Some vitamins are fat soluble (namely vitamins D, E, K, and E). Among other things, this means that they will be better absorbed from the digestive tract when eaten with a little fat. So feel free to toss a few nuts onto your salad, opt for olive oil and vinegar rather than fat free dressing, or add a little avocado to your smoothie. Your body will thank you for it.
