Nutritionally speaking, all Lettuce recipes follow these
Fresh & Local
It Starts at the Source
Lettuce meals have ingredients that are almost all organically grown and local produced.
Nutritious, organic soils maximize the nutrients in produce.
Local, just in time harvests means that produce retains more vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients.
Vegetables & Fruit
“Eat more vegetables!” they all say.
Lettuce makes it easy by making fresh, seasonal vegetables at least half of every Lettuce meal. Lettuce also provides a weekly orchard basket delivery of local, seasonal fruit.
The human body uses protein to build and repair tissues. Protein is also used to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals, and is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
Lettuce sources high quality, local proteins like fish, lean pork, chicken, beef, beans, lentils, nuts, cheese, and more.
Lettuce meals provide 25 percent of your calories from protein for omnivores and vegetarians alike.
Carbohydrates are a primary source of food your body uses for energy. There are simple carbohydrates (such as honey, table sugar, and high-fructose corn syrup), and complex carbohydrates – starches (bread, pasta, rice, and potatoes and so on) and dietary fiber (fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains).
Sounds complicated? Indeed – choosing the best carbohydrates can be tricky! Lettuce’s team of professional dietitians and chefs get together to make balanced choices that end up in your delivery.
We used to fear fat, but today’s experts agree that we need healthy fats for healthy living.
You wouldn’t put the wrong motor oil in your car engine, then why put unhealthy fats into your body? Lettuce meals include healthy fats, such as the unsaturated fats from olive oil, nuts, and seeds.
From the Soil to Your Body
Fresh, non-GMO abd regenerative, organic growing practices means that the food that you receive is nutrient dense.
Most Lettuce meals provide a significant percentage of the daily recommended vitamins, minerals and other nutrients like fiber and omega-3s in your diet. If accompanied by good eating habits with other meals, with Lettuce, you can save yourself the discomfort and cost of most dietary supplements, including multi-vitamins.
Know What You Eat
While some processed foods may not be bad for you, most mass-market processed food are. But they sure are convenient, cheap and accessible, and come with some terrific advertising and packaging.
