If you’ve ever wondered about fermented foods and whether they’re actually good for you, my last post will give you everything you need to know about the good, the bad, and the ugly of fermented foods.
While fermented foods supply a good source of pre and probiotics, they also are high in YEAST!
Yeast is an opportunistic parasite that is ok to live in your gut, but should NEVER live in your blood. And because EVERYONE has leaky gut to some degree or another, adding fermented foods into your diet is gasoline on the fire, and is making you acidic and inflamed!
So today I am sharing delicious salad dressing that doesn’t use ANY fermented products such as vinegar!
Instead, it is made from fresh organic lemon juice and EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil), which is highly alkaline-forming once metabolized in your body.
You’ll also love the textures and tastes in this salad that make it really satisfying.
Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
