Greens That Boost Nutrition

Have you head of arugula?

It is a green, leafy vegetable that has more nutrients (such as beta-carotene and Vitamin C) than iceberg lettuce.  It also has about nine times more calcium. 

When making salads remember to choose a variety of leafy greens, such as arugula, romaine, and chicory.  Using these greens in salads and on sandwiches gives you more nutrition.  And, remember to always wash produce before eating.
