Waldorf Salad – Calorie Savings
How to Save Food Calories and Lose Weight By Eating Green Salad Instead of Waldorf Salads

Calorie Savings – Waldorf Salad

A Waldorf Salad is not the best diet food if you want to lose weight.

Remember: losing weight means controlling calories. We need to reduce our calorie-intake until it is lower than our calorie-expenditure.
