Any tips for full or half pass check-ins? I had a salad with the only sugar I could find was in the dressing (listed eighth).

  • DietID_TeamDietitians If you have just a little added sugar, such as that found in salad dressing, that would qualify as half a pass for sure. A great no added sugar salad dressing is this shallot dijon dressing by...
