Notes

Note: Combining butter and oil together when you want to saute over a medium-high heat and keep ingredients together works very well. It will also prevent burning.

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
