Healthy food: story Lettuce's Miracles


‘Lettuce, get your lettuce,' the greengrocer's voice rung out along the streets. ‘Fresh lettuce leaves, they'll calm you down and make your troubles disappear. Crispy, crunchy lettuce heads; whoever tries them will find happiness!'

‘That's gold you're talking about, not lettuce,' people laughed.

‘Lettuce brings you good health, and that's worth more than gold,' the greengrocer replied. ‘Look at my beautiful daughter, she eats lettuce every day.'

The greengrocer's daughter really was beautiful and healthy. Her clear voice and rosy cheeks really brightened up his house.

No one knew where this greengrocer had come from when he arrived in the city ten years before. In those days he had been a poor man with no home and a little girl in his arms. He didn't tell anyone that he had got inflammation of the thyroid gland from working in the mines. They had sacked him, and he began wandering aimlessly, until he ended up in a deserted field. When he woke up, he realised he was lying in the undergrowth of wild lettuces. Next to him, a tiny girl was chewing green leaves. The exhausted wanderer whispered :

‘I always dreamed of having such a daughter, but I found her too late…'

The little girl squeaked, ‘Eat some lettuce and you'll get better.' The man was surprised, but he started furiously gobbling up the lettuce, and continued to do so every day . He thought it was remarkably tasty. The little girl also ate nothing but lettuce, and she never got hungry or thirsty. A couple of weeks later, the man had got his strength back and, taking the little girl with him, he went on his way.

Soon he found himself a deserted hut on the outskirts of the town, and started to grow lettuces beside it. When the first harvest was ready, the greengrocer gathered the lettuces in a basket, put the baby on his shoulders and set off towards town.

‘Get your lettuce! It's good for you and helps fight illness!' he told people. After walking round town for several days in vain, the wanderer collapsed in exhaustion on the stone steps in front of some sort of building and, putting his daughter on his knee, he said sadly:

‘We grew the salad for nothing, daughter: no one here is buying it.'

The little girl squeaked something in reply. The greengrocer listened, nodded his head and knocked on the door of the building which they were sitting beside.

‘Madam, I know your son has poor health, and often suffers from nosebleeds. He'll get better if you give him my lettuce to eat. It contains nine different vitamins. But the most important thing is that my salad has the most vitamin K, which helps blood clot,' the gardener told the woman who opened the door.

‘How do you know that, you tramp?' the woman asked sternly.

‘My daughter whispered it in my ear, she was born inside a lettuce,' the greengrocer replied.

‘Don't talk rubbish,' the woman snapped. ‘But give me some lettuce anyway.'

A few days later, the woman's servant came to the greengrocer's hut and bought two baskets of lettuce, saying as he left.

‘The boy got better, and my mistress loses her temper with the servants less often.'

‘Tell her to eat lettuce as well. It contains a lot of copper, which is the best medicine for upset nerves,' the greengrocer replied.

The next morning, when the greengrocer was walking down the street with his lettuce, a window swung open in one of the houses, and a distinguished gentleman, his face bright red ...
