One of the biggest dieting mistakes is eating a fat free salad. Every salad should have a little fat added because your body absorbs nutrients better.

Certain foods become healthier when eaten together. Many vegetables are fat-soluble, which means your body absorbs their nutrients better when you eat a little fat with them. The more nutrients your body absorbs, the less hungry you will be. It also helps lower any sugar cravings!

So, every time you eat a salad, check to make sure you have some fat along with it! Have a salad dressing with olive oil, MCT oil, or even a little buttermilk. Little Choices Matter’s Heavenly Ranch or Creamy Avocado Dressing are great healthy fat additions to your salad. You can also throw on a little (goat) cheese, sliced avocado, seeds or nuts to your salad – these will all help make you healthier and slimmer.
