True or False: You will absorb more nutrients from your veggies by eating them with a fat (such as a vinaigrette dressing) :

True
Your body can't make use of certain vitamins and antioxidants found in vegetables(beta-carotene, vitamin D, and vitamin E in particular) without a bit of fat to help process them. Ditch the fat-free salad dressing and dip your fork into a dressing made with olive oil for heightened meal satisfaction and nutrient absorption!
