Quick health tip: How to make your salad really count


Eating a salad for lunch? Here’s how to make your good decision into a great one: Choose nutrient-rich greens.

Fill your plate with lettuce mixes that include power house greens such as spinach, kale, arugula, green leaf, red leaf, chard, radicchio, mizuna, or romaine. These provide a ridiculous amount of vitamins (specifically A and K) and cancer-fighting phytochemicals. Sorry iceberg lovers, all you get with that is a large dose of water. Make the simple switch.

Bonus tip: Vinaigrette dressings are a great source of vitamin E
