Thread: Ranch dressing?

  1. #1

    Ranch dressing?

    Does anybody know why we aren't allowed ranch dressing?

    And, is there an HCG-friendly recipe for a salad dressing that tastes similar to ranch?

    Thanks!

    Ranch Dressing recipe

    This is he recipe I used before ever starting this diet. My husband is a huge mayo/dressing user so I was looking for something I could make at home to avoid the additives of commercial dressing.

    First you make the milk mayo:

    Milk Mayo
    1/3 cup cold milk
    3/4 cup extra light olive oil
    3/4 tsp lemon juice
    dash of salt

    Put the milk and lemon juice in a quart jar and buzz with a hand blender for 30 seconds. Add salt. Slowly drizzle in the oil with blender running. Blend until it forms a mayo consistency.

    Now to make the ranch dressing I add:
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    2 tsp parsley
    dash of salt, pepper to taste
    about 1/8 cup of buttermilk
    Buzz with the hand blender until mixed and smooth. Add more buttermilk if needed until you get the consistency you want.

    Waldon farms has a no calorie no sugar ranch dressing. You may have to adjust it to suit your taste. If you cannot find it where you live, I have ordered from their web site. The thousand island dressing is the best in my opinion.

    I make this every day in my magic bullet blender. It is so delicious. I use it during P2 also.

    Pop some Lowfat Cottage Cheese into the blender with a little bit of milk, some Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and parsley flakes, and a generous pinch of salt. (Play with the spices, til you get it how you like it)
    Blend until smooth - add some water or chicken broth to get it to your desired consistency.

    Walden Farms rocks! I totally agree with the 1000 island dressing. There honey smoked bbq is really good too. My grocery store carries a few of their items in the diet pill section but I went out to their site and bought some additional things my store doesn't carry.

    Would the cottage cheese be considered a protein replacement in P2?

    It would be a protien but the amount of cottage cheese per serving is about 2 tablespoons. So if I put shrimp on my salad I count the shrimp and cottage cheese as a total of 1 protien.

    So, as an example, since we're supposed to eat 100 grams of meat, if I were to eat 20 grams of dressing made with cottage cheese, I would only eat 80 grams of meat for that meal?
