Pair yolks with colourful veg for a match made in heaven
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.
