Mom's Cooked Lettuce

Ok, I don't know how many of you know this. But where I come from cooked lettuce and also drinking it's juice it's good to cleanse your stomach. My mom used to boil lettuce at least a few times a month for us. We weren't happy about it, but she used to say to us that it cleans our stomach and we should eat some. It does work, and you feel better once you eat it regularly. Anyway it's so easy to make, and it's healthy. You just need a head of romaine lettuce, water, salt and olive oil to drizzle on top.

In a pot boil about 4 to 5 cups of water add salt to taste, wash the lettuce good take out the wilted leaves cut the lettuce in big bite size and add it to the boiling water cook it for about 10 to 15 minutes. Don't drain it, drizzle with olive oil.
Make sure you drink the juice too.

(Lettuce - The lettuce is green because it contains the potent antioxidant and photochemical known as chlorophyll. Lettuce contain things that are great for your colon and your body in general such as, fiber, beta and alpha carotene, B vitamins, calcium, potassium, iron, and many other nutrients. In general the more green and dark colored the lettuce you eat the better it is for your overall health and your colon.)
