Is lettuce as healthy as you think it is?

You may have heard the misconception that lettuce holds little to no nutritional value. Surprisingly, lettuce packs a bit of punch in the nutritional value aspect! In 100g of lettuce there are only 15 calories, a good enough reason alone to throw some leaves in with a salad. Lettuce contains high amounts of vitamin K which is vital for bone health and development, as well as decent amounts of vitamin c and folates.
