    We all know that leafy green vegetables are good for us, but do you know why they’re so good? There are plenty of reasons but, when it comes to heart health, the secret may be nitrates and chlorophyll.

    I grow and eat a lot of dark leafy greens. From memory: microgreens, mustard greens, swiss chard, kale, collards, beet greens, turnip greens, NZ spinach — I cultivate all of these in my garden. I also gather dandelion greens in spring (before they flower) and gather piles of lambs' quarters, a happy volunteer weed, for salads and as a potherb. I can these mixed greens as well so I can consume them through the winter. A cup a day is supposed to assist memory, and I can certainly use a little assistance in that department!
