Salad is the easiest food is made and the many variations

Salad is the easiest food is made and the many variations. Both in terms of texture, color, and flavor. In addition, there are pleasant sensation that we can feel when eating it. Cold, crisp, and fresh!

Another bonus, eating a salad every day also will give us four health benefits, such as:

1. Provide fiber intake.

Eating foods high in fiber will help lower cholesterol and prevent constipation or indigestion. Barbara Rolls, PhD, author of The Volumetrics Eating Plan, add eating more fiber will help us feel more full so that we be eating less. And that means very good for weight loss programs.

2. Dredge the healthy benefits of fruits and vegetables.

Many experts agree if we need to add daily servings of fruits and vegetables we. David Joacobs, PhD, professor of Public Health at the University of Minnesota declared a lot of evidence that fruits and vegetables have higher nutrient content so it can provide a great contribution in maintaining overall health.

If we include a green vegetable salad lovers, we will obtain a high intake of antioxidants, like vitamin C, E, folic acid, lycopene, and beta carotene, especially if raw. Antioxidants are substances that can help protect our bodies from damage due to exposure to free radicals. Studies from the National Cancer Institute found that if our diet rich in fruits and vegetables, it will reduce our risk of cancer in the head and neck.

3. Cut calories and increase satisfaction.

If our goal is to lose weight, start eating rituals by eating 'green salad'. A study shows eating low-calorie menu, such as salad vegetables with 150 calories or less, able to increase the satisfaction or the feeling of satiety and cut the total number of calories you should consume during a meal. Motto 'bigger is better', but the meaning of this motto is the volume of salad rather than the number of calories. So, add the vegetables and reduce the number of dressings and knick-knacks that other fatty.

4. Getting a good intake of fat.

Eating less fat properly, such as monounsaturated fats that exist in olive oil, avocado or nuts, along with vegetables will help your body absorb phytochemicals that can protect the body better, such as lycopene from tomatoes and lutein from dark green sayutan.

A recent study from Ohio State University to measure how well the phytochemicals are absorbed by the body when people eat a salad of lettuce, carrots, and spinach, together or not with 2 ½ tsp avocado. As a result, avocado eaters absorb 8 times more alpha-carotene and beta carotene many 13 times more, than the group who ate salad without avocado. And both of these nutrients believed to help us protected from the causes of cancer and heart disease. (Astrid Anastasia)
