Salad Dressing Bottle
You can find plain salad dressing bottles at most department stores. But I found this cool salad dressing recipe bottle at Target. It has several more healthy recipes right on the side of the bottle and convenient volume markings.
Salad Dressing for Weight Loss
Homemade salad dressing is a great alternative to store-bought dressing when it comes to weight loss. Because it gives you total control over the ingredients so you can remove sugar and carbs for a low carb diet. In addition, you’ll notice there is zero sodium, which will help shed pounds of water weight.
It’s important to note the base ingredient in many of these recipes is extra virgin olive oil. This is a healthy fat rich in omegas, but it is still very calorie-dense. So be careful not to over pour! And use a tablespoon to help you measure it out for better portion control if necessary.
