No salad is complete without a good portion of Lettuce, right? As a matter of fact, Lettuce is very healthy to eat and is also know as the ‘weight loss food’. (It is also my Guinea Pig’s favorite).
Now the big question is, which is the best Lettuce to eat?
- With so many varieties one can get, Romaine Lettuce is the healthiest one!
- It has the highest nutritional value of all.
- It contains very less sugar.
- Twice the Calcium and Protein (than in Iceberg lettuce)
- Four times the Iron and whatnot!
So if you wish to lose weight or simply eat healthy, Romain Lettuce is the one! 🙂
REMEMBER – always choose red, green and dark colored foods over whites. Red and Green leaf Lettuce are way more nutritional than Iceberg.
So why should you include Lettuce in your diet? Following are 8 reasons that would make you love the Vegetable more and more ❤
