One more sleep….just one more sleep until we head to the Jersey shore.  Race day is right around the corner so I ate my stress by stuffing my face with a pile of chocolate chip cookies and a couple glasses of cabernet.  That’s my recovery meal after a workout.  Not really, but I definitely fell off the wagon today and that was due to a combination of trying to cram three days of work into one and just plain anxiety over this whole race thing.  This whole, really long 5K. I feel silly…I mean it’s just a short race but right now, I’m concerned because I didn’t really train at all and the smell of pizza on the boardwalk was a bit of a derailment last year.  That and the caramel corn. It did me in.

For the most part, I did eat relatively healthy and that was due to this amazingly Easy Avocado Ranch Dressing.  It’s so simple to make with just a few ingredients and it’s filling, flavorful and completely mind-blowing.  I like to use it on all my salads but it’s also fantastic as a veggie dip.

It’s be perfect drizzled over these smashed potatoes (I’m not even kidding).  It’s a cool departure from my super Pinterest popular Fire Roasted Pineapple Dressing…which if you’re not a fan of spicy foods then you can easily replace it in this Caribbean Cobb Salad.  It would be absolutely drool-worthy.
