This is a good question because the modern Sattvic diet contains leafy greens, while the ancient sattvic diet didn't.
Within the Hatha Yoga Pradipika it states:
61. Bitter, sour, saltish, green vegetables, fermented, oily, mixed with til seed, * seed, intoxicating liquors, fish, meat, curds, chhaasa pulses, plums, oil-cake, asaftida (hinga), garlic, onion, etc., should not be eaten.
No ancient yogis are around to help us here, but greens create a lot of vitamin K, which is good except that too much vitamin K makes blood clots. If one is taking blood thinner medication leafy greens must be eaten in moderation. The ancients may have known more than we think.
