  • Toss orange or grapefruit slices in a salad with nuts and dried cranberries.

    d) Dark green leafy vegetables

    All of the following are relatively high in vitamin K, which interacts with warfarin. Those who take warfarin should aim to eat a similar amount of vitamin K each day. The highest amount of vitamin K is found in green and leafy vegetables such as those listed here. It is important to try to keep the amount of vitamin K you eat consistently.

      Greens like collard greens, kale, and Swiss chard, are at their best in cool weather like spring and fall. Here’s how you can make the most out of these greens. 
      • Use tender greens in a salad.
      • Steam the greens and add to a sandwich, omelet or casserole.
      • Throw into a soup or pasta or sauce.

        e) Lettuce
      Lettuce comes in many varieties — the darker the leaf, the more vitamin K. Pile lettuce on your sandwich. Try lettuce in the following ways -

        • Throw your favorite veggies on top of a bed of lettuce and add your favorite vinaigrette.
        • Roll roasted turkey slices (compare labels to find low-sodium options) and low-fat cheese in lettuce leaves and fasten with a toothpick.
        Top a bed of lettuce with tuna or chicken salad.
