Ok. So I like to KNOW what I’m putting into my body AND I eat alot of salad! Call me a rabbit!! I went from the store bought ranch dressing kinda girl to straight up oil and balsamic vinegar OR JUST a bit of balsamic vinegar drizzled on it. I thought I’d try out a little twist on citrus and WALAH love it!! Citrus Hemp Seed Dressing!
Hemp seed is a great source of vitamins and omega 3’s and more! It’s nutty flavor paired really well with these other ingredients adding a creaminess with the contrasting citrus flavors! Check out the photo below with some listings of the benefits if hemp seed!
Make it yourself
1/4 C Fresh squeeze Orange Juice (I added in the pulp of an 1/8 of my orange)
1/4 C Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
1 Tbsp Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
2 Tbsp Raw Shelled Hemp Seed
1/2 tsp Minced Garlic
Sprinkle of Salt & Pepper
Blend in blender and enjoy!! Refrigerate – Shake before serving as it will separate.
I ate it with salmon on my salad and it was delishhhh!
I made a few batches of this but for a few servings alone you really only need 1 large orange & 1 large lime.
I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
