Boost Your Nutrition With Faster, Easier Prep of Dark Leafy Greens (like Kale!)

Coppell, TX (PRWEB) November 08, 2012

Leafy green vegetables, particularly the dark green variety, are a great source of vitamins, minerals and plant-based substances that can protect against heart disease, diabetes and even some forms of cancer.

Greens are the #1 food you can eat regularly to improve your health, said Jill Nussinow, MS, RD, a nutrition educator, registered dietitian and author known as The Veggie Queen.

No dirty rinse water is ever retained in the bowl, so there is no risk of it splashing back on the greens.
