There are many health benefits to homemade salad dressings. The salad dressings that you buy on the store shelves today are full of un-pronounceable ingredients. Remember, if you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it!
The base of all salad dressings is the oil; choosing healthy oils will make all of the difference when it comes nutrition, avoiding toxins, and adding flavor to your salad dressings. Almost 90% of all salad dressings you buy in the store are made with canola oil, also known as rapeseed oil, which is low in nutrients and high in oxidized Omeg-6 fatty acids and the wrong forms of Omega-3 fatty acids. Check out this article to understand why to avoid canola oil, or rapeseed oil.
Extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) is already known as a superfood, but is now being looked at for
inducing rapid death in cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact.1 The compound that is found in EVOO – oleocanthal is shown to break down the fragile lysosomal membranes of cancer cells within 30 minuets. Extra-virgin olive oil is also known to protect the brain from Alzheimer’s disease and an anti-inflammatory. Check out this article on the new studies on olive oil, and why you need to add it to your diet.
Using high-quality ingredients will insure excellent nutrition for you and your family. You will also want a good hand mixer, blender bottle, or food processor to help distribute the ingredients evenly.
Here are Focused On You Chiropractic’s healthy salad dressings made by Dr. Tabitha. These healthy salad dressing made with extra-virgin olive oil will add high quality nutrients to any of your salads.
You can also substitute high quality flaxseed oil for the extra –virgin olive oil if you would like to get a good dose of healthy Omega-3s.
