WHY IS THIS SALAD SO HEALTHY?
It's got vitamin A, C, and K, in addition to iron, folate, potassium, calcium, and plenty of fiber, not to mention a plethora of multi-tasking polyphenols.
Protein. Iron. Vitamin D. Lots of omega-3 fatty acids.
Protein of course, but also appreciable amounts of vitamins E, K, and that all-too-rare dietary vitamin D. Eggs induce a surge of mTOR, which is probably the most important cell-signaling complex for muscle growth.
They contain lots of magnesium, of which most people are in short supply. Magnesium is involved in anywhere from 300 to 600 enzymatic reactions in the body.
Tomatoes contain a large amount of lycopene. This carotenoid has the highest free radical scavenging ability of any phytochemical. It also plays a supportive role in heart function.
Some protein, plenty of vitamins and minerals, fiber, scads of polyphenols and carotenoids, and stuffed with monosaturated fat.
Calcium, magnesium, and polyphenols, including lots of oleuropein, which is responsible for that burning sensation you feel in the back of your throat when you ingest olive oil. This polyphenol may also cause white fat cells to act more like brown fat cells (and thus burn more body fat), and even increase insulin sensitivity.
BTW, you could use green olives instead of black and get all the same health benefits, but I think black olives marry with the other ingredients in the salad better than green olives.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I EAT IT?
As often as you'd like.
I'd minimally work it into a few meals a week but there is no harm and only benefits of eating it every day like Dr. Hyman.
Furthermore, when combined with the right exercise and a consistent low glycemic diet, weight loss and fat loss would occur.
I hope you enjoy!
