3. Collard Greens
This southern staple that is also believed to bring good luck at the New Year offers powerful doses of bone-building calcium too. 1 cup of boiled collard greens fills you up with 26% of your daily recommended value of calcium in addition to huge amounts of Vitamins A (288% of your daily recommended value) and C (57% of your daily recommended value) which support eye and immune health.
The 8g of fiber in a boiled cup of collard greens also prevents constipation and promotes healthy digestive functioning. Collards can easily be added to soups or sauteed on their own with garlic for a savory, ‘comfort food’ type dish.
