Creative Salads & D.I.Y. Dressings

img_3329

“A salad simply is too wonderful a moment in the meal to waste on assumptions…make one of an ingredient about which you get excited, or of whatever looks most lively, or of whatever you have around already.”1

Salad plates and bowls are a great way to take action this year, to increase your intake of fresh, whole, raw, organic, natural foods, and infuse a little extra antioxidant and immune boosting power into your daily diet. Humble ingredients, or more daring, a salad need not be lettuce at all if its not in season…and a dressing need never be boring from a bottle!

Whether your salad base is cold roasted beets, sweet potato, asparagus, broccoli, red pepper, or cauliflower – boiled green beans or egg – spinach, kale or romaine – whether it has added lentils, rice, beans, cold pasta – sweet onion or the extra crunch of walnuts, hemp hearts, cashews, chia seeds, or pepitas – a touch of sweetness from berries, citrus, apple, or pomegranate seeds, or saltiness from goat cheese, tuna, or anchovies, most people agree that the salad “dressing” can make or break the final enjoyment of it!

roasted-salad

Many commercial salad dressings, though tantalizing to our taste buds, are actually made with unhealthy fats, sugars, and undesirable additives.

Once you have the basic ingredients on hand, making your own dressing  is quick, easy, healthy, and delicious!

Use the following basic ‘recipes’ as a guide to make your own D.I.Y. versions. Taste and tweak as you go before drizzling them over your salad plate. Soon you’ll be whipping one up each time with your own favourite healthy ingredients.

Since they are not heated, salad dressings, like breakfast smoothies, are a great way to add the antioxidant and immune boosting power found in a drop or two of genuine Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. We’ve suggested a few to choose from according to taste.

Keep unused vinaigrettes in a glass jar in refrigerator and use them until their gone! They’re also lovely drizzled over steamed veggies, rice, or cooked pasta.

whisking-dressing

D.I.Y. BASIC VINAIGRETTE ~ Whisk the following ingredients together in a measuring cup or small bowl, or shake together in a jar with a tight fitting lid:

1/3 cup organic extra virgin Olive oil OR Avocado oil

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard OR your favourite Hummus

1 Tablespoon Wine vinegar (red or white) OR Balsamic vinegar (Note: if using apple Cider vinegar reduce to 1 teaspoon)

1 Tablespoon Lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon Pink salt OR Sea salt

1 Garlic clove smashed and finely minced on top of the salt on cutting board (to soak up its oil)

1 Shallot or slice of Sweet onion finely chopped (optional) – NOTE: adding onion or shallot to the vinaigrette ahead of time lessens their pungency and pulls out their sweetness.

1 drop of a genuine Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil of your choice (according to taste you’re going for and other salad ingredients): Examples ~ Lemon EO, Jade Lemon EO, Lime EO, Orange EO, Grapefruit EO, Citrus Fresh EO Blend, Lemongrass EO, Clove EO, Ginger EO, Basil EO, Coriander EO, Fennel EO, Dill EO, Marjoram EO, Tarragon EO, Thyme EO, Celery Seed EO, Black Pepper EO.

A drop of Clove oil added to your dressing, for example, is lovely with beets. Jade Lemon in a fruit salad. Ginger with green beans and cashews. Basil with spinach and chick peas. Coriander with roasted sweet potato and kale, Thyme or Tarragon with tomatoes and tuna. Black Pepper with eggs and romaine.

BEET THIS Antioxidant Hot Beverage

beet-this-hot-drink

So we’ll just come right out and say it…Here at Ounces Of Prevention we love beets, and we hold cloves in very high regard! If you have a strong aversion to either of these superfoods, you can surf on to the next post because there’s no avoiding the flagrant beet-ness and clovey goodness of this gorgeous hot beverage.

The main point of drinking such a beverage is not it’s taste but what it will do for you. Essentially, for health and longevity, we need antioxidants and lots of them, to thwart free radical damage to the cells of our body.

[Ounces Of Prevention respectfully requests that you DO NOT COPY & PASTE FROM THIS ARTICLE: Please DO share our site!]

What are free radicals anyway?

Back to school for just a moment: The atoms within our cells molecules are always seeking stability by maintaining a full set of electrons. However, when weak bonds split, some molecules are left with an odd unpaired electron, otherwise known as “free radicals”.

The free radical then goes around trying to capture a needed electron to regain stability. Free radicals will generally attack the nearest stable molecule, “stealing” its electron. When “attacked” that molecule loses its electron, and it becomes a free radical itself, beginning a chain reaction. Once the process is started, it cascades, resulting in the disruption of a living cell.

Free radicals are ‘bad guys’ which damage cells in our body, ultimately causing premature aging, oxidationhardening of arteries, cell mutation and disease processes.

Free radicals arise normally during the body’s metabolic processes, but unfortunately, environmental factors such as pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke, toxic chemicals and herbicides also spawn free radicals. Normally, the body can handle some free radicals, but if antioxidants are unavailable, or if the free-radical production becomes excessive, damage can occur. It is well understood that free radical damage accumulates with age.

How do Antioxidants help?

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, ending the “electron-stealing chain reaction” by donating one of their own electrons.

Antioxidants themselves remain stable as they act as “free radical scavengers” – preventing cell and tissue damage that can lead to cellular damage and disease.

Some antioxidants, like Vitamin C, for example, are water soluble, and some, like Vitamin E, are fat soluble. We need both…

Essential oils are both…Chiefly fat soluble, and partly water soluble, the impressively tiny molecules of 100.00 % pure therapeutic grade essential oils absorp and penetrate through the layers of the skin and the lymph glands and capillaries carry them to the bloodstream.

Incredible Antioxidant Potential of CLOVE Essential Oil

You will see ORAC ratings listed for each single essential oil in the Essential Oils Desk Reference, Sixth Edition but what does it mean? Did you know that many of the Young Living’s Therapeutic Grade essential oils have some of the highest ORAC scores of all the essential oils?

ORAC stands for “Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity” – meaning the capacity of a plant substance to ABSORB free radicals (bad guys) which damage cells in our body.

Essential oils have the highest ORAC scores of any known substances…this equals HUGE free radical scavenging activity!

Each essential oil (properly grown, harvested, and distilled by Young Living) undergoes a lab test which quantifies its total antioxidant capacity, measured as ‘trolox equivalents’ (or uTE/100g) using the antioxidant trolox (i.e. vitamin E) as a standard. (Vitamin E is used as the standard because it is most abundant fat-soluble antioxidant in the body, and one of the most efficient chain-breaking antioxidants available. It has been the primary known defender against oxidation and primary defender against lipid peroxidation).

ORAC scores of some YLTG Essential Oils:

The higher the score, the greater the oil’s capacity to absorb and neutralize free radicals…

PATCHOULI = 49,400*
VETIVER = 74,300*
BLACK PEPPER = 79,700*
LAURUS NOBILIS (Bay Laurel) = 98,900*
GINGER = 99,300*
NUTMEG = 158,100*
ROSE (Rosa damascene) essential oil = 160,400*
FENNEL = 238,400*
CORIANDER = 298,300*

LAVENDER EO has an ORAC score of 360 uTE/100g*

MYRRH has an ORAC score of 379,800*

LEMON EO = 660 uTE/100g*

CLOVE = HAS AN ORAC SCORE OF  1,078,700* ~ WOW !!!!!

mighty-clove

We benefit from the free radical scavenging activity of pure essential oils simply by inhaling or diffusing them, and certainly applying them topically, as their infinitesimally small molecules permeate our bloodstream via the lungs when inhaled, and flood our entire cellular matrix with free-radical scavenging molecules. When we add a GRAS essential oil (designated ‘Generally Regarded As Safe’ – by the American Food and Drug Administration) to a beverage and consume it we also benefit greatly.

What’s In A Beet or a Berry?

On a nutrition note, and by comparison, the ORAC scores of some HEALTHY antioxidant-rich FOODS (certain berries, fruits, & vegetables) are not nearly as high as pure essential oils, but are still notable, including our humble and beloved beet, and at the top of it’s class, the incredible NingXia Wolfberry.

Carrots ORAC score 210
Oranges ORAC score 750
Beets ORAC score 840
Raspberries ORAC score 1,220
Strawberries ORAC score 1,540
Blueberries ORAC score 2,400
Kale ORAC score 1,770
Chinese Wolfberries ORAC score  30,300 ~ WOW !!!!!

NOTE: Chinese (NingXia) Wolfberries are one of earth’s most powerful antioxidant fruits! If you have NingXia Red juice on hand you may also wish to add an ounce to the following recipe:

Pumpkin Spice Muffins


The taste of autumn, Thanksgiving, and Octoberfest, pumpkin spice muffins are perfect for entertaining, school lunches, or treating yourself along with a hot cup of your favourite tea.

This recipe makes 1  1/2 dozen regular sized muffins. We like to fill a standard muffin tin with batter, and divide the remainder in a mini muffin tin – (tiny muffins are great for kids and lunches. Set your timer to take the mini muffins out of the oven about 10 minutes sooner than the larger ones!)

INGREDIENTS:

4 fresh eggs

1 cup + 1/4 cup Sucanat (unrefined dehydrated cane juice) OR Coconut palm sugar

1/2 cup organic coconut oil (it is solid just below room temperature, so melt some by placing near stove as it preheats, or by placing jar of coconut oil in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes until you can pour off 1/2 cup).

1/2 cup avocado oil, or organic EVO

1 small can organic pumpkin purée

3 cups Spelt flour (light, or whole) OR Einkorn flour (the original non-hybridized wheat. See source link below for wholesale access to Gary’s True Grit Einkorn flour).

1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon allspice

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon fine Himalayan pink salt, or sea salt

1 1/2 cup organic Thompson raisins

Young Living Nutmeg essential oil – dip clean toothpick in top of essential oil bottle and swirl toothpick in batter.

Young Living Ginger essential oil – dip clean toothpick in top of essential oil bottle and swirl toothpick in batter.

Paper muffin tin liners.

Roasted no salt OR Raw Pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds) for tops (optional).

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.

Beat eggs slightly. Add the 1 cup of Sucanat, the oils, and the pumpkin purée. Beat until well blended.

Add dry ingredients, mixing until smooth.

Stop and add the nutmeg and ginger essential oils by dipping a clean toothpick in top of essential oil bottles and swirling toothpick in batter (this uses less than a drop and provides enough flavour). Mix a few more seconds.

Stir in raisins.

Line muffin tins with paper liners, and fill 2/3 full with batter. Sprinkle tops with remaining Sucanat and pepitas (optional).

Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes, until wooden pick inserted in middle of a muffin comes out clean.

Serve warm or cool and store in refrigerator for up to one week.

Smoothies 101 ~ Liquid Wellness

smoothies-101-graphic

Smoothies are a great way to ensure adequate intake of macro nutrients (protein, good fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals) as well as adding important protective phytonutrients, antioxidants, trace minerals, and even extra fibre to your daily diet!

TIPS & TRICKS for SMOOTHIE MAKING:

Choose Your Preferred Liquid Base ~ 1 cup per serving

  • Organic unsweetened Almond Milk or other nut milk
  • Hemp Seed Milk
  • Organic unsweetened Coconut or Cashew milk
  • Unsweetened organic fruit and/or vegetable juice
  • Pure water or hydrogen-rich water

What Makes A Smoothie ‘Smooth’?

  • Use an electric blender, handheld immersion blender, or ‘Magic Bullet’-type blender.
  • Add a piece of banana, or avocado (avocados are a healthy fat source!).
  • Add another healthy fat such as organic coconut oil, cold pressed Flax seed oil, or Hemp seed oil.

TIP:  Ripe bananas or avocados may be peeled, cut into portion sizes and FROZEN to preserve them for later use. When you remove a wedge of frozen avocado from freezer, drop into a cup of warm water for a couple of minutes to soften up prior to blending.

LIKE IT SWEETER?

CHOCOHOLIC? ~ the following additions will satisfy your craving!

  • Add 1 Tablespoon potassium & iron-rich Royal Dutch dark cocoa powder, or 1 teaspoon Cacao powder

HORMONAL concerns? Menopause? Memory? Migraines?

LONGEVITY, IMMUNITY, ANTI-AGING:

Gary Young’s “Longevity” daily essential oil blend to your morning smoothie: Longevity Vitality™ essential oil blend OR a drop each of one or each of the ‘Vitality’ (US) or ‘Plus’ (Canada) oils (certified G.R.A.S. or F.A. by the FDA, and as NHP’s by Health Canada – genuine Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils:  Clove essential oil, and/or Thyme essential oil, Orange essential oil and/or Lemon essential oil, and genuine YLTG Frankincense essential oil.

thyme

BUSY MORNINGS or ON THE ROAD?

TIP: Smoothies may be blended ahead of time and stored in a sealed glass container in the refrigerator or in a cooler, however, it is best to blend and consume your smoothie right away. Nutrient loss is inevitable as delicate ingredients are exposed to oxygen and light.

NingXia Red wholesome beverage blend is available in 60 ml Single Serving sealed packets making it a convenient solution for Super-Food on-the-go!

Einkorn – The Original Wheat

einkorn grain

Einkorn “original non-hybridized wheat”contains 1.21% gluten, in contrast to 9.92% in today’s ‘whole wheat flour’. Einkorn is the oldest “staff of life” variety of wheat. It’s natural genetic code means compatability with your digestive system and your body.

Today Young Living® is bringing einkorn wheat back to its rightful prominence in the world.

The first test crop of einkorn was planted in Mona, Utah in 2011.” Several farmers in the United States and Canada have been sent seed from the farm and are growing and experimenting to see how well the seed produces in their areas.” [Gary Young, The World Leader in Essential Oils. ©2015, by Mary Young.]

The einkorn kernels being harvested first made their way into the marketplace in the form of pancake mix and spaghetti. Now the flour has become available.

Einkorn_Flour

Scientists who have been studying einkorn for years say it is easier to digest, contains vitamins, minerals, and proteins important to our health, and is probably the most preferred grain to eat.

🌾

“Today, on the Young Living Farm in France, Gary Young is planting non hybridized einkorn seed and then harvesting it in the old fashioned way by letting the cut stalks stand in the field for 7 to 10 days to allow the germination process to start before threshing. When Gary began searching for this ancient grain back in 1990, he found it to be very illusive. He discovered small patches growing in Hunzaland, in remote areas of Turkey, and eventually on the east bank of the Jordan River Valley”. ~ [Gary Young, The World Leader in Essential Oils. ©2015, by Mary Young.]
