    The benefits of the dish

    Salad with sun-dried tomatoes, the recipe of which KhozOboz offers you today, consists of several ingredients. Let's start with the tomatoes themselves. Sun-dried tomatoes retain most of the nutrients found in fresh tomatoes. It's no secret that they contain a high content of antioxidants, as well as the highest concentration of lycopene among foods. Recently, by the way, a link has been discovered between this same lycopene and bone health. It turned out that in postmenopausal women, changes began, and undesirable ones, in bone tissue if these women were deprived of lycopene. Scientists believe that if the diet does not contain foods containing lycopene, this increases the risk of developing osteoporosis.

    In addition to sun-dried tomatoes, we will use fresh greens in the preparation of the salad, namely, baby spinach, mizuna leaves (red and green), mustard leaves, chard leaves, arugula, etc. All these greens contain many vitamins and minerals, but almost never do not eat by itself, because greens do not give a feeling of satiety. Indeed, leafy salads contain so few calories that they are often included in their diet by everyone who follows the figure.

    Another ingredient in our salad is canned corn. It contains carbohydrates, protein, fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, iron, magnesium, zinc. Corn also has anti-stress properties. Thus, 150 g of corn provides approximately 25% of the required amount of vitamin B1 for an adult. Of course, canned corn will lose a certain amount of nutrients, but its shelf life will increase significantly.

    Carrots, which are also among the ingredients of today's dish, are rich in carotenes, phytoene, phytofluene. It also contains pantothenic and ascorbic acids, anticyanidins, essential oils, flavonoids, lysine, ornithine, umbrelifsron and many other useful substances. Fresh carrots can be consumed at least every day, including in salads.

    We will also add mozzarella cheese to the salad. The main value of mozzarella is in vitamins and minerals necessary for healthy skin, vision, and also for the formation of red blood cells. There are also many substances in mozzarella that affect the health of the musculoskeletal system, promote the absorption of calcium, as well as protect cell membranes from oxidative stress.
