No Guilt Honey-Mustard Dressing/Sauce

Water it down a bit more for a salad dressing, and keep it at a thicker consistency for a dipping sauce for chicken. This versatile little dip has no calories (almost), no sugar, no bitterness, no carbs, no nothing. If you are on a strict diet, or simply don't want to worry about the content of some bottled items, try this on for size...

1. Mix about a half cup of yellow mustard with a packet of Stevia (or any sweetener you like). Mix to taste. If you like it tart, add more mustard. If you like sweeter, add more sweetener.
2. Add just enough water to give the mixture a dressing-like consistency.

Now, there are brown/spicy mustards that have no strange/sugary ingredients in them, but if you are not a label reader, stick to basic yellow mustard.

If you want something a bit tangier, try this:
Take Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar (just a tad, this stuff is potent)
Add spicy mustard, garlic powder, oregano, and crushed red peppers, to taste
Mix. Enjoy!

A note about Bragg's...don't even bother with any other apple cider vinegar. There has been a lot of research about the thermogenic effects of this vinegar, but Bragg's is the only one typically available that has the "mother" of the apple in it. Its unfiltered, so you will be able to see sediment in it...but that is why this one is so much better than any "clear" version out there....the clear version has essentially been stripped of everything natural and healthy in this vinegar. Its available at (for cheap mail order), as well as amazon...but typically available at the organic section in the grocery store.
