2 minute Skinny Caesar Salad Dressing
An otherwise nutritious salad can easily get unhealthy depending on what you top it with. Most processed salad dressings out of the bottle are filled with sugar & artificial chemicals (even the low-fat or "light" versions). Here is a replacement made with Greek yogurt that tastes just as good as your favorite caesar dressing & is made from 100% REAL ingredients!

Exercise of the Week: Calf Stretch
Calf tightness can lead to pain & imbalance in other parts of your body, so it's important to give them a good stretch!
If you love coleslaw, then this salad recipe will quickly become your new favorite. While most coleslaw recipes contain a heavy, creamy dressing this one is made with guilt-free Greek yogurt. We’ve also added in some chickpeas for the boost of protein and fiber.
Make an effort to lighten up more of your favorite recipes by employing techniques like swapping out heavy cream for Greek yogurt or swapping refined sugar for coconut palm sugar or stevia. It’s small dietary changes like that over the long haul that will ultimately make the biggest impact on your health and fitness. Enjoy!
