Recipe: 3 Simple Raw Vegan Salad Dressings

Hello, beautiful!

“Eating raw is boring and unsustainable.” Have thoughts like that ever crossed your mind? Many people associate raw foods with nibbling on some lettuce leaves and carrots. Although I want to valid those foods, eating raw foods is so much more than that! Raw food is not a diet, but it’s a lifestyle. And to me, it is a lifestyle of abundance, radiance, glow, colors, vibrancy, and deep connection – to Mother Earth, to my body, and to all living beings …

“Because we are what we eat,
we can literally transform our bodies and minds
by choosing an inspiring diet.”

The fancy part about raw salads is the dressing, indeed. You can get super creative and mix a bunch of different veggies, herbs and spices, nuts and seeds (or nut/seed butters), even fruits into it. However, today I want to show you how simple, quick and easy a delicious and nutritious salad recipe can be. First and foremost, because I care so much about gut health and overall wellbeing. The simpler your meal, the easier to digest, the more you get out of it.

By the way, you can also use these dressings as a sauce for zucchini or cucumber noodles, or as a dip for whatever you fancy dipping in there. 🙂
