Mustard Greens

Greens: Green leafy vegetables are a rich source of vitamins like C and K and minerals, and therefore, they can be considered as superfoods. Kale, from the West, has been recognised recently as a superfood but we have one too many greens in our regular Indian markets too that have exceptional benefits. “Moringa leaves (drumstick leaves) are a rich source of iron and calcium, and methi leaves, mustard leaves as well as spinach all fit the bill. The high water content with hardly any calories makes them a competitive superfood,” says Dr Palaniappan.
