I usually post a recipe for some sort of high calorie treat here on Wednesdays, and I do love to bake, but I also know that I struggle with some of the same issues most women do in regard to food. It's a balancing game all day long between exercise and portion control to "earn" the treats.
So, it's a simple thing, but I wanted to show you how I make my lunchtime salad dressing stretch so I can have my dessert tonight!
Most dressings weigh in around 10-14 grams of fat per 2 tablespoons, and to be honest, it's really hard to stretch that 2 tablespoons! Let me show you how you could even get away with 1 tablespoon of dressing for your salad.
Make your salad in a plastic lidded container that is larger than the portion of salad. Squirt your portion of dressing right on top.
Place the lid on top and SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE! (Note: it's very difficult to photograph the process of shaking!)
Place your salad onto a nice plate and sit down to a civilized meal while cursing those darn Real Housewives of NYC.
This salad fills a dinner plate and I actually used 1 tablespoon of dressing, saving me 7 grams of fat (that I can eat in cookies later, shhh!).
