That’s because we need a little fat to absorb the nutrients in vegetables! Things like lutein, lycopene, and beta-carotene are antioxidants you’ll find in tomatoes, carrots and romaine lettuce, but they’re fat-soluble. So if you don’t eat them with a little fat in your dressing, you’ll miss out. So go for oil and vinegar instead of fat-free ranch.
