Dip Your Dressing

So I was definitely skeptical last week when Christin recommended dipping your fork into your salad dressing instead of pouring dressing on your salad, in her healthy eating post. Well, let me just tell you, Christin is one smart cookie.  This skeptic tried it out last night, I poured my light ranch into a ramekin, filled it almost to the brim, ate my ginormous salad and was amazed as to how little dressing I used.  I'm a ranch junkie and I swear and I don't even think I used one full serving {which is 2 tablespoons}! I wish I would have taken a before and after pic.  I'm not sure if it was because the taste is so strong when the dressing is dipped on each indiviual bite or what but I was amazed.  She claimed you'd save hundreds of calories and now I believe it.  My butt and thighs thank her!  P.S. - def check out  Thanks Christin!

On a more serious note, I read a really heartbreaking post from darling momma-to-be Megan yesterday.  Please keep baby Cohen in your prayers!!!
