Lemon and Oil Dressing

    Share

    Vary the taste of this simple dressing by replacing the garlic and onions with dill or chives. Add mustard and a drop of honey and it will taste completely different again. There is no limit to your imagination.

    Fats and weight loss

    Essential fatty acids in healthy oils, such as those from flax seed and pumpkin seed, curb hunger and actually help weight loss. When you diet by starving the body of nutrients, you lower metabolism and thus gain more weight on returning to old eating habits. The secret to losing weight is eating smarter and better!
