Dark leafy greens are nutrient dense. That means that they are low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals. Leafy greens have about 10-35 calories per half cup (125mL) cooked. They are high in fibre and rich in folate calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C. Leafy greens are also low in fat and sodium. Canada’s Food Guide recommends you eat one dark leafy green each day. Up your intake by adding chopped kale, spinach or Swiss chard to pasta sauces, stir fries, or soups.
