A certain dislike for vegetables is common among many. It appears early in childhood. Those who consider vegetable as heaven are considered rare and other-worldly. Despite the fact that we know that they are probably nutritious, we still shudder at the thought of them.

Well, you are missing half of your life, in the literal sense. Here are the healthiest green you should be eating:

BOK CHOY

Usually prepared by stir-frying, this Asian specialty is added on salads and hot soup. This can also be eaten as it is beginning with its white stalk and dark green leaves.

A cooked bok choy has 20 calories per cup of serving. It gives 144 percent of the needed Vitamin A and 74 percent of vitamin C. Its leaves contain magnesium, folate, potassium, and calcium.

SWISS CHARD

This vegetable has close resemblance to spinach. It is branched from the beet family. It has always been used as spinach substitute because of its salty, bitter taste.

One cup of cooked chard has 22 percent of the recommended daily dose of iron and its vitamin C at 36 percent. It also offers folic acid, potassium, protein and calcium. Your bones are sure to be kept strong because of Vitamin K.

BROCCOLI RABE

Although closely related to turnips, Broccoli rabe resembles, well, a standard broccoli. It has this robust and flavorful taste that makes it a popular choice among Italian chefs.

It is known to fight cancer due to its high amount of phytochemicals. With just 3 and a half ounce of serving, it meets more than half of the recommended daily portions of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. It is also home to folate that protects babies from defects and heart ailments, alongside calcium and fiber.

KALE

Closely related to the curled cabbage, its earthy flavor has made people give in to this vegetable. A cup of this vegetable gives the recommended daily dosage of vitamin A, vitamin K, and Vitamin C. It is known to lessen the risks of cancers such as breast cancer, colon cancer and ovarian cancers.
