Secrets of Success

Have Salad As The Main Course



When salad is your main course instead of a side dish, you can put lots of stuff in it (including full fat dressing) and it still winds up having a lower calorie count than many cooked meals, plus the portions are huge. Salads with plenty of fat and protein are very filling and they actually taste good.

More Information:

Here is one of my favorites. It makes two portions.

Pepperoni Salad
1 bag butter blend lettuce - 20 cal.
1/4 cup crumbled feta - 100 cal.
1/4 cup pepperocini- 5 cal.
30 slices turkey pepperoni- 160 cal.
4 T full fat balsamic vinaigrette- 200 cal.

Each serving (half the salad) is 245 calories.
