I recently grew a lot of salad in my garden and starting eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner with some other foods on the side. I found a felt full with a bunch of salad because it crowded out other foods I would eat instead. I lost six pounds in one week and am still losing.
I use a homemade salad dressing by Nataila Rose Chili Lime Dressing and Annie's Natural's Goddess dressing light
When I eat salad instead of a salad dressing I dip my salad in my soup or chili! Or I put a little bit of the broth on top if I'm not in the mood for dipping. I make my soup so it's a great way to reduce those dressing calories and enjoy your salad in a different way.
