A Delicious Ways to Cook Dark Leafy Greens

beets 1

I consider dark leafy greens the healthiest food on the planet and the easiest way to “feel” the power of healthy eating. Make it a dietary dictum to eat some form of dark leafy greens (raw or cooked) every day.

Sautéed Beet Greens

Serves 2-3

Don’t waste the greens on your fresh beets – saute them with this easy recipe!


  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Tops of a bunch of beets, large stems removed and greens and small stems chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 anchovy, optional


Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add greens, garlic, and anchovy (if using) and sauté stirring occasionally until greens are tender, about 10 minutes. If necessary add a splash of water to help steam and not scorch. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Eat your greens and get your sleep! Quality sleep is paramount for optimal health. Join my latest e-course, SLEEP BETTER FOREVER, on July 13th.
