chia?

kale?

RB said...

I'm stumped. I know its not Chinese Cabbage (bok choy) or seaweed (kelp) although they both look like healthy foods. I personally eat chia but I know that not right.

Eating a cheesesteak with mushrooms and fried onions, washed down with a can of beer, off the hood of your car on a hot, muggy Friday night in Philadelphia. Am I close?

Purslane?

Spinach? Parsley? Beet greens?

I don't think any of those quite fit, but I'm pretty sure it's a green (all that K).

But I'm personally pulling for Ronald's answer.

I was going to say fish but the vitamin C throws me off.

Anything eaten off the hood of a car has more fiber!

Bix said...

These are good guesses and probably foods I should eat more of. But the one I was looking up here was spinach.

I agree with tardytina, there's probably a lot of fiber to be had on the hood of a car. That buggy exoskeleton stuff.

Ronald, you make me laugh.
