafy greens contain substances that protect blood vessels and are associated with reduced risk of diabetes.
Greens are an excellent tool for weight loss since they can be consumed in virtually unlimited quantities. Leafy greens are also the most nutrient-dense of all foods. Green vegetables are rich in folate (the natural form of folic acid), calcium, and contain small amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
Be sure to try these plant-based sides:
Leafy greens are also rich in antioxidant pigments called carotenoids, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin, which are the carotenoids known to promote healthy vision. Also, several leafy greens and other green vegetables (such as bok choy, broccoli, and kale) belong to the cruciferous family of vegetables.” And, we all know how healthy those are!
Enjoy on a regular basis!
