I like simplicity, and simplicity likes me. It’s why my nutrition model is based around easy, approachable solutions for anyone and everyone interested in improving their life, even just a little bit.
I eat clean, but that’s because I eat very basic (but not dull) and lots of it. My vegetable intake is impressively high. I eat salads every day. And I’m not here to brag, I’m here to tell you how I do it.
Dressing. It’s all about the dressing. I put that **** on everything.
If you have an array of salad dressings you can make in bulk, you will be amazed at how many more vegetables you can pound back in a day.
How to do it efficiently:
I typically make a large batch of two salad dressing at a time, and keep them each in 1L mason jars in the fridge to be used in the week ahead, either to use as a dressing or just to dip veggies into. By having two options, you don’t get exhausted by continually using the same dressing.
In addition the two dressings I keep on hand, I also use simple oil + vinegar regularly. So that translates into a 3 dressing rotation.
One of my go-to’s..
One of my go-to dressing is my Carrot Miso Ginger Dressing. Ever been to a sushi restaurant and tasted their salad dressing? It’s sort of like that, but it tastes better and is better for you.
And it only requires a blender.
Carrot Miso Ginger Dressing
4 to 5 large organic carrots (if not organic, peel; if organic, leave it), broken up
½ cup organic olive oil
½ cup rice vinegar (organic preferably)
½ cup water
1 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
4 tsp. chopped fresh ginger root (or 2 tsp. ginger powder)
2 garlic clove
3 tbsp. miso paste
½ orange's worth of juice
Directions: Add all ingredients to blender and blend! Store in large mason jar or container and add 2-3 tbsp. to salad or steamed veg!
The garlic helps reduce blood pressure and supports liver detoxification.
The ginger helps stimulate the digestive system.
It’s probiotic-rich (thanks to the miso), so it improves digestion and reduces bloat.
Wicked source of fibre, so you're adding fibre on fibre when you put it on a salad!
So, now you can be the one to put this **** on everything.
Enjoy, let me know what you think!
