 If this is your first time reading a post about our Baby Steps to Frugal and Healthy Living then you may want to start HERE.

What's today's Baby Step to a Healthy Lifestyle?  Green Smoothies!

I know, you are looking at the picture and thinking....but it's GREEN. no way.  It looks gross. 

I understand because I felt the same way before.

 I didn't grow up eating any green vegetables except for green beans.  Oh, the veggies were provided by my parents but they just didn't force me to eat them.  So I didn't.  Ever.

 "I've come a long way baby" and the fact that I am drinking something healthy and green is monumental.  What makes this smoothie recipe great is that you only taste the fruit and not the veggies.

Super Easy Homemade Pizza Dough

Oh My Goodness, I am so excited that I have finally conquered a fear and been successful at making my own homemade pizza dough.  It's funny how a teeny tiny little package of yeast can intimidate a girl so.

Healthier Ranch Dressing Recipe 

As we are making Baby Steps to Healthy Living AND in the midst of our Six Week Eating Fresh Experiment, salads are a big part of our success.  We have at least one salad orgreen smoothie pretty much every day.  I have perfected (from trial and error) a healthier ranch dressing recipe that my family loves and I want to share it with you.

I knew that ranch dressing was not the healthiest thing you could consume because the store-bought kind includes many fattening items and is very expensive.  What I didn't realize until recently was how many preservatives, unknown ingredients and tons of sodium were also added.  Yuck!
