It’s always good to create a peaceful interior environment that also smells good too – longtime must haves for me and so it feels natural to be able to expand into this lifestyle area of wellness for you all to enjoy – in addition to other Jody Watley branded items I have available. Throughout my adult home life, and career travel, backstage in my dressing room – candles and interior sprays have been a staple to create an environment that feels peaceful and smells good too. Growing up my son and daughter’s friends would always call our home ‘the peaceful house and traveling I’d always get that my room always made the hallway smell good and backstage at venues which are often not glamorous and unpleasant making me always travel with scents and candles that bring calm and peace.
To begin to bring this part of my passion to you now in these challenging times, to encourage you and be a part of creating greater peace and tranquility is very special.
Meatless Monday – though salads are great every day! Do something good for your mind, body and spirit each day .. as well as the environment. Health is wealth. I usually make my own dressing too, no hidden calories. I have some edamame in this mixture organic mixed greens salad for a bit of protein, roasted corn as summer comes to an end too .. black beans are good with this one as well. I added almonds rather than croutons.
My Go To Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing :
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oul
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or orange juice, or pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon fresh crushed garlic (optional) – I love garlic and it’s good for you! No fresh garlic? You can substitute with garlic powder.
1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
1 teaspoon dried or fresh parley- you can also use cilantro to change up recipe and depending on what you’re pairing it with
1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
Fresh cracked pepper or a course grind.
In small bowl whisk together all ingredients, you can also use your food processor.
Use a measuring spoon to drizzle on salad as you wish and depending on size of your salad. If you keep these items handy you can always whip together a cute and healthy vinaigrette dressing.
