Leego Posted September 28, 2015 Report Share Posted September 28, 2015 So, I decided to try a salad bowl from my school today. It wasn't the best salad I ever had, but it was only 382 calories, supposedly, and not only was it pretty good, but it actually made me feel full, and one bowl = one serving, if I understand correctly. Of course, my choice in dressing probably cranked it up to 622 calories. Ouch. I've got to be more careful in my choice of dressing. But what I realized is that, I don't exactly hate salads. I used to think salads were kind of bullshit nonsense stuff people eat when they try to be more healthy to feel healthy, but honestly, I feel quite sated right now, and if it wasn't for the dressing, it would have only (supposedly) been 382 calories for 347 grams, and it was a good source of vegetables of all kinds, as well as protein. Tomatoes aren't as gross when they're mixed with other things. So, I am thinking of making salads, if it means having a filling and decent-lasting meal that gives me everything my body needs with low calories, being able to carry my meal with me more easily, and if it's easy to prepare. So then I decided to google Cracked Salad. I was originally trying to find a Cracked.com article on salads, maybe a salad joke, but instead, I came across this: http://www.madebythechef.com/kisir-bulgur-cracked-wheat-salad-recipe/ To me, this looks and sounds delicious, but it doesn't seem like the kind of salad I would expect to be "healthy". Just something about how it looks reminds me of something else. I know some people around here believe in avoiding grains, but personally, I find it hard to stay away from grains. I don't have anything against grains. I think a little bit of the right kind of grain goes along nicely with the right kind of protein and vegetable. So, if not this salad, I want to know, are there salads out there that are filling, healthy, and good-tasting that are 500 calories or less? What's your favorite low-calorie dressing?
