15 Ways To Use Ranch Dressing, As Told By People Who Use Ranch For Everything

Everyone has some sort of weird food addiction that they absolutely cannot live without. Whether that would be a particular combination of two unlikely foods or just an obsession with a particular food group itself. I put ketchup on two pieces of bread and eat it as a sandwich!! I get a lot of weird looks with that one! However, my weird food addiction is just another one to add to the pile of other food addictions. Besides my love for ketchup, I also have a taste for ranch dressing (minus the salad part). It turns out that I am not alone in this addiction!

Many people have different combinations that they love with their ranch dressing, and many of them sound absolutely gross but they actually turn out to be delicious! In high school, some of us would mix our ketchup and ranch together to make a sauce. However, if you are one of those people that likes to keep things separated on their plate (like me) then you just double dip into each sauce. For all of you ranch lovers out there, I decided to put together combinations of different foods with ranch for you to all indulge and find that new favorite food combination!

1. Ranch and French Fries

A great and classic combination!

2. Ranch and Pizza

I used to do this all the time on my pizza in high school because the pizza itself wasn't that great so I added something to make it taste better. However, many people do this to their pizza no matter what!

3. Ranch and Hot Wings

Another classic! You can't go wrong with ranch and hot wings!

4. Ranch with Spaghetti

This is one that I haven't tried myself, but many people swear by this on how good it is!

5. Ranch on a HotDog

Eh, I am NOT so sure about this one, but, if you really love ranch and you really love hotdogs well you might as well try them together.

6. Let's Be Honest . . . Ranch On Almost Any Type Of Meat

From chicken strips, meatballs, hamburgers, and any other sort of meat dishes, ranch is a great add on!

7. Ranch On A Peanut Butter And Jelly Sandwich

Again, this is another combination that I am NOT sure about! I love a good classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and I love ranch, but I don't think that I would personally mess with the glorious combination of peanut butter and jelly on a sandwich.

8. Ranch and Pickles

A great bar appetizer, and even better for those pickle lovers!

9. Ranch and Veggies

Just on the healthier side of life, a veggie plate is bound to be at most parties. Without the ranch, how could you eat cold vegetables??

10. Ranch and Avocado

This turns out to actually be a great way to zest up your ranch dressing!

11. Ranch With Cheese Curds

Once again, another great appetizer that is even better with ranch!

12. Ranch And Skittles

Um, I think this would only go for very few people... very few.

13. Ranch With Cauliflower

I LOVE cauliflower, either raw or fried, and ranch adds to this great food item!

14. Ranch With Corn

I am from the Cornhusker state, and I have never tried this! Definitely next on my mind to try!

15. Last But Most Expected . . . Ranch On Salad

Of course, I had to end with the most predictable of all... the salad. The only way that I can eat a salad is if it is drenched in a dressing (preferable ranch).

I definitely plan on trying some of these different combinations, because that is what eating is all about! There are so many unique flavor combinations and we have our whole life to find our favorites!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember.

So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
