Tea Vinaigrettes, Part 1

Tea Vinaigrettes, Part 1

Summer makes for the best salads! We wanted to show you different ways to use your favorite teas in recipes, and salad dressings are a great way to use them. In the first installation of this summer salad dressing series, we're giving you two great recipes: a fat-free Strawberry Pomegranate Vinaigrette, and a Blueberry Mango Balsamic dressing. Let's get started. 

 

Strawberry Pomegranate Vinaigrette 

 

1 cup fresh Strawberries 

1 cup strong cold-brew of I Heart Pomegranates 

2 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar 

4-5 large Mejdool Dates, pitted 

1 pinch Himalayan Salt

 

Blend all ingredients together, and you're done! This pairs great with nuts (macadamias are wonderful), coconut, and herbed cheeses (my favorite are nut-based goat-style cheeses). 

 

 

Mango Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette 

 

3/4 cup strong cold-brew of Blueberry Thrill (do not oversteep, as this will get bitter)

1 medium Red Mango, ripe 

1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted 

1/2 medium Avocado 

2 tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar 

1 tbsp. Lemon Juice 

1/4 tsp. Vietnamese Cinnamon 

1 Date, pitted (optional)

2 leaves Basil 

Salt, to taste

 

This dressing is rich but mild and complex, and works well in salads that feature sweet fruits.

The connection between inflammation and your diet
Is Your "Healthy" Diet Slowly Killing You? The Connection Between Inflammation And The Food You Eat

October 10, 2020

A few years ago, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. This meant that if I wanted to live an energetic and healthy life without having to rely on medications, I had to figure that how to manage inflammation naturally. Because I have a strong background in natural healing using plants and foods, I felt like this was doable. But in order to take my health seriously, I had to make some changes in my diet and lifestyle.
