Lately I have been finding myself using more than one serving of salad dressing so by having it on the side of my salad has made me more aware of my intake.
Today’s Tip: Ask for your salad dressing on the side
You can save yourself some calories by asking for dressing on the side of your salad instead of directly on your salad. However you still need to be careful with the portion size of those cups of salad dressing restaurants give because they are way more than a serving but that way YOU can control it instead of someone else. A normal size serving of salad dressing is usually 2 tablespoons so be cautious of your salad dressing intake.

Great tips ladies! I think they will definitely help me with controlling my salad dressing intake. Appreciate the comments.
Enjoy your salads!
It’s amazing how our habits start to slack off at times. This is one I have to check myself with often.
I actually dip the tines lightly in the dressing and then grab my salad. I’ve found that works best for me so I don’t use more than I want to.
