I find cutting the greens very fine and mix them well so its more difficult for your dragon to pick out their favorite bits works. Though Romain isn't a good green itself, you can mix a little in with healthy greens like collards, dandelions etc. Just make sure the cuts are fine and well mixed so she doesn't just eat the romaine.

Also, if your dragon is already an adult, try just offering greens every other day, nothing between. Sometimes dragons just need to get really hungry and non breeding adults of good weight, are fine with 3-4 meals a week. I find my dragons don't tend to want to eat every day once they are over 18 months. Or just eat a little if food is offered everyday. If she's active, keeping a steady weight and eats well every couple days...or a little each day, there's typically nothing to worry about.
