Limit The Salad Dressing, When Eating Out Or At Home.

This Sparked Me!

I order salad as a main course when eating out and it is a meal for me at home. I limit the amount of salad dressing I use by ordering it on the side and using my fork to dip into the dressing then into the salad, it really cuts the calories from crossing you lips and to the tummy.

    I do the same thing but only when ordering high-fat dressings like caesar. Most places do not offer any low-fat options for dressing so I dip my fork in the caesar dressing and it's just enough for the taste! At home I use light dressings that are less than 60 calories per 2 tbsp. If you get an oil-based dressing 2 tbsp goes a LONG way!
