The Best Dairy-Free Ways to Get More Calcium #12: Turnip Greens

November 03, 2014 1 min read

Turnip greens are a veggie you may not have heard of, but it's surprisingly good for your health! They're basically the leaves sprouting from the tops of turnips--the part that is usually cut off. Instead of throwing them away, however, it's a good idea to eat them! They may be bitter, but you'll find that a cup of chopped and cooked turnip greens gives you 197 milligrams of calcium. That's 20% of the Daily Value of this important mineral! The greens aren't just loaded with calcium, but they also contain folate, or folic acid. Folic acid is a nutrient that promotes cellular growth, which is why it's recommended for pregnant women. It's one of the most important B vitamins for overall health.

  • Support your body's detoxification
  • Provide antioxidants
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Boost heart health
  • Aid in digestion
It's worth cooking them up and eating them, not just for their calcium content, but for the many health benefits these odd-tasting greens can provide!
