Lettuce - All Varieties

Lettuce is one of the most poular green leafy vegetables. Its crispy leaves, ranging in color from green to purple to red, are an incredible source of essential nutrients that benefit your health. If you're looking to pack more nutrients into your salads or healthy sandwiches, stick with lettuces richer in color, like romaine or red-leaf lettuce, as oposed to iceberg lettuce, which is comprised of mostly water. Along with essential nutrients, lettuce has also been linked to helping you sleep better; the white fluid that you see when you break or cut lettuce leaves is called lactucarium, which has relaxing and sleep inducing properties.
