Article titled ‘Get The Most From Your Veggies’ hit the wire a few weeks ago but i neglected to post. Better late than never.

Looks like we are on to something here with our Combining Different Food Groups menu strategy. It actually works.

Summary of the article: (i) Unless you add a little bit of good fat, you will not absorb as much of the nutrients from fruits and veggies as you otherwise could. Eating a salad – add a balsamic or other freshly made dressing with olive oil. Fruit ? pair them with some almonds. (ii) Look for fruits and vegetables with bright color – the color results from the presence of carotenoids which are high in antioxidant activity.

We serve grass fed cheeses, freshly made guacamole and hummus, and house made vinaigrette dressings that are emulsified every morning. All of these items are great ways to add a bit of good fat to your meal. Good fat is BETTER than low or nonfat. We promise.
