My Favourite Way to Pump Up Greens!

Has anyone ever looked at the nutritional information at a restaurant offering salads and been BLOWN AWAY by the amount of calories in it??

When I was starting my fitness journey, I would order a salad when eating out, unknowing that calorie-wise, I might often be better off with a steak!

Calorie counts for a salad at a restaurant can be anywhere from 700 – 1300 Calories… sometimes more than half of your caloric intake for weight maintenance!

The reason?

Usually, it’s an excess of fat which spikes the calories! Nuts, seeds (pumpkin seeds are a popular topper, weighing in at 640 calories for 1/4 cup) and fat-based salad dressings can add up quickly.

This dressing is easy to make and pack in a container as a dipping sauce or salad dressing, or top foods with at home. It’s my go-to for a big crunchy bowl of greens!


Nutritional Information

20 Calories
0 grams Fat
4 grams Carbs
0 grams Protein


  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp coconut aminos (You could also use soy sauce!)
  • 1 dropper full stevia (You can make it without sweetener as well- the sweetness adds a nice tang but is not necessary!)
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp garlic powder, pinch chili powder


  • Whisk all ingredients together with a fork!

The easiest method ever! This makes a tasty chicken marinade as well!
