My go to greens that I always have on hand are kale, spinach, and either red leaf or romaine lettuce. I make a lot of green juices and salads with them. Lately I’ve been seeing new leafy greens that I’ve never seen before, like dandelion greens and watercress.
The farmer vendors explained that watercress is comparable to spinach and arugula with a bit of spice. It’s packed with a ton of vitamins and ranks at the top of the list of best greens to eat surpassing kale by a long haul.
Dandelion greens don’t get as much recognition as they should for what they bring to the table. It’s incredibly high in calcium, iron, and protein and loaded with antioxidants.
Sorry kale and spinach, you’re both really great, but I think you might be getting replaced.
