Happy Hump day peeps!!
Is it me or is the week moving fast?? It could be me. This will be the first weekend in 3 weeks that I have off and I can't wait! I have a 5k Saturday morning and then afterwards we are going to brunch. After that get my mani/pedi and then a birthday dinner. Honestly I might skip out on the dinner though...
Salad dressing, love it...hate it. I am one of those people who could eat a salad everyday whether it be a side or my whole meal b/c I make a kitchen sink salad. My salads have every veggie I have in my fridge...carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, red onions, mushrooms sometimes cucumbers, recently cut out the cheese and topped with slivered almonds or sunflower seeds. Well what tops my salad?? Glorious Blue Cheese. Forget ranch, thousand island, french, catalina, vinaigrette, pass me the damn blue cheese. Until recently I liked salad with my blue cheese. My coworkers used to refer to my salads as a blue cheese bowl. It took me a while to realize the dressing was negating my healthy salads. I have been working on using the actual portion size, but when I make my big salads portion size doesn't work. Not enough salad dressing. What do you do about that? So in counting my calories, I have paying attention to calories in a serving size of salad dressing. Depending on which brand I use that day a serving size of blue cheese dressing can run from 100-160 calories. Since I started counting calories it almost seems crazy to spend 160 calories on basically a condiment. I've tried vinaigrettes and I haven't been able to find one that I like. I even forced myself to eat vinaigrette dressing on my salad for a week but all it made me do was me not look forward to the meal where I had salad. So I need help...What salad dressing do you all use? I need to find something soon, so I don't bleed blue cheese dressing!
Happy Hump day!
