Sodium-Free Italian Dressing

Pin It

Since I have been in the process of losing weight the last couple months, my diet has changed extremely!  While how much sodium an item did not even phase me in the past, I noticed that I had to start monitoring it.  Once I lowered it, I started seeing the pounds fall consistently over the last month and a half as I stopped retaining as much water.  Take note, that watching my sodium is not the only thing I'm doing in addition to counting my calories and working out at the gym, but it's one of the major items for my successful weight loss.  * I am not giving out medical advice for your situation. *

Because I'm not eating a purchased dietary program's food, I am still able to eat the same foods I love but with caution.  I don't feel restricted or deprived by my food cravings for pizza, pasta, bread, or dessert.  Although, I must monitor and plan for certain allowances.

While one of my favorite foods is grilled chicken, I had to seriously find an alternative of my favorite Kraft Foods Zesty Italian dressing to fulfill my goal of 1500 mg/day for sodium and still eat other things!  I'm pretty stoked about this new recipe I came across but modified it for my dietary needs.  Now, I can eat my favorite grilled chicken using this as the marinade and still be within my limit.

If you'd like to join me in my new adventure, I'm using My Fitness Pal and my username is haymancm.  It'd be pretty cool to do this together! :)

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup oil
1-2 tsp Mrs. Dash Onion & Herb seasoning
1 tsp sugar

Combine all ingredients, stirring until dissolved.  Store sealed in the fridge.  Use for your favorite salads or marinades.
