Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends. It’s coming up quickly and I am posting links to my favorite vegan Thanksgiving recipes below. Life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately. I’ve gone and fallen in love, and so my world has been flipped around. 

Sometimes I wonder if I manifested a HUGE transition, much bigger than expected, with all my talk about life changes. But it’s all wonderful, so all good. I plan to be back posting a little more regularly soon. .. and I’ll tell you more about all this in an upcoming post soon too.

Always be Thankful!

I have lots to be thankful for.  What are you thankful for? We know that giving thanks creates abundance and expansion, so appreciate all the wonderful people and abundance around you. I know you are surrounded by it too. We all are.

Last year I posted my Favorite Raw and Vegan Dishes. Make sure to check out that link for some great ideas. Also I have a list with all my recipes for easy access to more healthy meal ideas.

I wish you and yours a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!!

Salad Inspiration!

I always make at least one big amazing salad, and ideally more. Encourage people to eat salads by making them beautiful and then everyone will feel so much better, energized and filled with life as well as satiated and full!

Happy Thanksgiving - Basil Garlic Dressing Recipe - Festive Salads

 

Basil Garlic Dressing Recipe

Ingredients

¼ cup Olive oil
3 Tbsp Lemon juice
1 Tbsp Agave
8 Basil leaves
1 to 2 Garlic cloves
dash of Salt and Pepper

Directions

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

So easy! and I have a variation that I love. It’s made by simply adding a bit of mayo. My special healthy vegan hemp oil mayo recipe that is. I love this recipe and usually make it with hemp oil but it can be made just as easily with olive or avocado oil also.

Here’s how to make the thicker creamy version:

Add 2 Tbsp Hemp Oil Mayonnaise to the above recipe and blend until creamy and smooth.

That’s it.

It’s so easy and so much healthier to make your own dressings at home.
