lettuce love

12 Aug

photo (4)Look how pretty this lettuce is! It’s bright purple, and primed for its time to shine.

It’s so easy to overlook the importance of lettuce in our lives.

This is a photo of red leaf lettuce, which is packed with vitamins A and K, along with calcium, iron, beta carotene and lutein.

Bring out the lettuce, especially this time of year when it’s growing in abundance and make fun salads, stir fry’s, soups, sandwich toppings, summer roll fillings, or even grill it (romaine is best for this).

So give a little love to your lettuce this summer, and enjoy the summer bounty!

    I share that love for lettuce, and we often overlook the fact that it is packed with nutrients…I can see a salad on our menu tomorrow:)
