A can of garbanzo beans, which my kids and I eat all the time (once we rinse them—virtually anything in a can is high in sodium and should be rinsed before eating), is a total of 350 calories. That, in itself, is not so bad, but you can overdo it with beans if you are not careful. Ditto with lentils. They are a great source of protein as well, especially for those who choose to eat a vegetarian diet, but they also add up in calories really fast.

At home, I recommend that you add very little low-calorie dressing to your salad and place it in either a spinner or a sealed Tupperware container and spin, spin, spin or shake, shake, shake.
