healthy-salad-dressings

It happens to all of us – we start our diet plan and load our meal plan with healthy salads. But then we smother them with fattening dressings that are filled with calories, preservatives, sugar, and of course, fat. Instead of sabotaging a plate of nutritious greens and veggies with that heavy bottled ranch dressing, try one of these healthy salad dressings!

Cilantro Lime Dressing

So cilantro is known as one of those “cleaning” herbs, taking all of the funky stuff out of your body. It works to extract things like heavy metals and other toxins. This herb is also very low in calories and contains no cholesterol, which we love! And besides adding some great flavor to this dressing, its deep-green leaves possess good amounts of antioxidants, essential oils, vitamins, and dietary fiber. Those are things we all need more of! Enjoy them all in this delicious healthy salad dressing, or even drizzle it on fish and chicken – yummmmm!

Green Goddess

You will definitely feel like a goddess after indulging in this delicious and nutritious salad dressing. What makes this dressing creamy is the combo of Greek yogurt and buttermilk. Did you know that buttermilk not only tastes good, but soothes the stomach after a spicy meal, boosts your calcium intake, lowers cholesterol, reduces blood pressure and even prevents cancer. Wow! And the herbs in this dressing are full of nutrients too. Tarragon helps lower blood sugar and also prevents heart attack and stroke, and of course it tastes delicious added to this healthy salad dressing!

Honey Pomegranate Dressing

This dressing is on the sweet side and tastes delicious on a salad, chicken, or even over chopped fruit! Honey is one of the stars of this dressing and it is shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, energize the body, boost immunity, and fight bacteria. And the pretty pomegranates have their own list of health benefits. They have no cholesterol, but do contain high levels of flavonoids and polyphenols, which are potent antioxidants that give your body protection against heart disease and cancer. We’ll take it!

Chia Yogurt Dressing

Chia is definitely gaining popularity as the latest health food craze and it’s easy to see why. In these tiny little seeds, you get a powerful dose of fiber, protein, Omega 3s, and they help stave off hunger. And that’s always good for your weight loss plan! These seeds are paired with Greek yogurt, which also has a great amount of protein and B12 vitamins to give your body the nutrients it needs. This dressing is great over a fruit salad, paired with chicken, or even with some granola for a sweet snack. Any way you have it, you’re definitely getting loads of nutrients and delicious flavor!

So stop pouring unhealthy dressing all over your food and use some of these recipes to jazz up your salads and meals today. Your body will thank you!
