Vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients. We need these in the correct amounts or our bodies won't function optimally.

Tips for better micronutrient absorption:
  • Some vitamins are fat soluble, so add a little olive oil, avocado, or nuts to your salad.
  • Crush garlic and let it sit before using. This releases allicin, a powerful disease fighting chemical.
  • Iron in leafy greens is best absorbed with vitamin C. Squeeze some lemon juice on your kale!
  • If you boiled your food, use the water for a soup stock to retain the nutrients. Blanching, steaming, sauteeing, roasting, or even microwaving are better ways of preserving nutrient content.
  • Lycopene in tomatoes is better absorbed when cooked.
