Benefits of the salad
Very low in calories (about 18 calories / 3.5 oz), tomato is a good slimming ally. This fruit rich in biotin boosts energy, stabilizes blood sugar and speeds up the metabolism. The tomato also has a high fiber content helping to foster feelings of satiety while reducing cravings. Recall that tomato is a detoxifying food and is very rich in lycopene and niacin, two compounds helping to reduce cholesterol.
The cucumber is rich in vitamins (A and C), in minerals (calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc) and in fibers. These are excellent for fostering the feeling of satiety and reduce the urge to nibble thus helping to lose weight. Very low in calories, cucumber is widely known for its high water content helping to hydrate and drain the body and to evacuate toxins. This green vegetable is very effective in improving the functioning of the digestive system and is particularly effective for people prone to constipation.
Nutritious and abundant in minerals (magnesium, calcium, phosphorus …) and vitamins (A, B, C and E), avocado is a fatty food that helps to lose weight! This fruit contains a good dose of healthy fats such as oleic acid, unsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids that accelerate the metabolism limiting weight gain and resulting in less fat storage. The avocado is also rich in fibers that promote the feeling of satiety reducing the cravings for sugar and snacking!
