I love salads of many types and they're a great way to make a whole meal in one dish. You can add fish, chicken, eggs, all kinds of protein sources. You can put in healthy, tasty seeds and nuts. The options with salads are endless. And depending on how you make a salad, they're a very healthy, tasty way to help lose weight, as long as a lot of fattening stuff doesn't go in there. Here are some nutrition facts about various lettuces: http://mailxpress.hubpages.com/hub/Different-Types-Of-Lettuce-Leafs-For-Salads I posted a jicima and carrot salad a while back that my daughter made. It was soooooooooooooooooooooo delicious and refreshing. It had a lot of other ingredients in it too, but not lettuce. I eat a salad almost every day and it usually has an abundance of veggies, along with a variety of lettuces and/or spinach and/or kale added.
