Food Fraud: Iceberg Lettuce

This popular lettuce is big on crunch but a big “zero” when it comes to vitamins and flavor. And its boring taste leads many people to overdo it on the dressing and toppings.

Food Fix: Add spinach or arugula to the mix. Crumble 2 tablespoons (100 calories) of blue cheese or feta on top. Then splash the salad with a little oil and vinegar to spread flavor without a lot of calories.

Also, try skipping the iceberg all togather and use a spring mix, or baby greens in place of it. You’ll get a lot more out of your salad nutritionally.
