Nutritional value lettuce

Common Questions and Answers about Nutritional value lettuce


328799 tn?1276565732 Just to help prevent this next time, all iceberg lettuce is "bad." It has absolutely no nutritional value. Switch to Romaine and Green Leaf, or even better, a spring mix or something like it that has dandelion greens, parsley, watercress, and the like, which are chock full of minerals and good nutrition. That will save you from the fact that iceberg does go bad more quickly in spots than other lettuces. (From an old produce manager).
594189 tn?1386916607 You should be getting most of your 20grams of carbs from green veg, things like brocolli are ideal. There is little nutritional value in lettuce, so do try to include other things when you are having a salad, how about peppers, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers etc. There is a great forum at if you want to chat to people about your meal plans who understand this diet.

Avatar f tn As others have said, no. That is not healthy. We need to keep in the nutritional make up of what we are eating. Lettuce really isn't a great vegitable for health. A good sandwich would be a whole wheat pita pocket filled with some green and red sliced peppers, some cucumbers, tomatoes, slivered carrots, maybe a little fresh basil and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Very tasty and full of good for you items (as you use any vegi's that you like).
Avatar f tn So, when picking what to eat, think what has the biggest nutritional bang for the calories. A handful of nuts packs a good source of protein and other vitamins verses something less nutritional for the same calories. I do cut back on carbs.
Avatar f tn If you do salads, use spinach or romaine burg lettuce really has no nutritional value to it. All veggies are good...just ear what you like. Don't force yourself to eat a veggy that is going to make you gag. For breakfast a scrambled egg or 2 with some fruit or whole grain toast is goid. Avoid a lot of breakfast meats (bacon sausage etc) as they have a lot of nitrates in them.
Avatar f tn I was wondering at what to put the nutritional value of food over the amount of calories they contain. For example, I regulate my calories fairly closely and usually am always well under the daily recommended amount, but there are some days that I feel like I am hungry all day. As a general rule, I enjoy eating raw mixed nuts as a snack, but they tend to be high in calories.
Avatar n tn Juice covers a lot -- virtually anything can be juiced if you're doing this yourself. Fruit juices contain a lot of sugar, but can also be powerful antioxidants, but vegetable juices can be very valuable. Wheatgrass juice is great. So this depends on what you mean by nutritional juices. Most important, avoid anything that's not organic. When you juice anything, you use a lot of it, and that enhances the amount of harmful chemicals that exist on whatever you're juicing.
Avatar m tn You might want to hit the lights and check, because for the first time ever, the FDA is allowing fresh spinach and iceberg lettuce to be zapped with radiation in order to kill bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella. Puts a whole new spin on "nuking" your food, doesn't it? The goal, as with most wrongheaded ideas, is to "protect" consumers. And as usual, the FDA has chosen incorrectly. Are you surprised?
Avatar f tn i was always under the impression in the past there wasnt much nutritional value in b.m after 12 months. addison is now almost 13 months and while her vitamins are mostly from her foods she is still at the breast. how long is it something that she benefits from? im in no hurry to wean her, and she has no intentions she is very much in love with her boob lol, but im curious. she seems to be more and more dependant on the breast to fall asleep too, which i need to break.
8793709 tn?1409594060 I do the same as you, except that when hubby gets home I turn the stove back on to reheat it instead of microwave. I believe that even if it loses a little bit of the nutritional value, it's still healthier and cheaper than ordering or eating out.
325405 tn?1262290178 I think if you freeze it, you would take away from the nutritional value. You could get the same nutritional value from eating bean sprouts on a salad. Would be easier for you.
1417802 tn?1282173063 Sorry to hear about your treatment not being effective.are you going to be treating again with the new DAA"s that are going to be coming out soon? There are many elixir"s and supplements people are taking for nutritional value and some it seems have value in regards to keeping liver counts (enzyme )readings lower. If the Hepa feels their is no harm ,and markers don"t rise..then yes nothing to lose Keep us informed and good luck.. Will.

349463 tn?1333571576 In general, it is recommended that breastfed babies wait until closer until 6 months to maximize the benefits of breastmilk. Basically, rice cereal has no nutritional value- it is empty calories. Giving it to your baby takes the place of nutritional milk. It also can contribute to diabetes and obesity because it trains the baby to fill up on empty calories. The studies are interesting. If you do introduce it by spoon, it is to begin introducing the baby to taste and texture.
537799 tn?1222116971 re talking dark and green (iceberg lettuce, for example, is mostly water and is of little nutritive value), so choose your leaves carefully. Spinach has 3.2 mg of iron and 130 mcg of folic acid per 1/2 cup.
Avatar m tn I am curious if I am still getting the same nutritional value from the uncooked oats as if I were cooking them?
Avatar f tn Generally, you should try to eat things that have varied nutritional value and things considered 'healthy' but some cheesecake here and there doesn't hurt.
Avatar f tn Well, graham crackers (also lacking nutritional value) also have a lot of sugar in them. Those would be a trigger food for me. Instead, I eat things like nuts, dried fruit mixed. Some cheese. Tortilla chips with salsa or guacamole. A hard boiled egg. Fruit. Those help you feel full and are nutritional. that's the key.
1544053 tn?1328691992 My dog likes apples. I give her about a 1/4 apple, cut into tiny pieces as treats. At apple time, she often picks her own from the low branches of the trees in the orchard! So I make sure she doesn't get any apple seeds too because they are toxic. Grapes are definitely toxic for dogs. NO grapes! Raisins are the same, ditto sultanas, currants, etc. I've heard of dogs who like bananas, but mine doesn't. Corn....
Avatar f tn You can eat them but you have to eat some thing else with them because they have NO nutritional value for you or baby.
Avatar m tn I hate to be like this but most of the items (if not all) the items listed consist of total unhealthy junk food with zero nutritional value. It is clear the person put a lot of time and research into the list but I am just saying.
Avatar f tn I believe cabbage maybe one of those empty vegetables that fills you up from an appetite perspective but has minimal nutritional value, so you do need to add something else to the cabbage like some kale or spinach for added benefit. thanks for reminding me about the cabbage soup diet because I do need something to help with appetite control so I will add this to my diet as well as other nutritional foods.
Avatar n tn Beer has some nutritional value also.
7489014 tn?1429908568 Spicy is good but Cheetos are kind of like processed junk food. :>) I would try to limit that and go for more healthy options or something with more nutritional value for you and baby. Doesn't mean you can't have some spicy hot Cheetos from time to time though.
