View Full Version : Red Leaf vs. Green Leaf
08-21-2007, 04:01 PM
When I went to the market today they had some nice fresh crispy Red Leaf lettuce so I bought that instead of the Green Leaf that I was going to get. When I juiced it the juice came out a dark red color instead of the green color I am used to and it got me wondering about what the differences are between Red and Green leaf lettuce ? I would like to hear opinions about the two lettuces. What are the nutritional differences ? Which one do you like the taste of ? Any comments appreciated.

I like both for variety. I've heard people say red is better for you, but I'm not sure I agree. I buy as many different organic greens as I can. I buy them from various sources as well. I figure that the more variety in both the type of green and where it was grown, the more nutrients I'll get. Every plant has it's own nutrient make up, as does every soil.
