My main solution to this problem has been to switch to lower calorie dressings. I enjoy many different vinaigrettes, but sometimes I'm really in the mood for a creamy ranch dressing. A little internet searching and I found this higher calorie recipe to tweak.
A low calorie ranch dressing that is healthy and delicious? Yes, it is possible. The big switch in the recipe was replacing the mayonnaise with non-fat plain yogurt. The exciting thing about this deliciously fresh tasting recipe is that it is only 30 calories per 2 tablespoon serving.
1 C non-fat plain yogurt
1/2 C sour cream
2 T skim milk*
1 tsp. finely minced or grated onion
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. dried dill weed
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. salt (I used kosher salt)
1/8 tsp. pepper
Mix all together and store in the refrigerator.
*For a thicker dressing, omit the milk. For thinner dressing, add more milk.
