The 360 no handed spoon whip to vinaigrette
Whether you’re suffering with a concussion and can hardly walk to the fridge, you’re having a jammed day of activities or you’re just lazy, don’t face plant into a bowl of cereal! I have the EASIEST vinaigrette recipe for a super quick & healthy salad!
Do you make your own homemade salad dressing? If not, you should! It’s so easy and much healthier than store bought. I have a secret…you don’t need a recipe and you don’t even really need measuring spoons — all you need is a basic understanding of how oil and vinegar work together. Here is everything you need to know, plus my favourite quick draw salad drizzle.
Don’t be a hangry jerk
Jamaican jerk soft tacos with mango coulis are bursting with flavour, super easy to make and will retard your hanger pangs instantly.
When you’re in the throes of hanger, you’re tempted to reach for that Snickers—stop! Junk foods induce spikes in blood-glucose levels that come crashing down fast. Instead, think nutrient-rich, natural foods and proper meals that help satisfy hunger for as long as possible.
The Scotch pepper found in jerk spice contains capsaicin. Capsaicinoids trick the brain into thinking you’re being burned—owee! The brain responds by releasing endorphins and dopamine. This triggers a sense of euphoria similar to a “runner’s high”. Capsaicin is also used for manufacturing pepper spray—perfect, now when you see that damn bear on the Mashiter you can throw a taco at her.
