A Real Calorie Bomb: Top 3 Ingredients That Will Ruin Any Salad and Make it Unhealthy

What not to add to a salad so as not to spoil it?

A delicious and healthy salad can be ruined by just one ingredient. To ensure that you benefit from the dish rather than harm it, we advise you to learn three foods that you should absolutely not add to your salad.

Each of us is used to making salads with mayonnaise, adding a lot of butter or nuts. Such salads only make the dish heavier, and you will not get any benefit from them.

To avoid turning the salad into a real calorie bomb, do not season it with fatty sauces.

What not to add to any salad

Cheese. Hard cheese contains a lot of calories. Often, harmful flavors are added to cheeses. To make the salad healthy, add only feta cheese or feta cheese.

Fried meat and fruit. All warm salads, of course, are prepared with fried foods, but you will not get any benefit from them. Chicken, bacon, pork. In addition, caramelized pears or apples will not benefit the dish either.

Salad dressings. All sauces, mayonnaise (even homemade), and salad dressings will only harm your body. You will only get “extra sides”.

What can be used to dress a salad for good

  • Lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Olive oil
