Throw in just about any veggies already in the crisper, especially the crunchy ones. Here’s a combination that guests love at the Pritikin Longevity Center.
Two tablespoons of regular Thousand Island dressing packs in about 120 calories and 300 mg of sodium. Our tasty Pritikin Thousand Island Dressing has just 20 calories and 15 mg of sodium.
Here’s a new favorite at the Pritikin Longevity Center that bursts with flavor (without bursting your blood vessels). Many pickled foods have more sodium than most of us should have for the entire day. This salad, created by Pritikin’s award-winning chef Anthony Stewart, has zero added sodium. Like all the dishes at Pritikin, it is a celebration for both palate and heart. The perfect fit for foodies this fall.
No fat. No salt. No added sugar. Just deep, rich, lip-smacking flavor. Who says healthy salad dressings have to be ho-hum?
Discover the flavors of the islands with one of Chef Anthony’s most popular vinaigrettes. Serve with your favorite salad or simply toss with arugula and strawberries for a delish salad combo.
Watch out for store-bought “light” dressings. They may be light on calories, but sodium counts can be scary. A serving of Wishbone’s Light Italian Dressing, for example, has 340 mg of sodium. That’s the same as a large bag of McDonald’s French Fries! Our Pritikin dressing has 0 sodium.
Start dinner with a big leafy green salad. Toss in other low-calorie-dense delights you may have on hand, like sliced cucumber and tomatoes, and certainly, experiment with more creative season-fresh choices like winter arugula, persimmons, even fruit like pears. The more fresh salad you eat, the less room there is for calorie-dense fare!
Do be mindful of the salad dressing you’re using. It can make or break your weight-loss goals. Pour gobs of fat-laden dressing on a salad and you’re eating the caloric equivalent of a double cheeseburger.
Pritikin’s Horseradish-Balsamic Vinaigrette is very low in calories and so simple to make.
