Most fowl is lower calorie than beef or pork also. I use ground turkey a lot! I bought ground chicken yesterday - it looked pretty lean, chicken is lower in calories and cholesterol than beef (and I like it).
String beans - low in calories, high in fiber especially fresh.

spinach - from best homeremedies.com

"spinach are essential amino acids, iron, vitamin A and folic acid. It is one of the cheapest vegetables which supplies the same amount of protein as one gets from the same quantity of meat, fish, eggs and chicken."

per 100 grams:
73 mg calcium
21 mg phosphorous
10.9 mg iron
28 mg vitamin C
small amount of vitamin B complex
The site recommends adding some lemon juice as the contained vitamin C will aid the body in digesting the entire amount of iron.

More on the benefits of spinach from the same site:
"Natural Benefits and Curative Properties of Spinach
The leaves of spinach are demulcent or soothing agents, refrigerant or collants, diuretic and milk laxative

Constipation :- Spinach juice cleans the digestive tract by removing the accumulated waste there from. It nourishes the intestines and tones up their movements. It is, therefore, an excellent food remedy for constipation.
Anemia :- This vegetable is a valuable source of high grade iron. After its absorption in the system, the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells take place. It is thus highly beneficial building up the blood and in the prevention and treatment of anemia.
Acidosis :- Spinach is also a rich source of calcium and other alkaline elements which are essential for keeping the tissues clean and for preserving the alkalinity of the blood.It, therefore, helps prevent chronic diseases which thrive on the formation of too much acid in the system.
Night Blindness :- The spinach is particularly rich in vitamin A. It contains more vitamin A than most other green vegetables. This vitamin promotes growth and health, specially the health of the eyes. Lack of this vitamin may lead to night blindness. Spinach is thus an effective food remedy for the prevention and treatment or night blindness.
Tooth Disorders :- The spinach juice is effective in strengthening the gums and preventing and curing dental cavities. Chewing raw spinach II leaves cures pyorrhoea. A mixture of carrot juice and Spinach juice, taken early in the morning, can cure bleeding and ulcerated gums.
Pregnancy and Lactation :- As the richest source of folic acid, spinach is a very valuable food during pregnancy and lactation. Megaloblastic anemia of pregnancy occurs because the mother is deficient in folic acid. This deficiency of folic acid occurs as this substance is required for the developing foetus. Regular use of spinach during pregnancy will help prevent the deficiency of folic acid. It will also prevent threatened abortion and accidental haemorrhage, deficient absorption of food by small intestine associated with lassitude i.e. tiredness, shortness of breath, loss of weight and diarrhea. Spinach is also good source of nutrition for nursing or lactating mothers and improves the quality of their milk.
Urinary Disorders : -Fresh spinach juice taken with tender coconut water once or twice a day acts as a very effective but safe diuretic due to the combined action of both nitrates and potassium. It can be safely given in cystitis, nephritis and scanty urination due to dehydration.
Respiratory Disorders :- Infusion of fresh leaves of spinach prepared with two teaspoonful of fenugreek seeds mixed with a pinch of ammonium chloride and honey is an effective expectorant tonic during the treatment of bronchitis, tuberculosis, asthma and dry cough due to congestion in the throat. It sooths the bronchioles, liquefies the tenacious sputum and forms healthy tissues in the lungs and increase resistance against respiratory infections. It should be taken in doses of 30 ml. three times daily. "
