Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for sending the query.

Some green veggies contain vitamin K which can lower the therapeutic level of Coumadin.

If you eat a consistent amount of green veggies then your doctor can adjust your dose of coumadin accordingly so you can enjoy the foods which you find satisfying.

Thanks again for sending the query.

Sincerely,
