“This recipe is from the REAL AGE website as a recipe for a "good fat" appetizer. "Consuming a small amount of healthy unsaturated fat, such as olive oil, before a meal slows the rate at which the stomach empties, which means: You'll digest your food more slowly, so you'll eat less but still feel full. Your blood sugar won't hit a high peak after you eat, but will remain at a lower, stable level. Your body will more easily absorb fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K, as well as fat-soluble nutrients such as lycopene and lutein." Written by RealAge, Inc., peer-reviewed by Dr. Axel Goetz, September 2004”
