I am having a hard time getting enough vegetables in my diet because I am on Warfarin and I am only allowed 1 C. of green vegetables a week. I am forced to eat corn, cauliflower, and carrots whick I love but it gets very tiresome. Do you have any suggestions?

In general, green leafy vegetables and some vegetable oils (soybean, cottonseed, canola, and olive) are major contributors of dietary vitamin K. Search the USDA food composition database or view a list of foods containing a specific nutrient to determine the amount of vitamin K in all foods. As for eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, our Fruit & Veggie Nutrition Database has a list of over 100 fruit and vegetables to try in our 1,000+ healthy recipe database! Try starting with one new fruit or vegetable (as long as they are not high in vitamin K) each week!
