Making healthier choices
One of the many ways to get kids to make better choices, is to get them Cooking in the Kitchen with you. I post various recipes that are healthy, kid friendly, and super easy to make. I have a job and a blog, I have 3 kids with busy schedules, a working husband, and I do not have time for complex meals.
Fast and easy does not have to be processed, fast food, or gross. We all need a little inspiration and a little help from our kids.
Home Made Ranch Dressing (great for all ages to make)
- 1 C dry parsley
- 1 T dill weed
- 1/2 C garlic powder
- 1/2 C onion powder
- 1/2 C sea salt
- 1/2 C minced onion
- Mix all ingredients and store in jar ( lasts for a couple of months and we eat ranch all the time)
- When you are ready to make fresh ranch dressing: Combine 1 T of dry mix to 1/3 plain Greek yogurt, 1/3 sour cream, 1/3 whole milk, 1 T mayo (or not) I have added avocado as well at various times. Just enough that it's not too green.
- No more store bought ranch dressing, no more reading labels of all those bottles filled with gross ingredients.
- TIP: I use 1/3 Cup Greek Yogurt for the dressing, then divide in baggies and freeze for later use. I do the same with sour cream if I have too much. Defrost and add to dry ingredients.
