This peppery-tasting veggie is perfect to add to your summer salads and more. "Arugula is a flavorful, nutrient-dense leafy green to enjoy all summer long," says Emily Wunder, RD, a dietitian in Nutley, NJ. "With only 10 calories for two cups, arugula can be a great base to all your summer salads, or you can add it to a sandwich." Arugula provides an excellent amount of vitamin K, too. "Women need vitamin K for bone density to help prevent osteoporosis," says Wunder. Enjoy the power green in a salad with strawberries or a salad with prosciutto, pear & Parmasean.
