Take me to the recipe already!

I’ve been doing intermittent fasting for the past couple of weeks and have found that it really helps keep me on track with staying low carb. I have been doing the 16:8 method, which means for 16 hours I don’t eat and then I get all my food during the 8 hours. So basically I eat breakfast at 11 am and then don’t eat after 7 pm.

At 10 this morning I was really wanting to eat. I wasn’t particularly starving, but after looking at delicious food on Pinterest and Instagram this morning, I really wanted to eat. So I decided to get in the kitchen and start making something, hoping that killing time in the kitchen will get me close to 11 am.

I wanted to create something that is versatile and I can use to flavor all types of food, kind of like ranch dressing. I know people who put ranch dressing on everything, from vegetables to pizza to ice cream. Just kidding, ranch dressing and ice cream would be gross. Then it occurred to me, a garlicky, herby, cream cheese spread that I could put on my breakfast, on my lunch and on my dinner. Of course I can by herb spreads at the store, but making it myself is so much cheaper!

I used a mix of fresh and dried herbs and garlic. Typically I use fresh dill and chives, but I didn’t have any, so I raided the spice cabinet and used dried dill and chives. I did use fresh garlic. Add a bit of sea salt and some freshly ground black pepper and mix it all together. I won’t tell if you lick the beaters.
