Have Salad As The Main Course

This Sparked Me!

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.

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.
