Healthy 5-Minute BBQ Sauce

A tasty sauce, spread or dressing takes a meal from ‘just okay’ to ‘whoa that’s delicious!’ The right sauce adds flavor, personality and complexity to a dish, and having a diverse repertoire of easy, healthy and flavorful sauces, makes clean eating a breeze. I also like sauces that satisfy a multitude of other dietary restrictions (vegan, gluten-free, whole30), making… Continue reading Healthy 5-Minute BBQ Sauce

Classic Lemon and Garlic Hummus

I eat hummus all the time. I eat hummus as a dip, as a spread, and even by the spoonful. Many of my recipes call for hummus, and because it’s so easy to throw together (less than 15 minutes), I usually make my own. Simple, whole ingredients make hummus a healthy, nutritious, and flavorful food… Continue reading Classic Lemon and Garlic Hummus

One recipe I’ve been wanting to experiment with is homemade ranch dressing mix, one that perfectly designed and portioned to be made right inside an individual size Greek yogurt cup. Then, this weekend, I spotted Annie’s brand BBQ sauce while grocery shopping, which inspired something in me, so I purchased it without an exact plan… Continue reading Southwest BBQ-Ranch Salad
