Simple and kind of sweet. Who said eating clean has to be torture? Any bed of tossed greens will be especially delightful with a made from scratch CLEAN vinaigrette dressing.
Using only a few ingredients, all are detox friendly and perfect for the 30 Day Healthy Living Challenge that begins on January 2.
What you'll need:
1/4 c. extra virgin organic olive oil
1/2 c. Bragg's organic apple cider vinegar
1/4 c. frozen or fresh raspberries, pureed
1 T. organic agave nectar (optional)
1/2 t. Herbamare original spice mix, or other organic spice blend free of artificial ingredients/MSG
When we are eating clean for the challenge, vinegars are eliminated, with the exception of Bragg's. Indeed, a year ago when I detoxed I cut out everything EXCEPT for my balsamic vinegar homemade dressings. I continued to have some issues with bloating and such. I was eating clean, so I was confused as to why I was having issues. Then I read the program booklet for the 30 day plan and realized I had not cut vinegar. So I did. and guess what? The difference was immediate.
If you do have issues with vinegar, even Bragg's, substitute with freshly squeezed lemon juice instead.
I hope you will try this delicious homemade dressing. It would also be good as a chicken marinade, I suspect.
To your health!
