Weight Loss Tip: You do not have to eat a plain salad all the time. You should avoid heavy dressings like Ranch dressing but you do not have to suffer through a salad of plain vegetables. Try adding a bean dip to your salad. You will benefit from the beans and it will make the salad taste much better.
