Fatten up your Salads

In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers at Iowa State University found that subjects who ate salads with healthy oils, such as, olive oil ,avocado oil and nuts, absorbed several key nutrients and antioxidants, including beta-carotene, vitamin E, vitamin K and lycopene better. These nutrients are fat-soluble and benefit from being paired with a source of fat. Adding healthy fats to roasted vegetables will also help your body absorb more nutrition.
