Author's Note: "The old-fashioned way to prepare greens relies upon a lot
of fatty meat," Chitwood says. "We all know that too much animal fat leads
to weight gain and increased LDL cholesterol, and can cause increases in
blood sugar and blood pressure." If you want more of a meat taste to these
greens, she says, use leftover roast turkey or chicken, or roast lean pork,
but count the meat as your protein.

Place greens in boiling water in a medium saucepan. Add salt. Chop bacon
and add it to the greens and simmer, uncovered, over low heat for 30

times before serving hot.
