happy new year, y’all! How’s 2016 treating you so far? Any resolutions? Made? Broken? Accomplished?
1- find a way to take in the arts about once a month. This can be anything from a play, to a museum, to a concert 😉😉😉
2-read a book a month. ( die hard may disagree, but I’m including listening to audio books as well. I’m current,y listening to Carly Simon’s ‘boys in the trees’. It’s her memoir and she is narrating it. I’ve always been a huge Carly fan, but I have to say, listening to this has made me borderline obsessed. )
3-bullseye every damn day <— failing epically at this so far
Those are the ones I can tell you about 😁😁😁
Sooo… My cousin was chatting about hemp seeds this morning on her Facebook page. I mentioned a dressing that I used to make using hemp seeds as the base. I went to find it on the blog and couldn’t. So.. I threw a couple of ingredients together.
creamy citrus-hemp dressing
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/2 shallot, roughly diced
2 clementines, peeled (you could sub approximate amount of other citrus if the spirit moves you)
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and pepper
Place hemp seeds and citrus In high -powered blender ( those single serving ninja-type shake makers will work too )
Pulse a few times to blend. Slowly add olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
That’s it, folks!
This is crazy delisious. At first you get the sweetness from the clementine, then the creaminess from the hempseeds and the tang from the shallot. It marries perfectly with greens. I used baby spinach
This dressing is also super- healthy! It’s loaded with vitamin C, protein and omega-3 fatty acids ( helps prevent heart disease and reduce inflammation) annnnnd… Since it’s made with all plant-based ingredients, it’s cholesterol-free! And no guilt!
Keep working on those resolutions,friends 😘
