No Wonder - Collards Do Got 'Sugar'

Generally thinking that green vegetables were all 'free' diabetic exchanges, from back in my diabetes education days of 1996, that is, I thought broccoli and collards had about the same carb content as lettuce, I was surprised to sense my raw collards were raising my sugar. Finally upon looking it up, sure enough, collards have 12 g per cup compared to 4 g/C for broccoli and 1 or 2 g/C for lettuces. Awesome Collards! Just proves it's real food, not just lettucey stuff.
