Imperial, California (NAPSI) - Eating a more nutritious diet and maintaining a healthy weight may have more to do with what you add to your daily routine than what you subtract. Adding salad dressings and mayonnaise to your menu could help you achieve your goals.
Many diets cut calories at the expense of flavor, so it’s hard to stay motivated. A smarter way to stick to your goals may involve including more vegetables in your diet and using dressings to add a tempting dollop of tasty flavor.
For example, salad is delicious and nutritious. Salad eaters tend to have higher intakes of essential nutrients such as vitamins C and E and folic acid.
Adding a variety of flavorful dressings can add to the appeal of eating salad every day.
The healthy oils found in many salad dressings can help the body to better absorb key nutrients.
Mayonnaise can also be part of a well-balanced diet, as it’s made with healthy oils and contains omega-3 fatty acids.
You can use salad dressings as dips, while mayonnaise adds terrific flavor to deviled eggs, sandwiches and deli salads.
If you must count calories, there are a number of reduced-fat and light options of salad dressings and mayonnaise available.
