Refreshing Salad With a Splash of Olive Oil

 
 
Vegetables play a vital role in our diets, as they support the normal functioning of the different body systems. They do so by providing our cells with vitamins, minerals, fiber, essential oils and phytonutrients. While eating cooked vegetables is healthy for you, in certain instances it is advantageous to eat raw vegetables. This is because cooking destroys essential nutrients such as vitamin C and also kills vital enzymes that help your body to digest such foods.


I love to Indulge in This Refreshing Salad, when I feel guilty about my weight...Eating the raw veggies makes me feel so good, and energetic because like I said above, their are so many good health benefits to this..
"This is a quick and easy throw-together salad that is super Easy, and so Delicious Plus a great way to use up some of your fresh garden veggies. Very refreshing! Increase or decrease the amount of olive oil, salt and pepper...Add as many vegetables as you desire..
