We were able to keep the calories in this chicken spinach salad low, with these tips and tricks for low calorie salads.

Low Calorie Salad Tips:

  • Make Your Own Salad Dressing! Most salad dressings at the store are packed full of oil, sugar, and preservatives. Make your own and save 100’s of calories, and lots of fat!
  • Add the 4 Main Salad Groups: Fat (cheese or avocado), Crunch (walnuts), Protein (chicken or tofu), and Interesting Flavors (strawberries and homemade vinaigrette). This will ensure you have a delicious salad, and won’t go back for snacks later.
  • Get Raw Nuts… Don’t get candied nuts for your salads. I know the big chain restaurants use them and they are super yummy. But they add unneeded calories and you likely won’t notice the difference.
