How to Make Delicious Paleo Salad Dressings

by Anjolie Flores | Jan 19, 2022 | Diet, Food Sensitivities, Paleo, Recipes

For a lot of us, myself included, we are trying to reach our health goals. This falls mostly on excersize and eating right – the latter of those leads to a lot of salad! However, store bought salad dressings contain unhealthy ingredients like: Soy Oil, Canola Oil, Calcium Disodium EDTA, Trans Fats, Corn Syrup and more. In all, they can be making your salad actually quite unhealthy! This is why I recommend you try one (or more!) of these delicious paleo salad dressings. You won’t regret it!

With these recipes, you can make five different paleo dressings. The times and ingrdients will vairy, which will help fit in with what you already have in your fridge. For the salad itself, I recommend adding some in-season fruits or veggies to make it pop!

Winter: Beets, Oranges, Swiss Chard, Collard Greens

Spring: Apricots, Mushrooms, Onions, Peas, Radishes, Straberries

Summer: Bell Peppers, Black Berries, Blue berries, Corn, Cucumbers, Lima Beans, Raspberries, Tomatoes

Autumn: Beets, Bell Peppers, Broccoli, Cranberries, Ginger, Mushrooms, Onions, Pears, Peas

Apples and Carots are in season all year! There are great ways to combine one of these dressings with some in season produce to create a beautiful and flavorful combination.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
