Skinny Ranch

This is really as simple as it gets. It is one of the easiest healthy swaps you can make. I have tested it on kids and grown men alike and it has garnered nothing but praise. Regular ranch dressing comes in at 140 calories and 14 grams of fat per 2 Tbsp serving. This version comes in at 34 calories and 0 grams of fat (that's right... ZERO FAT) per 2 Tbsp serving. You are saving over 100 calories every time you eat skinny ranch over it's original (fatter) alternative. Let me translate that into pounds off of your body for you. If you typically eat ranch dressing 4 times per week over the course of a year you are saving 22,048 calories and that equals over 6 lbs of body weight. So, make this switch and you will be 6 lbs lighter over the course of a year (And who doesn't want that?)

8 oz plain non-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
1 Tbsp Hidden Valley Ranch dry seasoning mix 

Mix all ingredients well. Serve as a dip with carrots, celery, tomatoes, etc. or use as a salad dressing.

Per Serving (2 Tbsp): 34 cals / 0g fat / 4g carbs / 4g protein
