Winter Greens

Just as we start to really get into the summer produce, the tomatoes disappear and the cravings change form Cucumbers to Chard and Kale.  Hardy greens only grow sweeter as the weather grows cooler, inspiring new colder weather recipes that have more Kale, Chard, Arugula, and Bok Choy in them. 

Kale

The trendiest if there is such a thing of the winter greens.  It's many options is delicious, and like the others green mentioned here, has an abundance of nutritional benefits.  It's got a slightly bitter flavor and but high in minerals.  Is there anything Kale can't do.

Arugula

This peppery Mediterranean weed delivers a whole lot of goodness.  It's a source of vitamins A,C, and K, and like other winter greens- it may reduce risks of cancer.  It makes a great partner with steaks and other rich foods.

Chard

Ranking near the top of the list of the most nutrient- dense Vegetables, chard helps with controlling blood sugar and supports the nervous system.  It's sweeter then the other winter greens mentioned here (kale).  The sturdy leaves hold up well to heat.

Bok Choy

Sweet and Versatile, this Asian green is rich source of beta- carotene and delivers a whopping dose of vitamin K, which protects against diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis. Hello helper of many!
