Default salad bags from tesco/sainsburys

Hi

Is there any mixed salad bags available from tesco or sainsburys that only contains salad that beardies that eat.

ie is there any bags that you dont have to sort through and remove certain types of leaves.

Thanks

Matt

Hi yes I believe the 'crispy' flourette brand is an all in one bag, must be the crispy one though! And I don't think I spelt flourette right either! Green bag and its called something like that anyway! Hope this helps :-/

From everything I've read, it's only spinach and iceberg lettuce you should avoid. Is this correct? I've been using the tender leaf salad from Asda :-/ Everywhere mentions collard greens but does anyone have any idea where you can find these??? Mustard greens also. Can't find anything like this in any supermarket so having to make do with lettuce

I must admit i've never seen collard greens in supermarkets as far as I know and I work in one!!!

Collard shares the same botanical name as Kale and is fairly similar so I imagine Kale would be a decent substitute? Not as good but if its all you can find then use that.

I would suggest going to a garden centre and asking them as they may have or be able to source a plant or two for you.

Iceberg is a no-no as is spinach. Collards are part of the cabbage family and I imagine cabbage and broccoli etc would be ok too!

thats fine, floretti is a good choice as it is washed in spring water, where as a lot of brands use bleach if a mix has a little iceburg in it dont worry, its not the devils spawn it simply has very little nutritional value but on the plus side its full of water so good for re hydration, how ever too much can lead to loose poos.
Avoid spinach as it acts as a calcium binder

All the leafy greens are ok in moderation. Oxalates present in cabbage, kale etc can cause calcium binding too, but they can be given occasionally eg. Once a week.

I used to give mine chicory greens but they don't seem to sell them anymore...could be a seasonal issue.

I also give mine watercress, mustard/salad cress (in the tubs, 25p each), okra, squash, parsnip and carrot (grated) and rocket salad. Bit of fruit as a treat too. Come Springtime mine will mainly be on dandelion leaves and flowers and hawkbit leaves. Just wash them well before offering them up.

The key is variety with beardies.

^ Agree. Nothing wrong with lettuce and spinach in moderation.
