Simple Mustard Greens
Mustard greens is the ideal healthy comfort food. I usually make an entire bunch and eat it all as a meal; it is filling and one of the most nutritious leafy greens. This veggie has cancer fighting properties, vitamin C and E (fights free radicals), Vitamin K (for bone and blood health), and is only 21 calories per cup! Which means my big ole' bowl o' greens is only around 100 calories.
