Hi Jeff;

Aside form once or twice a month, my meals are built around some legume whole grain combination with produce on the side to fill me up, so I am not worried about my calorie allowance wasted on junk calories.

I found your reply helpful. I am not concerned that I "should" get oil in my salad dressings. I'm not so sure that I will get all that much more nutrition in the low fat dressings I may make as the oil dressings I use are usually only 30 calories per spoon and it seems like most low fat dressing recipes are just some kind of concentrated sweet food.

I've tried kicking the salad dressing habit for years, but to me for some odd reason the most valuable vegetables are just unpalatable without some small amount of sauce to take the bitterness out ( collards, mustard greens etc ).

But, the small amount of sauces I use translate to getting vegetables versus no vegetables at all.

So, I may just be getting obsessive about nutrition past the point where it might be useful ( "orthorexia" )

Thanks again for the information. I will make it a point to start making some of my own low fat dressings
