    Spinach, bok choy, red and green chard

    I've been eating spinach salads quite frequently.

    I've recently bought a mixed bag of spinach, bok choy, red and green chard. I bought it for the verity so I could get different nutrients than just the spinach.

    Anyone familiar with the bok choy or chard?

    It said power greens but that could also be for sales purposes.



    Just wondering if I would be better off with the spinach by itself.

    Taste the same to me, like the salad dressing. LOL

    Chard & bok choy are great,but I usually steam or saute mine with garlic then add cider vinegar.

    Bok choy and chard are very similar to spinach as far as nutritional value high in potassium Iron vitamin A and C as well as calcium....The "PowerGreen" combo accounts for 70% of your daily dose of A and C....and I eat them raw as well.......ha..

    Ya, it says right on the bag it's for cooking. I use no cal salad dressing and that's what it tastes like, the dressing

    I hate hot dogs.

    Now, if you said you were eating a bag of Reese's, I would be mad

    I like the green leafy veggies, it keeps me shittin' like a champ

    I had this up on another board and someone said kale is good as well.

    I might buy a bag to mix in with it.

    Bok choy/pak choy is often boiled or stir fried (my wifes family eat it all the time as they are Chinese), but I have eaten it raw and it's okay.

    Kale is awesome, I usually eat that raw as well as adding it into my shakes.

    Cool. Glad you responded. I almost named the thread "Question for MF". LOL

    I wasn't sure I would get a big response on this one.

    Thanks to everyone else as well.

    I like making Kale soup with chicken in the Fall/Winter. Most of my green I eat cooked except for spinach in salad.

    That's funny shit since I bought the same pink bag last week and did not realize it said it was for cooking. So I washed it like 10 times and then made the salad I was making.

    Steamed baby bok choy if you can find them. I used to get them from a farmers market, they are so freaking good!
