Salad Love

I love salads! Salads with fruit, salads with veggies, you name it, I love it! I want to share my most recent fabulous find! A friend of mine shared this with me, and I can’t stop eating it!
You will need:
·        2 tbsp. Olive oil
·        1 tbsp.Honey
·        2 tsp. Lemon
·        1 clove Garlic
·        4 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar
·        Sliced Apple
·        Crumbled goat cheese
·        Grapes sliced
·        Almonds
·        Dried cranberries


Salads are a wonderful way to fill up, with a small calorie price tag! My advice is to order a salad before your meal or make a wonderful  salad to take to a party! But remember the rules!
·         Limit your dried fruits and nuts!
·         Look for low calorie dressing and go light on the cheeses!
·         Pile high the veggies and fruits!
·         Avoid high calories meats, and look for lean chicken or fish instead!

Salads can be a great tool to help you lose or maintain a healthy weight, but if you don’t watch your dressing and topping it can actually slow down your weight loss efforts!
