Baby Spinach: Spinach, or Spinacia oleracea, is in the Amaranthaceae family, and a native of Asia. 

This plant has vitamins A, C, E, K, folate, and thiamin, the minerals iron, potassium, phosphorous, and magnesium, and the phytonutrients fiber, calcium, manganese, and lutein. It maintains eye health and red blood cell function, strengthens bones, regulates heart rate and blood pressure, and combats free radicals.

Mixed Salad Lettuce: They contain high amounts of vitamins A, B6, C, E, K, and folate, the mineral iron, and contain the phytonutrients beta-carotene, omega-3, omega-6, fiber, and calcium. They also help lower cholesterol, have anti-inflammatory properties, and the more red a leaf is, the more antioxidants it has.

This dark leaf is high in vitamins A, C, K, folic acid, and thiamin, the minerals iron, potassium, and the phytonutrients calcium, lutein, carotenoids, manganese, copper, and fiber. Kale helps lower cholesterol and the risk of cancer. It detoxes the body, prevents bone loss, has anti-inflammatory properties, and it helps with eyesight, the immune system, flexibility, hydration, and your metabolism. Per calorie, kale has more iron than beef, more calcium than milk, and ten times more vitamin C than spinach.

Chard: Beta vulgaris, also belongs to the Amaranthaceae family and is native to the Mediterranean. The leaf has a similar flavor, shape, and nutritional value to spinach, and chard is actually called spinach in South Africa and Australia.

Rainbow chard contains vitamins A, C, E, K, folate, and thiamin, the minerals iron, potassium, and phosphorus, and contains the phytonutrients fiber, choline, calcium. It helps maintain connective tissue, regulate heart rate, blood pressure and sugar levels, prevents anemia, and boosts immunity.

    Wild Roquette: Arugula, or Eruca sativa, is a member of the Cruciferae family, along with horseradish and wasabi, hence that delicious peppery taste.

It’s high in antioxidants, builds healthy bones, prevents arthritis and anemia, lowers LDL cholesterol, battles the onset of heart disease, and protects against cancerous growths.

    Coriander ( cilantro): The herb is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that help regulate heart rate and blood pressure. Iron is essential for red blood cell production. The human body uses manganese as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase.

    It is also rich in many vital vitamins, including folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin-A, beta carotene, vitamin-C, which are essential for optimum health. Vitamin-C is a powerful natural antioxidant. 100 g of cilantro leaves provide 30% of daily recommended levels of vitamin-C.

    Basil: Basil is a highly fragrant plant whose leaves are used as a seasoning herb for many different types of foods. Basil has become one of the most recognizable herbs ever since pesto, the mixture of basil, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese, has become popular.

    Fresh basil contains powerful anitoxidants, has been linked to studies which suggest it contains phytochemicals which may be able to naturally help prevent cancer! 

    It is also an anti-inflammatory herb - inflammation has become a widespread issue seen today and is the root cause of nearly every chronic disease. Consuming foods to cool inflammation is essential for optimal health. The essential oils in basil are what’s responsible for helping to beat inflammation.

    Storage: Fresh basil should be stored in the refrigerator wrapped in a slightly damp paper towel. It may also be frozen, either whole or chopped, in airtight containers. Alternatively, you can freeze the basil in ice cube trays covered with either water or stock that can be added when preparing soups or stews. Dried basil should be kept in a tightly sealed glass container in a cool, dark and dry place where it will keep fresh for about six months.

    Mint: A calming and soothing herb that has been used for thousands of years to aid with upset stomach or indigestion. Mint is thought to increase bile secretion and encourage bile flow, which helps to speed and easedigestion (and which may also support healthy cholesterol levels).

    Mint plants contain an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent called rosmarinic acid. This has been studied for its effectiveness in relieving seasonal allergy symptoms, revealing a promising natural treatment.

    Two tablespoons of fresh peppermint provides 2 calories, 0.12 grams of protein, 0.48 grams carbohydrates, 0.03 grams of fat and 0.30 grams of fiber. Mint contains small amounts of potassiummagnesiumcalcium, phosphorus, vitamin C, iron and vitamin A.

    Phenols and other phytonutrients in bok choy represent what is now known to be a full spectrum of over 70 antioxidants in this cruciferous vegetable. The antioxidant richness of bok choy partly explains ongoing investigation of bok choy in relationship to cancer prevention since prevention and reduction of oxidative stress has often been linked to decreased cancer risk.
