My son loves ranch dressing and will dip just about anything in it. I found this recipe on The Gracious Pantry while I was seaching for information on Clean Eating and healthy recipes. I am baby-stepping my way into Clean Eating. My family is not really excited about it, but I am going to push forward anyway. I have tried another recipe that I found for healthy homemade ranch dressing and we didn't like it at all. This one turned out really good.
I made some to dip broccoli in on our way to Texas tomorrow. I have spent most of the day preparing food for our 550 mile trip and some for the week while we stay at my brother's. I am determined to not stop at McDonald's tomorrow like we usually do. I made chicken salad using this dip as the combining agent today and will make pita sandwiches with it (recipe coming soon).
I will let you know how the trip goes and how our healthy eating on the road goes. I am a little nervous, but I plan on doing my best to eat the right food most of the time.
