Amazing Lettuce! By, Emily ;)

Our crisp juicy lettuce - spinach, romaine, and mixed greens are coming in here on the farm! Not only does this stuff taste AWESOME, but you wouldn't believe the nutritional information about lettuce. Rich in potassium, lettuce also has a good amount of Vitamin C and choline. It has small amounts of Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, and betaine! This amazing green also reduces the chance of hip fracture in elderly women, constipation, cancer, heart disease, and cataracts. It helps promote urination, it induces sleep, helps in liver health, and prevents anemia!!! Wow! Now that you are convinced that you need to eat more of this wonderful vegetable, we have the perfect solution! Come buy delicious, organic lettuce this Friday at Housman Farms!
