Healthy Tip

What is the best way to buy lettuce? Don't buy iceberg....period!

Iceberg has VERY little health value. Buy spinach or a spring mix instead. Even Romain would be better.

We generally use spinach for salad, sandwiches, casseroles and pretty much anything else we can put it in.

If you have a hard time swallowing darker leafy greens, buy the iceberg and then cut the spinach into small shreds and add it in.

Here is a website I found that backs my theory....I love it when that happens :).

Amen to the iceberg lettuce!
Romaine is my favorite and the spring mix is good but some of those greens are a little bitter.
Hope you have a great day!

I found a great recipe for appleasauce muffins on this website. I bet if you like it and you ask her if you could use it she'd let you.
