8. Parsley

Known as a digestive aid and breath freshener, parsley is very high in vitamins K, C, and A.

Lettuce whose leaves grow as a single loose stalk rather than a tight ball, leaf lettuce is an excellent source of vitamin A, potassium, and fiber.

5. Spinach

Long heralded as a superfood, spinach is high in magnesium, iron, folate, and vitamins A, B2, C, and K.
