Summer is one of my favorite times of the year because I can reap the rewards of my garden I start in spring. I grew many things this year mostly from seed because I purchased a collection of 50 variety pack of veggie seeds on Amazon. Collard Greens was one of the most abundant crops that grew and they’ve been doing great since I planted them. They are hearty even through the droughts of the summer and keep making leaves.
There’s also many health benefits to dark leafy greens. Collard greens are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and calcium, a rich source of vitamin K, and a good source of iron, vitamin B-6, and magnesium. They also contain thiamin, niacin, pantothenic acid, and choline
There’s many things you can do with leafy green vegetables but it’s difficult to think of something right off the cuff. My go to is an omelete or frittata. It’s an incredibly easy and delicious way to integrate them into your diet. For this recipe you can find collards usually at your local grocery store or at a produce market as well.
