Seasonal Spotlight: Winter Greens

Why Eat Winter Greens?

Winter greens range from tender leaf lettuces to some of the robust nutritional powerhouses of kale, spinach and chard, which are rich in Vitamin A, C, K and B vitamins. High in fiber and low in calories, winter greens are a healthy addition to any diet.

How to Prepare Them?

Lettuce is often eaten raw and cold, but other winter greens can be prepared in a variety of ways, including raw, sauteed or added to soups or quiche.
