You skip the bacon bits and shredded cheese, but are these common salad toppings sabotaging your healthy-eating efforts?
Fat-Free and Low-Fat Salad Dressing When it comes to reading salad dressing labels, take the marketing claims ("Low fat!" "Low calorie!") with a grain of salt -- no pun intended. Swap it: Create your own dressings using vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil, and add avocado slices for a healthy source of fat.


While fat-free and low-fat salad dressings are lower in calories, the absence of fat inhibits the body's ability to absorb your salad's nutrients. You can also mix up your salad dressing flavors by squeezing on some fresh citrus juice or herbs.
Carotenoids (the powerful antioxidants found in carrots, bell peppers, and green leafy vegetables) are fat-soluble, which means they require dietary fat for proper absorption in the body.


By pairing your salad with a fat-free or low-fat dressing, you're skipping out on beneficial vitamins and doing yourself a disservice in the long run.
