1. Avocado (yes, seriously!)
Avocado has struggled to shrug off it’s reputation for being the most calorific salad ingredient. It’s therefore wrongly avoided by dieters like the plague. The truth is that half an avocado only contains about 160 calories so will only make a small dent in your daily calories allowance. It contains good fats which are excellent for general healthy and will fill you make making you less likely to snack. It’s also jam packed with vitamins and minerals. The smooth and rich consistency of avocado will also help you avoid the temptation to plaster your salads with highly calorific and unhealthy dressings.
