Creamy flavoursome protein loaded anti-inflammatory turmeric salad dressing with a hint of PB…because you can never have enough PB in your life!
I’m calling this a salad dressing but really you can use it to spruce up just about any meal. Now that I’m in bikini prep I do find myself towards simple nutrient dense meals that are easy to track and leave me feeling as satisfied and nourished as possible. However…that definitely doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice on flavour or satisfaction factor!
This salad dressing is truly awesome! Packed with nutritious deliciousness… my favourite salad to drown is definitely this chicken, asparagus ribbon and toasted seed combo with a mound of chopped romaine. So fresh and satisfying! I just can’t get enough of it. To keep this vegan friendly replace the whey protein with pea protein…for a paleo and nut free friendly option use sunflower seed butter to replace the peanut flour. Obviously the macros will change whatever substitutions you make, but simply stick the ingredients into your macro tracker and create a new custom recipe for yourself. Tracking doesn’t mean you can only eat whole foods in their simple form, variety is the spice of life and sheer sanity!
You could totally add this to a rice dish, or use it as a dipping sauce for pretty much whatever you fancy from raw or roast veggies to homemade chicken fingers. I reckon it would also be pretty awesome mixed up with some chopped hard boiled eggs.
In case you missed it, I posted my third vlog yesterday which includes a full leg workout as well as clips of my second posing class! Would love if you could like the vid and subscribe to the channel if you’re interested in keeping up with my journey and get an insight into the girl behind the camera lens!
