I'm surprised arugula is so far down, below leaf lettuce even.

/love arugula salad, and it's cheap at Trader Joe's.

I haven't read the article, but I'm gonna guess either quinoa or dry beans.

I can't imagine eating enough watercress to have an impact on my overall health.

You know what else is nutrient dense? My multi-vitamin.
 
2014-06-06 12:27:47 PM
That's really useful information, considering most people eat meals consisting of only one thing.

doubled99: Funny to see sweet potatoes second from last considering last year's study saying it was far and away the #1 most nutritious vegetable


I think it mostly depends on how you're measuring stuff out.  They did everything using 100g (~3.5oz) of each vegetable, which is a lot of watercress, but not much sweet potato.  If you did it per volume, you might get different results.
  What's interesting about sweet potatoes is that baking them (and baking  specifically) actually changes the nutrient profile; it reduces the starch, folate, and a couple of other nutrients, while increasing just about all of the vitamins.
    Now I'm wondering if "baking" in the microwave has the same effect because my daughter loves sweet potatoes and has one just about every day.

You're missing out if you don't eat much Bok Choi.  Excellent cut up in scrambled eggs, great over rice and I also enjoy it as a side with steak.  You need to get the "small" or "green" bok choi (小白菜 ) which is the best.  Peel all of it off the stem and stir fry in a bit of oil with diced onion and ginger.  Very very good and takes ~2 minutes to prepare.  I ordered it with nearly every meal when I lived in China.

The bigger kind with the big leaves is good too but has less of the leafy green part and is more white.  Can be cooked the same way but I don't like it nearly as much as the small bok choi.  To each their own though, both are very good for you.

/"Bok Choi" really is a terrible name for it
//Damn Cantonese

i've never had watercress. i don't even know if it can be purchased at the stores where i shop.
i like broccoli, carrots, beans, peas...if i don't get enough vegetable nutrition from those, i don't get enough vegetable nutrition period.
 
2014-06-06 12:40:02 PM
Look, if it's green, leafy, and not loaded with deadly poisons, it's better for you than any other thing you're thinking of eating.

I still am flabbergasted that ICEBERG LETTUCE tops sweet potatoes. WTH.

Uriel: LazyMedia: What the frack is "Chinese cabbage?" Napa cabbage? Bok Choy?

Yes.


I wish they would have been more specific, or mentioned if both are about the same. I eat a lot of bok choy and yu choy (which I wish they also would have included here). Doesn't matter, I'll continue to eat a lot of what I already eat.

And Chinese cabbage is Napa cabbage, is it not? Quite light in color?

What happened to "stick with the darkest and most intense colored vegetables" mantra?

Every list like this you see will be different. There are too many variables
to that get consistent results. The freshness of the food, where when and how it was grown, etc. Best bet is to eat what's in season locally to avoid stuff that's spent the last week in a dark shipping container.

again, it's the sample size. 100g of lettuce is a lot of friggin lettuce. 100g of sweet potato is like 2 bites
