When choos­ing a salad, re­mem­ber: Cobb is bet­ter than Cae­sar – and that’s proven by science. Why? Carotenoids are thought to pre­vent some forms of can­cer and heart dis­ease, as well as boost­ing your im­mune sys­tem, and brightly coloured veg­eta­bles in­clud­ing toma­toes, leafy greens and pep­pers are sim­ply brim­ming with them. How­ever, a new study’s found that a large pro­por­tion will go un­ab­sorbed un­less you have a side serv­ing of eggs. Join us in a minute’s si­lence for all the carotenoids lost over the years while we dili­gently munched egg­less sal­ads, and then spend the next three wait­ing for your soft-boiled eggs to be done – an eggs can raise the ab­sorp­tion rate by up to three times.
