Arugula is a very nutritious leafy green vegetable with an unusual spicy flavor. Like other greens, arugula is most nutritious when eaten raw and should be juiced or well-blended for optimal nutrient digestion and assimilation. Add it to a salad for a spicy kick.
Arugula can be found growing wild all over North America. Wild grown arugula is more nutritious and mineral-dense than store-bought arugula. Younger leaves are more tender and less spicy.
