Deceptively Fattening Foods in Your Supermarket Cart
Here's why you should be wary of salad kits in a bag and other seemingly healthy items. Plus, one "junk food" that really isn't so bad after all.
Salads Kits in a Bag
Somer says bottled salad dressing is one of the top sources of fat in women's diets, and it turns out that a little pouch of the stuff—even if it is surrounded by great big handfuls of fresh, crisp greens—can be extremely high in calories and fat. For instance, 1 serving of a Caesar-salad kit—which comes with shaved cheeses, roasted-garlic croutons and dressing—can contain 180 calories and 14 grams of fat. You don't have to avoid the dressing entirely, but it would be wise to use it sparingly.
