Omega-3 Fats: These are most plentiful in fatty fish - salmon, trout, tuna.as well as in green leafy vegetables, flaxseed, flaxseed oil and tofu. Lack of dietary fat may also prevent absorption of phytochemicals contained in fruits and vegetables.
According to Kevin Vigilante, M.D., co-author of Low-Fat Lies: High-Fat Frauds and Healthiest Diet in World. "One of most unhealthy things you can do is pour a nonfat dressing on a salad.
"Carotenes (phytochemicals that are some of most potent anticancer antioxidants) bind to fat. If you don't eat any fat within a few hours of consuming carotenes, you won't absorb them. So health benefits of that salad are flushed down toilet," he says.
One of best ways to get "fat" with your salad is flax oil. Here are some of my favorites dressing recipes using flax oil: (NEVER cook with flax oil, it becomes toxic when cooked)
Cyndi's Famous Flax Dressing
1 Cup flax oil 4 T. honey 3/4 t. ginger 1/2 t. pepper 2 T. raw apple cider vinegar
Blend all ingredients and serve. Shake well just before using. You can increase or decrease amount of honey to taste.
This is a sweet dressing; probably why I like it so much!
You can also try these different variations; - Barbeque Dressing - Your favorite barbeque sauce and flax oil - Honey Mustard Dressing:Again, Flax oil, mustard and honey. Mix to taste.
It used to be that there was only one kind of fat - BAD! Now research is showing importance of essential fatty acids.
Not only will those "good fats" help you lose weight, they will help you achieve your health!
