Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Sunny Tuscan Dressing

Dr. Fuhrman believes it's best to start your mornings with a salad to help you lose weight. Unlike typical breakfast foods such as muffins and eggs, salads will fill you up and keep you full until lunchtime. Plus, they're packed with tons of vegetables and helpful nutrients to help you maximize your metabolism.
