peppery taste. In many cases, people describe the salad green

spinach is very low in calories and also contains, again like most salad greens, a high level of vitamin C and vitamin A. It's also high in fiber and high in sulfurane, which is a nutrient that is known to have very protective anti-cancer properties.

Arugula can be a slightly strong flavor, much as any other
cruciferous vegetable. It is quite often difficult to convince a child to take in the vegetable, but when mixed into a smoothie in which a stronger flavored fruit is used, the taste becomes very palatable.
Arugula is a very healthful vegetable and it or another cruciferous
vegetable should be consumed at least twice a week.
