Try to make it a healthy choice.
Most people get this wrong, and they don’t even know it…
In the bowl, you have green vegetables, loaded with the best nutrients you can possibly eat. They just need a little pop of flavor, and you’re good to go.
So, you reach for some healthy, fat-free dress–
STOP RIGHT THERE.
What you’re about to do is the step where most people unknowingly go wrong: the dressing.
You may have heard before that dressings can mess up salads, but it goes way beyond what you’ve been told…
And the worst dressings are often the light and fat-free ones labeled as “healthy.”
There are 4 Nutrition-Destroying Toxins contaminating these dressings that that you shouldn’t be putting into your body… and I’m about to show them to you.
I’m also about to show you the simple way you can skip the unhealthy dressings and make your salad delicious while amplifying how healthy it is for you to eat.
First, though, let’s identify those 4 toxins in your “healthy” dressing.
TOXIN #1: Phosphoric Acid
This chemical is used industrially for rust removal. Sound like something you want in your digestive tract?
It’s also used by salad dressing manufacturers as a cheap alternative to lemon juice to create a brighter/tangier flavor…
TOXIN #2: Potassium Sorbate
This chemical is used as a preservative in your dressing to unnaturally increase its shelf life.
It was recently shown by a two-university study in Turkey to be toxic to lymphocytes — the crucial immunity cells responsible for fighting off most infectious diseases in your body.
TOXIN #3: Calcium Disodium EDTA
Food manufacturers have disturbingly decided to put this industrial metal cleaner in your dressing as a color preservative.
It’s currently flagged by the FDA for further safety investigation, as it’s been linked to kidney damage, bloody urine, and poor vitamin absorption. Yet, it still hasn’t been removed from your dressing.
TOXIN #4: High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
I can’t stress how bad this stuff is — NOT an option if you’re wanting to slim down or feel and look healthier.
The mountain of information on the dangers of eating this nasty substance is far too massive to cover here, but here are a few highlights:
Your salad dressings — especially the light and fat-free ones — are an unappetizing cocktail of all 4 of these toxins…
…plus fillers, dyes, and all sorts of other artificial junk the human body was never designed to consume.
And if — like myself and so many people who are reading this newsletter right now — you have ever suffered from digestive issues…
NONE of the ingredients listed above are good for the friendly bacteria in your gut that help you digest food properly.
Look… I’m not saying consuming this dressing is going to kill you on the spot. It’s not.
But it’s definitely not good for you. It’s chock-full of foreign chemicals your body was absolutely not designed to ingest, process, or absorb.
Besides, I’m about to show you a much healthier substitute.
So, throw that fake, unnatural junk away…
That’s it! Pour it on your salad and indulge!
If you want to get fancy, you can whisk in a little minced garlic as well. Want it tangier? Add a dash of lemon juice. Lighter? Add a dash or two of water.
Now, besides tasting good and not containing all the toxic chemicals I listed above, there’s an added bonus to this dressing you just made…
The fat in the olive oil makes your vegetables much more nutritious!
In a groundbreaking study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, fat was shown to significantly enhance the absorption of vitamins from salad vegetables when compared to fat-free dressings.
So, enjoy your newly-dressed, super-tasty salad… and reap the health benefits!
As always, I hope you’ve found this enlightening.
