Light Pleasures

In our journey to being curvaceous, raw foods definitely sit at the top of our food chain. Why? We get so many mood boosting nutrients from our green veggies and juicy fruit. Also, we cut back on fat tremendously because raw foods are naturally low in fat. Avocados are rich in fat, however, those are filled with the good fats that or bodies need. Try eating a salad daily. If this is hard for you, top it with some of your favorites like salmon salad, egg salad, chicken salad, etc. Taco salads are also wonderful. Smother with a variety of diced vegetables to get a full range of flavor and health boosting nutrients. Organic is the best way to go.
Remember your salad dressing. Here is a quick and easy recipe to make the 'Salad Skeptic' a true
'Salad Lover'.

Sweet and Tangy Oil and Vinegar

1/4 cup of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar

The Juice of 1 Small Lemon

1 tbsp. of Agave

1 1/2 tsp. of  Dill Weed

1 tbsp. of Granulated Garlic or 2 Garlic Clove

1tbsp. of Granulated Onion or 1/4 piece cut from 1 Small Onion

About 2 cups of Olive Oil

Place all liquid ingredients with the exception of  olive oil into a blender. Then add the seasonings and/or vegetables. Blend on high until all is mixed together. Continue to blend and slowly drizzle in olive oil. Once the mixture becomes less liquid, remove from the blender and pour into a glass dressing bottle or whatever you choose. Place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to allow the dressing to thicken more. 

This is an easy recipe that will make you run to eat salad everyday! Enjoy!
