People are losing their minds over the Iceberg Lettuce shortage. Storms in Spain have caused stock shortages in many UK supermarkets for a few different vegetables and Iceberg Lettuce seems to be one of the worst affected.   Eating a keto diet plan involves a generous amount of leafy green vegetables.
