What to Eat Wednesday: All Dressed Up

Jazz up an all-veggie salad like this one with 4,3,2,1 dressing!Pretty much everyone I know needs to incorporate more vegetables into their diet—heck, even when I was briefly a vegan, I probably still didn’t get enough greens. But, while eating your veggies is important for everyone, for diabetics looking to maintain a healthy weight and control blood sugar, it can be crucial.

Here’s the thing, though—sometimes it’s hard to get excited about eating a salad for lunch…but not when you add on this fabulous 4…3…2…1 Dressing (even the name is fun!) from the American Diabetes Association. Try it tonight and see your side-salad jump straight to the main event!

1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt (4 tablespoons)
