LATER SALADS

As long as you don’t apply the salad dressing, salads can be made ahead and saved for later. Simply assemble the salad minus the dressing, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate till ready to dress and eat. We often do this. Sometimes we don’t want a salad now, but know we’ll want one later, whileContinue reading “LATER SALADS”

EXTENDING A FAT-FREE BOTTLED DRESSING

Bottled dressings are expensive. And how many salads does one bottle dress? Not many. Why not use them as an ingredient in alt-dressings and dips/spreads, rather than using what comes straight from the bottle? Doctor them up to your tastes, extend them while reducing the calorie and fat content!! Works for me! Makes 2-1/2 cups

Lowering Calories In Bottled Dressing

How to lower calories in bottled dressing? Simply add vinegar. I use Balsamic vinegar that has no calories and add about a third of a whole bottle, shake and use. I usually wait till the bottle is a third gone, but I could just as easily pour it into a bowl, add the vinegar, thenContinue reading “Lowering Calories In Bottled Dressing”

THE PRUNE

Winter Tomatoes Got You Down?

Why worry about the high price of winter tomatoes and unripened, flavorless choices, when grapes are on sale. That’s right, substitute grapes for tomatoes in any salad. It’s a nice switch from the traditional tomatoes that we seem to add to every salad we make, just because it’s a salad. Even Lilly Belle says yes!Continue reading “Winter Tomatoes Got You Down?”

MOTT’S Granny Smith Applesauce = DIET FOOD

A six-pack of unsweetened granny smith applesauce = DIET FOOD to me. 3.9 oz. per container = 23.4 ounces for the whole six-pack. That’s a lot. You could eat all six containers and still only be at 300 calories plus no fat. I don’t know why I don’t buy applesauce more often, because I reallyContinue reading “MOTT’S Granny Smith Applesauce = DIET FOOD”

Japanese Hot Dog

The Japanese hold onto their soy sauce like we do our ketchup. Almost. We don’t put ketchup on everything, just some things. And we have a wider variety of dipping sauces than they do. I’d like to think that the Japanese don’t require soy sauce with everything, but how would I know? Even living inContinue reading “Japanese Hot Dog”

Grapefruit As Appetite Suppressant = Diet Food

Suppress Appetite Grapefruit works as an excellent appetite suppressant as compared to many other foods. It is said that smell of the grapefruit reduces the feeling of hunger, which is the reason why people often include grapefruits in their weight loss programs. The high amounts of fiber in these fruits can also satisfy hunger, help people avoid overeating, and stimulate cholecystokinin to be released, a hormone that regulates digestive juices and acts as aContinue reading “Grapefruit As Appetite Suppressant = Diet Food”
