What We Avoided:
With making our own simple dressings we avoid the common elements of preservatives, artificial flavors and the always confusing "natural flavors". All of which add a grey cloud over the digestion and inflammation process. Which means it's more beneficial to just avoid it, rather then take the chance. Sticking to natural, whole, organic ingredients take the chance away and provides you with the best opportunity in this process of healing and maintaining great nutrition.
