I prefer arugula to spinach. I could eat just about anything on arugula, lightly tossed with olive oil and squirt of lemon.

For lunch sometimes, I take whatever's left over from last night's dinner: fish, chicken, meat loaf ... and have it on arugula, lettuce or a mixture of the two.

I'll stick with Romaine lettuce. Spinach and all that stuff is too bitter for my taste.

Fortunately, when I was growing up, my mother didn't like spinach, so she never served it.  ;D

Not a big fan of iceberg lettuce....I've heard it has no nutritional value to it.

I do like romaine, and will eat it in a caesar salad.  Spring mix is good too.

My favorite lettuce is Boston butter. I also like red leaf, spring mix and baby romaine. I believe that as a rule of thumb, the darker the leaves, the more nutrients.

It's my understanding that all dark green vegetables are supposed to be especially good for you.

Yes, I think dark color of any vegetable or fruit -- green, orange, red, purple, etc. -- can be an indicator of its nutritiousness. But at the same time, cauliflower and cabbage are nutritious, too.

I love Boston butter lettuce!!  And, I agree that arugula is very good too... I like that it has a really bold, peppery taste.

I also love that you can often find Boston butter lettuce in the grocery store with the roots still on, so it lasts longer.  That's often my problem with buying greens... they tend to start wilting before I have a chance to eat them a lot of the time.  But with the hydroponic type of butter lettuce I buy a little time.

Breakfast was a hard boiled egg, and some lime yogurt.

Lunch is spinach salad, lemon chicken and some corn casarole.  (leftovers from the other night).

not sure what dinner will be.

Tell you what, I find that greens keep for weeks for me in a good, old-fashioned Tupperware crisper!
