Though each B vitamin has a specific and important job to do in your body, we want to highlight B12 – because deficiency is quite common. According to NIH, B12 can only be found in animal products or fortified non-animal products. If you are vegan, most nutritional yeast products contain vitamin B12. When you are deficient in B12, symptoms are often fatigue, anemia, and overall weakness. One 3oz serving of salmon contains 80% of the recommended daily value.
This delicious recipe by holistic nutritionist Kayleigh Clark is going to rock your world and ensure you are incorporating vitamin B12 into your diet!
1 piece of wild-caught salmon
Directions: Preheat a skillet with avocado oil on medium heat. Sprinkle all herbs and seasonings (except the lemon) onto both sides of your salmon. Place salmon in skillet and increase heat to medium-high. Cook for 3 minutes, then flip over and cook on the other side for 3-5 minutes. Remove from skillet, squeeze fresh lemon juice on top and serve!
DAIRY-FREE HOMEMADE RANCH
1 cup of avocado or olive oil
juice from 1 lemon (about a tablespoon)
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder (add a clove or 2 of fresh garlic if you love it garlicky!)
1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk (canned)
A few pinches of fresh dill
Directions: Add all ingredients to a blender, bullet, or put in a mason jar and use an immersion blender. I use my bullet for this! Add the fresh dill last so your ranch doesn’t turn green! Keep in a sealed mason jar in the fridge – it will last up to a week.
Toss Dressing with chopped kale and cucumbers.
