    Does a cup of cooked spinach really have 7 grams of fat? I find that hard to believe. Maybe 0.7?

    • Dave Barry

      The chart reads 7 grams of carbs/cup cooked, not fat (0.5g).

    Any suggestions for someone that has 4 main problems, Vascular, Heart, Kidneys and Diabetes, I need a diet that will fit all. I am having trouble finding one.

  • William Powers

    I love all kinds of greens, anyone ever try creases, water or dry land.

  • Chris Bechetti

    That is 7g of carbs not fat. The fat was .5. I love to make Kale & white beans.
