Assorted salads (9 myths about salads)

It's just a salad!
It is not just a salad, as it contains almost 500 calories and about 40 grams of fat. And it's not just any salad, but the one you find in the dum at work or on the street corner or at fast food restaurants. Don't forget that the daily caloric intake indicated for a healthy woman is almost 2000 calories! Don't overdo it and don't apologize! You might as well go to a canteen restaurant and eat a salad of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers with just a pinch of salt. You can also add a teaspoon of olive oil, but only if you have it at hand. If not, avoid vegetable oil!

Fat-free sauces are the healthiest
It is not like that. Indeed, you avoid calories when you eat a salad with light sauce, but what you don't know is that they also have a bad side, namely that they contain sugar. And not anyway, but over 2 tablespoons in each serving. Besides, it doesn't even provide nutrients at all! In addition, sugars block your ability to assimilate carotenoid antioxidants (chemicals that help the body fight diseases of the circulatory system and more) from lettuce and vegetables. In a recent study, it was shown that people who consumed regular salad dressing, so with fat, assimilated twice as many nutrients compared to those who chose light sauce. The result was that the latter sauces did not allow the absorption of nutrients in the body in any form.

Celery contains negative calories, so it compensates for the cheese
With a maximum of 6 calories per head, celery is definitely a diet-friendly food. Unfortunately, the body does not consume extra calories outside of its processing and thawing, so the beneficial role on the figure is still questioned. Unfortunately, no foods containing negative calories have yet been discovered.

Lettuce is just lettuce
In terms of nutrition, the beneficial role of lettuce leaves is undeniable. Both the created and the traditional have anticancer properties. Spinach is also very good due to the intake of lutein, which is known as a weapon against cancer and eye diseases. And, because we are still in the & # 8220green & # 8221 chapter, we should not forget about broccoli. Wonder food, has an active role against cancer. Recent studies show that the presence of the active substance contained in broccoli in the body constantly delays the chaotic development of cells, the mechanism that triggers cancer. The highest concentration of sulforaphane seems to be found in young broccoli plants, the shoots just emerging.

Beans feed as well as meat
A handful of beans contains 4 grams of protein. Beans may not cover all the dietary requirements of your body, but alternating with fiber and essential oils, vitamins and minerals, it is a good choice.

If I add bacon, it's like eating a burger
It is quite close to the truth, especially since the ham will never win a nutritional award. It is considered to be fat, so that a teaspoon of chopped bacon is equivalent to 2 tablespoons of feta cheese or a tablespoon of sunflower seeds. Make sure you don't add fatty sauces to the salad, because not only do they not work well for your figure, but also make you fat!

You can get intoxicated from salad, as easily as from canned beef or chicken
Lettuce, tomatoes and Brussels sprouts are the foods that prove to be the most common carriers of Salmonella and various E coli roots. How do bacteria and microbes get into them? Simple, through the contaminated water with which they develop, when they are cut with infected tools or when people handle them without washing their hands beforehand. When you're in town, you can't do much to avoid infected food, but at home, you can wash them very well before eating them.

Organic salads are healthier
When it comes to nutrients, the freshness of food matters more than their quality of being & # 8220organic & # 8221 or so. Every day after being harvested, vegetables lose vitamin B and C, as well as other nutrients. This process is due to exposure to heat and light. The important idea is that a salad picked yesterday retains much more nutrients than one harvested a week ago, but which is organic. Of course, there are countless other benefits for which organic products deserve to be chosen instead of traditional ones, but the nutritional intake is not one of them.
