Litehouse dressings - online coupon

In my opinion nothing can make or break a salad faster than the dressing. OK, fresh greens are the foundation but even with the freshest salad greens you can ruin a salad with the wrong dressing.

Litehouse Salsa RanchI have never had a bad experience with Litehouse dressings. Found in the refrigerated or produce area of your supermarket then simply offer a delicious addition to everything.

Currently there is a free printable online grocery coupon worth $1 off on the purchase of 2 products. When I went to the grocery store today I found additional grocery coupons worth $.55 on each of the Litehouse dressings that I bought plus they were on sale. My final cost with online coupons and in-store grocery coupons was just $2.94 for the 13 oz. Salsa Ranch dressing.

Salsa Ranch is a blend of salsa and Ranch Dressing, and it's low in calories and fat. The Litehouse website says that it is a great topping for pasta, omelets, taco salads or as a complement to any tex-mex entree. I just love to spoon it over a fresh bed of greens, squeze a little lime on it and enjoy. Remeber, one big difference with Litehouse dressings is they contain no msg & no preservatives.

Get your vitamin E, antioxidants and a great coupon


Antioxidant Source: Almonds are one of the leading food sources of alpha-tocopherol vitamin E. Alpha-tocopherol is the kind of vitamin E the human body absorbs best.  Data shows that most Americans get only half of their recommended vitamin E per day and almonds are the ideal way to close that gap.

Almonds aren’t typically known for their antioxidants beyond vitamin E.  However, in a study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, experts determined the total antioxidants (phenols, flavonoids, and phenolic acids) in California almonds’ skins and kernels using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)/electrochemical detection, UV detection and mass spectrometry. They found that almonds contain flavonoids and phenolics in their skins similar to certain fruits and vegetables.   

The study authors concluded that a one-ounce serving of almonds contains a similar amount of total polyphenols as one cup of green tea and 1/2 cup of steamed broccoli

Wow, that's good news for all of us, particularly those that have trouble with green tea or the "can't stand broccoli crowd".

Use the $1.00 printable grocery coupon for Blue Diamond Almonds to put an extra dose of antioxidants in your diet today.
