It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that all salads are healthy, but if they contain lots of high-fat ingredients they may well contain more calories than a steak and fries!
Croutons, crispy bacon, mayonnaise and oily dressings are us
ually the worst offenders. They considerably boost
calorie, fat and salt content of salads, but add few vitamins and minerals, making them a poor choice for slimmers. And while cheese and nuts contain more nutrients, they can still add a lot of calories to a salad!
