The science of eating (and enjoying) your greens

Updated: Feb 9


One of the most frequent dietary recommendations I make for my patients is "add at least 1 big serving of greens per day to your diet". I frequently get looks of horror, crinkled noses, or blank stares. For most folks, cooking greens is a lost art. Eating greens is so uncommon now, that I had one "helpful" grocery store employee tell me "honey, you don't eat kale! It's a garnish!"
