I have been trying to embrace being conscious of my sugar intake lately. The struggle is real since most processed food has a ton of sugar in it. Once you start reading the labels on your pre packaged food it is an eye opener. One of those processed foods I have been keep a close eye on is salad dressing.
The dressing can take away from what you are actually trying to accomplish when you pick a salad, and that’s eating healthy. Since there aren’t a whole lot of options out there I have opted to start making some of my own that are super easy and very good.
If you have never had a warm salad dressing over Kale you are missing out, so I wanted to share this favorite with you.
