Greens are highly nutritious and offer a variety of health benefits. They are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and can minimize risks of developing certain diseases. Studies concluded that those who eat eight or more servings of fruits and vegetables daily, particularly green-leafy vegetables, are 30 percent less likely to have a stroke or heart attack
You can buy collards greens at grocery stores, farmers markets, or already bagged and cut. However you buy them always pick bunches with quality leaves. The leaves should be deep green, unwilted and, firm. The leaves should not show signs of yellowing/browning
Clean your greens thoroughly before cooking them. Give them a good washing/rinsing since this vegetable tends to collect soil on its leaves and stems.  Before rinsing, separate the leaves (with stem attached). Cleaned the leaves by dipped them several times into lukewarm water until all soil is removed. Also rinse your leaves individually under running water to clean away the dirt
 For the large and mature leaves, take each leaf and fold lengthwise at the stem. Tear the tough portion of the stem away from the leaf and discharge.  If you like, you can cut the stem away with a knife. Next, stack several leaves on top of each other and roll together. Using a cutting board and a sharp knife, slice the leaves into 1/2 inch thick piece - there you have it
