Fat Free Soups & Salads Recipes

              Fat Free Soups & Salads Recipes

Soups & Salads
Soups and salads are rich in fibre. Fruit salad and vegetable soups provides you with vitamins but you need protein too. Soup and salad is the perfect way to lose weight.
To wash gritty greens: Gently swirl in a large bowl of water to loosen any sand or dirt; lift greens from the water to a colander or salad spinner; swirl in two more changes of water to make sure no grit remains. A salad spinner is often a worthwhile investment, as moist salad greens decay faster, and dressings adhere best to dry greens.
To store greens: It is best not to wash leaves before storing because the moisture encourages decay. If greens are sprayed in the market, dry on kitchen towels before wrapping in dry towels and placing in plastic storage bags. Most greens keep in the refrigerator crisper for three to five days.
