Broccoli rabe

Besides boasting a 396 percent daily value of vitamin A, 270 percent of vitamin C, and an impressive 1,398 percent daily value of antioxidant-rich vitamin K, broccoli raab also boasts 1,499 milligrams of potassium. This leafy green veggie is high in calcium and a string of other good things, including pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), good for breaking down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in the foods we eat to gain energy and rebuild tissue, muscles, and organs.
