I love caesar dressing, but thanks to my many lactose intolerance, I can’t have it!…..unless it’s paleo! It’s taken me a bit to perfect this one, and it may sound weird to some, but it definitely tastes like real caesar dressing….seriously.

1 egg yolk

4 anchovy fillets

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 juice from whole lime (you can use lemon, but I like the more tart taste from lime)

2 - 4 FRESH garlic gloves….i said 2 to 4 because some people (like my mom) really like that garlic flavor!

Salt and cracked ground pepper…..however much you want

Blend all of these ingredients together in a food processor until smooth. Then……

Slowly add in ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil, emulsifying thoroughly with each pour.

Voila! You have your dairy-free dressing!

Nutrition: 1,638 Households Reached

Here, it’s estimated that over 60% of children are malnourished. This project targets families with young children, empowering mothers to give their children the nutrients needed for their healthy development. Project coordinator, Manuel, trains and works with local health volunteers to run household workshops and gather vital data regarding child health and food security. Any chronically malnourished child is then monitored by the volunteers and further support given to their families. Meanwhile other Nema projects are focusing on agriculture, enterprise and education to ensure that one day no children will be left vulnerable to malnutrition.

Carbs Carbs Carbs!

 Despite their bad reputation, carbohydrates are a necessary part of good nutrition and are essential for the body to perform at its best. Those low-carbohydrate fad diets out there portray carbohydrates as an evil contributor to obesity and other health conditions. However, your body needs carbohydrates, and if you eat the right kind and appropriate amount, you will be receiving the health benefits that carbohydrates offer.

I’m putting together a little something to explain why!
