I saw Tyler say in a post he eats 'heavy greens' as part of his nutrition routine.

What vegetables are considered heavy greens?

I'm guessing cabbage but can't think of any others? Stuff like leak I'd say is medium.

I wanna add some more into my diet so want some ideas of what to buy.

Heavy greens is an abstract term but i'm pretty sure they are Cruciferous vegetables...of these my favorite is Kale. I eat it everyday.

LOL I meant "heavy on the greens".

Brocolli, spinach, kale, swiss chard, are good examples.  All veggies are usually pretty damned good for your health and clarity of thought.

 And you can juice the vegetables to get the nutrients if you don't have time to eat it regularly.

I'm a huge fan of spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Swiss chard, onions, and peppers. Idealy, you should eat only in season vegetables to create a natural rotation. You can actually down-regulate your thyroid from eating excessive cruciferious veggies. BUT I doubt anyone here would end up doing that. The point is to reap the most benefits, hit up a farmer's market and get veggies that are in season.
