Having a personal blender is awesome! Throw together your raw dressing, so even if you're putting cooked toppings onto your salad you can still benefit from a healthy, raw dressing. Yum!
Several T cold-pressed olive oil
Juice 1 lime
Handful of fresh cilantro
Small dash apple cider vinegar
Blend dressing until smooth and creamy!
Goes well with brown rice and black beans on a bed of organic lettuce, tomato and avocado!
I've also mastered the baked chip! Slice your corn tortillas into small chips. I've noticed that more, smaller chips make you feel like you're eating more than you actually are. :)
Now, lay out in your toaster oven. Spray lightly with olive oil sprayer. Sprinkle with salt. Toast lightly, on 3 (about medium). Flip all slices. Spray lightly again, sprinkle with salt if you're like me and love your salt! Toast on 3 (about medium), twice.
This last step is crucial - do not open the oven door! Let it continue cooking while you finish making your salad. Peek into the oven until the corn slices begin to get darker.
These are SO fantastic!
A few fresh mint sprigs
Juice of half a lemon
Dash of raw agave
Mix! This is an amazing fresh mint lemonade. Enjoy it every day! Lemons have more vitamin C than oranges.
