MILWAUKEE -- Are you ready to spring into greens? We are entering peak season for fresh and flavorful produce -- which is why Meghan Sedivy with Fresh Thyme joins Real Milwaukee. She shows us how to incorporate healthy salads into your diet.
Start with leafy greens.
Dark leafy greens are a good source of vitamins and minerals including:
• Vitamins K, C and A
1 cup of cooked spinach has as much calcium as one glass of milk.
Try a combination of greens to enhance flavor -- spinach, romaine, arugula, kale.
If salad is your main meal -- shoot for four cups of greens, two cups for side salads.
