Dress it down

It is a fact: Salad greens are good for you. But the dressings, not so much. A lot of dressings are loaded with fat since they are oil or cream based.

So here's a few ways to dress down your salad.

  • Thin creamy dressings, like poppy seed or blue cheese, with non-fat milk.
  • Spray salad with olive oil spray so it is not over dressed.
  • If you are making dressing at home use olive oil or canola oil since they have good monounsaturated fats, and canola oil has omega 3 fatty acids too.
  • Use non-fat salsa as a dressing substitute.
  • If you are ordering a salad out, ask for the dressing on the side.

I have that too, Cravin. I love it! The fork dip works pretty good too. I am lucky, I don't really like lots of dressing, so that saves Lots of calories!

There is a salad spritzer you spray as you eat...1 spray= 1 calorie. I have tried the red wine vinegarette and it is great. I'm all in.
