Salad Days

Greek Salad

Calories: 210 Fat: 18 grams

Olive oil in the dressing and feta cheese have some fat, sure, but the oil is the healthy monounsaturated kind. Cucumber slices, onions, and peppers fill you up while providing vitamins A and C and fiber.

VS.

Caesar Salad

Calories: 400 Fat: 34 grams

Thanks to the Parmesan cheese croutons, and mayo based dressing, an entree portion delivers more than half the fat you should consume per day. Romane lettuce  is low in calories but it doesn’t deliver many nutrients.
