Thanks! I had the idea of using yogurt, but I never know what spices and herbs to combine for a tasty dressing. I guess I'm just too "old-school" to eat salad without a dressing or with just lemon juice.

a little lemon juice makes a good salad dressing. plus herbs and spices. with some of the more flavorful salad greens, like dill and arugula, dressing becomes much less important.

there are some yoghurt-based dressing recipes too,if you prefer a creamy type. mix in finely chopped green onions and cucumbers and optional herbs and seasonings

I hear ya'! Every year, back in the 60's, I had to correct the new teacher that my name was Jody and not Judy. I felt so awkward saying it. Now that the name is more common, I kind of like it. Now it fits me.

You're welcome, Jody. As for my name, I didn't like it as a kid, since I couldn't get personalized "stuff", but after all these years, it has grown on me:)

Thanks Cyndie! I will keep it in mind. I like the way your name is spelled. It's unique.

Jody, I am also on a team called Clean Eating & Recipes. You might like that one as they post a lot of recipes and cookbooks.

Thanks Ladies! Perhaps I'll see you there, on the Eating Clean team, as soon as I get organized. What I'm trying to find are some "Tasty", "Lower Calorie", and "Clean" or good for me, recipes for salad dressing. I love salad, but I tend to over drench it in salad dressing, causing the calorie count to soar. I can't accept just having a tiny bit of dressing. I found some reduced fat dressing by Kens Steak House that I love, but when you look at the label or log it into the food tracker, you discover it's loaded with tons of bad stuff. Everything from high sodium to high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils. Not to mention all the ingredients I can't begin to pronounce.

The Eating Clean team is more active than this one. I like it pretty well. I just recently became more active in that team, so I am still getting into things.

Jody, I just joined this team a month ago. Unfortunately, it has inactive leaders, so there isn't much going on.

Angie, how do you like the Eating Clean team. I have thought of maybe joining that one and leaving this one. I'm in a couple of teams that don't even have a leader. I'm thinking of leaving all the teams I don't even post in.

Cyndie, have you been with this team for long?

JODY-S - you are right! There is the Eating Clean group. I am a member of that one too!

Thanks for responding to me! I hope you are able to get out of your plateau! Spark has some great Plateau busters.

Angie, I hate to say it, but I haven't seen much activity on this team since I joined several months ago. I became interested when I read a magazine article featuring the basics of The Eat Clean Diet Recharged book. I tried to find used books from the series but could not. I broke down and bought it at Meijers about a month ago. I like the premise but it's a lot of work, and I miss some of the prepared foods and sweets.

You sound a little like me. I just recently got serious again about trying to lose this weight. I too have been here about 3 years. I joined a local team and set a goal to lose my first 28 pounds by 1-1-11. I started out great but my weight loss has stalled for about 3 weeks now.

I think there is another group called Eating Clean, that is more active. I came across it while visiting someones SparkPage. Good Luck on meeting your goals.

Wow! It has been such a long time since I have joined a new group! I have been a member of SparkPeople for almost 3 years now.

I have basically just been coasting along, not taking things too seriously, but recently I have been trying to motivate myself more. I want to loose this weight!

This morning I was listening to my favorite radio station (94.5 The Buzz in Houston, Tx) and Tosca Reno was on talking about her new book "Your Best Body Now" and I became very interested. When I got to work I picked it up (Barnes & Noble Nook-Book... Gotta love the "Have/Want" Era! lol). I am going to look for a used copy of the Eat Clean Diet books at my 1/2 Price Books this weekend, but I am starting today!!
