Skip the bread and wrap your sandwich in lettuce for a fresher, brighter flavor. In fact, many people don’t realize the amazing variety of rich nutrients found in romaine and other leaf lettuces.
Is it really true you can add an entire head of romaine to a fruit smoothie without changing the taste? Some swear it’s a fact. Just to be sure, add enough fruit.
Try the romaine with 2-3 bananas, a mango, a half cup of blueberries and a tablespoon of flaxseed. Blend it all up to make the real breakfast of champions. Forget the fish oil. A head of romaine gives you 44% RDA of heart-healthy Omega-3. Not to mention the rich array of energizing B vitamins and hydration.
Two more powerhouses of nutrition? Spinach and kale make fantastic soup ingredients when steamed or sauteed.
And if you’re looking for the ultimate salad, try watercress. Or kick it up a notch with peppery arugula. Throw some peas, radishes and asparagus into your meals to enrich your body and add to your kitchen talent.
These are just a few of the many springtime greens guaranteed to energize.
