Heart Healthy Tips

Collards are:

  • Highly nutritious and low in calories
  • Good source of Vitamins A, C and K, calcium and iron
  • Contain 3 grams of fiber per ½ cup serving
  • Try using half the recommended amount of fat when preparing in a recipe

NOTE: If you take Warfarin (Coumadin®), foods high in Vitamin K (such as leafy greens like collards) may affect the way your medication works. If you do eat Vitamin K-rich foods, eat the same amount each day and throughout the year. Do not eat a small amount one day and a large amount the next. If you have any questions or concerns about eating leafy greens, please talk to your doctor.
