Toss that Salad....Dressing!

Salad is great for you! But your dressing can be the kiss of death.  Filled with preservatives, food coloring, artificial sugars and a bunch of crap.  

Some pack up to 200 calories and 20 grams of fat per serving.  There goes your healthy salad.  Or if you're dipping your fiber filled celery into ranch dressing it then becomes a vehicle of delivering fat. Fat from olive oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil or hazelnut are all great choices.  Your body thrives on nutritious fats. It's what helps the fat soluble vitamins: A, D, E and K get absorbed by the body.  Plus it's a beauty food. Thick hair, moisturized skin, tough nails and making your meals more satiating are all benefits of healthy fats.
Watch out for low fat or low calories dressings because where they skimp on fat they make up with crazy high levels of sodium and sugar to compensate.  After eating a healthy salad that's supposed to make you trim and your feet can't even fit into your shoes it because of that damn sodium.  

High fructose corn syrup...avoid it! A major cause of obesity which leads to a variety of preventable diseases. It's processed different than regular sugar, metabolized by the liver and turned into fat. Any food product that contains this ingredient is guaranteed to be nutrient deficient and unhealthy for you.

I have a simple, quick and healthy dressing that will amplify the nutrient value of your salad.  What you put into your body effects everything; mood, productivity, energy levels and of course weight.

Bon Appetite!
