Another day, another horrifying Jill Duggar recipe! The former Counting On star has been posting several recipes a week on her blog lately, and during that time, we’ve learned that, well, she can’t cook. Although we can’t necessarily blame her, after all, the meals she had growing up were based on what was on sale at Costco (presumably), she doesn’t need to punish her fans. Most recently, the mother-of-two shared her concoction for salad dressing, and honestly, how has no one had a heart attack yet?
“The Voeller family visited my family many years ago and made many delicious, healthy dishes,” she wrote on Aug. 4. “The two eldest daughters created a cookbook several years ago (From the Kitchen of Two Sisters) with lots of their recipes. This is one we really love. It goes well on salads, potatoes, pasta and more!”
Are we supposed to know who the Voeller family is?? Regardless, the ingredients basically consist of salt, salt, and salt. Take a look below:
1 C. light olive oil
3 T. Dijon mustard
2 T. Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, tamari, or soy sauce
2 T. honey
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. thyme
1/2 t. pepper
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, humans are supposed to limit their sodium intake to 2,300 milligrams a day, and in case you’ve never looked at the nutrition label on your favorite condiments, they contain a ton of it. “For every tablespoon of mustard you drizzle on your hot dog or spread on your sandwich, you’ll add just 15 calories to your meal,” reports livestong.com. “Compare this to ketchup, which offers just over 19 calories per tablespoon, or mayo with 94 calories per tablespoon. Dijon mustard doesn’t contain a significant amount of fat, carbohydrates or protein, nor does it offer any fiber or sugar. The only other nutrient in Dijon is sodium; each teaspoon contains approximately 120 milligrams.” Let’s not forget Jill wants you to add three TABLEspoons of this stuff in her dressing.
The real kicker, though, is that just one tablespoon of soy sauce contains approximately 879 mg of sodium. Yikes. And sure, this is possibly slightly healthier than bottled dressing, but when someone who claims sliced bread with sauce and cheese is “pizza,” we can’t help but question everything she posts.
