Default Galeos Miso Dressings

I like my salads with LOTS of dressing (those of you who know me know I'm not a huge fan of veggies, so if I can really taste them, then it's a bad salad for me ). To lose weight, I've been coutning calories and limiting my processed sugar/processed carb intake. In doing so, I was using quite a bit of artificial sweeteners like Splenda, which I wanted to try to get away from. I also had high blood pressure the last time I went to a doctor, and sooooo many salad dressing low in sugar are sky high in sodium.

At Whole Foods the other day, I discovered Galeos Miso Dressings. I got 3 flavors: Caesar, Sesame, and Dijonnaise. They are all natural, sweetened with honey, and check out these stats:
Sesame Dressing, per Tablespoon
22 calories
2g fat (.2 saturated)
0mg cholesterol
35mg sodium
.5g sugars

I actually have 6 servings on my salad (hey, it's a big salad! ), which is 6 servings, or about the equivalent of 3 servings for most bottled dressings. In 6 Tablespoons, I end up with only 132 calories, 210mg sodium, and 3g sugar. ANd, the best part is, it tastes good! I get a bit of sweet Asian flavor, which I love, without any soy sauce, which I avoid due to sodium.

I was making my own Asian dressing at home, but it used soy sauce and lots of oil, so, even when I watered it down a bit, it was very high in sodium and calories.

The dijonnaise flavor has been AWESOME on sandwiches and burgers, and I'm using it on chicken tonight.

I haven't tried the caesar one yet.

Yippee for finding new things at the store! We just have to keep finding new treats that are healthy AND taste good. I think that's the biggest key to success! Thanks for sharing!

The Galeo Miso is outrageously good and since it is thicker and creamy it goes a long way. You just have to be careful when you open it to push all the sesame stuff back into the bottle and shake it all up. Another good one we get out here is "Follow Your Heart" Spicy Southwestern Ranch and regular Ranch. 1/4 cup is 1 WW point....Amazing. I think you can order it by mail if you don't get it in your stores. FYH is a local vegan restaurant that also sells their dressings and whatnot in local grocery stores.
