iVillage.com: Foods That Are Healthier Than You Think

Iceberg Lettuce

You’ve heard all about how healthy dark, leafy greens (like kale, collard greens and Swiss chard) are, but that doesn’t mean you have to throw out iceberg lettuce just yet, Batayneh says. This crispy (and often more palatable) lettuce is a good source of iron, vitamin B6, K, A, and C. It’s also higher in alpha-carotene (an antioxidant) than spinach, she says. And this low calorie, water-rich lettuce is the perfect base for a filling salad. For even more nutrients, Batayneh suggests mixing it with some darker greens (like kale, arugula, or mache), and topping it with a dressing that contains healthy fats to boost your body’s absorption of nutrients.
