This is one of the healthiest and tastiest salad dressings you can make. It is superior in its immune boosting abilities because of the ingredients and is quick and easy to make.
Why these particular ingredients?
Flax – high in fiber which keeps you regular. The more you are eliminating waste from your body, the less toxic waste is building up in your colon. When waste is built up, it putrefies and gets reabsorbed.
Apple Cider Vinegar – this is the miracle “food” and I added it to this for many reasons including to control blood sugar levels but ACV also improves nutrient absorption, so you’ll have more ability to absorb the nutrients from your salad. You know the saying “You are what you eat” is true, but it is also true that “You are what you digest.” You can eat all the healthy food you want, but if your body can’t absorb them then it isn’t doing your body as good as you think it is.
Olive Oil – There is debate about olive oil being healthy or unhealthy. But there is no debate that we need more fat in our diet. Good fats. And the little bit of olive oil in this dressing delivers the tiny punch of fat that our body needs. One of the main sources of energy for the human body is fat. Don’t be afraid of it!
Oregano – great for digestive disorders, immunity and detoxifying the body. When you have toxins/disease you want to get those out! Oregano is top notch for that.
Curry – this spice is a strong fighter for the body as it is a great anti-inflammatory. Bad nutrition can cause chronic inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation is a precursor to disease. Curry is a powerful spice that provides the body with what it needs to fight that.
Garlic powder – garlic has been shown to be a powerful component in fighting cancer so it’s a no brainer to add garlic and/or garlic powder to as many meals as you can. If you wanted to, you could use minced garlic in this dressing rather than the powder. Or both!
Cayenne – another major detoxifier, but if you aren’t used to spice, then go easy at first. A tiny pinch will do.
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
1/8 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp curry (or turmeric)
a small pinch of cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp flax seed
1. Add everything to a small bowl and mix well, then pour all over your salad.
