This healthy recipe is perfect for making at home or ordering on the go or at a restaurant. But the key to making a salad healthy is selecting the right dressing. Substitute the classic Caesar or other cream-based dressing with balsamic or vinaigrette to stay on track. Also, pay attention to how much salad dressing you are using. An extra tablespoon or two can sabotage an otherwise healthy meal. When dining out, ask for the dressing on the side. With just a few mindful choices, you can avoid hidden calories.
Are you growing tired of your typical morning meal? Add some variety by incorporating oatmeal. Oatmeal is ideal if you are trying to lose or maintain weight. Just remember, it is easy to consume more than the recommended serving size. Pay close attention to the recipe and/or label to make sure you are keeping to a single serving. Also, add a touch of fresh fruit or milk for that little bit of balanced sweetness.
