If you want to lose weight, picking the right salad dressing can make all the difference.
Choose vinaigrettes or make your own with olive oil and vinegar. They add taste without a lot of calories or fats that are bad for you.
You can make your own dips with hummus or Greek yogurt instead of getting store-bought ones that are high in calories.
These options give you protein and nutrients without changing the taste of the dip, so you can enjoy it without the extra calories.
Making soups at home that are full of vegetables and lean protein can help you reach your weight-loss goals.
It's great to drink soup because it keeps you hydrated and full. To finish off the meal, add a protein-packed salad or burger.
If you make it right, popcorn can be a guilt-free snack, believe it or not.
Instead of buttery and highly salted popcorn, choose air-popped popcorn that has herbs or nutritional yeast added to it.
