When is a salad not a healthy part of a well-balanced diet? When the dressing is loaded with bad fats, added sugar and empty calories, not to mention offensive levels of sodium and preservatives.
Keep your waistline in check by making your own tasty salad dressings from scratch with these fat-incinerating salad dressing ingredients:
All-natural Dijon mustard can have a profound effect on metabolism, even at rest, and it also improves overall digestion and nutrient utilization, so your body can make the most of the leafy greens and vitamin-packed veggies in your salads.
Apple cider vinegar aids in weight loss by detoxifying the liver, increasing metabolism and suppressing hunger levels.
White and red wine vinegars have been shown to improve blood sugar levels, reduce insulin and slow digestion.
Garlic helps to cleanse the blood, thereby lowering cholesterol, can boost your immunity to prevent colds and it tastes great too.
Lemon and other citrus juices also have cleansing properties, act as a natural antihistamine and add a bright burst of flavor to your salad dressings.
Herbs and spices such as ginger, cayenne, basil, parsley and thyme have been shown to have significant metabolism-boosting properties. They stimulate your taste buds while adding next to no calories!
The fact is, when you learn how to cook with the right ingredients, you can really begin to enjoy both the fat-burning properties and the ultimate flavor of the foods you use to slim your waist.
And that’s exactly what Dave and Karine have put together in the Metabolic Cooking series: more than 250 mouth-watering, fat-annihilating recipes for you to choose from. And of course, they include many fat-burning salad dressing recipes!
