Iceberg Lettuce

Commonly used as a main vegetable in salads, icebergs are the least nutritious lettuce of all. Although not entirely a bad vegetable, it does not provide as much nutrients as other lettuce do in a single serving.

Tip: When choosing a big leafy vegetable, go with a darker green or colour like romaine lettuce or radicchio.
