Guys. I do not get excited about food very often. (Unless it's a Costco triple chocolate muffin—which is so calorically dense that I can have one about once a decade.) But this stuff is the real deal. I'm in love. Skinnygirl salad dressings are the best thing I've found during this (latest) diet process. I use them almost every day. (I've tried Walden Farms and other low calories dressings and I just do not like the taste. Kind of tinny or chemical tasting to me.)
Last night I took a bottle to Olive Garden in my purse, ate it on two entire bowls of their salad (minus the croutons), had one breadstick and the shrimp scampi, was totally stuffed, and stayed within my 1200 calories. (The one good thing about restaurant chains is that you can easily find their nutrition facts.) Take that, MyFitnessPal.
Here's why I love SkinnyGirl. The dressings are fat free and sugar free. Yes, both. They are super low calorie—as in 5–10 calories per two tablespoons. That is not a typo. Most light salad dressings have 60–80 calories per two tablespoons. And, here's the kicker. This stuff actually tastes good. Here are the flavors I've tried and like:
- Raspberry Vinaigrette
- Honey Dijon
- Balsamic Vinaigrette
- Poppyseed (my favorite)
It also comes in a newer ranch flavor, but I'm not a fan. Love all those listed above.
So if you're looking for a way to make salads actually diet compliant, here's my secret. Skip the regular dressing and grab some of these. I would love to hear what you think!
