a sublime salad dressing Crede Pumkinseed Oil rocks!

3rd October 2019

It feels like Summer is here, and I have given myself an intermittent fasting challenge to shed some of my winter padding, and more importantly give my body the opportunity to run in a low-grade ketosis state which is optimal to brain and gut health. This means skipping breakfast and then having lots and lots of vegetables of all different colours for lunch/ brunch with a little good protein and lots of good fats for fuel.

Needless yo say the carbs have to be cut, but I find that when the weather gets warmer its much easier to stick to big salads for lunch. Supper is a little more tricky as I have two young children to consider…but that’s a whole other post….

Today’s lunch was so good and effortless, I felt compelled to share it – and you can add any raw veggies as this recipe is really about the dressing (the combination of veg I used has certainly been featured here before), but the addition of roasted peanuts is new which added crunch, protein and some extra good fats.

My salad combination was:

  • 1 x grated organic carrot
  • lots of spinach – as much as you can eat
  • 1/2 a baby red cabbage (shredded)
  • 1/2 a cup of crushed roasted peanuts (you can replace peanuts of any nut of your choice of course)

And now for the lovely dressing:

  • 1/4 cup of Crede Pumpkin Seed oil
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce (I use Tabu Food which is naturally fermented & unpasteurised)
  • the juice of one small lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon of coconut sugar
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • Sea-salt to taste
  • Shake it up in a jar and pour over this but of heaven ver literary any salad, you won’t regret it and eating your vegetables will not be a hardship with this one.

In dedication to your radiant health,
