Yummy Lunch...A Big Fat Salad
For lunch we always have a nice big salad. Doesn't that look awesome?....loaded with lots of raw vegetables and I like to add Mandarin oranges and dried cranberries to mine...they make it so good. DD skips the fruit in her salads but loves to add a hard boiled egg. We usually load up on many different leafy greens in our salads, like spinach, arugula, romaine, and some sort of artisan or organic mixed greens. Topped with broccoli, carrots, jicama, kidney beans, eggs, green onions, red onions, celery, red and green bell peppers, cauliflower, sunflower seeds ....well you get the idea....anything we have in the fridge.
I have found a great dressing called Galeos. They have a couple of flavors but the one I enjoy is the Miso Sesame Seed dressing. 2 Tablespoons is only 50 Calories with 3% fat and 0% saturated fat, and 6% sodium. Woo Hoo.....this stuff is Gold!
DD enjoys the Eating Right dressings from Safeway. We haven't been able to find the Ranch lately...but the Fresh Garlic Caesar is 70 calories for 2 tablespoons, 4% fat, 3% saturated fat and 10% sodium...which is awesome for a salad dressing!
Have you looked at the label for your favorite dressing? How does it stack up and what good ones do you recommend? We would love to hear from you. -A
