LETTUCE RETHINK YOUR SALAD

Believe it or not, salad can often be one of the biggest pitfalls to your diet.  Cheese, high calorie salad dressings, fatty meats, croutons…all can be sabotages to your carefully planned veggies.

Why not keep your veggies simple, freshly chunked, and leave off the lettuce so that only a little dressing is needed for flavor?  This saves calories for a serving of cheese, and pairs well with any lean protein for a balanced, nutritious meal.

Cucumbers, carrots, peppers, scallions, avocado, pre-cut cauliflower & broccoli, and roma tomatoes are all fast and easy to prep and eat.  Even added apples, pears, or strawberries will boost your flavors without wrecking your diet.

Take a minute for your veggies…if you carrot all.
