What has more protein meat or lettuce?

It depends on how you measure it. If you go by the amount of food, regular ground beef has 14.35 grams of protein in 100 grams, whereas lettuce has 1.36 grams of protein per 100 grams.

But for each 100-calorie serving, regular ground beef provides 4.3 grams of protein. By comparison, a 100-calorie serving of green leaf lettuce contains 9.06 grams. So lettuce provides the most protein per calorie.

That's good to remember if you're watching your weight.

Another view:

To disregard calories, and go with nutrition by gram weight, meat (or fish) is an excellent source of protein. Lettuce has almost no protein to speak of. To eat enough lettuce to equal fish in protein would make your stomach explode. Lettuce is a very good source of vitamins and minerals. It is a lousy source for protein.

Can bunnies eat lettuce?

Rabbits can eat lettuce, but too much can be dangerous, and some kinds of lettuce are more dangerous than others. Light-coloured lettuces (like iceberg and Romaine hearts) should be avoided entirely: rabbits shouldn't eat them because they don't have any nutritional value and they can lead to diarrhea and other illnesses. Dark-coloured lettuces with the white parts torn off (like Romaine, red leaf, green leaf, mesclin mix) are healthy for rabbits but too much can still lead to diarrhea or other illnesses. A good guideline is to make your rabbit's "salad" from a wide variety of dark leafy greens (including lettuces, herbs, weeds, carrot tops, etc.), that way you never feed too much of any one kind.

There are many foods that are dangerous for rabbits: some should be avoided entirely, and some should be restricted in the rabbit's diet. Some rabbits are also more sensitive to certain foods than others, so not every rabbit will have the exact same diet. It's important to research the rabbit diet and pay close attention to your rabbit's health. See the related questions below for more info and helpful links.

One person's tips: Avoid giving tomatoes and cucumbers, they cause diarrhea. Never feed your bunnies cabbage or brussel sprouts either as this will give them gas and rabbits can't burp, so gas can be a serious problem. Carrot tops, carrots, mint leaves, sprigs of clover or alfalfa ALL in moderation (every three days is a good rule of thumb) is good for your bunny. They eat as much as they want in the wild because they are then free to go eat other things that balance out their diet and keep them from getting sick. In a cage they are limited to what you feed them.
