I make Caesar dressing using WF mayo, lemon juice, Dijon, chopped garlic, dash of Worcestershire and cracked black pepper. Coats the lettuce great! I do miss croutons tho. Before IP I only ate 3 vegetables. Losing carrots just about killed me. I live on celery and I am slowing growing my repertoire of choices.

Default lettuce...hmmm....

if it's a texture issue maybe you can shred it up really fine? or perhaps use it as a wrap for other food rather than a bowl of lettuce? Maybe even cook it, although I haven't tried that.


Oh and for an alternative texture for other things...more specifically cucumber or zuchs....try peeling with a julienne peeler. Someone else was talking about it on here and peeling and cooking with the peeled veg is kinda noodle like in texture and look

Anyone have a good substitute for ranch? It's one of the few things I miss, I have ranch seasoning from Allison's pantry in a large 2lb bag because I love ranch on salad and veggies but it sits waiting lol, it's got buttermilk powder in it which is the only thing that concerns me about it... but I'd love a ranch alternative.

I do this for breakfast and lunch.

I have heard other people use other drinks and then add lettuce and blend in the blender.

Hope this helps.
I was so excited to see this post....I have been wondering how to do a "juicing" type recipe since no fruit. I would have never though to give the WF marshmallow a try. Definatly looking forward to giving this a try. Tried any other recipes like this?

I have some WF products but I've never seen ranch at my coaches, I'll have to look online.

I am someone who did not really like vegetables, except things like corn. My tastes have changed on IP and I actually crave and look forward to things like garlic roasted cabbage (the taste really changes when you pop it in a hot oven with some sprayed olive oil).

There are lots of recipes on here for some very different and unusual ways to do veggies - lots of things you can do with cauliflower that has been roasted. I roast my broccoli until it is almost burnt - nice and crunchy and a lovely roast flavor. I have fun discovering new ways to treat salad and veggies from postings here.

I just ordered some mayo, ranch dip, and a ranch dressing all from vitacost.com that are walden farms, I hope they are all approved because in order to get them for $4 each you had to order 2 bottles of each thing lol

As long as they were the 0/0/0 versions... they have a few dressings that are Sugar Free, but are not 0/0/.0 because they have fat (and maybe some carbs not from sugar?)

The recipe came from the chiro (clinic director) - who was "sat" in for my normal coach when he was out. She said the marshmallow dip adds creaminess and sweet. It does.

I haven't tried any other recipes

I usually don't LOVE salad but I found an awesome salad mix at Costco that pretty much takes care of my lettuce and veggie requirement. It has kale,chicory,cabbage and Brussels sprouts ( I pick them out.) I use two cups of the mix and a few big handfuls of romaine. Let it marinate in some WF dressing for about 10 minutes and it is absolutely delicious. I actually crave it.

I don't hate salad, but the dressings are all too runny or too sweet or sour. I can't seem to find or make one that tastes really good. I literally have to choke the stuff down. Gag. Also, veggies, sigh. I wish green beans weren't so restricted. I also really miss carrots. Broccoli is my favorite and so is cucumber, but do they cause as much upper GI problems for anyone else? I will be trying some of these recipes for sure.

Salad IS optional. It's just a go-to if you feel you don't have enough volume on your plate. I never had salad while I was losing weight, but I do like the 'bulkier' veggies, like jicama, zucchini, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, sauerkraut, etc.
I think some clinics tell their members to eat all that salad because there are so many that don't have a feel for healthy serving sizes and like to see a heaped plate so they don't feel deprived, but that's mainly a psychological issue.
