FrederickSebastian Posted April 22, 2019 Report Share Posted April 22, 2019 Hi, Last time I was in the store, looking for a base for my salad (which is most of my diet) I used cabbage slaw because: 1. Iceberg Lettuce is not nutrient-rich and 2. I like the consistency -- I want something fine. I do NOT like typical square-shaped cut green leafy vegetables because of the shape -> I like to cut my romaine lettuce into diagonally sliced spaghetti-strands that are easier to eat and roll on a fork. My question is: is cabbage slaw as nutrient-rich as most green leafy vegetables or is it lacking like iceberg lettuce? I do not want to continue pouring empty calories into my body if cabbage slaw isn't the way to go... Also -- is it important to get a VARIETY of green leafy vegetables or can I stick to mainly romaine and cabbage slaw, mixing things up now and then with field greens? Is there variety enough in most supermarkets' salad section to get a variety of green leafy vegetables or should I turn to online grocers/grow my own lettuces etc? Thanks, Fred Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
