Whole 30 Recipe // Repost of Ranch Dressing!


I'm reposting one of my most popular recipes, Whole 30 ranch dressing! 

 Start with the base of clean mayo- Clean Mayo Ingredients: 1 room temp egg, 1/2 fresh lemon juice 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp dry mustard, 1 cup avocado oil.
 Directions: Break egg first, add lemon juice, salt & mustard directly on top of the egg and use an immersion blender to mix it up. Slowly add the avocado oil, slow is key! The slower, the frothier. Take about 2 minutes to get it to the desired consistency. 

 Now add the following ingredients for the ranch! 1 cup Clean Mayo (recipe above) 1/2 cup canned coconut milk, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp fresh dill, 1/2 tsp sea salt.
 Directions: Mix all ingredients into the Clean Mayo, enjoy!

Whole 30 Recipe // Amazon Antipasto Cups

I came up with these Amazon Antipasto cups a few months ago and I make them ALL the time- they are easy, fresh and delicious! Buy sugar free salami (trader joes has them and I get mine at Maceys too). I buy the large size and press each piece into the form of a cupcake pan- bake just the salami for 10 min at 400°- while it's baking chop up cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, black olives & fresh basil- mix together and scoop into baked salami. Enjoy!

Whole 30 Tip // Hard Baked Eggs

Even on weeks I prep nothing, I ALWAYS make hard baked eggs- they are so easy, and such good quick grab n' go protein. @jennaskitchen changed my boiling method last year and I haven't gone back! I place the eggs individually into a cupcake tin, no water or anything needed! Bake for 30 min at 325° and then put them immediately into a bowl of ice water afterward. They don't stink up your house like boiling, AND they peel off perfectly every time.
