3 Salad Dressings That Are Actually Good for You

Salad Dressing

In almost every case, you should steer clear of store-bought, packaged salad dressings. Simply put, the salad dressings that you find on the grocery store shelves are almost always filled with these fattening, health-derailing ingredients:

Denatured and Trans Fats

Most store-bought salad dressings are made with cheap, denatured, and highly processed fats. If you see vegetable oil, canola oil, or soybean oil on the ingredient list, steer clear! These damaged fats can and will wreak havoc on your health and your waistline.

Added Sugar

Store-bought salad dressing is notorious for including added sugar, including the #1 worst form, man-made high-fructose corn syrup.

Artificial Ingredients, Colors, Preservatives, and Sweeteners

These man-made, unnatural ingredients are found in nearly every dressing, especially “light” or “low-calorie” dressings. Often marketed as healthy or as a good choice for those looking to drop flab, these waist-expanding ingredients won’t get you any closer to your fat loss goals, and they can have adverse effects your health to boot.
