When trying to eat a healthy diet, a lot of us rely on salads to keep us on track. After all, they’re easy, quick, super versatile and of course, delicious.
What most people don’t realize however, is that salads can also be your biggest diet saboteur. And to avoid that, all you have to do is follow these two simple steps:
1) Don’t drench them in heavy, fat and sugar laden store bought dressings (tough one, I know, but home made dressing is well worth the 5 minutes that it will take to make it, believe me!)
2) Watch your toppings ( not every single crunchy snack that lives in your pantry needs to go on it!)
And if you think that following steps 1 & 2 will make your salad boring, tasteless and impossible to enjoy, we’re here to prove you wrong.
- Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Add dressing right before serving
