Potato Greens Restores a Mother’s Energy

Potato greens always seems to remind me of a story I heard from a Mother of 2. This mother became ill while out running errands with her 4 year in one hand & 7  months in another hand. She started thinking.  Should I go to the hospital or go home? She decided to called a Uber & return home. She said to herself, maybe this will pass.  So I am going to make a few adjustments to my diet and if I still continue to feel sick. Then I will go in to see a doctor.

After a few days of eating potato greens, she starting feeling better.  Maybe the fact the Potato Greens is a good source of Protein, NiacinCalcium and Iron, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin CThiaminRiboflavin, Vitamin B6,FolateMagnesiumPhosphorusPotassium and Manganese helped her body recover. But that experience reminded her that she needs to take care of herself so that she can have the energy to take care of her kids.  PS, please use best judgement in deciding when to go into the hospital  or not & also consult your doctor about your symptoms.
