DID YOU KNOW?
Adding fat to vegetables can help your body better absorb the nutrients housed in them. This is because vegetables contain large quantities of vitamins and phytonutrients (beta-carotene and lycopene) that are transported through the body by attaching to fat. As such, you can reap the full nutritional benefits of vegetables by consuming them with a serving of healthy fat. This can be as simple as adding 1/2 an avocado or 1-2 tablespoons of full-fat dressing to your salad.
