Eat salad with monosaturated fat based dressing

Everyone knows that salads are packed with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.  However, research suggests that the nutrients in your salads are absorbed more effectively when combined with salad dressings made with monosaturated fats.  That means you should be eating your salad with a dressing made from an oil like olive oil or canola oil. 

Salad dressing made with saturated fats are still effective in increasing blood levels of the nutrients in the salad, but higher quantities of the saturated fats are required.  In their research, they found that in salads without dressings, there was a reduced absorption of important nutrients.

Therefore, if you want to stick to a low calorie diet, use unsaturated oils in your salad dressing.  Not only can you reduce your caloric intake, but you’ll also absorb more of the nutrients from your salad.
