Beware of Salad Dressing


An otherwise healthy salad can become a diet disaster if it's loaded with fatty dressing. To avoid this pitfall, try this trick: Ask for your dressing on the side, and dip your fork into the dressing before loading it up with a bite of salad. You'll still get the taste of salad dressing on every bite, but will consume only a fraction of what you are given.

Another sure-fire way to nutritionally ruin a salad is to add fatty, unhealthy toppings like bacon, cheese, croutons, and fried food. Load it up with fresh veggies, grilled toppings, and a lighter dressing, like olive oil and vinegar, instead.

Variety is the spice of life! Swap out boring sandwiches for simple and healthy alternatives, like crackers and cheese, veggie or fruit kebabs, pasta salad, or breakfast for lunch (such as yogurt and granola, or whole wheat waffles).
