A quick note on this recipe! The original version of this post was published back in 2015. Since then I’ve re-tested the recipe, updated the photographs, and the content. I’m republishing it for you today to enjoy! I hope you continue to make and love this delicious and healthy salad dressing. xo


I am totally a believer in the power of a perfect salad dressing. You know the one: the texture coats your salad greens PERFECTLY, and there’s just enough sweet, sour, and salty to hit all the right notes. It adds something unique to your meal but never over power’s the other flavors.

That my friends, is this healthy roasted red pepper dressing in a nutshell.

SALAD GAME ON, BABES!

What’s up mayo lovers?! 

Can I call you that? 

Maybe it’s the midwest girl in me but I am team mayo ALL THE WAY and I’m so excited to show my fellow mayo lovers (too much? I’ll stop 😝) how to make this crazy easy + delicious homemade avocado oil mayonnaise.

I’m just going to start by saying that there is definitely a learning curve when it comes to cleaning up the ingredients in your pantry + refrigerator. 

It took my awhile to sort all all the swaps and ingredients that make up a healthy kitchen. One thing that I learned in this process is that not all mayonnaise is created equal! It’s one of those condiments that has a super wide range between totally inflammatory and full of healthy and nourishing ingredients.

And when given those options, I’ll always take the second!

Especially when it’s also basically the best tasting mayo that you’ll ever have 😉 Continue reading

Friends! Finally the recipe for the best paleo banana bread is ready to be shared with the world. If you follow along regularly with Nyssa’s Kitchen you might know that I am not the most skilled baker. It’s something that I ENJOY doing, but I’ve never really had the knack for creating my own baking recipes.

So when I decide to share a recipe for a baked good with you all, I test it at least (what feels like) a million times. Because getting it right is important. Especially when it’s something as yummy and esteemed (treasured) as banana bread.

So I’ve been working on this recipe for at least a month, probably literally made 12 loaves (friends and co-workers are all loving us and our banana bread gifts), to get it just right. And we’ve made it. The recipe is ready and I cannot wait for you guys to get your hands on this banana bread. It’s tender, moist, the perfect texture, just the right amount of sweet, and SO GOOD. Or as the name proclaims, the best 😉
