It is said that the effect of eating too much lettuce is 'soporific'.

My father belonged to a commune, and the food was ghastly. My idea of food hell is the salad cream they'd pour all over bits of lettuce, cucumber and tomato. It was just disgusting.
I know the price of lettuce. You need to understand price and value. You buy the best lettuce you can at the best price you can.
