Nutritious and delicious! Try it wrapped with prosciutto and grilled, or in other tasty recipes
  8. Kale – 4 g. Hardier than spinach, less watery, but just as nutritious, kale can stand up to mincing, sautéing, baking, and much more. Cut into ribbons, it makes a great noodle substitute for zesty sauces. Recipes
  9. Green beans – 4 g. Frenched, diced and tossed in a salad, fricasseed and more, green beans taste great especially with added fats like butter, an olive-oil vinaigrette, or bacon. Recipes
  10. Brussels sprouts – 5 g. Nutty, filling and nutritious, they are especially good roasted with olive oil and garlic, or with bacon. Or steam and serve with a cheese cream sauce. Recipes
