Healthy Spring Salads
Salads and leafy vegetables are perhaps the most potent superfood on the planet. They are also the most ignored and avoided as well. If you consider the powerful dose of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients that we get from spinach, kale, chard, collards, dandelion and other greens, it’s a wonder we can live without them!
Leafy green vegetables have more nutrition per calorie than any other food. Greens make up a significant source vitamins A, C, E and K as well as several B vitamins. They are rich sources of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium. They are rich in fiber, extremely low in fat and carbohydrates and provide an excellent source of protein.
How much green should you eat? The USDA food pyramid suggests a minimum of three servings of leafy greens per week.
