After reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and obsessing over it’s wisdom, I have set an intention to write/blog/photograph/create/connect for one hour per day.
There are so many fascinating ideas about creativity in this work, and one that struck me as particularly meaningful today was this,”What you produce is not necessarily always sacred. What IS sacred is the time that you spend working on the project, and what that time does to expand your imagination, and what that expanded imagination does to transform your life.” Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic
Here are some more totally tasty dressing ideas from my blog with less or no sugar, fat and salt that were created post Big Lists:
1 16 ounce jar of your favorite salsa (as spicy as you like it, salt free if you can get it)
2 cups alternative milk (if you want a totally nut free dressing, choose soy, rice or oat milk)
1/2-3/4 cup nutritional yeast (depending on how cheezy you like it)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (if your salsa is not hot to begin with)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 tsp dried onion
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
Cheezy Red Pepper Sauce
2 12 ounce jars of roasted red peppers, drained
1 large roasted red pepper from a jar
1 15 ounce can no salt navy or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
¾ cup water
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp chopped shallot, or 1 tsp onion powder
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 large date
Fresh black pepper
Place all ingredients into a high powered blender and blend until very smooth.
I can’t say what the future holds for me and my salad dressings, but one thing that I am sure of after 45 years on this planet: the only thing constant is change!
Don’t forget to order your copy of Big Magic. I don’t care what you enjoy doing, this book is going to radically change your perception of it!
