cold night for hot soup

Sunday Night

Food: Greens and Grains Soup (recipe below)
Body: A 10-minute walk to the local market, despite the rain
Mind: Cooking to Frank Sinatra while talking to my grandmother on the phone

It's the first truly cold night here in New York City, with temperatures creeping into the upper 40s.  What better excuse to make an incredibly nutrient-dense and satisfying soup!  I cranked up old jazz music and Sinatra and began happily chopping away.  I went for collard greens, one of the most highly-nutritious vegetables out there in terms of nutrition-per-calorie.  In just 3.5 ounces of the stuff, it has over 20% of your daily value of calcium, as well as nearly 600% your daily value of vitamin K! The best news?  It made enough soup to have leftovers for the next several days!  Give it a try, it's incredible!

Nutritional Highlights for 2 cup serving: 516% daily value vitamin A, 130% daily value vitamin C, 11 grams fiber, 55% daily value calcium, 1100% daily value vitamin K
