We have all heard that iceberg lettuce doesn't have any health benefits and it is a waste to buy it. That is not necessarily true! Think of it this way; it is better to have a salad made with iceberg lettuce than to not have a salad! Also consider this; iceberg lettuce is 96% water by weight so it is good for staying hydrated. Iceberg lettuce is also a good source of fiber which most Americans should eat more. Make a sandwich wrap with a large iceberg lettuce leaf and save the calories you would get if eating a bun. Iceberg lettuce in certainly not the most nutritious lettuce available but it does have some health benefits.
