Fall Produce With Hidden Healing Powers


Mustard Greens are the new kale

If you already love spinach and kale, it’s time to introduce your kitchen to this under-the-radar leafy green. Like Brussels sprouts, mustard greens belong to the cancer-fighting cruciferous family. And the peppery leaves are rich in sulforaphane, an antioxidant enzyme booster that enhances the effects of vitamins C, E, and A, which may in turn help protect your skin from aging and environmental damage. Sauté mustard greens with sesame oil, garlic, salt and pepper, and top with toasted sliced almonds for a flavorful dinner side. Or, add the chopped greens to pasta dishes to transform an everyday entrée into an age-defying meal!
