After the festive season, it’s a great idea to get right back into fresh and wholesome healthy eating salads for your meals.
Salads are a great way to pack in lots of fresh veggies, and you can be sure to add some delicious flavours by making your own tasty dressings.
The salad dressings that you can buy from the supermarket tend to be loaded with sugar, oil, cream or mayonnaise – not exactly ideal when you are trying to lose weight after pregnancy.
By making your own from scratch, you can leave out the nasties that could derail your weight loss and focus on packing in as much flavour as possible.
A classic Caesar Salad isn’t usually known as a healthy option, but this lighter version can be on your healthy eating plan as it goes easy on the richer ingredients.
There’s no bacon, no mayo, wholemeal bread instead of white, less cheese, less oil – but still so much flavour that you won’t feel as though you are missing out at all.
