so i've been following a pretty strict (well, not so much recently!) paleo diet, and have been primarily consuming brocolli, spinach, and chard as my main sources of veggies along with red bell peppers. lately, i've been getting sick of these and am looking for other opyions. i know that iceberg lettuce is pretty much just water, but what about other types of lettuce like red leaf, green leaf, and romaine? are these better choices thatn the iceberg, or are they pretyt much the same?

thanks,

scott

Bok Choy!! Saute or stir fry with garlic and a little sesame oil in the wok.

I love lettuce. All kinds. I usually use iceberg, green leaf lettuce, spinach and arugula plus some other neat stuff which I'll post when I find their translation!:biggrin:

Sesame seeds too...They are great for when you want to up the calories in anything you eat, whether it's meat or salad and lots of olive oil just won't do it, or will ruin the experience. (Typically meat can swim in olive oil for all I care, but a nice salad does impose a limit in oils and vinegar)

Never tried sesame oil...How is it?
