The last time I had collard greens they were smothered in butter, mixed with bacon, and accompanied by corn bread and over a pound of ribs. Little did I know that this Southern favorite is a superfood.
Collard greens are high in indole-3-carbinol, a potent anti-estrogen. Collard greens belong to the cruciferous vegetable family. Like kale, mustard greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage, collard greens are rich in sulforaphane, which has anti-cancer properties.
- 1 large bunch of collard greens

You may want to add an apple for sweetness.
