Healthy Salad Dressings and Dip Recipes

images (8)We all love our dips and salad dressings, but what most of us don’t know is that they are high in fats and sugars, and loaded with chemicals. Put a spin on your salad dressings by making them from scratch. They’re super easy, take less than 4-5 minutes to make and you can double or triple the batch. Store them in the refrigerator for the week and they’re ready to go whenever you are! This is the perfect place to start changing your lifestyle, especially if you want to start making some changes without feeling overwhelmed!

I moved to the Eastern Shore to enjoy a slower pace of life after spending several years working in fast-paced settings. Earning a BA from Towson University and an MA in Education from Loyola University provided me with the drive to progress in many business fields. As the owner of Good Clean Fun Life, an arts and entertainment magazine online, I have had the opportunity to spread good vibes, promote entertainment, artists, and events across the Mid-Atlantic region. GCFL provides me with many opportunities to practice a few of my favorite hobbies: photography, socializing, and blogging. GCFL is now headed in a new and exciting direction, allowing me to grow this into a full time venture in Digital Promotion using Content Strategy and Media Production.
