You can eat greens: While on Lovenox (enoxaparin) you can eat as is your usual diet. Contrary to warfarin, Lovenox (enoxaparin) is not affected by eating food that is rich in vitamin K. Although you can eat greens with warfarin as well, management of therapeutic target is difficult, because of fluctuation in peoples intake of vitamin K rich foods.

None: Unlike coumadin, (warfarin) another blood thinner with lots of food restrictions, there are no foods that interact with lovenox and need to be avoided.
