Love guacamole and feeling a little adventurous? This recipe provides edgy and colourful twists that are likely to please all those who appreciate mashed avocados.

Dairy-Free Sour Cream and Onion Dip Recipe

This all-raw, nutrient-dense dip is an excellent substitute for dairy-based dips that are commonly served with vegetable platters. The creamy substance of this dip is provided by raw, organic cashews, which are naturally abundant in magnesium, healthy fatty acids, copper, and tryptophan.

 

How to Make a Creamy Dairy-Free Salad Dressing and Dip

I often suggest that clients with any chronic, degenerative condition try a dairy-free diet, as over the years, I've found that most people suffer (sometimes unknowingly) when they ingest casein, a protein found in dairy.

 

Avocado Dill Dressing Recipe

Avocados are abundant in healthy fatty acids (mostly monounsaturated), fiber, potassium, and folate. Avocados are one of nature's best sources of lutein, a natural antioxidant that is needed for healthy eyes and skin.

This is an amazing dressing for a fresh salad, steamed vegetables, on whole grains, or to use as a veggie dip for when you have company over. It can also be a healthy addition to your child's lunch box for school - perfect for dipping their carrots into!

 

How to Make Healthy Salad Dressing

This is a quick look at how I whisk up the famous honey mustard salad dressing that I mentioned in a previous post on putting together impromptu healthy salads.

First, it's best to start with a see-through jar that comes with a lid. This will allow you to roughly eyeball ingredient proportions as you bring them together, and store unused finished product in the refrigerator.

 

How to Make Guacamole

Updated on April 11, 2011

Guacamole is one healthy side dish that is hard to find in good form at a local grocery store. Believe it or not, some brands of prepackaged guacamole don't even contain avocados.

It takes about 3 minutes to whip up a super healthy and tasty side of guacamole. All you need are ripe avocados, a red onion, half a lemon, and sea salt.

 

How to Make Authentic Salsa

One of healthiest herbs that you can include in your diet is fresh cilantro. Abundant in chlorophyll, iron, and a wide variety of phytonutrients, fresh cilantro provides protection against a wide spectrum of diseases, and may even protect you against a buildup of heavy metals.

 

How to Make Hummus

I've tried a number of hummus recipes over the years, and while I've enjoyed just about all of them, nothing beats the ultra simple version that I started with several years ago. All it calls for are chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, and a pinch of sea salt - profoundly simple and profoundly good.

 

Raw, Dairy-Free Cheese Recipes

I've long maintained that pasteurized dairy products should be avoided whenever possible, as regular intake of dairy is associated with a number of health challenges, the most common of which are: chronic ear infections, nasal congestion, acne, eczema, a variety of autoimmune illnesses, and even cancer.

I almost never eat dairy products, but like a lot of people who follow a dairy-free diet, I find myself craving different types of cheese from time to time. I mean, come on, nothing provides a mouthful of flavor like a nice helping of cheese, right?

 

Chickpea Guacamole Recipe

Think of this unique chickpea guacamole to be a combination of hummus and avocado. Rich in both healthy fatty acids and healthy protein, this side dish can easily be a part of a satisfying meal when combined with your favorite grain dish. We love it with brown rice or quinoa.
