1 part olive oil, 1/2 part dijon mustard, 1/8 part lemon juice. starch will thicken your dressings. either plain cornstarch or arrowroot will do it without any real taste to it as well. i like to use canned mandarin oranges with a little bit of their juice on spinach salads as the dressing. if you like a drier salad you can just use fruit as the wet. i also make honey mustard this way: 2 parts mustard, 2 parts honey, 1 part olive oil, and enough vinegar [preferably apple cider] to allow the mix to coat the volume of salad. Salsa Vinegar Broth FF cottage cheese
Going meatless has been a great experience. I have found new spices I like that I never would have tried before. Food even tastes better. No more cravings. I just can't slip or could be a tsunami of food. I realized it is an addiction to sugar and fat that keeps me headed in the wrong direction. A little here, a little more there turns into every meal and snack, shoveling high fat food in my mouth like it's my last meal. I don't want that anymore. I may be starting over again but I have not thrown in the towel yet.
I have been the same. Effort = Results. I've lost some weight but now I feel like if I don't exercise everyday I won't get the results I am looking for. Time to step it up a knotch! Less computer time more treadmill time.
