Mel Ziegler, an Advocare Nutritional Advisor, a guest contributor has a new recipe for collard greens that is sure to entice even your biggest skeptics.


  • 1/3 cup coconut milk (either homemade or additive-free)
  • 1 large bunch collards (de-stemmed and chopped)
  • 3-4 shallots sliced thinly
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2-1 Tsp turmeric
  • Sea Salt, Pepper to taste
