Monday is a beautiful day to celebrate a wonderful week ahead of us and did you know about the advocacy of leafy green monday or luntiang lunes. I guess, if your a follower of this blog, you have encountered several times about this advocacy. Some called this as meatless monday or meat free monday but whatever it was called, it still goes with one aim, eating vegetables on monday.
Lettuce, a part of the sunflower family is a good source of vitamin C and widely known to be the main ingredients of salad. For those like me whose into diet and suffering insomnia, lettuce can be a great cure because it contains sleep inducing substance which is called “lectucarium”. It’s low in calorie because of its high water volume. The benefits of organic lettuce are many to mention.
Lettuce has different form, romaine which is good for caesar salad, leaf which is just like the above picture and the wide known iceberg or crisphead.
What’s good with the lettuce i just recently consumed is its organic and we all know that organic foods are more richer in nutrients and safety for our health.
There is only one risk on eating lettuce, if contaminated it can be a source of e coli and salmonella that’s why proper handling and caring is needed to avoid the same.
