08 Apr Easy home made Ranch Dressing
Having a yummy salad dressing is just as important as the salad, which is why I want to share this recipe and save you time finding a good healthy dressing. I personally love vinaigrettes but I also get tired if I eat them everyday, so its always great to have a healthy dressing in your fridge for when you wish to have a creamier texture without having all the nasty ingredients of the conventional brands.
What nasty ingredients?
MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) – Flavor enhancer that causes headaches, allergic reactions, brain damages and learning disabilities
Soy bean or Soy Lecithin – High in Phytoestrogens that lead to women’s issues (breast cancer, endometriosis, fibroids)
Buttermilk – Saturated fats
Xhanthan Gum – Can cause allergies, gastrointestinal reactions, bloating
A dear friend gave me a book called Eat Raw Not Cooked by Stacy Stowers and this recipe is from this book. Totally recommend the book by the way.
