I’m not into salads like 70% of the year. Cooked veggies are awesome. And if you know me well enough you know I DESPISE iceberg lettuce. But when those hot, hot, hot summer days roll around I am all about the salads. If I happen to be in the mood for solid food that is, as opposed to ice pops and Jamba Juice. But no iceberg lettuce salads, of course. Hell to the no.
I’ve always assumed there wasn’t too much going on nutrition-wise in salad greens, except for my beloved spinach, which is my go-to one. My boyfriend recently sent me a Lifehacker post about leafy greens with this cool chart. Who knew romaine had it going on? This makes me feel better about what I used to think was a weak excuse for vegetable servings!
What are your favorite salad greens? Iceberg lettuce–yay or nay?
