Product Spotlight - Bolthouse Farms Yogurt Dressings

One of the go-to meals when trying to lose weight is always some type of salad.  Personally I love making salads into a meal by adding hearty ingredients like fruits, nuts, beans and an array of fresh veggies.  You do need to watch out for hidden calories, or that healthy salad that you thought you were having can turn into a calorie laden whopper of a meal.  Dressings are the biggest source of fat and calories, with the creamy varieties packing well over 100 calories per 2 tablespoon serving with most of those calories coming from fat.  You can save calories with reduced fat versions, but they typically make up for the fat with sugars.  Even vinaigrette dressing have about 70 calories per serving.

Plain vinegar or citrus juices are nice lo-cal options, but to satisfy that creamy craving check out Bolthouse Farms Yogurt Dressings.  There are 7 varieties in all.  I've tried the 3 shown above and will never go back to traditional creamy dressings.  Flavor and texture are all quite delicious.  They're great for salads, to serve as dip or to use in recipes.  They have 35 to 45 calories per 2 tablespoon serving with about half of the calories coming from fat.  They definitely turn deprivation into guilt-free indulgence!
