Well, it’s been a while since I have looked at this segment–mostly because I got stuck on foods for the letters I and J, then I got a little busy, but I think I have it now…
I is for Iceberg Lettuce:
I love eating iceberg lettuce whether is an addition to a sandwich or in a bowl of greens. Iceberg lettuce is deliciously crunchy, packs a few good vitamins (Thiamin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin A) and is hydrating. Hydrating? Yes. This lettuce is about 96% water, which will help you feel full and satisfied.
On afternoons where you are not extremely hungry, wrap your tuna or chicken salad in a leaf of iceberg lettuce instead of bread–bringing the wonderful worlds of salad and sandwiches together. Using lettuce wraps instead of bread/rolls will also ensure that you don’t indulge in bad carbs during lunch break. Happy eating!
