    Green Veggie Ideas for Someone With Lettuce Intolerance

    My hubby and I have been making progress in eating healthier. We want to go more plant-based. However, hubby has problems digesting lettuce. We use the higher quality red-leaf kind in salads, but even then he can only handle amounts, and when he's stressed it will run right through him. This also prevents us from making wraps with lettuce leaves.

    What would you recommend as a substitute?

    You can put cooked broccoli and/or cauliflower in a salad too. Just about anything you find in the produce department can be put in a salad. Things like asparagus, brussels sprouts, mushrooms, pasta, beans and all kinds of cooked root-vegetables.

    It doesn't have to be all green; go for a wide variety of different colors. Different colors represent different phytonutrients.

    Use cabbage leaves for wraps. Try arugula, mache', baby romaine instead of lettuce.

    Kale is also a good green.
