basic salad dressingSometimes in our quest for better health, we can forget how important the basics can be.   In this video, I show you how to make your own healthy salad dressing quickly and easily in your own kitchen.   Store salad dressings – even organic ones at the healthfood store – are loaded with unhealthy, highly processed polyunsaturated oils that will cause inflammation in your body when consumed to excess in the typical Western diet (not to mention ugly brown spots on your skin!).

Make sure you are getting the fats right in your salad dressing – this is one of the most basic steps as you convert your kitchen to a place where Real Food reigns!
