Iceberg lettuce has a bad reputation. Which is a shame! So, here are some reasons why you should invite iceberg back into your healthy eating plan.
1. its inexpensive
2. mostly water (= hydration)
3. mostly fiber (= more fiber!! -wink, wink!)
4. adds bulk to regular salads (i.e. more food!! yay!)
5. neutral taste (you went to the trouble to make your own salad dressing you should at least taste it!) AND
6. memories (lunch box sandwiches! yum!)
Those are just some of MY reasons for loving iceberg lettuce, I'm sure there are more "strange" people out there. So next time you go to the store, don't walk pass the humble iceberg! (It's starting to think you don't like it!)
