At just one calorie per leaf endives pack a bunch of vitamins, minerals and crunch. I absolutely love endives because they make a great replacement for chips and crackers. Do you guys remember when Tostitos came out with scoops (yes- I’m a 90’s child – and yes, it was a genius invention back then). Well – Endives are basically the perfect alternative to those scoops. You can literally stuff these chicory family leafs with hummus, guacamole or any of your favorite dips- and enjoy it without worrying about the extra basically empty calories in chips/crackers.
More reasons to try endives:
1.They are super delicious grilled or raw.
2.Consuming endives reduces the risk of getting ovarian cancer
3.Rich in vitamin A, folate and potassium
4.They have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial benefits.
