Hello there! Are you on a vegan diet? Keto diet? Or someone that needs some changes in his/her lifestyle by eating healthier food? Speaking of healthy food, all people think of is eating veggies and fruits, white meat and less fatty foods. Most of them think the healthy way is to eat homemade salads.

Yes, those green-leafy salads combined with your favorite salad dressings. Can those salad dressings that we can buy in the market also help us maintain the healthy lifestyle that we need? Do you know that you can make your own healthy salad dressing at home?

This recipe helps you make homemade salad dressings that will spice up your salads. The ingredients for salad dressing can be found in the kitchen or in the market like olive oil, salt and pepper, raspberry, avocado and honey mustard.

Avocado has a calorie count of 160 calories/100 grams which is greatly helpful for dieting. It also contains vitamin C, vitamin B-6 and magnesium with a total fat of 15 grams or 23% that can be considered as healthy fat. Raspberry has a calorie count of 53/100 grams and consists almost 50% vitamin C with a total fat of 0.7 grams or 1%.

Olive oil has a great impact in making salad dressing because this oil has no cholesterol, sodium, sugar or carbohydrates. Although it has a total of 884 calorie/100 grams, it’s still the best to use for healthy meal prep for your salad dressing.

You can search the nutrifacts of the ingredients that you would like to use in your salad to avoid any high-calorie intake.

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
