Notes

 Arugula is an ancient green leafy vegetable. There are various arugula recipes that you can make. It is a very good in salads. You can also serve it cooked green just like spinach. It however has a stronger flavor. It is also tougher.

It is rich in Vitamin K which is known to promote bone density and facilitate muscle regeneration. Try growing some in your backyard.

 It is a unique vegetable to incorporate into your diet regularly if you are after losing weight in a healthier way .It helps to cut down the calories and keeps the nutrition up.

A tasty arugula dish starts from the point of purchase. When you want to buy these vegetables, always go for the fresh arugula. The leaves should be dark green .Do not buy if the leaves are yellow, wilted or damaged.

 If you want to keep your body healthy naturally, eat Arugula and you will never suffer any nutrient deficiencies. Add arugula leaves to your smoothies or salads to ensure that you are eating it regularly.

Good feta contains only sheep's milk, rennet, and salt. A few have goat milk. If it contains anything else other than these, then it is not feta. Otherwise, you will end up with poor feta with a sour taste, bad odor, and not so pleasant aftertaste. When you go to buy cheese, always ask for samples to taste. Fetas are of 3 types depending on the texture you want. They also come in the different aroma, salty, spicy, or mild depending on the area and type of container the feta is matured.

Feta should be white. Yellowish ones are not ideal and have therefore been exposed to air. It should be tangy with a rich aroma. It should not have a bitter, sour, rancid or chalky, taste. If it is good, it should have a few tiny holes on the surface.

 Buying watermelon may be quite a challenge to many people. While at the grocery store or at the farmers market, you have to be careful. Whichever size you want, pick it up. A good melon feels heavy for its size. When you tap the underbelly, if it’s ripe it gives a hollow sound. If it sound dull, it indicates an overripe or under ripe melon.

Watermelon and feta salad is easy to fix. Add all the ingredients including your delicious arugula leaves. Toss and serve it chilled. The salad is as sweet and appetizing as it appears. It is equally nutritious.
