When you think of healthy eating options, a salad is probably the first image that comes to mind. And most salads are, in fact, healthy. That said, you should really be careful about the dressing you are using, which can seriously sabotage the health of your food. Salad dressings are a great hidden source of sugar and unhealthy oils such as soybean oil, corn oil and canola oil.

Do you want it to be simple and make sure you are not overcoming your healthy meal with something unhealthy? Next time you are at the salad bar, ask for olive oil, a little lemon and salt and pepper. If you are eating at home, opt for homemade dressings, try one of these fresh and easy salad dressing recipes, rather than store-bought ones. They know better and you will know exactly what is happening in them.
