As you all know I have started on a mission to not only lose weight, but eat healthy. You would think that the two are one in the same, however, there were a lot of things I didn’t know when I first started my weight loss journey. Counting calories may do it for you in terms of weight loss – but what about the nutrients your body needs? What about all the other ‘junk’ you’re constantly putting in your body thinking that you are making a healthy eating decision?
One of my favorite ‘go-to-diet’ foods have always been salads. Throw some protein on it (my favorite is steak) add some veggies and maybe some sunflower seeds and of course gobs of ranch dressing. I mean the dressing is what really makes the salad right?
Before when picking the dressing I’d of course go by taste first – then I would look at the calorie content. Keeping myself under my daily calorie goal at the time was my only objective and I didn’t notice (or think to look) about the other ingredients. When you really start looking you’ll notice most brands are full of sugar, preservatives and artificial ingredients – yuck! I learned quick that just because it was low calorie or even low fat, didn’t mean that it was going to be good for me by any means; in fact, it was probably worse than the full fat/higher calorie alternatives.
So during my research I was introduced to Tessemae’s Creamy Ranch dressing and I was immediately impressed. Made with only clean, simple, real ingredients Tessemae’s knocked the socks of the competitors.
Not only is it sugar free- but its dairy free, gluten free, verified GMO free and Whole30 and Kosher approved.
Tessemae’s makes 25 different dressings, marinades and condiments – and they use real, whole sourced food ingredients and are USDA organic – and available at Kroger.
I love that they have individual sizes – this makes packing lunches for me (or for the kiddos) a whole lot easier!
Check out your local Kroger for Tessemae’s products, and try it for yourself!
