Trade Up Tuesday: Italian Salad Dressing





Adding a side salad to lunch or dinner can help you get in a serving or two of veggies and take in fewer calories overall which can help you better manage your weight. However, you want to be selective when choosing a salad dressing as this can typically add sugar and fat calories making your healthy salad not-so-healthy anymore. Use NuVal to trade up down the salad dressing aisle. One of my favorites is our Organic brand Full Circle Tuscan Italian. It earns a NuVal score of 12 and is lower in sodium and sugar when compared to similar Italian dressings scoring only a 3.
