“Super foods,” have been the rage for several years.
Those are the things that, if we eat them, are said to protect us from a variety of health issues.
In the past few years blueberries, broccoli, fish oil, and green leafy vegetables have all taken their turn at the head of the list.

4 Beet greens
7 Leaf lettuce

10 Collard greens
