The latest word from the nutrition front is that green, leafy vegetables may be our most powerful weapon against cancer and other diseases of aging. Plus, most dark leaf greens are high in nutrients such as beta-carotene, anti-oxidants, folic acid and fiber.

In Greens Glorious Greens! Johnna Albi and Catherine Walthers, both gourmet natural foods chefs, unlock the mysteries of buying and preparing these delicious vegetables. In an easy-to-use, A-to-Z format, they cover 30 different greens, providing nutritional information and a brief historical profile for each.
