Eat Like An Egyptian!
Andy Boy Romaine has an exciting and revered history. The ancient Egyptian tombs reveal paintings of lettuce with elongated and pointed leaves. Cleopatra must have used it as a diet staple to maintain her worshiped figure. She shared her secret with General Mark Anthony who brought it to great popularity in Rome. His nephew, Augustus Caesar, who later ruled the Roman Empire was said to have constructed a statue of Romaine lettuce to honor its healing abilities after being cured of a serious illness. No wonder they named such a wonder of Mother Nature after their own Empire!
