And the answer is.....

It's always important to make informed decisions regarding your food and nutrition. You may have seen these two options and thought it was a no-brainer, but the Balsamic Vinaigrette contains 100 fewer calories per serving. It tops your salad for 140 calories, 11 grams of fat, and just 1.5 grams of saturated fat. Plus, this vinaigrette is made with heart-healthy olive oil. While Au Bon Pain's Lite Honey Mustard Dressing may be "lighter" than standard honey mustard, it adds unnecessary calories and fat to your skinny salad: 240 calories, 15 grams of fat, and 2 grams of saturated fat. Take advantage of the nutrition information that is available in restaurants and online, and don't assume that the name or description alone will lead you in the "light" direction every time.
