Mustard greens for health

Here it is; I just harvested the last of the mustard greens from our garden for tonight’s Casa Korb bowl. 💚

Over the next months, we’ll sprout mustard seeds to continue to get all the wonderful benefits of this plant. 🌱💪

Did you know?
“Eating mustard greens in both raw and cooked forms has health benefits. They are rich in the chlorophyll molecule, which may inhibit the body’s uptake of carcinogens and reduce DNA damage of cells. In addition, at least two or more servings of green vegetables like mustard greens are associated with decreased facial wrinkling.

All raw cruciferous vegetables contain the myrosinase enzyme needed for the production of the anti-cancer compound called sulforaphane. This enzyme is destroyed by heat during the cooking process. By adding some raw mustard greens or sprinkling ¼ teaspoon of mustard powder onto cooked cruciferous vegetables, a natural source of the myrosinase enzyme is re-introduced and allows for sulforaphane production. Steamed mustard greens improve bile acid binding, which is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer.”
