ZumeWalking and Eating Healthy
Summers are a great time for dinner salads, however be careful what you put ON them!! You may think you’re eating healthfully, but actually loading up on fat and sodium unless you watch the dressing. Below are some healthy dressings and also keep in mind, squeezed lemon on salads, fat free cottage cheese INSTEAD of dressing, grilled peach instead of dressing (the juice will do the trick) and many more ideas!
MEDITERRANEAN COUSCOUS SALAD:
1 cup whole wheat couscous
¼ cup lemon juice and olive oil, mixed
2 large chopped and seeded tomatoes
½ cup sliced green onions
1 package reduced fat feta cheese
*Mix couscous, lemon juice and olive oil. Add tomatoes and green onions and cover before refrigerating a min. of 4 hours. Stir in cheese just before serving.
Great on top of spinach salad, or filling for a whole wheat pita, or as a side with grilled chicken.
