A lot of it depends on the greens you're using. Turnip, mustard and collard tend to have a "sharp" taste to them, and are often prepared by simmering in broth with ham and seasonings over a low heat. Heat 1-2 Tbsp butter/grease/ghee/coconut... (more)

Is the discomfort from gas or from constipation? Two different things. If you feel discomfort soon after you eat greens, it's probably gas. Constipation is more of a larger-picture problem relating to your diet overall. Lots of greens can... (more)

sauteed like spanich with garlic and/or shallots. Bacon fat- on my. Blasamic or a squeese of lemon on the dish. A braised leg of lamb or pig's foot are perfect sides.

4 slices of bacon chopped, cook in large frying pan until crisp. Add greens in bunches to wilt down. When all the greens are in add 2 TBSP vinegar (pref. raw) and two cups chicken broth. Simmer 15-20 mins. Salt to taste :)

The recipe I have for roasting beets has far more sugar than I realized. I need a new recipe. Preferably fast, easy, and picky-eater friendly. Bonus points for incorporating the greens. Any way to shred/slice them and then sautee?

Roast them in a little coconut oil, and when they're done toss them in fresh orange juice (blood oranges work wonderfully), a little orange zest, and salt and serve them on a bed of belgian endive with a sprinkling of walnuts.

If your meat is grass-fed and you're including organs from time to time, I don't think you really need anything else. No such thing as an essential fruit or vegetable in my opinion.
