 Here are the bestfresh produce' foods  to feed your Bearded dragon

# 1 - Collard Greens 

Collards are good sources of vitamin C and soluble fiber, and contain multiple nutrients with potent anticancer properties, such as diindolylmethane and sulforaphane,  are also a high source of vitamin K (the clotting vitamin).  Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley have recently discovered that 3,3'-diindolylmethane in Brassica vegetables such as collard greens is a potent modulator of the innate immune response system with potent antiviral, antibacterial and anticancer activity.  

Tear  the leaves into small pieces and watch your Bearded dragon devour them. (Information from: Wikipedia.org)

# 2 - Dandelions 

Nutritionally packed with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as a good source of Calcium.  Feed the leaves and the flowers to your dragon but ONLY pick dandelions that you KNOW are pesticides-free for your Bearded Dragon's safety.  You can also find dandelion greens at your grocery store.

# 3 - Endive

A member of the daisy family, this plant is rich in Folate and vitamins A and K. 
Tear the leaves up first before feeding them to your Bearded dragon

# 4 - Carrots 

Are packed with minerals, antioxidants and beta carotine.  Do not chop them, finely grate them in order that your Bearded dragon may be able to fully digest them.  Many dragons eagerly eat carrots due to their sweetness, but limit this food item to once or twice a week.

# 5 - Bok Choy 

Also known as 'Chinese Cabbage', very high in vitamin A.
Tear into small pieces before feeding your Bearded dragon.

# 6 - Turnip Greens 

Very high in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as Folate and Lutein, and a good amount of Calcium.    
Feed the greens only, not the turnip root.

# 7 - Alfalfa Sprouts 

A member of the pea family, these are high in Protein, Calcium and other minerals, vitamins in the B group, vitamins C, D, E, and K.  These may be more difficult for your Bearded Dragon to swallow so chop them and mix a little bit of the alfalfa sprouts with other greens to help your dragon in swallowing them all together.

# 8 - Strawberries 

Excellent source of vitamin C and flavonoids, very low in saturated fats, a good source of folate and potassium, and a very good source of dietary fiber and manganese.  A bit expensive when out of season but Bearded dragons will feast on them.

# 9 - Figs 

Dried to the consistency of a prune, figs are sweet and nutritious as they provide dietary fiber, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, manganese and vitamin B6.   Cut them up well before feeding to your adult Bearded dragon -- juvenile dragons may have problems digesting the seeds so save this treat for adult dragons.

# 10 - Blueberries 

A good source of vitamin K and antioxidants.  Make sure you cut the blueberries in half in order to aid in your Bearded Dragon's digestion and nutrient absorption.

# 11 - Tomatoes 
Loaded with vitamin A and lycopene, tomatoes will help complement your dragons' diet and provide that additional variety which is essential to any Bearded Dragon's health and well being. NEVER FEED ANY OF THE GREEN PART of the tomato plant to your dragon OR TO ANY INSECT the dragon will eat since tomato plant leaves and stems are extremely toxic to Bearded Dragons.
