Get Fresh.  Go Collard Greens, you rock!

 

Over the past few weeks we have mentioned some health benefits of various greens.  We have mostly talked about anti-oxidants, and cancer fighting benefits.  Well, every week, we throw something else at you! 

It is the green season.  Things are turning green outside, flowers are blooming, and at Mäni’s things are greener than ever. 

Collard Greens!  I bet you didn’t see that coming.  No, seriously, collard greens.  I’ve known they were good for me.  But when I found out how good they really are for me, and you, I almost freaked out. 

Lets talk about our immune system for a second.  In addition to all the standard (now that we are infatuated with the benefits of eating green) cancer fighting anti-oxidant benefits, we now have some powerful immune boosting elements.  Mainly then fact that 1 cup of collard greens contains 118% of your RDA for Vitamin A, 57.6% of Vitamin C, and 53.5% of the rare element Manganese (which helps your body utilize Vitamin A, which protects our mitochondria, which is the power plant in almost every cell in our body). 

Not to mention everything else listed in this helpful breakdown of all the nutrients in one cup, cooked.

And, if you are into exercising and keeping your body in tune, which I believe is the third element of Balanced Living, Collard Greens are also a magnificent source of calcium.  One cup providing 22% of your RDA, 1 cup of milk provides 30% of your RDA.  Are you Vegetarian?  Don’t drink milk?  Go green yo!

So, if you haven’t tried collard greens before, come by Mäni’s Bakery Café, our restaurant and bakery on fairfax, and starting Wednesday we will be serving collard greens.  We’ve been serving Kale, Collard’s cousin, since “Get Fresh. Go Green” started.

  2. Hi Jenny-I will speak to our chef, and work on the idea of recipes.  A simple recipe for how to cook greens could be nice!  I have been doing them at home over the past week, and they haven’t been quite like ours at the restaurant.

  16. Great post! I’m just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well – resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it’s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in this case.
