A Message from John Salley
As a four-time NBA champion with the Detroit Pistons, the Chicago Bulls, and the Los Angeles Lakers, I know a thing or two about staying on top of my game. For me, that means embracing a true vegetarian diet (no dairy, no egg products) to keep my body energized and healthy. Succeeding as a champion in the game of life takes plenty of nutritious fuel for the mind and body. Grab this opportunity with both hands-your health and happiness depends on it.
Susan Says: Cooking greens is easy, and the nutrients are abundant. Some greens have tougher stems- collards, kale, and chard-and it may be preferable to remove them before cooking. Others have stems that cook tender: spinach, watercress, and turnip greens. Adding a little lemon juice or vinegar to your cooked greens makes some of the nutrients even more bioavailable.
