So on my conquest of fitness… Eating healthy is BORING !!! It can become annoying really fast so i’m trying to switch it up without messing up my diet some I looked up the top healthiest salad dressings and this is what I found.

Wish-Bone Salad Spritzer in Italian Vinaigrette

 

Serving size: 10 spritzes

10 calories

1 g fat (0 g saturated fat)

100 mg sodium

1 g sugar

If you just want a bit of added flavor on your veggies, a Wish-Bone spritzer might be your best option because you have built-in portion control and few calories, says Melissa Joy Dobbins, RD, an instructor at the Kendall College School of Culinary Arts in Chicago. There’s no risk of an additional teaspoon or tablespoon “accidentally” sloshing into your diet greens, and though 10 spritzes doesn’t sound like much, it adds plenty of flavor for a small salad.

Wish-Bone Light Italian

Serving size: 2 tbsp

35 calories

2.5 g fat (0 g saturated fat)

340 mg sodium

2 g sugar

Dobbins likes this dressing, which is based on a blend of olive and soybean oils, because of its inclusion of healthy fat for both heart health and taste. “In general, the healthiest choices are oil and vinegar or a light vinaigrette,” Dobbins says. However, she cautions that it is important to watch your portions because this dressing has a relatively high sodium-per-serving level.

 Kraft Fat-Free Catalina

Serving size: 2 tbsp

50 calories

0 g fat (0 g saturated fat)

350 mg sodium

7 g sugar

At 50 calories, this product has less than half the calories of the full-fat variety, yet retains most of the taste. “With Catalina, you can’t usually tell the difference between lite and fat-free,” Dobbins says, adding that manufacturers know consumers want these products to be flavorful so they have adjusted the recipes accordingly. Catalina dressings in general do have a bit more sugar than other dressings, so don’t forget to pour with some caution.

  Annie’s Balsamic Vinaigrette

Serving size: 2 tbsp

100 calories

10 g fat (1 g saturated fat)

55 mg sodium

2 g sugar

This is a full-fat dressing and has the calories to prove it, but the fat comes from heart-healthy canola oil and the ingredient list is all-natural. “We all need to get some oils,” Caplan says. “You need fat to process vitamin A and vitamin D, which are essential vitamins.” At 100 calories per serving, this dressing is almost too caloric for Caplan, so she advises cutting it with a little vinegar or even water as long as the flavor still satisfies you, or simply have it in 1-tablespoon servings.

  Newman’s Own Low-Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing

Serving size: 2 tbsp

35 calories

15 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat)

330 mg sodium

4 g sugar

A dressing featuring healthy sesame oil, ginger, and other Oriental-style spices will provide you with a tasty break from your healthy salad dressing routine. This one could also be used to flavor steamed veggies or marinate fish, excellent sources of nutrition on any diet. If you eat salads frequently, have several dressings available to keep your taste buds from becoming bored. “I have the belief that you should love what you eat,” Caplan says. “It’s really important.” Trying new flavors can keep you on the diet straight-and-narrow.
