Healthy cooking?

So, some of my friends have to eat super healthy (as in low-fat, low-salt and low sugar) and I have been experimenting with a ton of new recipes but my greatest successes appear to be what I (or my friend Bella) come up with when there is no recipe, for instance tonight’s menu consisted of gyros, creamed corn, carrots, and for dessert; homemade (low-sugar) apple butter on wheat toast. If you know what a gyro is then you know they should have cucumber sauce, so here is mine and Bella’s recipe for low-fat and low-salt cucumber sauce:


1 cucumber, ground up ’til it’s like mush (don’t you love my wording)

1 container low-fat sour cream

1 1/2 tablespoons ranch seasoning

2 teaspoons onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix all ingredients and chill for at least an hour.
