I made a romaine lettuce and strawberry juice today. I only had strawberries and a couple of apples in the fridge so decided to use them up.

This was not one of my favourite vegetable juicing / fruit combos but it wasn’t too bad. I have had better so not sure I would make this again.

I actually bought the romaine lettuce to eat as part of my attempt to eat more salads but I never got round to using them all and it was just too cold. Plus when lettuce is the only option it hardly makes for a tasty salad.

So, this juice was me using up whatever I had in the fridge, which included:

  • A punnet of strawberries
  • 4 romaine lettuce
  • Around 6 carrots
  • lemon and ginger

I juiced them all and this is what it looked like:

Some healthy living facts about romaine lettuce

Romaine lettuce is a great vegetable to get your protein from as it contains a huge amount of protein (17%) per head.

Along with protein it also includes omega-3, calcium, vitamins K, A and B, amino acids and iron

Romaine lettuce also contains a huge amount of water too so you are getting in some of your daily water intake when you eat it.

It is great for your heart and cardiovascular system (or so I read) and is really worth including as part of your healthy eating plan.
