Also, I have learned that you do not have to necessarily avoid foods with Vitamin K while you're on an anticoagulant therapy, you just have to consume a consistent amount of it. It may be a good idea to discuss your diet with your physician and possibly increase your dosage to compensate for your consumption of Vitamin K.
Hope that helps!

I am joining this list as of yesterday, I am a warfarin baby. Until I build it up, I am on clexane shots. For no apparent reason to the medical profession, I got Thromboplebitis in a varicose vein in my calf, leading to DVT and noticed my running was crap. CT scan and chest xray later, I have blood clot on my posterior right lung, YAY.
Six months and we will see how I go. I was told to not eat massive amounts of Vitamin K veg as in no cabbage soup diets, no only eating broccoli as my only veg of choice, just regular amounts with other veg.
So I am seeing how I go Whole30

The Vitamin K messes with your warfarin dose (makes you clot more) so altering it up or down may mean you need to alter your warfarin dose to match and your doctor may not want to increase your dose. Some doctors will monitor you and take daily blood tests so you can add in more Vitamin K and adjust the dose accordingly. If you can't take tests daily, be careful when making changes as it can change very rapidly.
Dark green veggies (spinach, kale, cabbage, broccoli) are usually pretty high in Vitamin K, but high amounts of things like lettuce can do it too. Some non-green things have surprising levels of Vitamin K.
Some veggies come in other colours, like white and yellow zucchini.
I'd review this content with your doctor for accuracy, but this page has lots of info:
