German Field Salad

Rapunzel, corn salad or lamb’s lettuce – no other variety has as many names as the popular field salad. And the name speaks for itself: It comes straight from the fields. This is a great leafy vegetable to include in your diet because it contains valuable nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C and folic acid as well as iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. But you shouldn’t enjoy this salad too often. It contains quite a lot of oxalic acid. This acid is considered a “calcium scavenger” because it binds the mineral and prevents it from being stored in bones and teeth.

Avocado

Avocados have increased in popularity in the US since the early 2000’s and are now a staple in many households. What many people may not know is that they are one of the most nutrient dense and healthy fruits! Not a vegetable, avocado is the only fruit that contains high levels of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. In addition, avocados contain high amounts of fiber, are a great source of vitamins C, K, B6, and are rich in magnesium, potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids. Although most of the calories are derived from fats, these are all healthy fats that the cells in your body need for essential metabolic processes.

Avocados are extremely versatile and can be used in many different dishes. Try them mashed on toast, blended into a pasta sauce, on top of a salad, or even in a creamy chocolate pudding. The possibilities are endless!
