This powerhouse veggie has a high iron content (good for your blood and muscles) as well as folate, which helps ensure a healthy pregnancy and decreases the risk of birth defects,4 but also helps fight depression and keep your heart healthy5. The baby leaves (perfect for salad greens!) don’t need much heat to wilt, so use them as a bed for a hot dish or simply put the leaves on top for some extra nutrients. The heartier the leaf, the better for cooking.
