Lose weight – HEAD FOR SALADS…
Salads are ideal if you are trying to lose weight. With their high fibre and water content you are able to fill up quickly on a whole lot of goodness. As most of the ingredients are eaten raw, heat-sensitive vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin B1 and Folate are not affected; thus maximising the nutritional value of the ingredients.
Salads help you get those recommended 5 serves of vegetables and 2 serves of fruit each day.
WALNUTS are rich in antioxidants, high in protein and assist in lowering cholesterol. They contain a range of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, iron, copper, magnesium, potassium, zinc and folic acid. Walnuts may also be beneficial to the kidneys, liver, brain, skin and digestive system.
