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.
