Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
For those of you that want to experience the benefits of fermented foods but haven’t tried making them yet or don’t have a steady supply on hand, using raw apple cider vinegar in your recipes is an easy way to consume more fermented foods.
According to Paul Bragg in his book, “Apple Cider Vinegar Miracle Health System”, some benefits of raw apple cider vinegar are:
- Rich in potassium and live enzymes.
- Helps promote youthful skin and a vibrant, healthy body.
- Helps digestion and controls weight.
What is nutritional yeast?
Nutritional yeast is yellow, flaky and has a cheesy, nutty flavor. It’s full of minerals, B vitamins and contains 18 amino acids. Seriously, it lives up to its name. I always have some in my pantry and sprinkle it on stir-fry when I'm not using it in salad dressings. Nutritional yeast is available in most health food stores or online.
Extra virgin olive oil
I use extra virgin olive oil as the healthy fat in this dressing to hold all of the ingredients together. It contains monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) which are considered a healthy dietary fat, as opposed to saturated fats and trans fats.
Himalayan sea salt
Lastly, I use Himalayan sea salt to add that extra punch of minerals. It’s the purest salt in the world and is said to have come from the primal sea.
- 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
- 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
- Juice of 1 lemon
- ¼ tsp Himalayan sea salt
- Combine all ingredients in a container or small mason jar.
- Seal the jar and shake it until the ingredients are well combined.
- Eat it with your favorite salad.
This makes enough for one person to last the work week.
