The best healthy salad dressing plus taking on the fear of good fats

This creamy healthy salad dressing adds a luscious mouthfeel while providing the necessary healthy fats that allows your body to better absorb the nutrients from your salad ingredients. The dressing is so versatile. It makes eating salad easy by binding together dry salad ingredients including greens, avocado, tomatoes, shredded carrots or beets, small tinned fishes (sardines, mackerel, anchovies), nuts etc. Another great way to use this is to spoon this beauty onto baked sweet potatoes or other baked root vegetables for an instantly gorgeous healthy lunch. It’s a staple in my house.

It may not look like much on first glance, but this soup packs [...]

Smoky cauliflower soup with turmeric sweet potatoes and red peppers

Smoky cauliflower soup with turmeric sweet potatoes and red peppers This cauliflower soup is the warming equivalent of a great big exotic hug. Roasting cauliflower until it's a smoky, caramelised hot mess really makes my day. It's a simple enough process. You throw some plain old cauliflower in a roasting pan with oil and spices, not really expecting much, but what pops back out of the oven after 30 minutes is a wondrous thing. Apart from the roasted cauliflower, the cinnamon, cumin, and turmeric work together to bring out the savoury goodness in the vegetables and the sweet potato and [...]
