Salads Boring You? Don’t Make This Mistake!

Prints-47

Salads for lunch every. single. day boring you? Don’t try jazzing it up by making this mistake…

When wanting to eat healthier you come to the simple conclusion that a salad for lunch everyday is the answer! But then day 7 comes along and you are SO bored.

What’s even worse than being bored is trying to jazz up your salads by dousing your beautiful greens in all different kinds of store bought dressings. No, of course you’re not using ranch and thousand island (I hope) but even the health food store salad dressings have sugar, nasty oils and fillers.

Homemade salad dressings are so much better for you and are quick and easy to make! With my one simple salad dressing recipe you will have endless possibilities of salads from a Mexican flare to a classic Caesar salad!

But first, Sugar and Canola Oil? GROSS!

honeySugar

I don’t think I need to convince any of you that sugar is bad. The thing that bothers me the most about processed sugar is that it’s hidden in everything! Even our salads!

Try instead: adding honey to your home made dressings or top your salad with raisins, sliced grapes, crushed pecans or cooked beets.

Canola Oil

Canola oil too is hidden in everything! A few main concerns with Canola oil: it is a highly processed oil where solvents and deodorizers are used, it is almost always made from GMO’s, it is a highly unstable oil oxidizing quickly causing mutations in cells, and last but not least, companies main reason for using it in their products is that it is the cheapest oil and they are trying to make the most profit, not taking health into consideration (Source 1, Source 2).

Try instead: Olive oil! Especially when using your olive oil unheated for salad dressings, you are getting so many health benefits such as supporting your cardiovascular system and skin. However, not all olive oils are created equal. There is quite the scandal with most store bought olive oils not being the real deal. That’s why I get my olive oil from my local farmers markets and vendors, not only supporting them but supporting my health. Or here is a list of the best store bought olive oils at the best prices as well as more information on the olive oil scandal. I also like to add a little squirt of flax oil to my salad dressings for the added Omega-3s!

1 Base Salad Dressing Recipe, Endless Possibilities!

1/4 cup Oil: Olive Oil
2 tbl Acid: balsamic, apple cider or red wine vinegar. Lemon or lime juice
2 tsp Seasoning: Salt, pepper, garlic, dried herbs or as much fresh herbs as you desire (basil, cilantro, parsley)
2 tsp Extras: dijon mustard, mayonnaise*, Worcestershire sauce, brags amino acids or tamari
1 tsp Sweet: Honey

Mix all ingredients together with a fork or whisk until emulsified and thickened.

Note: Double this recipe and store in a sealed container in your fridge for up to a week and take out a few minutes before serving for the oil to liquify again.

*mayonnaise is most commonly made with canola oil. Try these brands made with avocado oil and sunflower oil instead: Primal Kitchen, Sir Kensington’s.

Mexican Flare

I choose lime juice and cilantro as my fresh herb!

Add this on top of Romaine or Spinach with cooked quinoa, black beans, tomatoes & Avocados.

I choose balsamic vinegar and add a little dijon mustard. Then chop up pecans, slice cooked beets and sprinkle a little feta cheese for a delicious salad. For a protein punch add grilled chicken or cooked lentils on top.

In a pinch tip: Trader Joes has already cooked beets and lentils in the cold veggies section to make this salad in a snap.

I choose lemon juice and add a little mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce for this simple and healthy spin on the classic. Grate some parmesan cheese and add grilled chicken, anchovies or sardines for perfection.

 Now prep these salads ahead of time for a nutritious lunch that you won’t get bored of!


Give this recipe a try, add your own flare, and let me know what unique creation you make!
