Why You Should NEVER Use Store Bought Salad Dressings!

Why You Should NEVER Use Store Bought Salad Dressings!

Healthy Salad Dressing Recipe to Lose WeightIf you want to truly eat healthy, enhance your fat loss and stay away from some of the really bad additives in processed foods, 1 thing you should get rid of from your diet is typical store-bought salad dressing.

I personally always try to stay away from pre-made salad dressings from the store now days, and here's the reason why:

1. The majority of all store bought salad dressings contain a pretty good amount of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Unless you're in a good health food store, it's near impossible to locate a salad dressing that does not contain a high amounts of HFCS.

2. Almost all store-bought salad dressings contain heavily refined soybean oil and/or refined canola oil... both of which are VERY unhealthy. Yes, that's correct, canola oil IS unhealthy, despite the marketing propaganda you've been fed claiming that it's healthy.

Because of the refining process of both soy bean or canola oils, the polyunsaturated component of the oils is oxidized and makes these oils very inflammatory inside your body. Also, soy bean oil is WAY too high in omega-6 fatty acids which throws your omega-6 to omega-3 balance out of whack.

Everyone knows that olive oil is healthier, but when it comes to store bought salad dressings... Even salad dressings that claim to be "made with olive oil" on the FRONT label are kind of deceptive, because if you look at the ingredients on the BACK label, they are almost ALWAYS made of mostly refined soy bean oil or canola oil as the main oil, with only a very small amount of actual olive oil as a secondary oil.

So here's how to avoid all of these bad unhealthy store bought salad dressings and make your own quick and easy SUPER healthy salad dressing...

The Quick and Easy Recipe for Super-Healthy Salad Dressing

Healthy-Fat Blend Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

Fill your salad dressing container with these approximate ratios of liquids:

This homemade salad dressing mixture is Healthy & Delicious, and I never ever get tired of it!

The reason I choose to blend the extra virgin olive oil half & half with the Udo's Choice Oil is that they make up for what each lacks... And even though extra virgin olive oil is healthy and contains important antioxidants, it's monounsaturated, and is low in the essential fatty acids (EFAs). The Udo's Choice Oil is higher in unrefined polyunsaturated oils with a good healthy balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids.

There are several variations of the Udo's Choice Oil, and one of them (labeled DHA 3-6-9 Blend) even contains a DHA algae oil blended into the mix along with organic flax oil, coconut oil, evening primrose oil, rice bran oil, oat germ and bran oil, and a few others.

Overall, blending Udo's Oil with extra virgin olive oil makes nearly a perfect oil blend for salad dressings with an awesome taste and great health benefits. If you can't find Udo's Choice Oil Blends (you can find Udo's at almost any health food store), there are other EFA oil blends on the market...just make sure that they are COLD-processed to protect the EFAs. You shouldn't ever heat an EFA oil blend!

Give this homemade super healthy salad dressing a try! You will be doing your body a big favor by staying away from the harmful additives in store bought salad dressings.

Enjoy!
