Do we get enough nutrition from the salad?

The sight of rich it girls eating salad on the terrace of a small restaurant is a scene we’ve been used to seeing before, but would nutritionists approve of this meal?

Let’s look at the facts: lettuce is a very low-calorie food, so its consumption is often recommended when we go on a diet, but the fact is that as much as 95 to 96 percent of lettuce is actually water. In addition, salad has relatively low nutrient levels, especially when compared to other vegetables. Vegetables such as kale, broccoli and spinach have a lower percentage of water, and consequently higher levels of nutrients needed for the optimal functioning of organisms.

Conclusion: no, salad is not all you need for lunch. Of course, this is no reason not to eat it anymore: it is delicious, easy to digest, low in calories and hydrates the body – just pair it with something more specific next time.
