Southern Punch

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 are a cruciferous vegetable. Like kale, mustard greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage, collard greens are rich in sulforaphane, which has anti-cancer properties.
