I use thawed frozen veggies or pop them in the microwave and throw them together with leafy greens. It saves me time and makes for a heartier salad. (I don't like too many raw veggies, so this allows me to enjoy salads!)

Seriously just eat a salad right away. It will help you digest and feel more virtuous too. What's that, you ate raw choc chip cookie dough? Eat a salad. You ate a Big Mac? Eat a salad. You ate the rest of the Girl Scout cookies? Say it with me now, "eat a salad!" 306
Hello fellow Sparkies! Something to try: instead of pouring your salad dressing on your salad, try pouring it into a different (smaller) container...when you go to eat your salad, dip your fork into the container with each bite. This way you are eating WAY less calories, fat, carbs...etc. because you aren't 'drowning' your salad in the dressing, but still getting the good taste with every bite :)
