I love fresh vegetables and dip as a mid morning or afternoon snack. This ranch dip a a clean whole food version of those processed packaged ranch dips that you can buy at the grocery store.The organic sour cream that I use as the base in this recipe provides your body with a great amount of good fat, protein, B-12 and calcium. The fresh parsley in this ranch dip contains antioxidants, vitamin K and folate.
So you see, by making this simple homemade ranch dip you are giving your body all of those amazing nutrients that I mentioned above. They will help keep your mind and body balanced and nourished!
250g or 1 cup organic sour cream ( I like to look for a local, organic sour cream)

1/4 cup fresh chives (practice your knife skills here!)
1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley
1 teaspoon raw, local honey
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Pinch of cayenne ( I like spice!)
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Note- Omit the honey and you've got yourself a low carb dip!
