We started looking up nutritional information about our favorite vegetables on the internet. We discovered that one cup of mustard greens gets us 350% of our vitamin K. At least we'll be clotting well, right?
And we found out that two of our favorites, arugula and cucumbers seem to be the nutritional equivalent of eating nothing. No fiber, not enough vitamins to be worth mentioning. Why? They taste so healthy!
But luckily this finding was balanced by our discovery that one cup fava beans will give us 26% of our protien and 37% of our fiber. More favas in the upcoming year!
