Smile A salad tip

if you're like me and can't stick to eating salads with vinaigrette-type dressings every day, and want a more creamy-ceasar-ranch dressing-like, i have found that using tzatziki dip works well. most are around 22/23 calories per tablespoon. i usually use spinach for the salad, and have a side of low fat cottage cheese. the entire meal is around 135 calories (i add some yellow peppers for more flavor). i try to eat this low-cal meal for lunch/dinner so i can be a little more lenient with my calories for the other meal. it is also pretty satisfying!

I love salads with all colors of veggies like celery, kale, broccoli, lettuce, spinach, carrots, cucumber etc. There are many varieties of salads I take in my weekly meal plans. They all are of limited calories.

Good tip on the tzatziki dip - I love it. Sometimes I use mild salsa as my salad dressing.

Sherry vinegar, champagne vinegar, seasoned rice wine vinegar - I'm finding that I'm happy using some vinegars alone (without oil) on salads, fish, vegetables. Many have a higher sugar content than plain vinegar, so you have to watch that.
