Also known as ‘rocket,’ arugula contains more nitrates than almost any other food. Although there’s no set amount of nitrates that one should have in a day, arugula comes in at more than 250 milligrams/100 grams. Research suggests that dietary nitrates are 100% bioavailable, so eating arugula before a tough workout is one of your best chances to maximize your strength. Add ½ cup arugula to your pre-workout smoothie or sub half the greens in your salad for arugula.
