DON’T FOR­GET TO… ADD OIL TO YOUR SALAD

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

A re­cent US study found that adding oil to your salad can dou­ble the amount of nu­tri­ents you score from the meal. The re­searchers say that adding a splash of oil to your greens helps ab­sorp­tion of vi­ta­mins A, E and K, as well as carotenoids – all of which can pre­vent can­cer and pro­tect your eye­sight. The study looked specif­i­cally at the nu­tri­ent-boost­ing ef­fects of oil up to a quan­tity of 32g, which is just over two ta­ble­spoons of soy­bean or olive oil, so get driz­zling.
