Fat-free salad dressings

“When asked about fat-free dressings, I always tell my clients that it is better to use the real thing, just less of it,” says Shapiro, who suggests aiming for about 1 to 2 tablespoons. “Research shows that when you eat fat-free foods, you also eat bigger portions. And when removing fat, manufacturers add extra sugar in order to preserve the taste.” “Furthermore, your body needs fat in order to absorb many of the fat-soluble nutrients in salad, such as lycopene from tomatoes, beta carotene from carrots, and vitamin K in leafy greens,” explains Ansel. Full-fat dressing will help you feel fuller for longer, as well as maximize the nutrition from your salad bowl
