Spectrum Organic Salad Dressings

The human body can do a lot of things, but it can’t produce essential fatty acids (EFAs).

And that can be a problem for Americans, whose standard diet provides plenty of omega-6 fats, often from animal protein, but few omega-3s. Without a proper balance (it should be three to one in favor of omega-3s), the former can easily produce inflammatory conditions like skin rashes, and digestive troubles and other unpleasantness. The happy news is that the “good” EFAs (which support everything from healthy nerves to happy skin) are getting easier to come by these days in products like these zippy, organic salad dressings from Spectrum. A great way to improve your salad’s nutritional profile in a single toss, flavors like Pomegranate Chipotle, Lemon Sesame and Garlic Ranch also dress a lot more than salad: Drizzle on grilled fish, marinate some tofu or splash over steamed veggies. These are great go-to guys to ramp up the health value and tastiness of just about any meal. Find them at your local natural grocery for about $4 a bottle.
