If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I’m a huge fan of the keto diet because it eliminates sugar and replaces it with fats that our bodies need to thrive.
However, there’s keto… and then there’s clean keto. Clean keto means eating mostly plant-based foods that nourish your body, keep your
brain thriving, fight inflammation, and give you a youthful glow with a flat tummy.
The ingredients in this dressing and the simple salad that goes with it are a perfect example.
I’ll have lots more examples for you on Thursday in my post about using coconut to get more clean keto fats in your diet. Plus, this easy dressing is delicious. I usually double the recipe and save some for another salad in the next few days.
In the meantime, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
