Veggie dip!

Having food allergies can be one of the most frustrating things sometimes. In my family we love to have our fresh cut veggies and ranch dip. It has been a staple in the family for as far back as my grandpa being a little boy. So one day I thought…That Enough!…I want to be able to enjoy my fresh veggies with a dip too. My Dad and his wife had gone to a little garden convention there where they live and got to taste all kinds of good organic fresh foods. They then passed the information on to me, I started to do all of my research, and well the rest is history!! I have found a new love, and it is great to have on hand for snacks or to take on road trips, or to just fill that hungry tummy when your in a bind. All of the dips are gluten free, but some of the dips do contain milk…so be careful and read your ingredients! Quick Go buy some fresh veggies and order you some of the dips to try…all of the ones that I have tried thus far have been delicious!

now if your wondering what I use for the mix I use a cup of vegan mayonnaise it is earth balance brand but I have made my own….of course that takes a really long time to do but it is way healthier and truly paleo, I will have to post that recipe at a later date, with one cup of tofutti sour cream, it is vegan as well…of course I make this too but again for the quick fast and easy you can just buy them, with one pack of season…let it sit in the fridge to meld all of the flavors..about 30 minutes to an hour and then DIG IN!!

I posted the link to the website below! I hope you like them just as much as I do!
