5 Spring Greens You’re Probably Not Eating, But Should Be

Turn over a new leaf! Toss in these special lettuces for a health and flavor upgrade.

Green tango

It tastes mild, with a slight tang similar to endive’s—without the bitterness. The frilly edges of green tango provide nice texture in salads. It’s also good on sandwiches and as decoration.
Nutrition perks: Full of vitamins A and C and an excellent source of iron.

Baby romaine

These little leaves taste just like grown-up romaine, but even sweeter and more tender. They’re great in salads, wraps, and pita sandwiches.
Nutrition perks: Packed with vitamins A and K, plus folate and iron.

Mache

Mache is delicate, fairly sweet and mild, with a slight crispness. The tender leaves work best in salads that are lightly dressed.
Nutrition perks: High in vitamins A and C, as well as calcium and iron.

Tatsoi

The leaves are a bit peppery or mustardy; the crunchy stems are mild. Use the leaves for salads; slice the stems and serve with dip; or throw the whole thing into a stir-fry.
Nutrition perks: Boasts vitamin K and potassium.

Frisee

Frisee has an edgy flavor with a somewhat bitter finish. Toss with a warm dressing to soften it a bit in salads. You can also add it to sandwiches.
Nutrition perks: Rich in vitamins A and K, and contains iron and folate.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Our patients, employees and family are our top priority at Long Island Spine Specialists, P.C.

We ask you to not visit any of our locations if you have symptoms such as fever, sneezing, coughing and possible shortness of breath.

Please cancel your appointment and re-schedule once you are feeling better and are no longer suffering with symptoms.

Only non-symptomatic patients will be seen. No exceptions.

Accompanying family members – including children – are asked to remain in the waiting area and will not be allowed to enter the exam rooms.

During this time of high concern regarding the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are taking extra precautions to maintain the highest possible standards of safety and cleanliness. Please be advised that we are carefully following recommendations from both the CDC and WHO and are here to help guide you through this time if needed.

Some steps we are taking to keeping safe:

  2. Rest assured that hand washing is strictly followed. Hand sanitizer is available to all staff and patients.
  3. Additionally, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the coronavirus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from your return date. We will gladly accommodate your needs to reschedule. At that time, a telehealth interface can be arranged if necessary.
