Is this Emoticon a salad? I can't tell. But if it isn't, why the heck doesn't SparkPeople have a salad Emoticon???
As part of my renewed effort to lose weight, I now am not using any salad dressing on my salads.
What I had forgotten from when I did this about 2 years ago, is the reaction you get when you tell a waiter that you want no dressing. So far, I have heard, "Really? Are you serious?" "So, you are eating like a rabbit now?" "How about a little something on the side."
That last comment made me laugh because it came from a very nice looking waitress and it was a struggle not to make some comment about it.
But the best part of having no dressing on my salad is that I now get the full taste of all the salad ingredients. Some of which, like olives and tomatoes, keep the salad from being too dry and I really am enjoying this weight saving measure.
Which is not to say that I will not get blue cheese dressing (on the side) once I hit my goal weight. But I think I will be using less of it than I once did.
