Healthy Tip: Have some fats on your salad!
Too often when people are trying to eat healthier, they opt for salads with fat-free dressing. The problem though, is that by not having any fats on your salad, your body is missing out on all of those fat-soluble vitamins (micronutrients) that it needs. A great way to get the most out of all of those good veggies (and fruits) is to dress your salad with flavorful vinegar and a touch of heart healthy oil, such as extra virgin olive oil. Then, add some good fats like sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts or almonds to your salad. By doing this, your body will absorb all of that nutritional greatness that it needs.
