Autumn raw vegan salad dressing (Low Fat)

I love good salad dressings that help eat large raw vegan evening plates with pleasure. For me the key for the satisfying evening meal is hidden in the sauce! You can eat the same vegetables every evening, but if you change the sauce, everything changes along with it. That's why I'm constantly looking for new flavours, new associations, new textures. We've just finished writing an ebook with low fat raw vegan dressings and I hope it will be available soon for you as well. But it's still a secret :)

Today I would like to share with you a very nice autumn recipe for a low fat raw vegan salad dressing. This sauce is excellent with all raw salads. At the moment I love it with spinach, grated carrots and kohlrabi, tomatoes and lot's of parsley! In that dressing I use swiss chard stalk instead of celery to salt it up a little bit. I found it even more pleasant than celery that is often too bitter and slightly pungent here...

Autumn raw vegan low fat salad dressing

  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 small tomato
  • a small piece of mild red onion (or green onions)
  • 1 large white stalk of swiss chard
  • 1tbs of hemp seeds (you can add more or less if you wish)
  • small piece of fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp of old style french mustard (optional)
  • fresh or dried dill to taste
Chop yellow bell pepper, tomato and swiss chard stalk into pieces. Simply add everything into your Vitamix blender and blend until silky smooth. Serve over your salad of choice.
You can need to add some water, but me, I do prefer this dressing on the thick side.
You can also play with different herbs and spices or if you don't follow 80/10/10 style, feel free to add some soy sauce, salt or even nutritional yeast. I think it will be very tasty like that too.
This dressing is also awesome with any type of steamed vegetables.

I hope you will enjoy this recipe, let me know if you tried it!
Have a wonderful weekend!

When you need some energy...

Every once in a while, everyone passes through a difficult time in his or her life. Life will always offer us some challenges, the question is how do we deal with it?
When I feel tired, discouraged, emotionally drained, I wont wait, I do act immediately! I boost my emotional and physical strength by slightly modifying food that I eat. I add to my morning green smoothie 3 common superfoods. What a deal would you say? The secret is that all 3 taken together does the miracles!
  1. MACA - maca is a common and well known superfood. Maca has a pleasant taste and is rich in many nutrients. It is excellent to increase energy and stamina, to boost libido and fertility and to balance female (red maca) and male (black maca) hormones. Maca supports female cycle, pregnancy and breast-feeding. It's an excellent plant for physical, mental and hormonal strength. You can read more about maca here: The Best Selection of Certified Organic Maca Products Anywhere
  2. SPIRULINA - Spirulina is also very rich in nutrients, protein and iron. It's an excellent energy booster. I don't take spirulina every day, but I experienced a lot of benefits doing a 14 - 21 day cure a few times per year. You can find it here.
  3. BARLEY GRASS JUICE POWDER - is the one supplement that I take mostly every day. It's an excellent source of minerals and protein. Every day usage prevents deficiencies, it's very important if you're living in northern climates where fruit is rarely left to ripen naturally and lacks lots of minerals. You can get an excellent barley grass juice powder here

     And now, let's go to the recipe:

Energy boosting green smoothie (LFRV)

  • 2 generous handfuls of spinach
  • 1 handful of parsley
  • 1 large apple or pear
  • 3 to 6 bananas
  • 1tsp spirulina powder
  • 1tsp red maca powder (or regular maca)
  • 1Tbs barley grass juice powder
Core and cut the apple into pieces. Put greens and apple pieces into your blender, add a cup of water and blend it until smooth. Add bananas and powders into the blender and blend again just until incorporated and smooth. Enjoy!
Take this smoothie for at least a few days to experience the benefits.

When I need some emotional and physical support, energy and protection I also keep my Genesa Crystal close to me! It's energy and vibration helps tremendously! 

Have an energetic day!

John McDougall MD the prove for veganism

I'm not for a starch solution diet, but I think that any vegan diet is great for humans. Then, do you eat mostly starch or mostly fruit is up to you, but both works well!

I do prefer fruit, but when I don't have any ripe fruit available I would go for steamed potatoes and greens!

Anyway, it's a very interesting talk.
