So much I want and need to do and so little time, that seems to be a trend this week and I hate that. The poor pups get clingy and I feel guilty for not getting them out on long enough walks before rushing to work in the mornings.
I’m looking forward to more weekend time after this weekend’s half marathon. As much as I love running an am a little bummed to not be doing the California International Marathon this year, I’m glad to have more time to focus on speed training, shorter fun races, and other projects when I’m not working – like creating healthier recipes.
I love thick and creamy dressings, especially ones that pack a flavorful kick. This simple, taco-themed hemp seed blender dressing does just that with festive seasonings and a thick texture for coating without oil or crazy preservatives.

It has a warm, golden color with warming flavors, perfect for cooler weather salads.
