Loose Leaves, Sink Hips!

A dieter’s dream, Green Leaf Lettuce, is extremely low in calories, with only about 15 calories per a 12 oz. serving. This lettuce is a powerhouse vegetable, containing a high source of fiber, essential vitamins C and K, lutein and potassium.

Salads can be low or very high in calories depending on what toppings are added and most particularly our choice of dressings. Salad dressings with a mayonnaise or sour cream base, such as ranch, blue cheese or thousand island, typically have a much higher calorie count than dressings with an oil and vinegar base such as Italian dressing. Try adding extra flavor with fresh herbs, squeezed fresh lemon juice, a touch of minced garlic and olive oil for a tasty, satisfying meal that is also low in calories.
