hi, water cress and rocket are ideal, but i wouldnt advise feeding spinach as a staple, maybe feed it once or twce a week, but its not an every day thing.

Cress and rocket are fine (tear the leaves into smaller pieces if they're too big for the beardie to easily eat - cutting with a knife may make them go brown faster).

Spinach I'd use very little of - although it does have a fair amount of calcium, it is also high in oxalates, which 'bind' the calcium so it is not as accessible or digestible for the beardie.
