Instead of: Ranch salad dressing
Enjoy: Vinaigrette

Ranch may be the clear favorite when it comes to dressing your greens, but there’s a good reason to give a little more thought to your topping of choice. All types of vinegar can help slow the absorption of carbs at mealtimes and prevent blood sugar spikes, according to some small studies. It may not work for everyone, but it’s certainly worth a shot, as vinegar provides a hit of flavor while being naturally low in carbohydrates, sodium and calories.
