Pick The Healthiest Salad Greens!

| Filed under: FoodHealth

Spinach Rulez

If you're doing it right (and by that we mean making the wisest choices), you'll find that a huge helping of leafy greens is just 10 calories per cup, and is an incredible source of vitamins A, C, K, and folate, among other essential nutrients.

So it's in your best interest that you're making the right choices!

Iceberg lettuce sucks, so, you should probably skip that. It's 96% water.

It's not bad for you, but you aren't getting anything good from it either. Spinach is the way to go!

It has nearly twice the recommended daily value of vitamin K, half the recommended value of vitamin A, and lots of calcium and iron.

If you're missing the crunch of Iceberg, we say grab some Romaine — it has a large dose of vitamin A and other nutrients.

Red leaf lettuce has about 4 calories per cup, with nearly half of the daily recommended dose of vitamins A and K.

Arugula has many nutrients and phytochemicals, which may inhibit the development of certain cancers.

Plus, you could just straight up mix them all!

All in all, do yourself a favor and skip the Iceberg — we all know the Titanic wish it had.
