Don't eat Iceberg Lettuce, and this is why... 


First multiple people have asked me what is in my salad so let me share that first

> Romaine and Spinach
> Sweet Peppers
> Cherry Tomatoes
> Cucumbers
> Sunflower seeds
> Blue Cheese 
> Tuna 
> EVOO and Red Wine as my dressing 

Ok so food for thought!! I use to think that if I went to a restaurant and got a salad that I could say I got a "Green" in for the day. Well after doing the fix portions I now know that you actually can NOT count Iceberg Lettuce as a "green" serving for the day. 
Why? 
Because it contains LITTLE to NO nutrients. So my tip for salads when at a restaurant? ... ask for Romaine! If they have a caesar salad then they carry romaine lettuce. If at home then obviously buy spinach, kale, romaine or a spring mix but do not opt for Iceburg!! 
If you're gonna eat a salad then make count

Also don't kill it in dressing!!! Vinaigrettes are normally your best choice. If's creamy and thick it's probably a no no

 Unless, you made it by hand from the nutritional guide that each program now offers you!
