Is there something you eat often that you have learned to cut the calories on? What works best for you? Do you have something you can share with us?
~~Salad dressing has often been an issue for me. I love a thick creamy dressing. Most often I would grab a Caesar dressing, but the calories in that are so very high. I tried many of the "light" or "free" varieties and ... yuck. A few months ago I found a roasted red pepper Italian that is really good and much lower in calories, however, being a new raw foodie, and one who is paying more attention to what is in the foods I buy, checking out the ingredients list on the red pepper dressing was disappointing. I do not like eating preservatives or other additives that I really don't know what they are or why they are in my food. So, being the spicy, Mexican food lover that I am, I just started using salsa on my salads. Even with some bought salsas... I recognize all listed ingredients, and they are good... plus, salsa is even lower in calories than my previous "find!" :)
