Iceberg lettuce has a bad reputation. Which is a shame! So, here are some reasons why you should invite iceberg back into your healthy eating plan.
Once in a while I have a taste for full fat dressing and I just can't bring myself to eat a whole serving and take the hit from the fat and the calories! So, I get half the serving size and add that same amount of water to it. I mix it up on a little saucer and pour it over my salad. My sister thinks it's gross, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. If restaurants can do it and get away with it so can I!
Instead of pouring salad dressing on your food, just dip the tips of the tines of your fork in the dressing before you stick the fork in the salad. This way, you'll have the flavor of the dressing in each bite while saving a lot of calories that your salad would normally be swimming in.
I use one of those plastic condiment squeeze bottles with a narrow tip for my salad dressings. Even my kids can use the bottle without squirting too much out onto the salad. It saves TONS of calories and fat by squeezing out a smaller stream. This saves money too!
Make up all your salad ingredients. Put them in a ZipLock bag then pour a tablespoon of dressing (Vinegar & Oil mixes are best) then zip up the baggie and shake. All the ingredients are covered and you have used maybe a tablespoon of dressing. All the ingredients get covered.
